AP-104 mesh 5Ghz



I'm using a 2 - AP-104 and ANT-2X2-5314 for a mesh link.


2 questions:

 - Which antenna connection should I use on the AP-104.

 - Which antenna contector should I use horizontal or vertical.




Re: AP-104 mesh 5Ghz

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

  The AP itself should have labels printed on the front cover to identify each of the antenna ports as listed above.



Both the ANT-17 and ANT-92 are 120deg dual band antennas. The ANT-17 is a directional 3x3 antenna, and you can just leave the middle connector disconnected. Or you could use the ANT-92, which is a 2x2 and put RP-SMA to N jumpers between the antenna.


You would need two of each if you are wanting to put the same coverage out there in both bands.
