Problem with Cisco Wireless AP using Aironet 1310 and mast antenna connecting to bridge AP
I have a 1310 Aironet AP with AIR-ANT24120 mast located in the middle of my complex (outdoor on a pole 50ft up). I was able to get it connected to the 1310 Aironet AP bridge at a sales office with clear line of site at 1000 ft 15 ft up on roof. All that seems to work fine. The problem I am having is Standing directly under the mast or even within 100 ft from it I do not get a signal. Will this mast just help me with the long distance connection. Am I going to have to put another AP in play right next to it for the shorter distances? Did I buy the wrong mast? I am trying to have access across most of my outdoor complex for wireless barcode scanners and stil be able to connect from the sales lot 1000 ft away. Any suggestions. Should I change my directional AP bridge on the sales lot to Wireless access? Any help would be welcome.
