Can a AIR-ANT2460P-R be used with a Cisco 2802E AP?
I have a unique situation where it is extremely difficult to replace the existing three AIR-ANT2460P-R, which are connected to a single 1242 AP; each antenna is in a separate aisle of environmentally controlled room (each antennas has a 20-foot extension). Basically, can I keep these same antennas when I replace the 1242 with a 2802 AP?
Thanks in advance!
Wouldn't just "turning off" each antenna in the "Antenna Parameters" configuration settings on the AP radio work as well? Is the radio pattern just physicis, in that I mean there's nothing stopping you from using an 5GHz Antenna on a 2,4GHz band (and vice versa). It might not be designed for it and you might get odd behavior but to some degree it should still work right?
