    Can this be use in PTMP setup?

    Hi! Is there a trick to set m2 as a access point and m5 as station? I somehow can not get m5 to find m2 to get a 'lock on'. Thanks to anyone willing to help.

    Can the AP broadcast multiple SSID. So I could have WiFi between the 2 bridges and also have the dedicated SSID for the station?

    Thanks for the easy to understand explanation of how they need to be configured in order to work. I watched three different videos and this was the easiest to follow along with and set up while i watched.

    Would these devices be a good solution to send video traffic from a building A to building B? Building B is across the street with a switch,dvr and cameras. Thanks!

    That team is not a NanoStation M5, it's Nanostation Loco M5

  13. Jay Griffin - January 14, 2021

    Great video. I appreciate you sharing this since the documentation is difficult to digest. One suggestion would be more clear on the station versus the AP repeater. You use some other terms as well but it was not clear which is which and which side should be set up as what.. My understanding is this side with the Internet source should be there repeater and the distance I should be the station (and also referred to in the video as a client.)

    Can I purchase one of these and use it as just an Access Point? Id like to mount one on the side of my house and point it at my garage to give the garage a signal.

    Using this for a customer because a 6 strand fiber between the building went down . Checked the fiber with my visual fault locator basically my laser and found fibers dark due to construction on site until they can figure out who's the blame for the damage and what's the best action to replace or repair. This is a great setup to get there other office building backup and running. Also this could be a good backup Connection in the future when the fiber gets repair to replace. Thanks for the video review.

    This may have already been answered….apologies if so. I know you mentioned at 5:40 that these are capable of passing VLAN traffic. Does this mean that multiple VLAN traffic, both tagged and untagged, can be passed simultaneously over a single bridge deployment of two of these devices? For example, I need to pass both vlan1 and vlan2 traffic from building A to building B at the same time. Can this be done using these?

    I have a netgear ac1900 router in my house, I have a guest house 500ft away, could I use a pair of these to create a bridge to the guest house that'll feed another ac1900 router inside the guest house? would I be able to get 2.4ghz & 5ghz at the 2nd house through this setup?
