Proper pairing of radios on the MR58, MR62 and MR66 for Directional point-to-point links

Table of contents
No headers
Radios R1, R2, and R3 on the MR58 (and radios R1 and R2 on the MR66) use different portions of the frequency spectrum (R1 = 5.2 GHz, R2 = 5.8 GHz [MR58 only] and R3 = 2.4GHz), be careful to connect each antenna in a link pair to the correct radio so they are on matching frequencies.   

 

Examples


[MR58-1] (R1) <---> (R1) [MR58-2]

[MR66-1] (R2) <---> (R2) [MR66-2]

Sometimes, more than 1 hop is necessary to reach a the gateway AP. In this instance a middle repeater MR58 is in between relaying the signal to repeat to the endpoints:

[MR58-GW] (R1) <---> (R1) [MR58-2] (R2) <---> (R2) [MR58-3]

In this case, MR58-GW is using R1 on 5.2GHz to communicate with MR58-2 using R1 on 5.2GHz and MR58-2 is using R2 on 5.8 GHz to communicate with MR58-3 who is also using R2 at 5.8GHz.

 

Note: The MR58 is usable in the EU, and the frequencies chosen under the ETSI regulations are different. Two frequencies at the opposing ends of the 5.4 - 5.7 GHz block will be used, not the 5.2 and 5.8 GHz used in the USA.
