About backhaul fronthaul



I googled how to config devices connect to rbk50 with speed 1733Mbps, backhaul router & satellite with speed 866Mbps and I tried to these commands:

config set wla_2nd_operation_mode=9
config set wla_2nd_operation_mode=1
config set wla_2nd_ssid=testorbi
config set wla_2nd_endis_ssid_broadcast=1
config set wla_2nd_endis_ssid_broadcast=1
config set wla_2nd_auth=2
config set wla_2nd_rts=2347
config set wla_2nd_rts=2347
config set endis_wla_2nd_wmm=1
config set wla_2nd_tpscale=100
config set wla_2nd_rps=1
config set i_wla_2nd_br=br0
config set wla_2nd_doth=1
config commit


After resetting router, I see the second ssid name: testorbi. My wireless card is intel 9260, distance router & laptop is 50 cm.

Speed reaches 866Mbps, I tried to bring laptop far from router, speed reaches 866Mbps too.

Then, I checked router & satellite Connection Type: 2.4GHz, backhaul status: POOR.

Other devices can not connect to satellite if far from satellite ~50 meters.


So, any solutions for this case?

Re: About backhaul fronthaul

You can't swap the fronthaul/backhaul. 

What I mean is the backhaul (1733mbps) can't be swapped with the front haul for devices to connect to. The firmware reserves this only for router---satellite connection. 

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