    Posted Dec 10, 2014 03:25 AM


    I want to install AP 104 with external antenna-18 using only one spatial stream (chain 0), do I connect ANT-18 to R0/A0 and R1/A0 using both 2.4HGz and 5GHZ??.


    Can I use any cable from ANT-18 except the central cable interchangeably to connect to port R0/A0 and R1/A0?


    Is there some way to disable chain 1 for AP 104??.


    What is the correct configuration to do it?.


    Thank you

    Hi Friend,


    Here is the method to identify and connect Ant-18 to AP104,



    AP 104 has 4 connectors which are used for external antennas and out of 4 connectors; 2 for each band/radio.

    User-added image
    Antenna connector mapping:

    R0/A0: Radio 0 (5 GHz), chain 0
    R0/A1: Radio 0 (5 GHz), chain 1
    R1/A0: Radio 1 (2.4 GHz), chain 0
    R1/A1: Radio 1 (2.4 GHz), chain 1

    Comming to Ant-18 connections,




    Hope got clarity on this,
