I guess you wanna use the first CPE1 as the WISP Mode, and connect another CPE2 to this CPE1 with the cable, and then wanna know how many CPEs can be connected to this CPE2?

 

As I known, if you enable the Maxtream function, then the maximum is 50 CPEs.

If you keep the Maxtream function disabled, then the maximum is 20 CPEs.

 

But CPE510's wireless signal is mainly focused on its front panel and has a very limited 60 degree angle, so you'd better set those CPEs in this angle.

I mean  wirelessly, anyway i get it. 

60°  only? Do you recommend any other device that can cover 120°?

 

 

Thanks for your response and i appreciate it.

As far as I know, tplink's CPE products all seem to have directional antennas at 60 angles, while their EAP outdoor products have omnidirectional antennas, but they are not as suitable for long distance data transmission as CPE, so it still depends on your own practical needs.
