IAP304 and external antenna



We ordered only one antenna (Ref: AP-ANT-19).

I would like to know which port should I connect to? (ANT0, ANT1 or ANT2).


Thank you for your reply.


Re: IAP304 and external antenna

You will need 3. While you can connect a single antenna, it will require a number of special settings and some 50ohm RPSMA terminators (dummy loads) to prevent damaging the radio from running disconnected antennnas. Additionally, you will basically operate at 1x1 with no MIMO, and 3dB down on both the transmit and receive side, effectively cutting your range by half.
