    Cool Using WA5210G as Client with CPE210 AP

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I replaced the WA5210G on my house antennae with a CPE210. I also added a second CPE210 on a new outbuilding. That is working fine to provide internet to that building. However, I am having difficulty getting my older WA5210G's to work with the new AP on the house. The WA5210G's on other buildings are connected to IP cameras. They are both 2.4Ghz and I set the channel width to 20 on the CPE210 to match the WA5210G. Is there any other settings I need to change on either AP to get them to work together. I can connect directly to the WA5210G by LAN and see the CPE210, but from my house computer, I cannot see the WA5210G or the IP camera that is connected to it. If neccesary I will replace all the older AP's, but if I can get them to work as is it will save me some $. TIA for any ideas.

    Can you describe how were two CPEs and one WA5210G connected to each other?
    I mean the network map?

    Hi,


    1. WA5210G only supports IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b while CPE210 supports IEEE 802.11b/g/n (with Pharos MAXtream disabled). So, choose 802.11b/g as the Mode on CPE210. And Both choose WPA-PSK/ WPA2-PSK as the security.

    2. CPE210 can support up to 5KM while 5210G only supports up to 2KM. Make sure the distance between CPE210 and 5210 is less 2km/

    3. Make sure the CPE210 and WA5210G are assigned the different IP addresses within the same subnet of your main router.
