The network is serving a captive portal for public wifi.
All wifi AP are open (non encripted).
Would encrypting the mesh offer any advantage?
In unecrypted mesh i can still use a secret password right? "option key"
config wifi-iface 'mesh0' option device 'radio5pci' option ifname 'mesh0' option network 'nwi_mesh0' option mode 'mesh' option mesh_fwding '0' option mesh_id '<your advertised mesh "name" goes here>' option encryption '**none**' option key '**your secure pass phrase goes here'**
i was thinking if i encryption the mesh it will just add overhead to the mesh wifi. and would not offer any security advantage because the AP that will serve clients is open.
