Hi, am trying to set up an outdoor CPE210 to connect to available free wi-Fi and have it set up on the roof in direct line of sight to the main one on the Park's office roof.
(There is a repeater near us, but it is the furtherest one of 3 from the office and the signal is too weak to run Netflix, hence the new setup required)
I have tried setting it up as "Access Point" and "Client" but when I connected the EAP110 to it, via the cable in the LAN port, it doesn't light up.
I have also tried "Repeater" but I got the "failed" message.
I have reset the CPE210 in between each setup. Each time I try to set it up i am using the parks wifi on my laptop and I have had extreme trouble even getting the 192.168.0.254
to open so I can log in.
This is what I have done each time: Disconnected the wireless card and connected the laptop via ethernet cable to the LAN port on the POE adapter which is plugged into power and has the CPE connected to the POE outlet in the adapter via CAT5 cable.
Each time i complete a setup i remove the cable from the laptop and connect it to the EAP110 but it doesnt light up.
I'm going around in circles and would really appreciate some detailed help please. Like, as in blonde's language.
Many thanks in advance
