Wired Backhaul on MK62

Hi,

 

I purchased MK62 a few months back and have been using it since then.

But wifi signal keeps droping at time to time since both router and satellite are using wireless backhaul.

 

According to netgear, at the time of launch of this product. It was said that MK62 did not support Wired Backhaul at that time, but it will in the future with a firmware update

 

(according to this verge atricle ----->

Does anyone knows if MK62 supports Wired Backhaul now?

Re: Wired Backhaul on MK62

it does. 

What is an Ethernet backhaul connection and how do I set it up on my Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 products?...

Hi,
How can you confirm?
Where can I find the firmware update details.

Re: Wired Backhaul on MK62

How can I confirm? 

1. the article specifically lists those models.

2. I've had others on here using a wired backhaul

3. You can read through the release notes on the firmware if you'd like. I didn't because there's been so many firmware releases. 

4. You can always move the satellite next to the router and connect it with a short cable to test it if you'd like. when you connect it, leave it for at least 5 minutes before checking backhaul status

Re: Wired Backhaul on MK62

Sadly that one I can't tell you.

I know how with the Orbi systems but I've never used the MK systems so I'm not sure how it displays the backhaul in the settings display. 

And there aren't many people on here who help out with the MK systems. 

Maybe @Christian_R or @DarrenM  or @ChristineT   could help with that.
