  @TechPriest 

Hi, welcome to the community.

Are you going to set up Deco X90/M9 plus in Wireless router mode or Access Point mode?

Normally Deco X90 is recommended as the main Deco and if there are multiple floors and thick walls, Ethernet Backhaul over all the satellite Mesh nodes is always the first option.

Topology 3 would be much better:

3.  Internet - Bell2000 Modem to X90 connected to switch.   2nd X90 and M9s connected to Switch

 

More details about the Ethernet Backhual, please refer to General questions about Ethernet Backhaul

 

Thank you very much.

Best regards.

  @TechPriest Hi Guys, As you know I was looking for the best option to include my MESH network of 2# - X90; 3# - M9 and 3# M5 into my Home network [ OC200, ER605, TL-SG2428P and TL-SG2218]  ***** OKAY - No wise cracks. When I built my home 18 Years ago - WiFi was a baby, so I had all the rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor wired for Ethernet and some coaxial. I then wired the basement myself with multiple jack to meet my business needs then. All terminating in a room under the main stairs in a Rack

 

Results of testing various options with my equipment FAILED because this equipment does not support CLI

 

The option works well when I connect directly to BELL 2000, then into an old switch and connecting 2# - M9 and the other X90 in backhaul mode I have GREAT coverage throughout my 5000 sq ft home with concrete, metal beams and brick.
