Hello, I would like to connect 3 TP-LINK Deco M5 units with Ethernet cables (each will go directly to the existing router with a separate cable) and create a mesh network. Is it possible to use a second Ethernet port and connect a TV via it, for example, or can it only be used to connect another Deco unit?

@Nefer yes the second port can be used to connect a device.

If you plan to have all nodes go to the router, make sure to set up the Deco with only one node wired to the router. Set up the Deco like a router, then switch the operating mode to AP Mode, after you will then be able to wire all nodes to the main router.
