Ethernet port on Instant On 15

Hi,

Is it possible to use the Ethernet port (for LAN connectivity) on the Indoor AP instant on 15 when the uplink is over WiFi (Mesh with other Instant on)?

@EduardoHG9  Ethernet bridging is not an option when using over the air (Mesh) connections.

This sounds like a nice feature that should be added. SMB who will be purchasing this product could utilize this feature for getting network connections in remote places of an office.

@GThiesen @Sharanya Have there been any updates to allow ethernet bridging via mesh? I have the same business requirement. At present the only alternative is to install a competitor's solution. I notice the original post is from about 6 months ago.

@twhiteOXEN You can use two AP11D's to create a mesh and plug-in devices on the point side of the mesh as they have additional ports. The AP15 still does not support this.

Re: Ethernet port on Instant On 15

Thank you @GThiesen. Is it possible to leverage ports on the mesh AP side as well? Or only on the head end unit?

@twhiteOXEN Yes only on the AP11D.

So for any wired port functionality on the far end you would need to have a wire connecting the two AP11D units or a 3rd party point to point bridge connecting the two (Ubiquiti, Mikrotik, etc.)?
