1. A wireless device comprising:
at least two radios;
at least two radio frequency (RF) ports; and
an impedance detection circuit coupled to the at least two radios, wherein the impedance detection circuit is configured to:
measure a first receive signal strength indicator (RSSI) value of a first reflected signal, the first reflected signal corresponding to a first signal sent by one of the at least two radios;
determine that the first RSSI value exceeds a threshold, the threshold representing an impedance mismatch condition at or beyond at least one of the two RF ports; and
send first data to a second device indicative of the impedance mismatch condition.
