Description

Hi

We have noticed that in the following combinations:
1) Ubiquiti Nanostation XW old (pre 1847G) and new (post 1846G) with qMp 4.2.1, 4.2.2 or Kalimotxo
2) Comfast Cf-E120A-V3 with qMp Experimental aka Kalimotxo
3) TP-Link CPE 510-V3 with qMp Experimental aka Kalimotxo

Any of those devices-versions are not working in 'mesh + legacy' mode.
When 'mesh + legacy' is selected they are working as mere 'mesh' mode.

This is happening with those four models in any version higher that 4.2.
qMp 4.2 works fine.

The tests have been conducted with a 3.2.1 Ubiquiti Nanostastation (pre 1847G).
This last device works well with any device running qMp 4.2 or lower.

Regards
Alex

See "bmx6 -c links" above, there are two connections via wlan0_12 (11s) and wlan0a_12 (adhoc) to another device with the same 11s+legacy settings (this other device with qMp 4.2.3).
