I have adjusted my settings and am now receiving a snr of 85dB but the same problem still persists. From my LAN I can ping up to the TP-Link but nothing that's connected to it. Same going out, the end devices can ping TP-Link but nothing past it. The TP-Link itself can ping anything on the internet so I know it's not a networking issue. Something is wrong with the way end devices communicate w/ the TP-Link and vice versa. 

 

The network settings on the CPE have been changed to Dynamic, the CPE receive the correct ip information from any WLAN I connect it too but any end device connected to the TP-Link does not receive an IP.

 

I am fresh out of ideas at this point, this is bizzare. I have contacted TP-Link support but have not received a response in over week.

A SNR of 85 dB?

 

You probably mean that your signal level is -85 dB (which is a pretty bad value). Measure noise level, subtract it from the signal level (for example: -85dB signal level minus -90 dB noise level equals 5 dB SNR). SNR must be 20 or higher for data transmission. Your SNR in last Status screenshot was 13 dB (-76 dB SL – -89 dB NL = 13 dB SNR). It seems to fluctuate between 9 and 13 dB since SL horizontally was reported as -80 dB, so -80 dB SL – -89dB NL = 9 dB SNR. This are real world values:

 

  • 10dB - 15dB SNR = Very low signal (1 bar); mostly associated; mostly slow.
  • 5dB to 10dB SNR = No signal; not associated; no go.

SOLVED!!

 

I was so focused on the networking behind the CPE510 that I completely forgot about WDS.

 

The WDS setting was set to auto, once I disabled this, everything worked as normal and I was able to reach the internet from any end device that was connected to the CPE510

WDS is unrelated to traffic between wired clients and the CPE.

Thank you so much @J_peg this exact same thing was happening to me with the CPE210 connecting to a Netgear  R6700. I worked with support on the phone for 45 minutes before they hung up on me when they ran out of ideas. Disabling WDS worked like a champ.
