Hello,

 

I'm looking to set up some Omada equipment between two units and was interested to know if this configuration would work. Both would have EAP-225 Outdoors in mesh mode to connect to each other wirelessly. All solid lines are wired.

 

My main question is would the OC200 be able to manage and monitor the "EAP-225 In2"?

The answer is YES.

@yum 200ft is viable for an ethernet cable.  Presumably there is a physical reason not to to that? E.g. you have to cross a road or similar.

Hi @yum,

 

I'm not convinced you're going to get 200' between two EAP225-Outdoor with the stock antennas.  The MESH network from the Ethernet connected master node (on left) to the wirelessly connected MESH node on the right uses the 5.8GHz band.

 

I know I only get ~50'-100' from my EAP225-Outdoors on 5.8GHz but that's from AP to STA.  AP to AP will be farther.

 

Beyond 100' you may do better with a CPE710

@Fae 

 

Thanks for the confirmation.

 

@CarbonPepper 

 

Correct. I'd run ethernet if I could, but there is property in between I cannot run it across.

 

@JSchnee21

 

Thanks for the heads up. I've looked at the CPE710, but wasn't sure if it would be wiser to stay within the Omada line to stay compatible with the OC200.
