Model: RE605X  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi, 
I have Archer AX73 router and i need range extender, thinking about RE605X.
My setup is ZTE 4G mobile modem/router which i will connect to AX73 router. Now i need range extender and i saw RE605X can get internet connection via Ethernet cable rather than WIFI.
my question is would this work if i connected like that:
- mobile modem to AX73
- mobile modem to RE605X

most likely no but wanted to confirm. 
thing is i do not have enough Ethernet cables installed to connect modem -> AX73 -> RE605X.

is my only option WIFI connection between AX73 and RE605X?

thank you.

@Ignasnn 

May I know do you use  4G Mobile modem router as the internet source? If your 4G mobile modem is a modem & router combo, your topology should be feasible: 

4G Modem router <Ethernet>AX73  

4G Modem router <Ethernet> RE605X (set up in AP mode) 

 

RE605X will be the same subnet as your 4G mobile router.

@Solla-topee hello,

 

First of all thank you a lot for answer. 

Yes 4G modem i also a router (has DHCP) and yes, this is source of internet. 

If i setup the network as you described:

modem/router wired connection to AX73

modem/router wired connection to RE605X

 

Will AX73 and RE605X be the same WIFI network under same name?

Hi @Ignasnn, AX73 will create a local network, and Modem router & RE605X are in a different local network.

AX73 & RE605X will have 2 separate and isolated Wi-Fi signals. You could set up the same SSIDs for AX73 and RE605X,nowadays devices could remember the credential and roam between 2 WiFi according to the signal strength, but there will be a few secs cut-off when roam between WiFi to WiFi.
