Yes, that is what I am experiencing on r50671. Mesh seems to require a dedicated radio. This makes it unusable in my case due to distances. I can't use a 5GHz backhaul like poyntzj because the distanc ...

Yes, hops are possible by creating a Virtual Access Point (VAP) using the WDS AP as the mode.
