Hi @Sugar_Rush,

 

Yes, absolutely.  You can connect the EAP-225-Outdoor directly to your Ethernet network.  In fact this is the preferred solution for maximum performance.  Note that this AP, like the rest of the 225/245 line are PoE.  So you will either need to use the included PoE injector or use a compatible PoE ethernet switch.

 

Do you have other TP-link equipment?  e.g. 225V3 or 245V3?  OC-200 or SDN/Omada server software?

@JSchnee21 

I have CPE520 products. 

(Lower than 25dbm. Our country didn't allow over 25dbm. CPE220 support 2.4Ghz but that is over 25dbm) 

CPE520 support only 5Ghz.

I use CPE520 Client mode like this. 

 

Any Wireless Internet)))   (((CPE520(client mode) -> PoE -> router -> computer

 

EAP225-Outdoor support 2.4Ghz. So I want to use EAP225-Outdoor like this

 

Any Wireless Internet)))   (((EAP225 -> PoE -> router -> computer

 

So is that possible to set a system like this? 

Give me some hint! 

Many Thanks^^

Dear @Sugar_Rush,

Any Wireless Internet)))   (((EAP225 -> PoE -> router -> computer 

So is that possible to set a system like this? 

 

I'm afraid that EAP225-Outdoor cannot work like that. EAP225-Outdoor is just an access point, which is required to be hardwired to the Internet via cable.

 

I have CPE520 products. (Lower than 25dbm. Our country didn't allow over 25dbm. CPE220 support 2.4Ghz but that is over 25dbm) 

CPE520 support only 5Ghz. I use CPE520 Client mode like this.  

Any Wireless Internet)))   (((CPE520(client mode) -> PoE -> router -> computer 

 

For your concern, may I ask why you need a 2.4GHz device? Is the Wireless Internet providing 2.4GHz or 5GHz, or both? Do you have any issues with the 5GHz CPE520?

 

Please kindly note that the CPE520 in Client mode doesn't broadcast 5GHz WiFi, but only pick up the WiFi signal from the Wireless Internet and then feed the Internet to the behind router (or AP) via Ethernet cable. If your demand is to receive 2.4GHz WiFi on the computer, you could add the EAP225-Outdoor to make it, so the setup is like this:

 

Wireless Internet )))5GHz((( CPE520(client mode) ----- router ----- EAP225-Outdoor )))2.4G&5G((( computer or other wireless clients

 

Note: in the setup above, the router can be removed according to your actual requirements as it's not a must.

Best Regards!
