I just purchased a Deco M5 and am wondering something.
I understand that activating the wifi backhaul on a dual band mesh penalizes the mesh because it will use half of the 5ghz antennas for the backhaul.
If Node #1 is wired to Node #2, and Node #3 is 100% wireless, will I penalize half the antennas of Nodes #1 and #2, or will I only penalize Node #3?
I looked at the tp-link FAQs, as well as the forums. I only found confirmations that this hybrid mode does work, but no confirmation on the question above.
