Re: Etherney Backhaul speeds on bh_report


@exmwrote:

Did another reset:

149182A587D4  192.168.1.178    192.168.1.198     eth1  wired              0  224.59000     up

Again, .175 is wired to .198 using Cat6. why is it doing a WifFi backhaul?


It is showing that because the community college dropouts who write the FW for Linksys/Belkin don't know what they are doing....you were suckered into buying a high end product that is basically garbage. If you can return it, you should.

Re: Etherney Backhaul speeds on bh_report

Do you mean .178 not .198.

Are you daisychaining them?

I.e. node1 —> node2 —> node 3.

Are you able to use a switch and connect them all directly to the parent node. Failing that (sounds stupid) perhaps try the other port in .175

Did you wire the cat6 yourself? Do you have a cat6 cable tester? I have many time tried to debug and found one twisted pair not working.

.198 is the master node. There's Gigabit switch connecting to:

.178 basement

.173 attic. This node is chained to .175

 

So

.198 -> .178

.198 -> .173 -> .175

 

I'll get a cable tester.

My cable test was really cheap like £10 from eBay/amazon

Lights up each wire number tests if one is not connected.

Re: Etherney Backhaul speeds on bh_report

Even if the cable is faulty, the other results are a mess.

Now I'm getting this. I'm giving up! Smiley Wink

It’s looking better. Perhaps trial the beta firmware (look for the thread on it)

Re: Etherney Backhaul speeds on bh_report

Got my tester. On my CAT6 cable #4 doesn't light up. Is that expected? This is a very long cable going through the outside of the house so I can't easily replace it. If it's faulty, is it usually the connector or inside the cable itself? Otherwise I guess I'll have to live with 100Mpbs performance for now.

Re: Etherney Backhaul speeds on bh_report

Did you crimp them yourself? Have a look to check if number 4 wire is all the way in.

Could be work either replacing both ends or wire in a faceplate

No, this was a cable I purchased on Amazon.om
