Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.6.0

I have a customer using M5 and M7 nodes. They are in need of a longer distance Wi-Fi connection. Can I add a CPE510, configured in Repeater "Range Extender" mode,  to add a long distance Wi-Fi Lobe to the Mesh.  Or can I use Bridge mode to connect to another M5 in the distance, say 300M? Or will any use of the CPE devices totally mess with the Deco Mesh?

Hi, it is more suggested that you could set up an AP-Client bridge via CPE, like:

Deco---<wired>--CPE in Access point mode~~~~300M~~~~~~~CPE in client mode---<wired>---other devices.

@TP-Link 

Thanks. 

That is the config that I ended up using, just wanted to confirm that was the best or only option. 

When I tried adding the CPE as a Range Extender, the Deco Mesh began to become unstable.
