Installing the Antenna


Caution This antenna operates in the 2.4-GHz frequency range. Do not connect it to 5-GHz antenna connectors, which are identified by a blue dot. Connecting this antenna to a 5-GHz connector will degrade radio performance and could damage the radio.

Follow these steps to connect the antenna to an access point.


Step 1 Align the antenna connector with the RP-TNC connector on the access point.

Step 2 Engage the antenna connector threads with the RP-TNC connector.

Step 3 Tighten the antenna hand tight.

Step 4 Adjust the antenna's articulated mount to the desired position.
