Model: EAP225-Outdoor  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Can I set up an EAP225-Outdoor to receive anRV Park wifi to feed an indoor private wifi network router?  So far, only my router can 'see' the EAP225's signal, and the EAP cannot log into the RV Park's network.  I cannot get any controller (Android or web-based) app to log into the EAP to do any setup, either.

 

I must be missing something simple, but right now can't see what that might be.

 

I currently have a private [indoor] wireless network [with a few PCs, wireless printers & plotters] that connects to the outside world through DSL, but want  to use the RV Park's [free] wifi, which was upgraded just last week.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

P.S.  This is my home office.

@Rich_G According to my understanding, EAP225-Outdoor requires a wired connection to the network source to expand wifi, which means that EAP225-Outdoor cannot be used as a repeater, so I think EAP225-Outdoor should not be able to meet your needs.

@Yannie I thought these things were bi-directional, and I could set this thing up as an outdoor Access Point with a Cat5 cable feeding my router, like I used to with a [indoor] DLink Range Extender.  It worked, but the wifi signal was too sensitive to the presence of other RVs nearby.  Still using the router to give some network isolation from the RV Park's Wifi network, but I want to ditch the DSL modem.

 

Any other ideas?

@Rich_G Maybe CPE can meet your requirements, I saw a FAQ on their official website, which explains some working modes of CPE.
