  @BoyTSU The Archer A6 v3 don‘t supports EasyMesh,and Onemesh only be used to connect router with RE/PLC.

Maybe you can try using the WDS Bridging function, refer to:How do I use the WDS Bridging function to extend my wireless network? | TP-Link

Or use AP mode to set wired bridge: How to configure Wireless Router as Main AP Mode? | TP-Link

the solution given is working. Thanks a lot. Now when I'm connected to the root router Archer A6 and done the speedtest, I can get the expected speed of 200Mbps++ (which is my internet plan). And when I connect to the bridged Archer A6, I'm only getting 60-70Mbps. I'm wondering what causes the speedtest result dropped on the bridged Archer A6.

Hi,

 

Which one of the solutions have you opted for? WDS bridging or AP mode wired bridge?

 

In case it's the WDS bridging, have you connected to two Archer A6 V3 via 2.4 GHz WDS or via 5 GHz WDS? And how far are the two routers apart?

 

The speeds you've given are more in line with what one could expect from a 2.4 GHz WDS connection.

  @woozle used the WDS bridging via 2.4Ghz.
