Configure basic settings for a new mesh point configuration or modify the device settings on an existing mesh point configuration.
|Is Root||Select the root behavior of this mesh point. Select True to indicate this mesh point is a root node for this mesh network. Select False to indicate this mesh point is not a root node for this mesh network|
|Root Selection Method||Use the drop-down list box to determine whether this meshpoint is the root or non-root meshpoint|
|Path Method||Select the root path selection method used in the mesh network. For available path methods, see Mesh Point Configuration|
|Set as Cost Root||Select to set the mesh point as the cost root for meshpoint root selection|
|Monitor Critical Resources||Select to allow dynamic conversion of a mesh point from root to non-root when there is a critical resource failure|
|Monitor Primary Port Link||Select to allow dynamic conversion of a mesh point from root to non-root during a link down event|
|Wired Peer Excluded||Select to exclude a mesh from forming a link with another mesh device that's a wired peer|
NoteWhen using 4.9 GHz, the root preferences selection for the radio's preferred interface still displays as 5 GHz.
|Preferred Neighbor||Specify the MAC address of a preferred neighbor within the mesh topology|
|Preferred Root||Specify the MAC address of a preferred root device|
|Preferred Interface||Use the drop-down list box to set the preferred mesh point interface to either 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz, or 5.0 GHz|
|Minimum Threshold||Type or use the spinner control to set the minimum value for SNR (between -100 to 0 dB) above which a candidate for the next hop in a dynamic mesh network is considered for selection. This field along with Signal Strength Delta and Sustained Time Period are used to dynamically select the next hop in a dynamic mesh network|
|Signal Strength Delta||Type a delta value or use the spinner control to set the signal strength between 1 to 100 dB. A candidate for selection as a next hop in a dynamic mesh network must have a SNR value that is higher than the value configured here. This field along with the Minimum Threshold and Sustained Time Period are used to dynamically select the next hop in a dynamic mesh network|
|Sustained Time Period||Type the duration or use the spinner control to set the time period in seconds for the duration a signal must sustain the constraints specified in the Minimum Threshold and Signal Strength Delta path hysteresis values. These values are used to dynamically select the next hop in a dynamic mesh network|
|SNR Delta Range||Type or use the spinner control to set the delta range between 1 to 100 dB. The device must sustain a signal strength within the delta range to be considered a candidate|
