Does the setting "Use one radio (2.4 GHz) for client access and one radio (5 GHz) for client access and a mesh link" influence the "quality" of the 5 GHz signal? I'm getting complaints from users using the 5GHz channel.


Thanks!

I use this setup in several areas....

Take a look at the 5ghz side of both the "master" and the "slave"...  Are they on the same channel?
What are the power levels set for?

If the radios cannot get good capture between themselves, this will translate to poor client functions.  You may have to raise the power level at one or both sides.

You didn't indicate which AP you're using --- depending on model, you may have external antenna options to help as well.
