  1. Hello, and many thanks for this post.
    I have the CPE210 and would like to set this up as repeater mode.

    One thing I am not sure of is if I need to set the network IP settings. Once you perform the setup as per your post, the gateway and dns settings remain empty. Do you need to set these up for repeater mode?

    Also would you suggest giving the device a fixed IP?


    1. Hi nebille,

      First of all i would like to clear you, Repeater mode device work in bridge so its get all the IP, DNS settings from main wifi router its connected to. so there is no DNS and static IP required it. just leave it with its default ip address which use in LAN to configure it.

  2. Thanks for the article. It seems like it fits my situation but I am not sure. When I went to TP-link they said that I would probably need two cpe210 WLAN APs. Not sure that was entirely correct.What I want to do is provide wifi coverage for my 20\’ X 30\’ shop so that I can install a Blink camera to detect motion when I am not around. Nothing else down there will need wifi. The shop is a little less than 200\’ from my router. The signal is very weak and spotty at the shop. Do I need two WLAN APs with one setup in client mode, or will one do the job in repeater mode?

    1. If you already using WiFi router than you can directly connct your TPLink CPE210 in repeater mode and connect your Blink camera to repeater SSID.
