Question about one mesh and AX6000

Model: Archer AX6000  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Hi

 

I'm really excited about the release of the one mesh update for archer AX6000 but I have a question.

 

My house is made of brick and concrete and also very large. I'm talking about 600 square meters. I do have parts of the house without coverage but I'm not worried about at this moment.

 

I own 2 AX6000 and planning to buy an 11000 to my man cave, I do also have 2 repeaters with wifi 6 ( I can't remember the model)

 

Am I gonna be able to use those 5 tp link devices to create a mesh network? The 5g network is really really weak at some points but with the addition of the 11000 I want to think that that will be solved.

Before buying any additional HW, you should familiarize yourself with the options for using it in your network. Regarding OneMesh technology it's worth reading QA section. Pay attention to Q5, Q8 & Q10.

There's a scenario where you can use your already aquired equipment: One AX6000 in Router mode connected by OneMesh with your existing 2 repeaters. Also ethernet cable from the AX6000 router to the second AX6000 AP (second one in AP mode, so you can extend the wireless coverage further in your home). The drawback here is that the second AX6000, which is in AP mode, would not participate in OneMesh network, but still will extend further your wireless coverage (for example configuring the same SSIDs as on the main one).

@Ivaylo as my house is like a rectangle the part that currently doesnt have coverage is where i plan to put the AX11000. If i put the AX11000 in AP mode and with the same ssid is that going to give me problems?

 

Do you have an idea if TP link plan to let us use 9ur routers in one mesh? Honestly its kind of disappointing since a RE cant perform as a router

No, it won't going to give you problems. That's the way you can extend your wireless coverage in there. Just won't let you use OneMesh (it doesn't work between routers).

There's another solution for a big areas to cover, like in your case - using the TP-Link's DECO technology.

For example instead buying a router you can go ahead for DECO system (2 or 3 pack) - for ex. X20 or X60 if you are targeting AX standard.

Configuring the DECO in AP mode (connected to your main router) will give you a better wi-fi experience than the OneMesh IMHO.

Moreover, unlike the OneMesh, DECO supports ethernet back-haul.

As for the TP-Link forthcoming plans, I am not aware, that's up to TP-Link to announce them, if any.
