1260 options antenna 5 GHz access point?

Scenario is, I have a huge warehouse. I want to use 1260 Access Points on the walls and ceilings. ceiling is 15 m high, and the brackets are 3 m high.

What band directional 5 GHz can I use? Is there a better option?

So far with little planning, I want to have directional antennas around the walls to direct the signal between the grids. I want to fill areas with ceiling mounted APs and antennas (ideally directional patches).

All advice would be warmly received.

Hi Gary,.

You get a + 5 from me.  Thank you for this comment.  It is very, very useful.

Back to your question about directional antennas, you could use the AIR-ANT5140V and mount it on a wall.  I use the AIR-ANT5160V because you need to get the right height.  Take a look at the horizontal print and you will see.

  • RE6500HG has not detected 5 GHz dual-band access point transmission

    I have a dual band (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) access point in the living room and the RE6500HG is located in the room adjacent to the living room. During the installation of the RE6500HG could detect only the 2.4 GHz transmission and after a few tries I had to settle for a configuration unique (2.4 GHz) band.

  • DHCP option to set the controller IP for Access Points (Airespace)

    Hello world.

    Does anyone have an idea to specify the controller using DHCP options.

  • Two different antennas on a single point of access

    Hi all

    I know that the two different antennas connected by an access point are not supportet by Cisco.

    Unfortunately I can not find the document where this scenario is described.

    Does anyone know what document describes this solution?

    Thank you


    you are correct. It is actually recommended that it makes no sense that he would defeat the purpose of the diversity. If an antenna gain is higher then the other your stronger antenna is probably still favored for tx


    Diversity is the use of two antennas for each radio, to increase the chances that you get a better signal on

    either two separate but equal co-located antennas. Diversity provides relief to a wireless network

    network in a scenario of multiple paths. Diversity antennas are physically separated from the radio and the other to

    ensure that we meet less trips with multiple effects of propagation than the other. Double antennas generally to ensure

    that if an antenna is in RF null, while the other is not, which offers better performance in railways

    environments (see Figure 3). You can move the antenna around the null point and provide a means of

  • With the help of new access points with old WLC 4100; LWAPP layer 2 switching 3-tier

    Hi all

    We currently use two solutions Wiresless LAN - a 10 AP1230 access points-based autonomous (5 years) and a solution based on a Cisco WLC 4100 (4112, running 3.2) with 12 AP1010 LWAPP access points.

    First thing, we are considering to replace the stand-alone solution with the WLC one. However, I'm not sure if we can use the new access points such as the LAP1041N or the LAP1252G with our current 4100 WLC. Access reported data sheets 'Cisco Unified Wireless Network Software Release 7.0 or later version' 'software '. Does this mean that these access points can only be used with controllers running 7.0 or later?

    If we are unable to use the new access points with our current WLC and need to buy a new controller: can we use access points AP1010 current with a new WLC as the Cisco 4402?

    Second thing, it is that we want to expand the networks configured on the WLC 4100 to another site that is connected via VPN wireless. Wireless Setup guide indicates that the LWAPP mode can be changed from Layer 2 to 3 layers so that the access points can be configured with an IP address, which allows you to place access points basically anywhere as long as IP connectivity exists between the AP and the WLC.

    Y does it as described in a document with the change of mode LWAPP layer 2 to 3 layers? Or ist just the following steps (if I understand correctly):

    -Change the Mode of Transport LWAPP on the controller of layer 2 to 3 layers

    -Creation of a PA-manager interface with an IP address in the same subnet as the management interface (tried that, without changing LWAPP mode transport first and not was not possible - error)

    With regard to different sites:

    -Configure option DHCP 43 with the IP address of the WLC or DNS with CISCO-LWAPP - CONTROLLER.localdomain

    -Make sure that the interface ap - manager can reach points on the different site

    Is it really just as simple as that? All information about it is very appreciated!

    / edit: I would also like to know if the 1260 series access point are backward compatible with 802. 11B. Whereas it is stated in 1040 and 1250 for example series data sheets, it is not particularly mentioned in 1260 data sheet.

    Thank you


    Well, let's start with the simple question/answer

    With regard to different sites:

    -Configure option DHCP 43 with the IP address of the WLC or DNS with CISCO-LWAPP - CONTROLLER.localdomain

    -Make sure that the interface ap - manager can reach points on the different site

    Yes, it's as simple as that.

    As for other issues, looks like you would be better served with a forklift upgrade.  New controllers and new AP.

    Now, the AP 1230/1240/1250. all work on the 4.2, 1140 code starts with 5.2 and 1040/3500/1260 are 7.0

    The AP 1000 series is not supported after 4.2 code.

    Refer to here for the complete list of the AP and taken codes supported:


    From what I see, the 4100 is not supported after the train of 3.2.

    So, it really depends on what you are trying to accomplish with the upgrade.  If you are looking for a 80.211n support, you really want to be 5.2 or better, we had some problems with MRR + 40 Mhz channels, 4.2, 5 GHz band only.

  • Power Save Polling (PSP) leads to problems in connection with some access points

    The following symptoms may be seen if an access point Wi - Fi (AP) or router Wi - Fi broadband does not properly support the Power Save Polling (PSP) feature:

    These symptoms may be more pronounced when on battery.

    The PSP mode is a feature that provides the long battery life for laptops. It requires coordination between the AP or router and the Wi - Fi adapter. Intel has discovered that some APs or routers may not implement the feature correctly or completely.


    Heard different things people try, depending on their wireless adapter.

    Start, control panel, device, netowrk, their adapter, power management Manager. Clear the checkbox to allow windows to turn off this device to save power

    Start, control panel, device, netowrk, their adapter, advanced management. Looking for antenna diversity. Some cards have it and others don't. Replace the Auto antenna by supply diversity

    Some have disabled Wireless N of their card and achieved good results.

    Some Wireless N adapters operate ONLY on the 2.4 GHz frequency.

    Using these parameters of the recommended wireless router I use channel 11, have GREAT results. I usually recommend creating a new SSID to make the connection easier. Wireless devices also needs to connect to the NEW network.


  • Correct configuration of the Cisco Access Point 1242AG

    Hi all

    Here's the situation:

    Recently, we decided to create a small network of WLAN in our company. We choose the Cisco AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 with 2x2.4GHz 2.2dbi rotating dipole antenna.

    For better management, a new VLAN routable (ID:20) added to our router IP and SNET

    Then, I made the following configurations in the autonomous AP through WEB Console:

    • Static IP:, SNET:, GWY:
    • Vlan1 (native) and VLAN20 (Radio0 - 802.11 g) added in Services.
    • I put the encryption against zero for VLAN1 Mode and cipher AES-CCMP for VLAN20
    • In Server Manager, I've defined a new RADIUS server (AP-IP) and a secret shared and left the default ports for authentication and accounting (1645 and 1646). Also, in the default server priorities section I put focused 1 time for authentication EAP and the IP (Radius Server) Access Point MAC.
    • During the General local RADIUS server configuration, I add as a server for access to the network current (AAA client) the same IP address and the shared secret as the ones I use during the configuration of the RADIUS server above. In authentication protocols enable I left checked only the JUMP and the Mac. In addition, in the users individual section 2 new users created with passwords.
    • In the SSID Manager a new hidden SSID created for interface Radio0 - 802.11 g, associated with VLAN20 and in the Client authentication settings section, I left as accepted authentication open with MAC and EAP authentication method. Also, I left the option to use by default for EAP and MAC authentication servers in Server priorities Section and finally I choose mandatory for key management in the section Client authenticated and active the option enable WPA key management.

    I can ping VLAN20 IPs from any PC which is a member of the VLAN native both AP

    As wireless clients, I use 2 Motorola MC5574 with Windows Mobile 6.1 professional. Both of them have a WLAN Jedi adapter that is configured with the following:

    IPs: and



    In addition, a unique profile has been created on all of them to use for the authentication of the association AP. Each profile has been configured for WPA2-Enterprise with AES and LEAP and identification information predefined user (those defined in the PA for individual users)

    The problem:

    Association of clients with AP is always successful but, authentication fails, and I can't ping the AP IP, IP VLAN20, nor the other customers.

    What I'm missing here? I'm sure it's quite simple somenthing but although I tried several different configurations (even WPA - PSK, WPA2-PSK with TKIP) I always find myself without an appropriate solution to unable to ping.

    Thanks in advance for any help


    Can you please paste the show run out of AP?

    Kind regards


  • connect the PC to the dedicated access point


    Is in the WLAN network as two configured SSID, one for a printers and another for a PC. It is possible to ping the printer form LAN but not PC WLAN. It is not the ACL set. Is no chance of routing between WLAN on WLC? The firewall is a layer 3 device in the network.

    The controller is 2112 with 7.0.98 version of the software and all APs are in local mode. The network is flat with 16 bit mask.

    The second problem is that on the Wi - Fi network that precedes some AP (1231) are converted to standalone AP mode LAP.
    The network has been added to an another TOWER 1242 with external antenna.
    A PC with WI - Fi wants to connect to the new TOWER even has a bad signal.
    1231 model has only one external antenna and is closer than 1242.
    How do to impose this PC is always connect to 1231, is possible to configure on WLC?


    Hi Kelly,

    1) check on the 'blocking of the peer to peer' option on the configuration of your SSID. You want to disable.

    (2) the customer himself decides where it wants to connect. If she's stupid drivers that make it to connect to an access point not 'best' you can not do much.

    Only things you can do:

    -updated client drivers

    -enable or disable the load balancing across WLC. There is no best setting. Basically load balancing prevents clients to connect to APs that are already occupied. So, if it is currently enabled, maybe your AP 1230 is occupied?

  • My Airport Time Capsule can act as a WIRELESS access point


    I brought a Time Capsule with my Mac Pro. It worked well since yesterday.

    I have set up the time Capsule as a WIFI, bypass at my local network access point. There is a router (cable) works at home.

    It's my Mac Pro AirPort Utility and my iPhone, my Time Capsule is displayed with an exclamation point saying "device not found". I can't connect to the disk on this subject by afp share, or smb. Time Machine function is gone too. He failed trying to connect to the share drive from another computer connected to the time Capsule by cable network.

    But at the same time, WiFi works well.

    I tried to recycle energy. Sharing disk will be available. But if I start the Time Machine backup, it will not be a few seconds.

    Any idea?

    Thank you.

    There are several posts here related the issue.

    Luckily, you have set up your new Time Capsule for Back to My Mac (BTMM)?

    If so, the 'temporary' solution is to delete/disable the option of the CCMM, as follows:

    • Run the AirPort Utility.
    • Select the base and then station, select change.
    • On the tab of the Base Station, go back to the section of my Mac at the bottom of the window.
    • If you have entries here, select it and click then the minus sign "-" button to remove it.
    • Click on update and allow the base station restart.

    If you have not enabled CCMM, we have other options for you to try.

  • Time Capsule bridge and access point?


    I have a question about the network wireless of my TC. Our provider has installed a new router. These router can not work as bridge, telephone and TV are also connected to this router. Because 2 wifi networks do not work, I wonder what is the best set-up for the network? The Capsule is connected to the router by ethernet. It is configured as a gateway. Before I used the TC to connect to internet. Now, I have disabled the wi - fi function and use the ISP connection. It looks good, only backups are a little slow now.

    -What is the best configuration for the TC in an existing network? So that I can put it off the wireless of the TC or the ISP router: can I use the TC-wifi (create a new network) or wifi existing ISP router to connect with wireless devices?

    -Do I lose speed when I'm with 2 devices on my network: TC as the ISP as a router and Access Point.

    (I always thought that 1 unit for router and access point is the best configuration.)

    -Are faster backup copies using the TC wireless or it does not matter when I backup on the wireless ISP?

    Some maybe stupid questions, but thanks in advance. Greetings.

    Because 2 wifi networks do not work

    Many people think that this is the case... but this isn't so.

    You can use several wireless networks... all attached to the same router. There is enough bandwidth available in the channels wireless for the operation of 3 different wireless networks nearby each other... and using 5 GHz adds much more.

    The Capsule is connected to the router by ethernet. It is configured as a gateway. Before I used the TC to connect to internet. Now, I have disabled the wi - fi function and use the ISP connection. It looks good, only backups are a little slow now.

    The configuration of TC in bridge is correct.

    Do not turn off the TC wireless... Provide a different name for the ISP wireless router and connect your computer... then you can get internet and make backups on the TC without overloading the ISP router wireless.

    -What is the best configuration for the TC in an existing network? If I disable the wireless of the TC or the ISP router:

    Turn on Wi - Fi in both.

    A physical configuration, it is recommended to have say separation of 1 M (3 feet) between the ISP router and the TC to a min. But it would be even better to have the TC at near the Mac who performs backups TM and related to the ISP router with ethernet.

  • Satellite P875 - 32L - is unable to reconnect to the last connected WIFI access point

    I have a problem to reconnect to the last connected WLAN provider, with my Satellite P875 32 L.
    WLAN is switched on and shows all the neighbors access points, but it fails to whoever I logged before the reboot, or before you go to the rescue of the list.

    I'm going in service options for WLAN, sometiimes up to 5 times, then it undermines meet usually.
    It's well annoying.

    I have had this with the other 30 satellite of P870 too, but something so this behavior have disappeared. So there must be a solution.


    You're talking about your private Wlan at home?
    If you had the same problem using another laptop too, it could be possible that this isn't a problem with the network s laptop wireless card or Wlan configuration but with the WLan router.

    You should definitely reset/reboot the rooter.
    In addition, check the settings of the IP router and or mac address filtering.
    Change also the type of encryption and Wlan channel.

    You have to try different combination turn off just to test the WiFi encryption and check if the laptop would connect to the Wlan open correctly.
    But the Wlan encryption must always be defined in order to avoid improper use of the Wlan access point.

  • Cannot connect by Satellite L300 wireless access point

    Can someone shed light on this problem because the laptop is only two weeks old?

    Thank you...


    To connect the laptop to the WLan, it must ensure that everything is enabled and configured correctly.
    You should check these points:

    -activated the WLan with the WLan switch and the FN + F8
    -don t use any 3rd party config tools WLan if you use the WLan configuration options own Vista
    -for the first test WLan disable the security settings of the Wlan router
    -configure settings to laptop as good SSID and search for your wireless local area network
    -After that the laptop is connected to the WLan router, you can turn back the security settings (encryption, mac address filtering, firewall, etc.)

  • Satellite M70: I can't connect to the WLan access point

    I have several wireless laptops, all work fine - except my M70.
    I use Intel Proset, and he sees the access point, but says "unable to connect" when I try.
    The signal is high (2 meters distance).

    I tried with WEP, WPA and without security. I am absolutely convinced that I entered the right keys.
    The access point is a Belkin Pre - N-, but I tried with a point of access 3Com, with the same problem - my Ipaq, my other PC, and all guests can connect,- but not my Toshiba!
    The wireless card is the standard Intel, with the latest driver from October 2006 intalled.

    Getting desperate...


    If you get a signal strong, so I guess that the laptop is already connected to the access point. Or am I wrong?
    On my laptop, the computer WLan small icon appears only if I connected to the Wlan and then I can see the State of the signal.

    However, you suggested to use the Intel Proset utility to configure the WiFi network but on the clean Windows configuration. Have you tested it?

    This question seems very strange to me.
    Sometimes it of not possible to connect the WiFi network because of poor compatibility between the router and wireless network card.
    My router supports Wlan AB mode and my second card for computer laptop support BG.
    That's why I m not able to connect to the Wlan. Maybe it s also your case.

    On my router, I can also put the MAC address filtering. You should check this option on your router.
    But generally it is not easy to say why it happens. You know you should check every single option and if it s not possible so I guess that it s a compatibility issue.
