Quick topology of our network ---
BGW320 Modem --> Gryphon mesh wifi base --> Netgear GS324TP smart managed switch
On the BGW320, we have turned on IP passthrough and disabled both the 2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless radios on the BGW 320 in order to use an external wireless router.
It works great.
However, I was just poking around in the BGW's configuration screens and saw under HOME NETWORK > STATUS, the interfaces include:
Wi-Fi 2.4 Ghz
Wi-Fi 5 Ghz
I have two questions...
1. What is 5G Ethernet, in comparison to Ethernet? What exactly is "5G Ethernet"?
2. I do recall the back of the BGW320 had a "5G" label next to Port 1. We have our Gryphon router plugged into Port 2. (We have nothing plugged into port 1, or any of the other ports.) Should I have our mesh router plugged into that 5G port or into the Ethernet ports?
