Deco X60 - Can it backhaul over powerline?
I just installed a Deco X60 3-pieces kit. I have cable, 300Mbps.
- Base unit in the basement. It connects with the cable modem and with a Netgear switch, as I have ethernet in most of the rooms
- 1st mesh unit in the living room; backhaul is wireless
- 2nd mesh unit in the family room; backhaul is ethernet
The Deco works well. I have 300Mbps on the base unit and the 2nd mesh unit that backhauls via ethernet. However, the 1st mesh unit that backhauls via wireless has 100-120Mbps at most. My question is: can Deco X60 backhaul via Powerline? My idea is to buy a TP-Link powerline kit, plug one adapter on the router / switch, and the other one in the living room, to then connect the 1st mesh Deco X60 unit to it via a cable so that it can backhaul via powerline instead of wireless, hopefully boosting the throughput. Does it work? Is Deco X60 compatible with powerline for the backhaul?
