Answered Question
Sep 16th, 2008

Can somebody tell me if this Acess Point, AIR-LAP1252AG-E-K9, work only with one antenna of 2.4GHz? Because in the configuration tool we are obligated to choose three but i only need one. Do i have to buy the three or can i buy one spare?

AIR-LAP1252AG-E-K9 is a 802.11n AP, 11n is based on MIMO which need more than one antenna to gain best performance, so if you want to use 11n by this AP, it is suggested to buy 3 antenna of 2.4GHz.

Yes you only need 1 anntenna however its performance and feature set will be less than ideal. However as its a Cisco product it will perform adequately

If you are looking for an ap with a single antenna, then you should look at the AIR-AP1242-G-A-K9. This ap only has a 2.4GHz radio in which you can turn off diversity and choose which antenna port you will use. Purchase the 1252 if you will buy 3 antennas per radio.... or it is sort of a waste.... in my opinion.
