Use of external Aironet Antennas

When comparing between the 2 models of external antennas (AIR-ANT5170P-R and AIR-ANT2460P-R), I noticed that they comes with different number of connectors (RP-TNC). The AIR-ANT5170P-R comes with two connectors, while the AIR-ANT2460P-R comes with one connector.

Assuming IÂ’m using the Cisco 1242 Series Dual Radio AP, how many of the AIR-ANT2460P-R antenna do I connect to the 2.4GHz ports?

I believe I will only need to connect 1 unit of the AIR-ANT5170P-R antenna to the 5GHz port, as it already comes with two connectors.

Re: Use of external Aironet Antennas

Hi Tan,

You are on the right track here for sure :)

Why don't you try this Antenna instead of the 2460;

AIR-ANT2465P-R

Diversity Patch

Wall-mount indoor/outdoor antenna with two RP-TNC connectors-Similar to the above patch, but providing diversity antennas in the same package for areas where multipath problems exist. The pigtail cable is plenum rated and 36" long.
