    Hi all,
    I have one AP-8533-68SB40 External Antenna. I was installed external antenna. Now, I want to show infomation about it (model of antenna, number of antenna,...)

    You would try to "ask" the AP, what antenna is connected? Not possible, antenna is a passive element. You can't get any information from the AP about the antenna.

    It's the other way, you need to inform the AP, what antenna gain you have connected.

    Hello Long,

    As Timo said, this is a passive element that does not provide any information itself. Running the command: >show wireless radio detail will provide you with some information, but never the model of the antenna itself.

    You can run the command: #help search antenna to see what command options are provided for antennas.

    You will have to enter the information yourself for example:
    #int radio 1
    # service antenna-type ?
