Two houses two meshes

As the title says I want to use one backbone between two houses but have two separate wireless meshes. Backbone will be cat6 connecting from house 1 to house 2. How can I setup a separate mesh wireless per house? I do not wish to simply extend house 1 wirelessly to house 2. TIA

Hello @skippy911,

 

If you have a clean line of sight, use AirMAX devices for the wireless bridge.

Just configure the wireless uplinks as you normally would but configure the wirelessly linked APs to prefer the AP in the corresponding house ("Manually configure the uplink priorities" is the option name under the AP Config).

You would put them on separate VLANs.
