A Loco M5 is just a simple AP or Bridge. If you know how to setup a camera already its just a matter of how you are utilizing the TP Loco for. With that said what are you trying to do with it?

It is going to be very similar if not exactly the same as getting two nano stations talking to each other. Each device will need its own IP address.

They will need to be in WDS mode. First device will have internet access so it will be set up in access-point mode. Under Wireless settings

You will need to pick an encryption type and set a password for the wifi.

 

The next device will give internet access so it is configured as a "station" (under wifi settings)

Lock device to AP 

Enter the password you created.

I guess the only part im not clear on is where the camera gets its ip address from. The station? Or does the camera need to have a static ip set within the range for the station. Or the station is acting as a bridge and the camera ip is static.

Everything should be set static. The camera especially. If not when the camera reboots it will get a new IP and you will lose video as the NVR wont know the new IP

Ok thanks. Working on getting it all onfigured before i take it to the site.

One question i have though is the fact that just 1 loco and the rocket seem to be overloading my 54g router here at home. The TX/RX is around 270mbs. Possible to turn that down? I have 8 nanostations that will be connected to the Rocket M5.

Make sure the "station" side is NOT connected to the same network as the Rocket via Ethernet.  If it is, when your station associates to the AP you will create a loop and the network freezes.  Connect the station to a laptop for configuration. One additional thought – the rocket tx power should be adjusted to the distance you are shooting.  If its only a couple hundred feet turn it down.  You don't want anything connecting stronger than around -48ish.
