I am just wondering if it matters how the cables are connected from the AP-274 to the 3x3 D608 antennas?
On the AP-274 there is the 2G0, 2G1, 2G2 and 5G0, 5G1, 5G2 for the antenna connections
And on the 3x3 D608 there is the two 45 and one Vertical connections.
Right now I have on antenna connected to the 2G connections on the AP-274 and the other antenna is on the 5G connections. But I did not pay attention to what connection is was plugging into on the Antenna. Does it matter?
Hopefully I explained this well enough.

There may be a best practice for which socket on the ap connects to what socket on the antenna, but as long as all the 2.4 GHz connect to the same antenna,you should be fine.
If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

You should be fine, the XG0, XG1, and XG2 are the primary, secondary, and tertiary chains respectively. **IDEALLY**, you would have the first two chains (XG0 and XG1) 90degrees polarized, with the third (XG2) on the 45deg element.
For Omni's, you would have:
* XG0 - Vertical
* XG1 - Horizonal
* XG2 - Vertical
For the D608, when you look at the back you should see a -45, V, and +45:
* XG0 - -45 or +45 (so long as XG0 and XG1 are 90deg polarized)
* XG1 - -45 or +45 (so long as XG0 and XG1 are 90deg polarized)
* XG2 - Vertical
Hope that helps

the omni recommendations in the previous response are correct.
3x3 antennas. Connection order is a don't care. the 3 ports on the radio may connect to the antenna in any order
if you have a 2 port antenna (example: 2314,5314), connect G0 and G1 and terminate G2
