This antenna is compatible with any 2.4-GHz Cisco Aironet device with an RP-TNC connector.
The antenna has an articulated base that can be rotated 360 degrees at the connection point and from 0 to 90 degrees at its knuckle. The articulated base is shown in the following illustration.
Installing the Antenna
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.
