Dear @Tsial,

 

Sorry for my delayed response.

 

@Philbert is correct, EAP225-Wall doesn't support mesh, and this information can be verified from the Datasheet.

 

To build an EAP mesh network, the uplink AP and downlink AP all need to support the mesh feature, the EAP225-Wall cannot work as uplink node to join the EAP mesh network.

Best Regards!

Hey

 

I am not familiar with these devices specifically, however looking a the data sheet and guides it would appear these devices do not work as a repeater / mesh node

 

I am lead to believe these devices require a physical cable connection.

I know the standard EAP225 / 245 APs can work as a mesh repeater via Wireless, however I have never tested them specifically using the 225wall as the uplink node

 

If you have one around power it on and update the firmware to support MESH, belive this to be from build 2.20 onwards.   If supported this should appear as ready to adopt with a WiFi symbol beside it pretty much instantly, just note however the mesh uplink and downlink need to be on the same channel to talk. 

 

Perhaps @Fae  or @Kevin_Z  would be able to answer if you can indeed mesh from the 225wall
