Our outdoor 1510 APs are currently a bit too far apart in some cases. Although I am currently planning fill-in nodes, I want to get something working on these nodes that are too far to mesh on 5.8.
I have enabled secondary backhaul on the system, and was expecting performance similar to what I am used to on other mesh systems that mesh on 2.4. However I saw no improvement at all. I can't even find any statistics on the usage (if any) of 2.4. At the moment, I am pretty disappointed.
It is almost like the feature doesn't work. I'm on 18.104.22.168 and am just a bit reluctant to switch to the mesh-only firmware until I hear some reports from actual users.
Does this feature even work? Is there anything else I must do besides turn on the feature from the CLI?
This feature works well in my setup. Can you post the configuration from the mesh AP so that we can troubleshoot the issue?
You can also try using the mesh only firmware and check if it works.
