Hello,

I have 3 units of deco x60.

I set the main unit to work in ap mode.

Now I want the follwoing layout:

modem/router----->Switch---main unit, unit 2, unit 3.

each unit in a difrrent floor.

is this layout possible, for ethrnet backhull and mesh fetures such as seamless roaming?

thanks in advance!

Hi, the layout is possible for both Ethernet backhaul and wireless backhaul;

Thank you.

@TP-Link 

to make it clear, the switch is the one connecting all 3 units.

This layout, all Deco units connected to same switch, will work when Deco mesh runs in Access Point mode. You will have Ethernet backhaul and all mesh features.

See General questions about Ethernet Backhaul feature on your Deco.

 

Little known fact: with such layout, if you power off Main Deco or it fails, another wired Deco will take role of Main Deco. It adds resiliency to Deco mesh.
