For clarity as I am only on my 1st coffee – does Ethernet Backhaul work if both AiMesh Primary and Node are next to each other connected together by short ethernet cable ?
What is HP Switch model as maybe switch is not picking up (identifying) MAC addresses etc. as switch does need to be a L2 type.
If plugging an Ethernet cable between Aimesh primary and node does work for ethernet backhaul, then try the same setup but connecting both Primary and Node directly to switch to see if the switches routing table is the problem ?
As far as I am aware they are both plunged in the switch but via a patch panel would this make a difference or could it be just the length of the connection?
Unless the length is over 100metres, then unlikely to be length of cable, ‘patch panel you have’, indeed have a proper network at home.
Alas you may need to simplify your set-up. and only a thought, maybe try to changing your AiMesh node to an AP instead and see if that works as an alternative via you patch panel and switch etc. ?
Edit: also make sur the switches DHCP service is Off as you maybe picking up stray IP addresses ?
