Have a question that I was hoping someone could help me with. I have recently installed a 1262AP. It is up and working great, on the inside of the building. I had the idea that I would purchase 2 antenna, one for inside the building and one for outside. The antenna I got for the outside is a AIR-ANT2506 2.4 GHz, 5.2dBi Omnidirectional Mast mount antenna. I finally got the antenna up on the outside of the building today, took my laptop outside, and NOTHING!! Well, I thought perhaps I had it plugged in to the wrong side of the AP. I moved it, still nothing. I have reloaded the AP, and anything else I can think of, but still stuck with no signal outside. Do I perhaps have the wrong antenna type? Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Keep in mind the 1260 model access points are only supported by Cisco with antennas up to 6bBi. Anything higher you could break FCC rules of 1 watt. This is becuase the 1262 at max power can TX at 200mW. So a little RF math ..
200mW+6dBi = 800mW
Keep in mind your clients typically TX at 40-60mW.
So becareful not to max power the APs.
