Re: Bare Metal installation

I suggest running CHR even on real hardware, it will be very fast and possibly even better than the ISO. You can run it on some other lightweight OS with KVM or HyperV or ESXi Some examples: https://mum.mikrotik.com/presentations/EU18/presentation_5188_1524562405.pdf https://mum.mikrotik.com/present...

no, that port only supports passive PoE output, at the same voltage as you input with the DC jack, so most likely camera will not work.

No, Woobm is not like a radio module, it's for administration access to the router itself, but it's not recognized as a wireless interface in the device, and is also not capable of high speeds.
You should exchange the hEX to a hAP which has wifi built in.

Rates will always drop to lowest, if there is no need for higher rate (if there is no traffic). This is also to save power. If you will have traffic, it will auto adjust to highest.

Most likely, you will not see 160MHz on any other device either, this is a very wide channel and can rarely be used in "one piece", so you can set up a 80+80MHz setup, by enabling the "extension channel" setting (extension-channel=XXXX).
