[Beta]Connect Tp-Link CPE210 to Mikrotik
2015-06-30 14:55:06
Region : Argentina

Model : CPE210

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : 1.2.1

ISP :


Hello,

We have been using tp-link cpe's for a long time. Most recently the 7210 and they work good. But now our supplier is selling us the new cpe210.
We have trouble connecting it to our network. Our AP's are mikrotik. The cpe210 connects, but then no data passes. We tried as both client mode or ap client router mode (wisp client).
We use the 7210 in ap client router mode and expected to use it in the same manner. The wireless part in the mikrotik configuration is pretty basic, nothing fancy there and all other kind of cpe connects fine.
What I noticed different is that when cpe210 connects in the mikrotik log i see a message : wants bridge. Which is kinda strange for a wisp client. Maybe that is the problem but I don't see any option to disable it.

Post Mikrotik model.
I don't use 1.21 FW, if something has changed on the Client side about MaxStream make sure is disable, and if there is a similar protocol in Tik make sure is disable, if so, on the past did not affected the SISO line (7210) but as 210 being MIMO it might

I have tried on GrooveA-52HPn which has 802.11n on it with max 150mbit/s (siso). Also for test in the office tried on a 433ah board with atheros 802.11b/g card on it.
Wireless protocol on the mikrotik is plain 802.11, no tdma because I know every brand's tdma is incompatible with other brands. Also I have 15-20 connected clients including tp-link 5210 and 7210.
On the cpe210 if it is on client mode there is no setting for maxtream, I suppose because it follows ap settings.

The devices came with 1.0.0. It was not working with it. That is why I tried to upgrade to the latest version.

@CyberTod he has not answered yet, he is in WISP business, and some days are busy, I had not given you his info. cause he is from Ecuador if you speak Spanish all his info. is here http://www.ryohnosuke.com/foros/index.php?threads/18460/#post-161736 I seen him help a lot of forumers via Teamviewer, the only thing is that he is not Tp-Link at all, he is a expert on Mikrotik.
On the other hand, Tp-link should jump into this one, cause it concerns them.

@CyberTod reading I found a post between Tik & UBNT they solved by enabling WDS, on 210 it's on Client side, have you try enable or disable WDS and what about ISP router is WDS capable
