Building mesh link with AP85TX and AP175.

Hi 

 

we have a task, but not sure if we can make it work. 

 

Is it possible to build a mesh link between AP85TX and AP175. assuming we have an right legacy antenna on AP85TX and 2x2 n-rated  antenna on AP175.

 

Regards,

You could in theory, but they would negotiate to legacy, non-802.11n rates.

 

Why you would not:

 

- the AP85TX is end of life, so the supportability of that solution would be in question.

- the link would be more unpredictable and have less resilience than if you use an AP175 on both ends

- I would not do this.
