1. A method comprising:
receiving, by a repeater device, first reference signals from a first wireless station;
forwarding, by the repeater device, the first reference signals to a fixed wireless access (FWA) device;
transmitting, by the repeater device at a first gain value, a first uplink signal received from the FWA device to the first wireless station, wherein the first gain value comprises a maximum gain value associated with the repeater device;
receiving, by the repeater device and in response to the first uplink signal, first transmit power control (TPC) command parameters from the FWA device; and
adjusting, by the repeater device and based on the first TPC command parameters, the first gain value to an adjusted gain value, wherein the adjusted gain value is less than the maximum gain value.
