I’ve already opened a support ticket for my inquiry, but I understand that they have a lot to do. So maybe s/o from the community is able to help me as well.
I own one of the first Turris Omnia devices (revision CZ11NIC13) and I’m very happy with it.
In order to get better WiFi coverage for all areas in the house I’m now planning to build a WiFi Mesh network based on 802.11s/B.A.T.M.A.N.
Since we don’t have network wiring throughout the house I would like to use Tri-Band devices in order to have a dedicated radio for backhaul for optimal performance.
So I’ve got some questions:
Is it possible to add another Compex WLE900VX to the non-used mPCIe slot of the Turris Omnia in order to get a Tri-Band device? Seems that there might be an issue with the WiFi antennas, as there are only two holes for additional antennas, unless I drill a hole for another one?
If the upgrade of the Omnia is not an option, can I configure Turris MOX Base with Modules E and B having WLE900VX cards installed on both of them, in oder to achieve the same?
Can I use Turris MOX base with only two or three E modules in order to create a OSS Layer3 Switch? I also plan to use dynamic routing for LAN and Lab in the near future…
