Yep, the 851W doesn't support the "antenna" command. Which makes sense, because the 851W only *has* one [external] antenna.
Unfortunately, it appears that we may have goofed and failed to have turned off the internal antenna that we're not using :-(
Solution: track CSCsq51158.
Once we have code with a fix, then the 851W should work better.
Note: the above assumes that this diversity issue, rather than something else, is your problem. A wireless sniff would verify.
