1 antenna with 3502p

  Dear All,

Question: If I use just one omni antenna AIR-ANT2506 instead of the recommended three with the  AIR-CAP3502P-E-K9, will it work? If yes will it affect the range of the signal ? or just performance ?

Thanks

Definetely this will impact performance & you won't get any 802.11n data rates (as of single antenna)

right. but will this affect the range of the signal ? or only performance ? I'm guessing performance would be 802.11g

You loose diversity so reliability can be an issue. You loose ClientLink so it will affect the coverage your clients may get at the edge of your cell. Single antenna is okay for outdoor applications but not recommended for indoor.

you need to connect the antenna to the 'Tx Rx' antenna port and make sure to disable other antenna ports from WLC.
