MK83 Backhaul ?

Hello All,

 

New to Netgear and just got the MK83 mesh system.  I struggle with wifi setups so please excuse the dumb question.  I'm curious about the backhaul feature. 

 

I read the Owners Manual and just don't see anything that explains this so that I can understand....no doubt written by someone with an EE degree.....

 

So I see all kinds of references to using ethernet for the backhaul.  I need to place a satellite in a location where I don't have an ethernet connection. 

 

This system has 3 wifi channels....is one of those for the backhaul feature (if you don't have ethernet nearby)?

 

See....told you it was a dumb question!  Haha....

Yes, the MK83 systems supports both wired and wireless backhaul. 

So you can do either/or/both

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Thanks for the response.....I figured that was the case but, not being tech savvy, I thought I'd ask to learn....
