Is there a way to tell remotely if an antenna has been connected to a specific radio interface (just as you are able to see a serial cable connected to a serial interface) ?

Thank You,

(Assuming you mean a couple autonomous APs versus several APs connected in a LWAPP system).

Aside from looking for the RSSI (Signal Strength indicators) and making an educated guess, I'm pretty sure there's not.

Good Luck

Well if they are 1242 ap's, the b/g side is where the console and ethernet goes, a is on the other side and is closer together. Is this what you are looking for?

Not really - I am looking for a "show *" way of telling remotely wether any antenna has been connected to the antenna port. I am not trying to locally identify the physical ports available on the access point.
