Cisco Aironet 802.11a/b/g PCI cards

Fri Jun 18, 2004 7:05 pm

hi folks,

anyone using these beasts? They're Cisco's, I'd like to see their -72dBm/54Mbps sensitivity in real world, but they are just too expensive for us to buy. Anyone with comparation of link behaviour before and after upgrade to Cisco?

thnx, mp3turbo.

Cisco a/b/g cards are based on their own Radiata chipset (company that they purchased a while ago). Nothing to do with Atheros.

As always, their chipset may be better for end-user applications, as they are not likely to release API etc.

I used it.

AIR-352 (350 series) and 340 series
it not so good. ( I used it for close range 1-3 km)

"Orinoco gold" better what cisco for middle range (2-7km) IMHO.

hello daniel,

they are probably not using radiata, because atheros lists them on their partner page :) btw, mikrotik 2.8.9 added some world mode support for aironet cards, but it is not specified which ones.

bye, mp3turbo.
