Antenna options for the 891 wireless router

I'm working with a client that uses Cisco 891 wireless routers in their store locations.

As per any retail deployment, the location of the wireless router is less than ideal.

The 891 comes with dual element antennas that extend off the back of the router.

3 antennas, rp-tnc connectors.

Here is the most promising option I've found so far:

Any input on what antenna options for the 892 would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric

I should have been more specific.

The routers are located below the register.  I need an antenna that has better visibilty, thus the terra-wave unit with its' three 3' pigtails would provide more flexibilty for better anntena placement.

As it is, the router is near the ground, may have a purse, handbag or other items placed on it.  There may also be a metal trashcan very close to it, not to mention a metal cash drawer and granite counters, etc.

The AIR-ANTM2050D-R is the stock antenna that comes with the 891.  I could potentially get some short LMR cables with tpc & rp-tnc if I had to...
