channel setting on wireless mesh

Hi,

In our mesh network. there are 8 root ap's and 15 mesh ap's. we'r using 1552E ,i have few questions on it:

1. If the ap's acting as mesh ap are connected with only 2.4 ghz external antenna, will they have problem joining the root access point to form mesh

2. How should we set the channel assignments. Do we only set them in root ap's

3. should the channels be set under 802.11a ?

4.should the channel be manually set or should it be left to be chosen dynamically.

Thanks in advance.

Are you trying to use 2.4ghz as backhaul instead of 5ghz?

Mesh APs are like client, it scans & select the channel automatically and join RAP.

A radio is static for backhaul, G radio can be RRM or static.
