    But don't worry, just perform an update to the latest firmware (actually 1.3.2) and TEST_MODE is here again.

    Flash OpenWrt on 510, get the .Bin from here http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_c...r71xx/generic/ you will see it reads 23 never readed 27 on third party firmware
    I dont recommend using OpenWrt on Pharos line, its buggy, if you like flaws and are interested, flash a Snapshot from Trunk, (there is no web interface, LuCi) you will have to download via pkts.and all before LuCi will have to be done via CLI, use only upper channels, lower ones are buggy.
    My recommendation, stay in Stock, Pharos Control Utility has a lot of features, third party firmware does not have a utility for administration of Pharos line.

    Thank you for the great informations.
    Yes, I am able to use recovery tool and flash OpenWrt, but I agree with your advice, better stay in stock. Anyway, I don’t need to do that because I fully trust you when you say that CPE510 is built for 23dbm output power. First I hoped that the power was limited by firmware; but thanks to your replies we can be sure that the device was born for 23dbm. So, I was wrong, it is not a matter of firmware. But that made me more sad about tplink: They sell a device with a false tech spec. maybe an error, maybe intentionally…but in any way, it's not fair. Am I wrong about that?




    Thaks again for the precious help. And of course, good 2016 to all!

    It will all depend on your philosophical perspective ... "Is the glass half empty or half full"
    I have always said.
    if you did not have a Tp-Link device in your early stage in your network, you did not have childhood.
    This are the 3 reasons why I bought CPE510
