Even though I am a long time OpenWRT user, this is my first post in this forum.
Today I was reading an article/advertisment regarding mesh networking with 3 radio devices and the following configuration.
1st radio: 2.4 GHz as AP for clients
2nd radio: 5GHz for mesh ingress
3rd radio: 5GHz for mesh egress
As the article describes, this configuration have minimal throutput losses between hops with losses of 4% on 10 hops in lab environment and 40% on 10 hops in real world setup.
I am familiar with 802.11s and batman-adv, since I have deployed some small scale mesh networks, but I can't seem to understand if this kind of configuration is possible with OpenWRT.
So my questions.
- Is it possible to set two 5GHz radios dedicated for meshing one as sending and the other as receiving? (2 different channels used)
- Is it possible to do this with dual stream radio? 1 stream for only receiving and the other stream for only sending? (single channel used)
P.S. Sorry for my english, it is not my native language.
