Deco X60 ethernet backhaul with Xfinity X1 Modem/wifi-router
I just purchased deco X60, 3 pack. I want to setup mesh network that uses my existing Xfinity gateway (modem/wifi-router combo) to wire ethernet backhaul and use the same ssid on x60 mesh. Here is how I am planning to connect them……
Xfinity modem/wifi-router(ssid1) à gigabit switch à Deco1, Deco2 and Deco3.
- Can this be done and still be able to broadcast same ssid1 throughout house? My house is wired and each room has ethernet port that I will hookup each deco. So, each deco will be connecting to gigabit switch in basement. Please keep in mind that ssid1 is also being broadcast by Xfinity modem/wifi-router.
- Will I be able to use all mesh features? Along with firewall, virus protect etc.
- Do I need to wire each deco direct to switch or direct to modem/wifi-router combo? Or any other way to get what want to achieve.
Thanks for help.
