Can CPE 210 be connected to an EAP 110 directly via the ethernet ports.   

 

Application is from one building with a CPE 210 in AP Router mode  broadcasting to another CPE 210 in client mode with direct connectivity to EAP 110 .   This would allow me to broadcast from a Cable modem at far end  and extend services with direct line of site to the other CPE 210 about 600 feet away ..connecting this CPE to an EAP 110 would allow the signal to travel wirelessly to my home 200 feet away ......

@Danicor, yes you can do that. Diagrams below show cabling for CPE510 and EAP110-Outdoor, but the cabling scheme is identical for CPE210 and EAP110, too.

 

 

Or, if your CPE still has a second Ethernet port (but check power budget for PoE-passthrough first!):

@R1D2     You have provided me with great information and its very much appreciated!

 

With regards to the EAP 110 would a person be better off to connect an EAP 225 using the 5 gig band to avoid interferance with the 2.4 gig of the CPE 210?

@Danicor, yes, an EAP225 would be better with a CPE210.

 

But probably a CPE510 would also perform better over a distance of 600ft compared to a CPE210 (depends on how many foreign APs are around) and even then I would use an EAP225 for a CPE/EAP combo nowadays.

Thanks agaain my friend!.... I ordered CPE 210's as I thought I might have some minor obstructions but since decided to avoid using 3 point connectivity and not deal with leaves etc. In my area I'm in rual enironment with the sea on one side and houses typically 1000 feet apart. Could a person invoke the TDMA function on the 210's to avoide potential interferance?.... or am I misunderstanding the propratoriy technology Pharos Maxstream? Hard to belive that 15 years agao I used to design networks .... tech has changed alot

@Danicor, a TDMA like MAXtream is useful for PtMP links, not so much for PtP links:

 

 

Your decision to order CPE210 was correct, it performs better then a CPE510 if leaves are in the way and with houses apart this far I assume there will be no issues at all with interferences.

@R1D2 

 

HI there again ...we chatted in the past re connecting a CPE 210 to an EAP 225 - outdoor  back to back 

 

My configuration is at buliding at  LOCATION A  CPE 210 is configured as AP  with the suggested program and IPs along with SSID as Compass.... this unit will be plugged into a switch which in turn is connected through a router and ISP provider.    

 

At LOCATION B ( my remote location )   CPE  210 is configured in Client mode with the suggested program and IP along with same SSID as Compass .... I want to plug the EAP outdoor directly into the CPE 210, however I'm not clear on how the unit should be programed .  I believe it should be on the same IP's and subnet mask as well as have the same SSID of Compass.  is there anything else I should consider or take into account?    LOCATION B application is for a TV, and couple of computers 

 

Location A is being used to provide services to AIR BnB clients all wirleless on a different SSID with existing gear on site.

Hi @Danicor,

 

I would recommend to use an own SSID with own WiFi key for the directional link between the CPEs. Once set up, you can even disable broadcasting of the SSID.

 

As for the EAP at location B you can use the same SSID as for location A (»Compass«).

 

The IPs of all devices should be a static (fixed) IP from your existing network in order to be able to reach allweb UIs of the CPEs and the EAP. They need not necessarily be the same as the IPs which clients are using to connect through your network to the Internet. But if the devices are part of the same (public?) WiFi network, make sure to secure their web UIs by a good password.
