Model: Archer C6
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.3.5

I have a VR2100 as my modem/router, and a few Archer C6 in AP mode connected to it.

Although all are onemesh devices, the VR2100 does not recognize the C6 as a onemesh device.

 

why is that? How can I make it work?

Does smart connect has to be enabled on all devices for onemesh to work?

I now realize this is because the C6 APs are wire connected to the VR2100 router.

So onemesh doesn't work for wired APs? Any plan to change that?

@OJIL 

Good day.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

Yes, you are right.

You can use a OneMesh™ Wireless Router or Modem Router with several sets of Range Extenders or Powerline Adapters to create a OneMesh™ network. Be aware, you cannot create a OneMesh™ network between two routers.

and till now, we did not have the plan to add the OneMesh feature on access point mode;

Thank you very much!

@Sunshine 

 

you are not reading my question correctly so let me rephrase:

Why does onemesh not work between a router and an AP when they are connected in a wired connection, and only when they are connected wirelessly? Why can't I use a wired connection for a onemesh backbone? Is there a plan to change that?

 

 Thanks
