AIR-1252 Antennas required?

Answered Question
May 27th, 2009

Hello,

Just purchased 2 AIR-LAP-1252AG-A-KP APS. I notice it has external Antenna Connectors. I have loked in the Doc but can;t find the info I am looking for. I want to use them inside a gym and was wondering if they will work without external antennas.

Thanks

Mike

I have this problem too.

Hi Mike,

Antenna Product Portfolio for Cisco Aironet 1250 Series Access Points

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps7183/ps469/at_a_glance_c45-513837.pdf

Avoid running the AP's without any antennaes or you might permanently damage the transceiver.

Hope this helps.

Hi Mike,

The 1252 does not have "built-in" Antenna/Antennas options, so external Antennas are required;

Supported Antennas are listed in this doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/1250/installation/guide/125h_c1.html

Have a look at this good thread which includes some good insight on Antenna options, from Dennis, who is very knowledgable about 11n;

Hope this helps!

SUper,

Thanks so much. Looking at the different radiation patterns really helps when figuring out which antenna I need.

Thank you.

Mike
