Hi. Recently some Cisco Aironet 1200 WAPs were donated to the school that I teach at. They came from an anonymous donor and didn't come with any antenna's. After doing some research I learned that Cisco pro wireless devices switch the polarity of the signal feeding out to the antenna thus forcing Cisco to use a different type of antenna. I have found a couple antennas that fit on the connectors, but I am unsure that they are the right kind, and not wanting to burn out the radio in the WAP I have decided to get some replacement antenna's for all 5 of the WAPs.

Some searching on the Internet has revealed that Cisco is charging as much as $100 per antenna. Since the school I work for is seriously low on funds, anything above $20 an antenna is for the most part, to much. Would any of you know of where I could get some antennas for $20 or less? I would really appreciate it.
