Model: Archer AXE300  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi, 

 

i have the Archer AXE300 router and I have a big house so I need to add a mesh to cover all, my questions:

1. can I use my router and the DECO x95 system to work as one mesh covering my house?

2. should I use the "OneMesh" range extenders instead of the DECO system?

3. which will give better coverage, reliability and speed results Archer AXE300 + OneMesh range extenders OR AXE300 + DECO X95?

 

thanks ahead for any answers.

Hi, thank you very much for posting on TP-Link Community.

1. You could connect Deco products to Archer AXE300, but they will not be able to create a mesh network, as OneMesh and Deco Mesh are two different mesh technologies and they are not compatible. Refer to Q1 of this guide: Several questions about the OneMesh™ and Mesh

 

However, the Deco products could work as AP and build Deco Mesh among Deco products, which can be one your options.

 

2. Using OneMesh range extenders is indeed one of the options

 

3. Considering OneMesh doesn't support Ethernet Backhaul, while Deco Mesh does, and Ethernet connection is always the best way to ensure a stable and fast connection, using Deco products would be a better option especially when Ethernet backhaul is possible at your home.

 

For more details about the differences among different Mesh technologies, please refer to this guide: Differences between Deco Mesh, One Mesh, Easy Mesh and Omada Mesh, can they work together

Hi and thanks for the reply but correct me if I'm wrong, if I use deco with my router it means I need to put one unit next to the router to act as the main mesh unit right? that means that I "lose" the router capabilities as a wifi coverage and it also means I will need more deco units to cover my house (as the x95 has 2 units per pack and i will need to sacrifice 1 unit to be the main unit next to the router instead of using the router capabilities.

Yes, you are correct, but if there is some cable wiring in the wall, the main Deco unit can be located at other places instead of next to the router, but if that is not possible, it needs to stay next to the router unless a long cable is used.
