Backhaul Speed Check

Backhaul Speed Check

Hello Everyone. 

 

I am new to netgear communitty since I have just bought a Orbi 6 AX4200 (RBK752).

Setting up the mesh system was easy and everything was ready in a few minutes.

The connection between the sattelite and the router is showing GOOD on the status.

Netgear claims that the backhaul speed is 2400mbps, but I don't know where to check it. When I access the configuration page through the web browser and check the port statistics I have this:

 

Port:                                          Status:

2.4G WLAN b/g/n/ax                 573.5M

5G WLAN a/n/ac/x                   1201M

WLAN Backhaul                       1201M

 

Does this sounds about right?

I am not an expert but with this information I am guessing my backhaul speed is only 1201mbps.

 

Can someone help me to clarify this issue?

 

Best Regards.

 

Thiago

Re: Backhaul Speed Check

If you look at the specs, there is an + next to it meaning up to or read exceptions, etc. So the backhaul speed connection depends on how far apart the satellite is from the router.

Re: Backhaul Speed Check

I see. So, to reach 2400mbps the sattelite has to be what? 1 foot away from the router?

Is there a way to check this backhaul speed?
