    Voxel Get Tx/Rx rates of connections to Satellites

    Hello. I was wondering if there a way to measure signal strength between the main router and Satellites, more specifically, the negotiated Tx/Rx data rates between them. It could be via SSH (contents of file) or the web UI. I'm running Voxel FW on my RBK50s. Thanks!
