You can force MCS rate higher more aggressively at the risk of causing TCP/IP retransmissions, which will reduce throughput.For the 5GHz results, I always wonder how some devices are able to break away from the pack and maintain a high throughput even with a weaker signal. Are they configured to simply force a higher PHY rate and balance retransmissions with overall throughput as long as the data is not corrupt, or is there something more going on?
The tech support person gave wrong information. Tenda confirms Ethernet backhaul is supported. You first need to get all nodes connected via wireless, then connect the desired nodes via Ethernet.I just installed mine. Couldn't get Ethernet backhaul to work. I called their tech support and was told it is not supported.
Is there anything special to get it to work?
I can confirm that wired backhaul works and works well. I have tried the Deco M5 aiMesh, Velop, and Lyra. I find the Tenda to be the most stable and band steering seems to work better than the others. So far I am very happy with the Tenda system.The tech support person gave wrong information.

I am in the market for a mesh solution to upgrade my single ASUS RT_N66U. This rouuter has been an extreamly good performer, and not once since I got it (in 2011/12), have I had to reboot my router due to network issues. A stable IPS with fiber helps, but none the less, this is the way I want my home network to perform.
Due to low coverage in livingroom and poor performance on sonos devices, I want a future proof mesh network. The Asus AIMesh route is one option (customizable and upgradable), another one is a complete solution like this one from Tenda (setup and forget, less customization).
So, my question. How does this Tenda solution compare to Asus AIMesh?
The same thing happens with AiMesh, to fix it, I have to turn off and on the node.
Tenda MW6 Nova works without problem.
The product is available at 139€ in France today. I just have one concern on this product : there is no release note available of the embedded FW.
Do you know if the product is updated frequently ?
