MA-ANT-25 Antenna Not Diffusing Signal

Hi everyone,

 

I'm currently deploying MR74 APs with the MA-ANT-25 antennas (2 per AP). Whenever i try powering up the AP, it turns green but I see no SSID in the air. It is supposed to be a survey mode AP and is connected to my battery pack.

 

Any idea of what could be wrong ?

 

Thank you very much

Hi @rbnielsen !

 

I ended up finding what the issue was. The AP was in survey mode as expected, but for some reason the broadcasted SSID was hidden ?

 

I haven't found why and couldn't configure it differently, so I just kept going my survey knowing the SSID was hidden.

Have ensured the AP is configured in survey mode?
