I am trying to setup 2 1240ap in a bridge mode using external antennas. I am wonder how you line up the antennas to obtain the best signal. I know the 1300 series has software that allows you to see a signal as you line up the antennas, but I don't think the 1240 series has that feature. Any help would be greatly appreciated

There's a couple things.

You could hook up a laptop at the receiving end and attach a directional antenna to the wireless card. Then use something like netstumbler to position everything where you want it.

I guess you could also use a laser pointer. Mount it on the top of the antenna in question, and target the receiving antenna. Obviously, have the minion you're using on the other side face AWAY from the laser pointer. ;)
