Wall Mounting a 1250

Answered Question

Has anyone looked into wall-mounting an Aironet 1250? We do not have ceilings in most locations which we can hang APs or antennas from, so I'm at a loss for how exactly we're going to use the 1250.

Hi Jeff,


Sorry about that, I took this literally :)


I think you can mitigate the Radiation Pattern question;


For the 2.4GHz Radio instead of using;


AIR-ANT2422DG-R non-articulated dipole Gain (dBi) 2.2

You could use;


AIR-ANT4941 **articulating dipole Gain (dBi) 2.2


For the 5.0GHz Radio instead of using;


AIR-ANT5135DG-R non-articulated Gain (dBi) 3.5


You could use;


AIR-ANT5135D-R **articulating dipole Gain (dBi) 3.5


From this excellent Guide;

You might also try the new antennas being introduced with the Cisco Aironet 1250 Series.


AIR-ANT2430V-R=

2.4-GHz 3 dBi Triple Omni Antenna *3 RP-TNC


AIR-ANT5140V-R=

5-GHz 4 dBi Triple Omni Antenna *3 RP-TNC


From this good Q & A;

Hi Jeff,


The 1250 can be Wall Mounted and does ship with the proper bracket for Ceiling or Wall Mounting;


AIR-AP1250MNTGKIT = AP1250 Access Point Ceiling/Wall Mount Bracket Kit

This doc shows the method for Wall Mounting and gives a nice Step by Step;

If I use the AIR-ANT2422DG-R antennas and mount the access point on the wall, doesn't this result in a radiation pattern which is perpendicular to the floor?


I guess my question is more about how to mount the AP to a wall *and* get a good radiation pattern out of the antennas, not about how to mount the AP to the wall.

That first guide is just what I needed. I couldn't find any documentation that said the 4941s were supported.


I am considering working with our enclosure manufacturer to design an enclosure which would allow us to mount the 2430 and/or 5140 to the enclosure. Being able to use the articulating antennas without running into potential FCC Part 93 violations is a relief.
