Country Code

If your access point is configured for the World Regulatory Domain, it is important to set the country code to the country in which the AP will be deployed to meet regulatory requirements and for optimal wireless operation. To do this, follow these steps:

  • The country code selection is for World models only and is not available to FCC, CAN, and other country-specific models. Per FCC regulations, all Wi-Fi products marketed in the United States must be set to U.S. channels only.

The AP121 and AP141 wireless access points provide dual concurrent 802.11b/g/n and 802.11a/n radios for 2x2:2 MIMO (Multiple Input - Multiple Output) antenna configurations.

When you enable 802.11n high-throughput options such as wide-channel mode (40-MHz channels), A-MPDU and A-MSDU packet aggregation, short guard interval, and MCS15 data rates, they can provide a PHY data rate up to 300 Mbps per radio. The AP121 has four internal antennas, and the AP141 has four detachable external antennas (two 2.4 GHz and two 5 GHz in both cases). Both models have an RJ45 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, an RJ45 console port, and a USB modem port (reserved for future use).
