Model: CPE710  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 2.2.1 20201208

My PharOS version does not have "Bridge" as a mode.  I understand I can use "Access Point" and "Client" to use a pair of CPE710's for 1 subnet.  I am replacing an older wireless bridge with my set of CPE710's.  I have multiple subnets being passed through the bridge between two different buildings.  How do I configure my CPE710's so I can use them for multiple different subnets, as if they are a bridge for all packets?

 

Is there a version of the PharOS firmware that still supports "Bridge" mode like in your older units?  If not, do you plan to add that functionality back in?

 

Thanks!

Bill VH

In fact the CPE710 equipped with the directional antenna, with an antenna width of less than 10°, and is not suitable for bridge extension wireless alone.
And two CPEs do the point-to-point setup topology (AP+Client) can pass through VLANs even though multiple subnets.
Just need to note that the CPE does not set Multiple-SSID.

 

Best Regards!
