 A wifi mesh network consists of several access points (AP) that continuously communicate with each other and at the same time with the integrated network devices. Usually routers in the 2.4 and 5 GHZ frequency range. The new mesh devices also use a third radio module, with which they mesh together. As a result, the signals are not attenuated, but passed on in full. Unlike repeaters, the mesh units not only reinforce an existing WLAN network, but also generate the same WLAN signal themselves. A wifi mesh network consists of several access points (AP) that continuously communicate with each other and at the same time with the integrated network devices.

 +So the computer on the left hand side (PC) want to connect to the company infrastructure on the right hand side. So normally this would be a clear case for a WifiBridge, but we will use NB800(a) and NB800(b) to establish a connection via Mesh which is way faster and relaiableLet's get started:
