Re: Using Antennas with the AP 1100

AP 1100 is a diversity system with two integrated 2.2 dBi dipole antennas. AIR-ANT4941 :Omni-directional-Single dipole antenna with an RP-TNC connector. The antenna providesindoor omni-directional coverage and is for use in the 2400-2500 MHz frequency band.It is for use with all radios that utilize an RP-TNC antenna connector. Unlike isotropic antennas, dipole antennas are real antennas (dipole antennas are standard on Aironet Access Points, Base Stations and Workgroup Bridges). Dipole antennas have a different radiation pattern compared to isotropic antennas. The dipole radiation pattern is 360 degrees in the horizontal plane and 75 degrees in the vertical plane (assuming the dipole antenna is standing vertically) and resembles a donut in shape. Because the beam is "slightly" concentrated, dipoleantennas have a gain over isotropic antennas of 2.14 dB in the horizontal plane.

thanks man , but can you connect omni and yagi antennas with the AP 1100 , I do not see an interface (RP-TNC)

on the AP1100 .

The AP1200 is designed to support external antenna. It sounds like this is what you'll want to replace your AP350s.
