I have a small building which has two levels. I have a 1230 on the top floor and about 10 people. Below that floor is another office with 10 people. They don't all use wireless, infact its only used for guests and smartphones, tablets of which there aren't many.
I was wondering instead of sticking another unit in the downstairs office, Can I either use two anntenna's, one on each floor connected to the one controller or is there a good antenna which will do both floors?
The floor is concrete, I have one antenna attached to the right hand connector of the 1230 and can get 2 or 3 bars in the lower office. Thou as its a flat antenna this doesn't cover the part of the office directly beneath it....
Okay - is there a different antenna I could use ??
You need to rethink what you are doing. The 1230 will only do 802.11b/g. Don't expect this single unit to fully cover two floors through concrete floors because you will only get patches of signals where the WAP is NOT located. That's not how wireless is meant to be.
I know its a g based unit. Unfortantly we are a educational/charity so purchase new kit is hard sometimes. I have a spare 1230 g unit, but was trying to get away from using it if there was another way of using a high gain antenna for instance??? But your saying this wont work and that I should use two units ?

Get a wireless site survey.
Here's the situation you are going to face: You have a 1230 which has an 802.11b/g wireless network. Have you ever tried "sniffing" if can see other people's wireless network in the areas you want to use?
