Bridge Mode and/or Backhaul


  • So far so good.....I love my new Amplifi Alien. One of the best pieces of electronics I've ever gotten. I have another one on the way and have a question:

    I'm going to connect the second one view ethernet and place it at another location in the house.

    1. Should I put the second one in bridge mode or leave as mesh?
    2. Should I enable backhaul with this?

  • @hartwellj said in Bridge Mode and/or Backhaul:

    Leave it as a mesh, this will give your devices the ability to move from point to point with less delay

    Should I enable backhaul with this?

    If you are connecting the second Alien with ethernet, then yes enable Ethernet backhaul. If the place in your home where you need the second Alien does not have an ethernet connection, the wireless backhaul will be using WiFi-6 bringing high speed wireless to that area as well


  • @UI-AmpliFi Ok great.....I wasn't sure if keeping it in Mesh would cause two routers sending out DHCP, but I'm assuming it' knows it's a Mesh and handles that already.

    Thanks....
