range with AP1200 (running 802.11b) not as good as the AP 350

We did a customer survey at a warehouse site using the Aironet 350, to find how many APs required and Antenna types. By the time the customer was ready to place the order the Aironet 1200 was available, so he decided to go with the new box so he could upgrade at a later date. But when the installation was done, we found the coverage was not so good ( dead spots).

According to the specifications when using the 2.4 Ghz, 802.11b the 1200 and 350 are the same. Is there any impedance difference that effects the antennas

we are using a mixture of ANT 3213,1728,4941, and 2012 antennas

Can anybody help?

Re: range with AP1200 (running 802.11b) not as good as the AP 35

The 350 and 1200 should be working the same as far as the coverage. You might want to check the configuration of the 1200 and make sure that the transmit level is set to the maximum and check the firmware on the device to see if it matches the 350's firmware. Another possibility could be that something was introduced into the customers environment in between the time you did the original site survey and the time that you installed the 1200's that might be causing some interferrence.
