I am using R610 and 2 x R510 with Cat6 cabling connected. So, should I turn "ON" the Mesh function?

I am using R610 and 2 x R510 with Cat6 cabling connected. So, should I turn "ON" the Mesh functtion? But I am afraid Mesh will not use the Cat6 cable, so that the speed will drop, right?

Hi Leo,

You only need to enable the MESH functionality if one or more of your APs are not connected to the main LAN.  E.g. An AP in a room or part of your building that is not possible to run structured cabling to.

Hope that helps,

Hi Darrel,

Thanks for your prompt reply, so you mean that Mesh function  is not useful in my case because all my 3 x Ruckus AP are all wired to switching hub, right?  Thanks in advance!

Hi Leo,

Yes, exactly!  You have absolutely no need for Mesh functionality in that instance and even if you do enable it, Ruckus SmartMesh is inteliigent enough not to create a mesh infrastructure because it knows it could reduce overall performance.  

Thanks,
Darrel.

Hi Leo,


There should not be any issues enabling Mesh as you worry, if there is any Mesh AP enable it else that option can be ignored.
