Region : Malaysia

Model : TL-WA5210G

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : 4.4.5 Build 111209 Rel.40972n

ISP : tm unifi high speed broadband

good day all..

i need a wifi connection for 300 user and in around 1km range only..
i have 10mbps high speed broadband connection here..
i already bought and configure :

1. asus rt-n66u gigabit router
http://www.asus.com/Networking/RTN66U/
ip - 192.168.1.1

2. tp-link tl-wa5210g - access point
http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-WA5210G
ip - 192.168.1.254

3. tp-link tl-ant2415d - outdoor antenna
http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-ANT2415D

4. tp-link 3 Meters Antenna Extension Cable TL-ANT24EC3S
http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-ANT24EC3S

the reseller said i can reach between 15-50km wifi range with this deployment..
(as shown on the product description)

but it seems my asus router wifi range bigger than this tp-link tl-wa5210g access point..
i already try all wireless mode in this access point but all failed..
i trie set it as ap only, client, repeater and universal repeater.. all failed..

because i cannot get more than 100 meter range even with or without the outdoor antenna..
the tp link access point antenna alignment also dont show any signal...

i think all setting was right because i can access to the internet from my router or tp-link A.P SSID..
the problem is.. the tp-link AP wifi range too low...

i do meet tp-link technical support this evening to help me solve this problem..
but they also dont have a clue...
some say they can get around 3 to 5km range using this tp-link tl-wa5210g - access point..

anybody.. please help me...

Known bug on 5210
try this and come back an report.
Set 5210 as AP
set internal antenna to Vertical
we don't know how your 5210is set up outdoors, so make sure is tilted down to the area you want to cover, the Beamwidth of 5210 is
Horizontal: 60 Vertical: 30
5210 send strongest signal to the front, and some backwards, just curios check how far you get the signal from 5210 back (i wander if at factory they wrong placed internal antennas)
About your 300 user connection, with one 5210 forget it, project is over your head
the reseller said i can reach between 15-50km wifi range he is a sales man not your buddie
i do meet tp-link technical support this evening to help me solve this problem..
but they also dont have a clue... what a surprise

i really disappointed when :
1. the sales person dont have a technical support to give me any suggestion.
2. the tp-link support center is just like a fresh graduate with no experience..
because he said my a.p is faulty and replacement unit arrive in 2 weeks..

but its ok.. at lease i still learn a new thing..
dont buy tp-link anymore heheee

Zaha to answer your comment dont buy tp-link anymore heheee on post #5
First one to blame your reseller, he knew from start your Wisp would not work.
Second to blame you, should research before embarking
As you posted, you have learn a new thing, do not believe all posted in propaganda
