Model: Archer AX6000  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

I purchased an Archer Ax6000 router and I am looking to extend the network to my home office on the second floor.  The house is a 2600 2 storey house with a full basement.  My home office needs a minimum of 3 Ethernet ports for my desktop computers and printer.

 

My Ax6000 is setup on my main floor but it is very difficult to get a Ethernet wire to my office as it is over the garage.  My initial plan was to get an Re605x with a gigabit switch in my office and a second Re605x in my basement and have it setup as a onemesh network.

 

I was also thinking it may work to setup my Ax6000 router in the basement and add a second Ax6000 router as my extender in my office on the second floor and have the 2 Ax6000's work as a onemesh network

 

The benefit would be to hav a potentially faster setup in my office and no need for a gigabit switch but I would not have a router/extender on the main floor. Does this make sense?  Would anyone have a better suggestion?

 

Thank you.

Take a look at the OneMesh FAQ - in particular Q9 and Q10. You can't use two routers to build a OneMesh.

Using range extenders like Re605x is the way to build the OneMesh.

If these premises share the same power circuit you can use powerline adapters like TL-WPA8631P KIT V3 as well.

Hi,

 

The model number you recommended looks exactly like what I need, unfortunately it looks like they discontinued that product and I cannot find it for purchase here in Canada.  I will be purchasing a TL-PA9020P KIT instead and pair it with a gigabit switch.

 

Thank you for your help!

 

Matt
