The TP-LINK TL-WA5210G 2.4 GHz High Power Wireless Outdoor CPE is a dedicated Wireless Internet Service Provider Customer-Premises Equipment (WISP CPE) device, providing the functions of a Wireless Access Point (WAP), WISP Client, and a high gain antenna in one weatherproof device designed for outdoor use. The high power design extends transmission range and delivers a more reliable wireless connection.
High Output Power for Extended Range
For users that need to cover a large area and reduce dead spots, the TL-WA5210G features high output power and high RX sensitivity that lets it reach farther than other wireless access points. Just like a high-volume speaker to make your sound (wireless signal) travel further, the device features high power for higher speeds at further range for long distance applications. Signal degradation when traveling long distances is mitigated, just like a high-sensitivity headset, allowing the AP to detect and receive the weakest signals. Combined with the integrated 12 dBi dual-polarized antenna, the TL-WA5210G lets you build up to a 9.3-mile range wireless link.
If you connect an optional higher gain directional antenna to the external RP-SMA connector, the device supports distance control up to 32.6 miles, breaking through distance limitations in normal 802.11g devices and enabling long-distance wireless transmission. An antenna alignment tool is also included, which produces superior wireless performance by enabling the best transmission and reception signals.
The Wireless Access Point supports the IEEE 802.11g and b standards, offering wireless speeds of up to 54 Mbps in 802.11g mode and automatically falling back to 11 Mbps in 802.11b mode.
Weatherproof Design for Outdoor Use
The TL-WA5210G is designed to work in harsh outdoor environment. Built with outdoor weatherproof enclosure and high durable of temperature (-30°C~70°C) hardware inside, the AP could work in some place with extreme bad weather conditions. Besides, the built-in 4000V lightning and 15KV ESD protection design would also help you to prevent storm/lightning surges and ensures reliable operation.
Multiple Operation Modes with One Device
The TL-WA5210G provides three different operation modes: AP client router, AP router, and AP. In AP client router mode, it works as a Wireless Internet Service Provider Customer-Premises Equipment (WISP CPE). In AP router mode, it accesses the Internet via ADSL/cable modem. And in AP mode, it can function as an access point, client, WDS bridge, and repeater.
Strong Security Keeps You Safe
Multiple security measures keep your wireless network safe from prying eyes. The Wireless Access Point can be set to turn off the wireless network name (SSID) broadcast so that only users that know it can access it. The access point itself provides LAN 64/128/152-bit WEP encryption security, WPA/WPA2 and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK authentication, as well as TKIP/AES encryption security.
The TL-WA5210G also features a client isolation function, which protects the security of each individual subscriber from hacker attacks in the same wireless network.
Quick to Set Up, Easy To Manage
TP-LINK made the TL-WA5210G a breeze to set up and easy to manage. Friendly help messages are provided at every step so you can have your access point up and sharing the Internet in no time. For hard-to-wire locations, a bundled power injector and Passive Power over Ethernet (PPoE) provide flexible deployment options.
Users can get operational information from the access point without using professional test software by using the integrated speed test and throughput monitor tools. The access point also supports Ping Watch Dog, which enables the device to reboot itself when it encounters errors, saving you the time from having to do it manually.
