Just new to this and purchased a few Ubiquity Rocket M2s to play with.  I have successfully setup 2 of mesh nodes and all works if I connect using ethernet.

I was going to the standard ubiquity firmware for Wifi AP and then I saw the Mesh Access Point option thinking that this might be good to try.  It seems to connect OK and if I use manual IP addresses I can access the mesh node.  However I can no longer get DNS to resolve for the mesh node names.

Have I not clicked some option in the mesh access point settings?

Thanks in advance

I would *HIGHLY* recommend just using another wifi AP  instead of mesh access mode.  Get a router with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, then, you can secure the wifi AP with WPA2 security.

Is there any information available on minimum distances between a mesh node and mesh access point?
