    TP-link CPE 210/510 - use both wireless and RJ45

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I have a TP-link CPE210 set up as an Access point. It is connected to my regular router and is used to beam network/internet access to the other end of my property. At the other end, I have another CPE210 where I want to use both wireless access as well as connecting a switch to the LAN port.

    Can I use repeater mode on my other CPE210 to accomplish this?

    Best regards,
    Dan Berglund

    Yes, you can use repeater or client mode on the second CPE210. But the antenna of the CPE210 is directional, so the local wireless coverage is limited. At the back of CPE210 there will be little or no wireless signal.
    If you want to get a better wifi range on the other end, it's suggested to have a home router/access point connected to the CPE210 with an Ethernet cable, then you can connect a switch to the home router/access point.

    A question that comes into my mind when I read your answer is how to point the repeater node when used between a CPE210 access point and a CPE210 client. How can it work well as a repeater if the antenna is one way directional?

    i think it is better to setup the other end CPE210 in client mode then connect its lan port to a switch.Through that switch, we can connect a wireless access point to it and this access point will provide wifi signal.
