I'm looking for the simplest and cheapest wired mesh network (one router with one satellite).
My vision is a C6 router with a wired connection to RE305 in access point mode. According to the RE305 product page, I could plug "the Ethernet cable into its Ethernet port to easily turn your wired internet connection into a dual band wireless access point."
Isn't that essentially an ethernet backhaul? Since I would be freeing up the second wireless band that would normally be used for wireless backhaul (true wireless extension). tp-link seems pretty adament in suggesting that no Onemesh products support ethernet backhaul (see Q5: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/2690/). I also chatted with support and they kind of gave me a non-answer about access points and wouldn't address if they were the same thing or had essentially the same function.
Or am I misunderstanding the concept of ethernet backhaul?
Thanks in advance
