Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I live in a rural area and cellular is the best (still not that good) option for internet access. I was wondering if I plugged a second modem with cellular access into a different M5 on the same wireless mesh network how the network would react. 

 

I assume this would be foolish, but if the network has a way to divy up request between the two modems that would be awesome. Thanks.

You are correct.  The Deco's can only detect one provider as the source.  trying to connect a 2nd provider in would deffianlty cause network issues and should be avoided.

Thanks! That's what j needed to know. How about this, I have 5 m5's. Could i separate them into two different networks, 2 connected to one modem, 3 connected to the other, maybe set up where one modem/network is one each end of the house?
