First time Wireless bridge builder!


Got my soccerclub 3 Aironet 1300 to cover ticketsales from non LAN-connected entrances.

i noticed two coax on both the bridge and the powerinjector

these 2 will not be assambled.

The powerinjector will be indoors.

Do i have to use both connectors

to connect the bridge or is it ok to use only 1 cable? (there was just one 400/600 low loss cable in the package.

Re: First time Wireless bridge builder!

Hi Johan,

If I understand correctly, the power injector will be installed indoors and the 1300 outdoors by a stadium entrance? If this is correct you will want to order Dual coaxial cable to run from the power injector to the 1300. See attached notes:

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Access Point/Bridge Power Injector

The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge Power Injector,converts the standard 10/100 BaseT Ethernet interface that is suitable for weather protected areas to a dual F-Type connector interface for coax cables that are more suitable for harsh outdoor environments. The Power Injector also provides power to the outdoor unit over the same cables with a power discover feature and surge protection. To support longer cable runs from your wireless network switch or router, the Power Injector enables total cable runs up to 200 meters (Category 5 Cable + Coax). The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge ships with the Power Injector LR2 and an AC power supply.

Ethernet Ports

The access point/bridge dual-coax Ethernet ports consists of a pair of 75-ohm F-type connectors, linking the unit to your 100BASE-T Ethernet LAN through the power injector. The dual-coax cables are used to send and receive Ethernet data and to supply inline 48-VDC power from the power injector to the access point/bridge.


The access point/bridge receives inline power from the Cisco Aironet Power Injector (hereafter called the power injector). Dual-coax cables are used to provide Ethernet data and power from the power injector to the access point/bridge. The power injector is an external unit designed for operation in a sheltered environment, such as inside a building or vehicle. The power injector also functions as an Ethernet repeater by connecting to a Category 5 LAN backbone and using the dual-coax cable interface to the access point/bridge.

F-Type Connectors

Dual coaxial cable carries full-duplex Ethernet, DC power, and full-duplex console port (RS-232 connection)

Hope this helps! Let me know if I have misinterpreted your design.
