881 W -A -K9 with 802.11n

It doesnt have any wireless antenna's. The one I thought I ordered had antenna's is this a extra added accessory i need to order. It appears on the back that there isnt even a place to connect them.

Based on your serial number this box was manufacturered in February 2012.

That's wierd that there's no radio socket.  It's got to be a manufacturing "bug".  I recommend that you raise a TAC Case and send this latest photo to them.  The photo clearly shows that it's a "W" but there's no radio antenna sockets.

"sh inventory" will tell you whether or not you ordered the router with or without the WAP.

Thanks for reply!

Its has an embedded AP but no external antenna's. The range is horrible. I do have it set to max power.

Turn OFF the radio if you don't have antennas or you'll risk "burning" the transmitters.

Can you take a picture of the back?

One more thing, I need to see the FIRST SEVEN digits (left to right) of your Serial Number.   You can blank out the last four alpha-numeric.
