    The 210 is 2ghz and is 510 5ghz. Would you know which would be better? Price wise is pretty much the same. We would like WiFi in another building on the farm, 30m from where the bridge will be. Does yours reach far around the farm?

    5ghz has higher throughput I think. I don’t use it to spread around simple point to point as that will reduce performance also

    Actually I see the throughput same on both 510 just has better range but a narrower beam.

    2 Ghz, is less prone to interference from surrounding obstacles , and will travel better if there isnt a clear line of sight.

    5 Ghz may have advantages if there are a number of 2 Ghz signals already in situ. Also 5Ghz is faster transfer (if conditions are in it's favour)

    They are remote so other signals shouldn't be an issue, just thinking when the speed is so slow to start with will the 2ghz kill it too much. But might have more chance reaching that other building on the 2ghz.

    The speed of your broadband has no impact on the transmission link. So if the transmission has the full 300mbps and your broadband is only 10 you should get 10 over the transmission link. Sorry if my earlier post confused.

    If I set two of the cpe510s up as AP and client using line of sight, I can wire the camera into the client on the farm. I haven't figured out how to get WiFi on the farm though. Do I need another device? And do I need a switch so this and the camera both connect into the cpe510?

    the best setup is to consider the cpe510s as replacing a piece of wire between the house and farm and nothing more so if you want wifi at the yard you need a separate access point . You configure the 2 cpe510 as bridge devices. If you want multiple devices at the farm yes you'll need a network hub/switch there also - you could get an access point that had multiple ports.

    are there other cameras than a sricam sp008, they seem to be getting thin on the ground.

    I bought one of these, from the seller above, it was never used, and it appears to be last years model I think, i think the new equivalent is twice as much, if not more, its not installed in shed yet, will get to it at weekend, leave it with me and I will report back, however see photos of my neighbours dustbin at 50ft, thats 20X zoom.

    If your purchasing it needs a 48V Active POE supply, not a Passive POE supply and then you only have to run one cable to it as using POE, both power and data go down the one cable.

    Leave it with me for photos from shed from night time

    Hikvision is supposed to be good stuff in the IP camera world

    To setup some v basic IP work is required
