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

Hi there

 

   I live very ruraly and thus have just had my Starlink delivered , currently it is only going to be setup via the provided wifi router (have just ordered starklink ethernet adapter) .

 

I need to get Wifi to my barns , static caravan and house and thus was looking at the EAP225-Outdoor Wifi repeaters - can i do this without any further equipment etc ?

Bare minimum design:

 

Starlink box --> Starlink Ethernet Adapter --> OC200 -> POE injector -> EAP225 Outdoor#1   (( wifi mesh ))  EAP225-outdoor APs

 

This comes with the caveat that the OC200 ports are only good for about ~90Mbps of throughput and the EAP225 and your Starlink can go faster (though whether you need faster in the barn is up to you).  If you want to break the 100Mbps barrier, you'll need to add a Gigabit capable switch between the Ethernet Adapter and the OC200 and also plug EAP225#1 directly into the switch.  For bonus points you can use a POE switch and that will power the OC200 and the AP (removes a 5V wall wort and the POE injector) such as the SG105P...and for even more bonus points you spend a bit more and get an SG2008P which can be managed by the OC200 as well.

I did exactly what you are planning to do.  You will need an Omada controller to enable the wireless links (mesh) between remote APs and the one connected to your Starlink box.  You do not need Omada routers or switches for basic networking needs.  I would recommend the OC200 hardware controller for your setup, and it's going to be easier more stable than running your own software controller on an old laptop or whatever.

Thanks for that - so what would the physical connections be for this to work
