    Sure, just set an appropriate default route in the DHCP server of the WA7210 AP Client Router.

    Thank you very much! Now what's left is to buy the TL-ANT2424B and connect it to wa7210n

    I have a issue with the tp-link wa7210n. Disconnect Wi-Fi on my devices for a while and then come back and do it this thing:/

    Can you describe it in more detail? What topology, which antennas in use, what kind of disconnect at what distance to the AP, which angle to the AP and so on ...

    I have this problem REQUEST/Send ACK spam and connection dropping... operation mode Ap client router The bad thing is that there are obstacles and maybe this is where I get a weak signal and create this problem. Usually it does to me when it's raining, else times it works properly.The distance is about 50 meters from the router where I get the signalThe log : Level Log Content156 1st day 01:36:58 DHCP NOTICE DHCPS:Send ACK to 192.168.0.111155 1st day 01:36:58 DHCP NOTICE DHCPS:Recv REQUEST from 40:40:A7:60:EF:5B154 1st day 01:36:57 DHCP NOTICE DHCPS:Send OFFER with ip 192.168.0.111153 1st day 01:36:57 DHCP NOTICE DHCPS:Recv DISCOVER from 40:40:A7:60:EF:5B152 1st day 01:35:14 DHCP NOTICE Dynamic IP(DHCP Client) obtained an IP successfully151 1st day 01:35:14 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC:GET ip:192.168.1.2 mask:255.255.255.0 gateway:192.168.1.1 dns1:192.168.1.1 dns2:0.0.0.0 static route:0150 1st day 01:35:14 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Recv ACK from server 192.168.1.1 with ip 192.168.1.2 lease time 259200149 1st day 01:35:13 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send REQUEST to server 192.168.1.1 with request ip 192.168.1.2148 1st day 01:35:13 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Recv OFFER from server 192.168.1.1 with ip 192.168.1.2147 1st day 01:35:13 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 1146 1st day 01:35:11 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 1145 1st day 01:35:07 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 0144 1st day 01:35:05 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 0143 1st day 01:35:03 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 0142 1st day 01:35:03 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC perform a DHCP renew141 1st day 01:34:59 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Entering released state140 1st day 01:34:59 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Unicasting a release of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.1139 1st day 01:31:17 DHCP NOTICE Dynamic IP(DHCP Client) obtained an IP successfully138 1st day 01:31:17 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC:GET ip:192.168.1.2 mask:255.255.255.0 gateway:192.168.1.1 dns1:192.168.1.1 dns2:0.0.0.0 static route:0137 1st day 01:31:17 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Recv ACK from server 192.168.1.1 with ip 192.168.1.2 lease time 259200136 1st day 01:31:15 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send REQUEST to server 192.168.1.1 with request ip 192.168.1.2135 1st day 01:31:15 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Recv OFFER from server 192.168.1.1 with ip 192.168.1.2134 1st day 01:31:14 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send DISCOVER with request ip 192.168.1.2 and unicast flag 0133 1st day 01:31:14 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC perform a DHCP renew132 1st day 01:31:10 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Entering released state131 1st day 01:31:10 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Unicasting a release of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.1130 1st day 01:27:27 DHCP NOTICE Dynamic IP(DHCP Client) obtained an IP successfully129 1st day 01:27:27 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC:GET ip:192.168.1.2 mask:255.255.255.0 gateway:192.168.1.1 dns1:192.168.1.1 dns2:0.0.0.0 static route:0128 1st day 01:27:27 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Recv ACK from server 192.168.1.1 with ip 192.168.1.2 lease time 259200127 1st day 01:27:26 DHCP NOTICE DHCPC Send REQUEST to server 192.168.1.1 with request ip 192.168.1.2

    Uhh, please use CODE tags to disable auto-formatting of code snippets (click on "Go Advanced" to find this in menus). Can't read this post.

    The DHCP is not spam, it's a normal protocol. If you want to save bandwidth, consider use of static IPs.
    Also always use static IPs for tests even if you plan to use DHCP later).

    So you are using this setup for your TL-WA7210:

    WAN is wireless interface in client (station) mode connecting to an AP (WISP).

    LAN is wireless and wired interface bridged, wireless being used in AP (master) mode.

    Make sure the LAN uses another IP range then what's used on the WAN side. This are two separate networks, each with an own IP range.

    For correct settings in this mode, see chapter 5 of the User's Guide available from here (look for "TL-WA7210N_V2_UG", direct links to the UG are forbidden by TP-Link): http://www.tp-link.com/us/download/TL-WA7210N.html

    That is the problem in tp-link wa7210n? Or is the router (wisp) the problem where I get the signal? I'm confused too much

    What is it what did confuse you?

    With AP Client Router mode you have to networks: the WAN (wireless adapter of TL-WA7210 in client mode and also in AP mode) and the LAN (the port of the WA7210 on the PoE adapter). The WAN of the WA7210 is connected to the WISP station (your remote AP). The WA7210 works simultaneously as a client, an AP and a router.

    Setup is straightforward in this operation mode. First connect to the remote AP (called WISP from now on). Do a survey, select the SSID, enter the WPA2 key and wait until the WA7210 connects. Meanwhile, enjoy the LED disco lights on the back of the WA7210.

    While you're at it, disable local WiFi access, it is neither needed nor useful if you use a TL-ANT2424B, which has a very small beam width of 10 (H) / 14 (E), not suitable to wirelessly connect local client devices.

    This are the wireless settings:

    Check for the IP assigned by the WISP AP to your WA7210, it's assigned dynamically if you use the default settings. Let's see if we can connect:

    Yes, we can. Ups, sorry, wrong slogan, I meant: Yes, it works.


    Check for signal strength of the link - here it's the built-in antenna and a consumer AP on the remote side (I'm too lazy to setup a TL-ANT2424B on Sunday):

    Now set an IP for the WA7210 LAN. Default should be o.k. if the WISP uses another IP range:

    Next, configure DHCP or use default settings if they fit for you. Address Lease Time determines the interval you should expect "DHCP SPAM".

    DHCP is somewhat verbose, let's see wether it works:

    Perform a speed test to check for the link quality:

    Rated A+, no wonder from one room to another one nearby, despite two walls in between.

    No connection drops, link is up for an hour now and I'm posting this while still being connected through the wireless link.

    Now the network topology of AP Client Router mode should be clear.
    You only need to ensure that you have equally powered antennas on both sides of the link to avoid connection drops.

    Also, for TL-ANT2424B ensure they are exactly aligned (this can be the most challenging part of such a setup).

    Thank you so much for your help!Look for this reason I want to get the tl-ant2424b because it has a high gain (24dbi): 3. I think the problem is because I'm getting a bad signal from the remote Ap (the distance is about 50m but it has obstacles:/ ) so I'm going to risk buying an ant-ant2424b maybe solving this problem.Sometimes it was very stable in running the wa7210n, I was playing online games without disconnecting. wireless connections it's sucks :3

    What obstacles, which material?

    For directional links you need free line of sight to achieve best results. I don't want to keep you back from playing with a TL-ANT2424B, but this is not the right antenna for a distance of just 50m. It's an antenna for long-range links in the kilometer range.

    Did you take into account that it could be increased use of 2.4 GHz equipment by your neighbors what causes a bad signal in recent times?

    Better get two CPE510 for 50m if the TL-W7210 doesn't perform well anymore. The CPE510 uses 5 GHz in the outdoor band, which is completely separated by indoor devices using 5 GHz. But as noted above: the devices need to have a free line of sight.

    The signal passes through thick walls and trees because the remote AP is inside the building inside a metal box. i know tl-ant2424b is for long distances but believe me i want to try to see what results i have because i have now completely lost the signal of remote AP. I have thought of it for two cpe510 but I need it a little for a few months now in winter because I will move to Germany in the beginning of summer
