Hello,

 

I having a hard time connecting two CPE210 over like 30m line of sight. To make this clear, nothing is blocking it, the signalstrength and quality is perfect, I can even lower the power alot and still have the same linkquality. 

The problem is: after some time like 30minutes, sometimes after a day the 2nd CPE210 that is sitting on the outside-location loses it's IP. The Host-CPE210 that is connected to the LAN still shows a connection to the second, but the second's webinterface can't be reached. And also there is no response on the second CPE's LAN-port (checked with nmap).

My best bet so far: some odd DHCP-lease failure that erases the IP somehow or just a plain hardware-defect. The LAN-cable is okay, checked that with a tester already, PoE working too, of course.

 

Is there a recommended configuration for connecting two CPE210 to a local LAN? Perhaps something that os fool-proof and won't britch with the local DSL-router?

Oh and just another thing: I noticed it is possible to activate the second wifi-antenna to host a second wifi at the outside-location, it won't be a perfect signal but good enough to eg. connect a phone for messaging. Could this be a problem-source, too?

 

Looks like I just need a "this should work regardless of the local LAN"-config to make sure I'm not the error? :)

Did you properly ground the CPEs? If not, the potential increases that it indeed could be a HW defect.

I recommend to set static IPs for the CPEs. If they still lose the IP when set to static IP, can you connect to their fall-back IP (192.168.0.254)?

 

BTW: there is a Pharos-specific sub-forum.

I would suggest you to use AP mode + Client mode.

 

1st AP:

AP mode, static IP 192.168.0.254, Static Channel 6.

 

2nd AP:

Client mode, static 192.168.0.253, enable "lock to AP".

 

Other Tips:

If you are using UN version, that means you can use "Test Mode" for an unofficial channel which is more ideal and less interfered than the official channel 1~11.

 

BTW: this thread should belong to "Pharos Forum" rather than "Business Wi-Fi"
