WiFi 5 as backhaul radio


  • I’d love to be able to use the WiFi 5GHz radio as the dedicated wireless backhaul. That way this could truly be a true band router instead of a dual band router with a compatibility radio.

    I’ve tested what it would be like separating the alien’s back haul from client facing radio and it doubled the mesh point speed. No more halving of mesh point speed with every jump.

    I’m not sure why this isn’t already a feature since they let you select 2.4GHz vs 5GHz band already, just not the WiFi 5 one.
