Aironet 1230

I buy a Antenna AIR-ANT5160V-R and connect to AP but i can't connect any users to the AP. I have 2 antennas of 2.4bdi and all my users can connect at AP when i install in AP.I need something to configurate into the AP for my new antenna of 6 dbi?

Re: Aironet 1230

The AIR-ANT5160V-R antenna is a 5GHz antenna, are you connecting it to a 5GHz radio (A band) in the AP?

not i use only G band

Re: Aironet 1230

That may well be your problem! I think this is the closest 2.4GHz antenna to the one you have:

AIR-ANT2450V-N

For more information on the antennas available try this link:

Re: Aironet 1230

I have 2 AIR-ANT4941 2.4 GHZ, 2.2 dBi so if i connect this antennas anyone can connect but if only connect AIR-ANT5160V-R any user can't connect to AP. i will like to use only my new antenna so i don't know if my new antenna works or is damage or only need configurate into the configuration of my AP.

Re: Aironet 1230

You've got a 2.4GHz radio and a 5GHz antenna. The two are not compatible. For a 2.4GHz radio you will need to purchase a 2.4GHz antenna. Simple as that.

Re: Aironet 1230

Ok but i have in my AP the connector for 5Ghz

Re: Aironet 1230

OK, you did say earlier you were only using 2.4GHz. Does the AP have two sets of antenna connectors? If so you have an A/B/G AP and you can connect your 5GHz antenna to the A radio connector. Next question is do your client radios run at 5GHz as well? If not, no connection. If they do, have you configured an SSID, etc, etc on the AP's A radio and enabled the radio interface? They are normally disabled by default.

Re: Aironet 1230

yes i have two sets of antenna connectors 2 for 2.4 GHZ and 2 for 5 GHZ. Yes all users have 5GHZ. i configurate into AP SSID, etc, etc and A radio is disable.

Re: Aironet 1230

This may be a dumb question but have you tried enabling the A radio in the AP? Also, set the antenna connector to right primary and connect your antenna to the right primary stub on the AP.
