Form a Drip Loop Connection for Cables

After the cables and antennas are connected to the access point, gather each cable below the access point, and form a drip loop connection. You do not need a drip loop if the LAN wire is already below the access point.


The drip loop prevents water from entering the access point by channeling water down and away from the connection points. Drip loops are required to ensure proper operation of the access point.
