Hi, I have been given a 2 x 4402 WLC and 25 x 1242AG LAP to deploy. None of the LAP came with Antenna's. They are to be deployed in an office environment. Would the lack of antenna's prevent me from mounting above the suspended ceiling, or should they go on internal walls instead? I have been unable to do a site survey yet as it is still a building site.
You know, I don't think there are any 1242's with Integrated Antennas :(
"The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series Access Point is an IEEE 802.11a/b/g fixed-configuration, dual-band access point. Built in to the access point are two radios, each with ***dual antenna connectors for diversity."
You would need something like the 1130 Series (with Built-in Antenna).
This does mean that you will require the External Antennas for use with the 1242.
Hope this helps!
