I want to deploy a WAP with an outside antenna to improve my range. After a few hours googling and reading,
can I ask some questions.
It seems that I will need an 1250 WAP, which requires 3 antennas to work correctly.
and the more promising AIR-ANT2506 which is a mast mount option. Unfortunately, they do not offer an outside mulitple
antenna mounting kit.
So if I have to fabricate something.... what sort of configuration do I use. I have checked out some of the hobbyist
web sites and there are some "spectacular" designs ;-)
Do I have to have all of the antennas in a row ? Or it does not matter.
Is the spacing between the antennas important ? If so .. what are the measurements ?
The antennas offered by Cisco have short "pigtails". So if mounting outside, I will have to use a cable
extension. How do I waterproof the join ? One of the installation guides "helpfully" mentions some
coaxial sealant. Just looks like some sort of "silastic" to me.
Your thoughts. ?
