    DC on test mode CPE210

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Does any one can help me
    1. i have problem with CPE210 in AP mode,when i a use Test_mode
    all client will be disconect all
    is that any other option to make this mode powerfull..?
    2. How many clinet maximum that can handled by CPE210..?
    I have an issue when i conect more then 10 User, CPE 210 will be hang...and no respons


    thx

    Test mode is for testing only. It uses some frequencies outside the ones assigned to WiFi radio links. Only CPE210 devices also supporting those frequencies can connect to an AP in Test mode, but expect massive interferences depending on the country you live in.

    As for the maximum number of clients, it depends on their usage patterns. Usually the bandwidth will drop significantly if there are too many users, maybe that's what you observe as a CPE that "hangs". If your clients are CPEs, then always turn on MAXtream mode if you have two or more clients to avoid bandwidth degradation due to the CSMA/CA carrier sensing method.

    Thank you for the answer
    But when i use test Mode,i only use normal channel ( 1-10 chanel ) but still, all client will be DC
    is there any some bug according to test mode condition..?
    other competitor brand working fine with their complement test..i hope tp-link will do the same way..

    Upgrade firmware to version 170301 http://static.tp-link.com/TP_PharOS_2.0.0_170301.zip , stable China region, adjust transmission power to 20 dBm or higher, select automatic channel, 20 MHz channel width, automatic distance, enable QOS.

    Info tp linl cpe 210

    Hi I have a small problem with a Tp-Link cpe 210 antenna, set it as an access point to transmit wifi to a nearby home, it works perfectly but once the antenna is working by connecting to the signal it generates and that It works perfectly I can no longer then monitor it using 192.168.0.254 why ?? What should I change to monitor it again ?? A problem I can not solve and explain, if you can suggest something, it will surely be a whim, Thank you Marco.

    Test mode will give you 4,000mW TX power instead of the allowed 100mW. Depending on distance to the clients they could disconnect just b/c of signal distortion.

    In professional WiFi setups one would try to lower the TX power rather than increasing it, b/c of such interferences. This rule doesn't necessarily apply to directional links (i.e. two or more CPEs talking to each other), but for sure it applies to a PtMP setup of one CPE feeding several standard devices.

    Maybe a picture explains this better:

    Set a static (fixed) IP from your subnet in the CPE.

    By default it is configured to use DHCP, which means it get's a dynamic IP - most certainly different from the default IP 192.168.0.254 - and if your subnet isn't 192.168.0.0 at all, the CPE can't be reached from within the subnet anyway.

    I just know than test mode will give power 4000mW...but the specification only max 27 dbm mean only max 500mW,anyway i just set power 20 dbm..but still all client will be DC

    27dBm TX power + 9dBi antenna gain equals 36dBm total emissive power, which is 4W (actually 3.98W), so the specs are correct.

    Setting 20dBm TX power gives you 29dBm, which is ~800mW total power.

    What is the distance your client devices are located away from the main CPE? What type of clients? CPEs or other gear? Are they on fixed positions or are they moving around? If the latter, are they moving around in the area supported by the directional antennas (beam width 60)?
