KuWfi CPE120 pair setup

My other pages on these units

Goals

  1. Point to point link between buildings
  2. Extend Wifi coverage in the linked building using the Host KuWfi unit Wifi
  3. Leave Client KuWfi unit WiFi off for now

Relevant observations/notes:

  • Host unit in AP mode simply bridges incoming Lan connection
    • so no issues with duplicate DHCP etc
  • Client unit Wifi is OFF so downstream client unit connections are cable only
    • Remind myself here that 2 physical Lan connections are available at the Client KuWfi unit
      • Client KuWfi unit ‘LAN’port
      • Client KuWfi unit power supply ‘LAN’ port
