Detailed description:

I'm not currently able to use ethernet backhaul mode on my mesh system.

I can disable the backhaul link on the router and then use the second 5GHz band as a separate SSID but I can't do it on the node. Therefore I completely loose the mesh benefit for that second 5GHz band.

Also there is no "Tri-band smart connect" option. The configuration page always shows that the 5GHz-2 band is used for the backhaul link (even though it's not entirely true).

I found this FAQ: support/FAQ/1044184/ (I can't post links so prefix this with asus.com/) which seems to improve things but apparently it's still in a beta version of the firmware and I really need this feature. When can I expect that version of the firmware to be released?
