Installation Guidelines

Because the Access Point, base station, and bridge are radio devices, they are susceptible to RF obstructions and common sources of interference that can reduce throughput and range. Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:

Install the Access Point, base station, or bridge in an area where large steel structures such as shelving units, bookcases, and filing cabinets will not obstruct radio signals being transmitted or received.

Install the Access Point, base station, or bridge away from microwave ovens and 2-GHz cordless phones. These products can cause signal interference because they operate in the same frequency range as the Access Point, base station, or bridge.

Installation Notes

You can mount the Access Point, base station, or bridge to a wall using the mounting kit and mounting template provided. The kit contains the following parts:

Two #6 - #8 plastic wall anchors

Two #6 x 3/4" sheet-metal screws

Installation Instructions


Step 1 Use the mounting template to drill two holes in the wall. The holes should be 3/16 in. (0.48 cm) in diameter and 1 in. (2.54 cm) deep.


Note If you make a photocopy of the mounting template, make sure that the distance between the holes is 4 3/4 in. (12.06 cm) before you drill the holes. Some photocopy machines do not make exact duplicates of the original.


Step 2 Tap the wall anchors into the holes.

Step 3 Drive the screws into the wall anchors, leaving a small gap between the screw head and the anchor.

Step 4 Position the mounting holes on the bottom of the case over the screws (see Figure 1) and pull down to lock in place.

Step 5 Position the antenna so it is pointing straight up.
