MSM 410 access points have omnidirectional antenna

Grab a copy of the "MSM422 Access Point Antenna Technical Note" PDF from here
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual〈=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12883&prodSeriesId=3836407#2
It has diagrams showing you how to best position the flaps depending on how your are mounting the unit (roof or wall).

Great link Mark, allthough the 422 is a different shaped AP than 410.

Cenk; yes but do you know which way they are alligned in the AP casing? I guess this would affect the way the signal is propagated when mounting them on a wall as to in a roof.

Re: HP MSM410 Positioning

No thats not what I meant. I want to know which way the antennas are alligned in the chassie to do the site plan. Depending on how they are alligned they are best mounted on walls or in roofs.
