AP-ANT-38: Cross or Co Polarization & Gain

[ Edited ]

Should the AP-ANT-38 with the IAP-224 be setup for cross or co-polarization? I can't find anything in the documentation.

 

 Additionally, what should the antenna gain be set to?

Gain should be set to 7.5dBi. The antenna has 3 elements integrated in to the unit itself, and is already polarized (+45 / V / -45)

Thanks! A couple of questions still.

I'm on firmware 6.5.3.1. I've set the gain with the CLI but it only shows in the CLI, not the GUI. When setting in the GUI, it continues to show as zero:

I have tried in multiple browsers.

 

What I was trying to ask with the polarization questions is what to select here:

Ah, that's new, chose cross polarization. Not sure about the zero for gain, but the CLI is likley more reputable. I will see if anyone on my team has a 6.5.3.1 IAP with external connectors and if they see the same behavior.
