    WBS210 is an outdoor base station mostly used for long-range links with sector or dish antennas. Are you using the WBS for its PPPoE feature in AP Router mode (b/c you have a modem connected to it)?

    If this is the reason for choosing the WBS as indoor AP, take a look at the TL-ANT2410MO omnidirectional antenna, which might be better suited to supply client devices in an indoor scenario: http://www.tp-link.com.au/products/details/TL-ANT2410MO.html

    ou would have to configure it this way then (AP Router mode, not AP mode):

    Note that although the picture shows a CPE, it's the same mode/setup you would use with a WBS and external antenna.
