NanoStation M5 - airMAX/WiFi?
Just flashed a NanoStation M5 with AREDN. Couple of questions about the hardware, if anyone is familiar:

1. Once configured via wired connection, would I expect to be able to see the mesh SSID as a visible WiFi network from another device, eg a smartphone? Because I don't. I wonder whether this is because the NanoStation M5 is airMAX, rather than standards-compliant WiFi, and normally used for point to point links with other airMAX gear?

2. The device has two Ethernet ports but they seem to just be a passthrough. Am I right in assuming the WAN connection is exposed as a separate VLAN on one/both of those ports?

1. Yes, when the other device is on the same bandwidth and capable of scanning the channel of the Nanostation.
2. Yes on at least the 'Main' port.

I hope that helps, Chuck
