Hi

 

I would like to expand my DECO coverage to outdoor and was looking at some TP-LINK EAP225. I realized that EAPs can also provide MESH.

So I thought are EAPs compatible with DECO?

 

if not compatible, what TP-LINK (outdoor) are compatible with DECO?

 

Thanks!

Hello, the Deco and EAP225-Outdoor supports mesh both, while they cannot build up ONE mesh network together. They are separated from each other. 

 

You can use the Deco to broadcast a mesh network indoor and then connect the EAP225-Outdoor to the Deco and make EAP225-Outdoor another mesh network outside. 

 

For more information about EAP225-Outdoor, you can start a thread at https://community.tp-link.com/en/business

 

Good day.

Hello,

 

As we mentioned previously, Deco can only build a mesh network with the Deco, it can't build a mesh network with the non-Deco devices. However, you can still connect the EAP225 to the Deco E4 with an Ethernet cable to extend its wireless range and they will work, it's just they cannot build up a mesh network together.

 

Good day.
