Both 802.11b and 802.11g use the same frequency band
of 2.4 Ghz, unlike 802.11a which uses 5Ghz band. So,
two antennae, one for b & second one for g really do
not make sense... 

A little bit of googling revealed that both antennae
are used to counter effects of multipath propogation


In any case, the two antennae are not meant to
increase the range, and I think keeping one horizontal
and second vertical will not boost reception.
