    look like the new it's not so good at walls even that everything else is better. prefer range over throughput

    Thanks Villy - the other OM models offer great range (and less throughput). The MR1750 offers more of both.

    The OM5P-AN does not support meshing with an MR1750 over 5Ghz, will the OM5P-AC support a 5Ghz mesh with the MR1750?

    Gregg - No, the OM5P-AC can only mesh on 2.4GHz at this time.

    On the specification page you say:
    "The OM5P-AC performs best as a wired access point. It performs well as a mesh repeater when paired with a high-power gateway such as the MR1750. We do not recommend using this model as a mesh gateway."

    In the few cases where meshing is important in my environment, should I use my OM5P-AN devices (as the mesh gateway and mesh repeater) instead of the new OM5P-AC devices? Or what do you recommend?

    John - It's best to use a high power radio for a gateway in mesh environments so when using the OM5P-AC as a repeater it's best to pair it with the MR1750.

    Any support for 5Ghz meshing yet?

    Gregg - Not yet but we're still working on it!
