Could anyone point me to some documentation on supported Wall-mount patch antenna for the HWIC-AP-G-E card?
I found this one "AIR-ANT3549", but it seems to have been EOL announced.
Any help appricieted.
Have you looked at these docs?
A pair of removable RP-TNC Swivel-mount Omnidirectional Dipole antennas included with the HWICs provides adequate range and coverage for most wireless installations. A variety of non-captive single band Cisco 2.4 GHz and multiband 2.4/5 GHz antennas are available as options to accommodate wireless installation-specific range and coverage requirements.

From this doc;
Have you checked out this guide;
Cisco Aironet Antenna Reference Guide
Are you looking for a wall mount patch just for aesthetics? We have had really good luck with the 5959 ceiling mount patch, but in many cases we have actually attached it to the wall. It is pretty "low profile" and blends in quite nicely.
Hope this helps!

Sorry I havn't had time to answer you before.
Yes, I actually have looked at the docs, I think that is why I got confused.
But I like the idea of using the AIR-ANT5959 as a wall mount antenna, because it is the most neutral looking antenna, that best blends in with the background. And if you say it works fine as a wall mount antenna, I'll go with that.
No worries! I know that we are all busy out here. The 5959 comes with about 1M of cable. Hopefully that length will work for you. If not, don't forget to order an extra run of "low loss" cable (comes in various lengths).Let us know how the antenna works for you!
