I have an IAP-134, but don't have any external antennas for it right now. If I deploy this in a closed office space, what is the expected RF coverage from the AP itself. I have brought it online and it broadcasts the Instant ESSID, so I know it has the ability to broadcast without the antennas, but how far?
Is it similar to a 105's internal radio performance or worse?
You barely get any RF. Don't count on any.
It's a *very* bad idea to have no antenna's connected, it might damage the radio's over time.
It will give you some coverage because all of the RF-energy is being transfered to the antenna connectors, but don't expect it to go far (I'd say a couple of meters in the same room).
