When I started to setup my TP-Link CPE510, in AP mode. Then SSID not showing up on my Smartphones. 
Then I checked out status. 
Then this shows signal strength N/A. 
What does that mean?

Dear @Mohiemen,

The Wireless Signal Quality section is only applicable for the Client, Repeater, Bridge and AP Client Router (WISP Client) Modes.

So it's normal that the signal strength shows N/A when the CPE works in AP mode.

For the issue that the phones/laptops cannot detect the SSID from the CPE510, you may check the points below:

1. Ensure your devices support 5GHz WiFi. Do your phones/laptops detect any other 5GHz WiFi?

2. The CPE510 adopts directional antennas, ensure your phones/laptops are within the wireless coverage.

3. Please ensure your Region is correctly selected, ensure SSID broadcast is enabled, and change different Channels for checking.
