but I don't know the answer.
I've a point-to-point backhaul that can handle 10MBps each way, A (gateway) <> B (serving clients).
Presently I've the backhaul interface at B on one Mikrotik board connected to another Mikrotik with two directional wireless access points each serving half-a-dozen clients. If I replaced those two directionals with a single omni serving all twelve clients, all on one board, would throughput to the clients suffer?
Sometimes I decide it wouldn't matter as I'm limited to the 10MBps on the backhaul anyway, and a single access point can spread that around 12 clients as quickly as passing it between two boards and two AP interfaces, but then sometimes I get a feeling in my gut that two AP interfaces must be better in maximising throughput in some way I can't pin down.
Anyone know the answer?
