I'm planning for outside shop access and want to do a coverage map showing a 120 degree external antenna. The planning tool (map) only allows you to pick the AP170 with the antenna's that come in the kit. How do you change it to show the coverage using one of your accessory external antennas?

Unfortunately it is not currently possible to specify antennas other than the stock omnidirectional antennas that come in the AP170 antenna kit in the planning/coverage tool. There is an internal feature request to add support for both the two sector and directional antennas that we sell as optional accessories for the AP170 to the tool. If this request gets approved, it is possible that it could become a candidate for a future release, but Product Management has the final say in these matters.

Hope this helps
