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°-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.

Product and Warranty Information

The device measures 3-1/5 by 10-2/5 by 4-7/10 inches (H x W x D).

The Wireless Outdoor CPE is backed by a two-year warranty.

We have an observatory located around 600 feet from our main house across two hills and through some trees. The observatory has power but no internet. Our house is two story, and on the second level has a clear line of sight to the remote building.

I purchased two of these TP-Link TL-WA5210G High Power Wireless Outdoor CPE in order to create a point to point wireless network to be accessed from this remote location. After setting up the first one just outside of a window on the first floor pointing toward the building(but no line of sight), I was surprised to be able to see the Wifi network(100% strength) both infront of and inside the building. Then to just test it I went further away to around 1200 feet and the signal went down to about 60% strength.

When I tried to access to the network however, both iPhone and laptop could see the network yet unable to connect to it. I went back to the TP Link settings page(via Chrome browser and downloaded the most recent firmware update. That also did not fix the issue. I added WPA2 security and set those settings to automatic and that allowed me to connect to it. I have read various reviews claiming issues with the quick setup, and adding security was the solution for me.

I changed locations and moved it upstairs away from my router and actually used a Netgear 85Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit - XETB1001 to connect it to the internet.

Ok so check it out. I just finished setting this up today. I live in the middle of Manhattan in New York City and I installed this on my roof terrace, probably one of the most saturated wifi environments around, which is why I went with 5ghz...I strongly recommend for urban settings where competing wifi networks are problematic.

The unit works GREAT. I have no major complaints, but there's some stuff you need to know:

1. As far as outdoor access points go...This is pretty ghetto. I say that sort of tongue in cheek...look, this device is VERY inexpensive...don't look for fancy hardware here.
2. The "mounting hardware" is two plastic zip ties. No joke.
3. The POE is not if you have a POE switch, it's not going to power this me, I tried. The unit comes with a little POE injector, which is fine I guess. Of course, the unit is supplied with exactly one Ethernet make sure you buy another if you don't have any lying around because you absolutely require two due to the poe injector.
4. The unit is really designed to be mounted on a pole. Not a wall. A I hope you have a pole handy. I happened to have a 2" diameter dowel lying around, so I mounted the dowel to the wall and then strapped the access point to the dowel. Voila.

Once you get past the issues above and you accept that you're buying probably the cheapest outdoor access point our there, you'll be thrilled with this. Honestly, it works GREAT. It actually performs better than my far more expensive indoor access points. I see reviews where people say the device is difficult to set up. That's nonsense. It's just like any other modern SOHO network device...web based configuration.

So just be mindful of the issues I raise above...

It is important to note the following, which was not stated, or was not clear, on's sales page for this device:

1) It is *ONLY* powered by Power Over Ethernet: there is a "power injector" device that the AC power adapter plugs in to, and then the power is delivered from the "power injector" to the CPE device via Ethernet cable.

2) One can *ONLY* configure the device with an Ethernet cable connected to one's computer, at least initially.

3) The antenna is highly biased, with the wave form being not quite bi-directional but not omni-directional. That is, it is better as a point-to-point device out of the box, and thus not completely well suited for use as an Access Point ("repeater") except for wireless devices that are "in front of" the antenna.

As it is, I have not been able to test the device because I do not have an Ethernet cable, and thus I cannot configure the device. I will update this review once I get an Ethernet cable. I thought the above points are necessary to mention here so that people know what they are getting.

-- UPDATE #1 --

I have acquired two Ethernet cables, as that two are required to configure the device: one for power (POE) and another for the "LAN" (personal computer) interface.

The device is mounted on a steel pole outside, and pointing towards the router that is 480 feet away and behind a two-pane storm window. Signal strength averages 36dB in good weather (low humidity, clear sky).

The device has many configurations, and the English manual is some times confusing due to odd word usage: but anyone reading it will eventually understand.
