Hi,

Hope someone can help me with this.
Is it possible to add an extra antenna to the cpe510 so that I can also get coverage inside the house?
If it is possible to connect an additional antenna,use lan1 and/or
connect an additional wifi router to get coverage indoors should work well.

Qustion is following: Is it possible to connect a antenne into Lan1 (extend wifi coverage), alternativley connect wifi router into lan1?

Possibly what other possibilities I have to get decoded indoors based on CPE510

You could add any wireless access point (AP) with omnidirectional antennas to the LAN1 of a CPE to extend the WiFi coverage of the same subnet, sure.

Hi R1D2,

Thanks. Excellent, but when I googled on net after an extra antenna, they all have different Interface (RP-SMA Male). Assum it`s possible t get an adapter to RJ45? Maybe Imust get a different type o antenna.
Thnaks again.

No, there are no antennas possible, just APs (often, people call those APs and even the CPEs just "antennas"). For example, you can add a TL-WA901ND, a fine AP for indoor use, by connecting it to the LAN1 Ethernet port. See http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-12_TL-WA901ND.html

If you insist on mounting an antenna to the CPE directly, the device could be modded like this: https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-cpe210#omni-directional_antenna_mod
But there is no way to adapt a pure antenna by the means of just plug it into a CPE.
