Model: Deco M5  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hey there.

 

I have three Deco M5s that I want to integrate into my home network to supply Wi-Fi.
 

The general layout, and requirements, of my home network is this:

 

I'm already using a switch to provide connections to a bunch of desktops.

 

The challenge is, I want to ensure all Decos have wired backhaul.

How would you approach this setup?

Many thanks.

Configure Deco mesh to run in Access Point mode. Switching a Deco to Access Point (AP) Mode

 

In that mode, you can wire Deco unit(s) anywhere Ethernet cable is.

You can even do this: unplug PC, plug M5 to that Ethernet cable, connect another Ethernet cable to the second port of M5 and use it to connect PC to it. Think of M5 as a device that has two-port gigabit Ethernet switch.
