I just spent a small fortune for this mesh system to find out I can't even set it up without giving tplink my email address?
What gives? Why do I need my email account tied to my access points? There is no rational answer to why you need a web account linked to an access point. This and the lack of any control / functionality for MY devices is why I am sending them back to Amazon.
TP Link must start putting this requirement on thier product literature. I felt cheated and trapped into signup. I bought the hardware. I own the hardware. I do not rent the hardware.
Give us a simple web interface for settings and tell marketing to F off.
