Our site's access points are a majority of 1242APs with some 1230s. They all are using external diversity antennas. Noticed that the controllers list under the details of all a/b/g radios as having 0 x 0.5dmb gain.
WCS shows the same gain value, and also shows 4941 (rubber-duck) models for the 802.11b/g types, and 5135d-r models for the 802.11a types.
Selecting the proper models that are actually in place - 2010's and 5170's, the gain is increased. One b/g radio I tested this on now shows 12 x 0.5dmb = 6dmb current gain.
I was pretty sure a higher gain with directional antenna's is a good thing, but not sure in the world of lwapp and auto-rf. I guess the controllers may be showing those other models as default because they have no gain to begin with? Just want to get some input before I consider correcting the values at my sites. Thanks in advance
