    tp-link tl-wa5210g access point configuration

    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/d...del=TL-WA5210G
    ip - 192.168.1.254

    3. tp-link tl-ant2415d - outdoor antenna
    http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/d...el=TL-ANT2415D

    4. tp-link 3 Meters Antenna Extension Cable TL-ANT24EC3S
    http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/d...l=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...

    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
