Aironet 1200

I am in the process of adding the g radio upgrade kit, AIR-MP21G-A-K9 to an older Aironet 1200 b radio. Does the g upgrade kit support the AIR-ANT1728 antenna? I currently have two AIR-ANT4941 antennas on the b radio and would like to boost my Aironet's broadcast range by going with a stronger omnidirectional antenna - thus my reason for picking the Air-Ant1728. If the Air-Ant1728 does not work on this upgr, what antenna would you recommend?

Thank you,

Re: Aironet 1200

Hi Thomas,

Yes, you should be good to go with the 1728. The 1728 is a 2.4 GHz product with RP-TNC connectors that we have used in many areas with good success. Have a look;

802.11g Radio Modules

IEEE 802.11g-compliant

Mini-PCI form factor

2.4 GHz operation

Up to 54 Mbps

**Dual RP-TNC connectors** for externally attached antennas (antennas sold separately).

Requires Cisco IOS Software image version 12.2(13)JA or later.

The 2.4 GHz radios do not come with antennas; they must be ordered separately. Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access points are certified for operation only with Cisco Aironet antennas. To ensure regulatory compliance, select Cisco Aironet antennas for use with Cisco 1200 Series access points.

AIR-ANT1728 (Omnidirectional) Ceiling-mount indoor antenna with **RP-TNC connector**-This antenna was designed for WLAN applications with frequencies of 2400-2500 MHz. The antenna is omni directional and has a nominal gain of 5.2 dBi. It comes with a clip that allows it to be mounted to a drop-ceiling cross member.

From this good Antenna Reference doc;

Rob,

Thank you for the information above, very helpful. Where can I find the ISO level? I searched everywhere on set up menu, but no success.

Thank you,

Re: Aironet 1200

Hi Tom,

Glad to help! You have kind of lost me here? Are you referring to this?

Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points, Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JA

Protocol Filters

Excerpt: "In each table, the Protocol column lists the protocol name, the Additional Identifier column lists other names for the same protocol, and the ISO Designator column lists the numeric designator for each protocol."

From this doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps430/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a0080606d3a.html

Or are you looking for a reference to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards?

Let me know,

Rob

Re: Aironet 1200

Hi Thomas,

You can find the IOS level from the CLI by using the Show Version (sh ver) command within the enable mode.

The access point also has a web interface feature. Using the web interface choose the System Configuration link, then select Upgrade. The current IOS level is displayed on this page.
