[OLSR-users] Double radio mesh and OLSR

I want to know if OLSR will choose a route with the best throughput or
with the least number of hops if I put wireless nodes with 2 radios per
node and on different channels, communicating together through a pci
interface, or through a wired interface.

Examples of a node:

((( WRT1 <++++> WRT2 )))


((( is a wlan interface on channel 1
<++++> is a wired interface
((( is a wlan interface on channel 6

That way you can create a mesh network using the following channels:


You will avoid interference and you will not divide your bandwidth/2 at
each hop (this is the case if you use the same channel on each node).

The problem is to know which path OLSR will choose (the one with the
best throughput or the one with the minimum of hops?)

Do you have any ideas?
