Configuring 1300 to use External Antenna

On the 1310 bridge, when you enable “External Antenna”, you are then asked to configure the Antenna Gain (dB). I am using a 13.5 dBi Yagi. My question is, what do I enter in this field? The field only lets me use whole numbers. Thank you for any assistance.

Fortunately for you, I just finished installing a bridge. The answer is 13. Leave off the .5. Hope this helps!!! Another key factor is making sure to include the username and password under EAP Client username and password. It's not optional if using security; which I'm sure your doing. Have a great one!

Re: Configuring 1300 to use External Antenna

Thank you; I have another question I hope you can help me with. This is my first bridge. I'm using 100' antenna cables and there is some extra length. I can not make the cable shorter. My question, is there a major problem with winding up the extra cable in a loop or should I lay it out? Thank you.

That field is informational only, it has no bearing on the operation of the bridge.
