Hardware Version: V10
Firmware Version: Not sure

Hi there, 

 

I have a cpe210 set up as a repeater or ap mode to get signal to a shed.

 

The device in the shed I am wanting to connect needs to have a dhcp reserved in the main router

 

The cpe210 in ap mode just kept cutting the internet off the main router. 

 

The cpe210 in repeater mode is not getting a great strength or connection albeit it is picking up the main router signal quiet strong

 

I'm thinking I have the wrong product. I could just use a high gain antenna, or another wifi boosting product with more simplicity

 

Any ideas would be appreciated 

 

Thanks people

 

Also worth mentioning the tp link support hotline was sh#$...

How far from the main router do you specifically need to extend your WiFi?
You can also consider EAP outdoor products if it don't exceed 50 metres.

However, both EAP and CPE broadcast their WiFi when they are in AP mode, so if your CPE drops out frequently when it is acting as an AP, it is still important to troubleshoot the dropout problem.
