Model: RE605X
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I'm currently using a RE450 to expand the coverage of my home's WiFi. I installed it in my room and I connect it to my computer via an Ethernet cable to establish an internet connection for my computer.

I'm thinking of buying a RE605X to replace it. However, it seems that the Ethernet Port of the RE605X is used to connect to the main router via an Ethernet cable to establish a 'wired' connection, as such the RE605X will be turned into an Access Point. I saw this as part of the description of this model on the website.

I'm currently confused as to if I can use the Ethernet Port to connect to my computer instead? As that's what I would use the Port for, and not connect it to the main router and turn the RE605X into an Access Point.

@bryanseng Hello, 

The Ethernet port on RE505X could be either an input or output port: 

You could set up network layouts like below

 

1. Router ))Wireless(( RE605X--- <Ethernet> computer

2. Router ---<Ethernet>RE605X ))((( laptops and mobile devices

 

Since you have 2 REs,   it is recommended to connect both range extenders to the router directly , avoid Re connecting to RE to ensure the performance
Topology 1: RE )))(( Router )))(( RE2
