Hi all,

I received and set up the product today and here are my thoughts from a fresh install perspective.

I have it setup like this,

Modem and 5 port switch > Router Deco > 2nd Deco wired into switch >3rd Deco Wireless

Here are my initial observations;

I can't tell if the 2nd Deco is actually using wired backhaul?
I can't see what my client devices are connected at in terms of Mbps, or which Deco unit.
I cant see the network topography, or connection rate at which the Decos are connected to each other at.

Everything seems to be working and the setup was easy but I would like much more information that what is currently available.

Let me know if I am missing some way to do the above things I mentioned.

YorkshireLion-

You want the switch AFTER the Gateway Deco, not connected to the Router. Reconnect & repower the Decos starting with the 1st (Gateway) and you should be all set.

I’m not sure what you mean, I have my modem going into the gateway deco, I also have my switch going into the gateway deco, second port. That has my Xbox, PlayStation 4 and Nvidia Shield. There is a port that carries a cat5e cable up into a computer room that has a Tp-Link switch connected to various devices including the deco.

I guess PMSyPly means that you shouldn't connect it this way. But according to your explanation your connection actually looks like this:

Modem > Router Deco > 5 port switch > 2nd Deco wired into switch >3rd Deco Wireless

The new release will support to show the client information how they connect to the Deco.
It will be released in the Q4 of this year.
Look forward to that.
