Mesh Bridge Group Name

Answered Question
Aug 20th, 2010

I have a mix of eight 1522's and 1524SB's deployed outdoors across an apartment complex.  Of the eight, three are RAP's wired back into the network.  Is there any advantage to having them in a single Bridge Group Name at all? Do they play better with each other while in a single BGN?  There are no other mesh networks in the area...

On code 6.0.196 currently.

Thanks,

Adam

I have this problem too.

BGN is so you can get a logical breakout.  For example if RAP1 points North, RAP2 points East and RAP3 Points West,  you could use a different

BGN for each sector.  This allows you to kind of push the MAP in the direction you want it to take to get to the RAP.  It should also lessen the amount of neighbors that are viable as a path back, so this should also help to lower covergance time when you bring the MESH up.
