Upgrade Cisco 1242AG to newer model with gigabit connection
Posted on 2014-01-29
We have a warehouse with about 10 wireless PCs that connect to a Cisco 1242AG access point that is equipped with 2 AIR-ANT2506 antenna. All clients have 802.11G cards in them and have good reception pretty much anywhere in the building, although the signal does get weak in the corners of the building.
We do have some regular issues with the PCs that I am assuming are network related and was thinking about upgrading the access points with a newer version with a gigabit port.
My question is, the access point that I am looking at (1252AG) have 6 antenna connections on them. Would this work with the existing 2 antenna or should I purchase a different antenna for it?
Is there a better suited antenna for a warehouse, 300' x 150' with 35' ceilings? The current access point and antennas are located in the middle of the warehouse about 10' off the ground.
Would like to keep it to one access point if possible.
