What is the recomended antenna direction for Aironet 1250 model? We have three antennas. And we have no choice but to fix the base device on the wall of our office. So the antennas are looking like coming out of the wall towards the office open space. All uses use notebook which is on the horizontal platforms of tables. Is this the direction / orientation correct of notebooks and aironet antennas. Or do we need to turn the antennas in the vertical direction.

DO we have any best practises available fro antenna direction on ?

If yes please let me know the URL.

Thanks in advance.

You should have then vertical. There are antennas that are dipole that are not fixed position. This will allow you to have them in a vertical position rather than horizontal.

Here are a list of the di-pole.
