Ethernet backhaul in AP mode


Ethernet backhaul in AP mode

I have one RBR50 in AP mode, wired to a Cisco RV235 router.


One RBS50 satellite via wireless backhaul.


I just obtained a second RBS50 that can be connected via ethernet.  The support page shows the satellites being connected via a LAN port, which makes sense since normally the RBR50 will be connected to a modem or internet source.


Do I need to connect my RBS50 through a second ethernet connection from the RBR50 to the router, or is the WAN connection on the RBR50 to the router going to find the RBS50 connected to the same router?

Re: Ethernet backhaul in AP mode

You can connect the RBS50 to either the RBR50s second LAN port or to the lan port of your first satellite.
