I want to create a mesh wifi network using Tp-Link’s One Mesh products. 

Basically i need to get a Tp-Link wireless router and a range extender that supports One Mesh. 

 

I want to connect them both over ethernet for a more stable and faster connection. 

 

Can i acheive a mesh wifi network between them if i connected them over ethernet?

  @TaKeOVER No, I can. 
 

simply connect them over ethernet and name the ssids the same and give them the same password.

OneMesh does not support Ethernet backhaul so the connection would be over Wi-Fi only.

 

You can still move forward with the setup you want in having the devices wired and setting our range extender in AP Mode and connect an Ethernet cable. You would just not have mesh features or have the network nodes recommend the best one to connect to so it will be up to the client device on which to connect to. Another alternative would be to make the network names different for each node where you would manually select which you want to connect to in order to avoid any confusion.

Isnt there a circularity here? You want to have good wifi coverage in a building. Presumably because you have wifi no go zones. (Like me in an old house with metre thick walls).  So you choose a oneMesh solution. Except that you cannot have a Mesh unless you do have good wifi coverage:- and hence do not need the product to start with.

 

I found this today when I sought to add an AX10 to my existing OneMesh install (of 2 RE190 and a MR600).  I bought the AX10 to replace an existing wifi router:- an unecessary replacement?

  @Solla-topee 

What happens if I set up repeater RE505X or RE603X in OneMesh mode. Then power off and connect an ethernet cable from router or switch to the repeater? I was testing and it seemed speed was faster. Repeater still shows in OneMesh mode in the App. Is it switching to AP mode automatically but still showing OneMesh Extender configuration?

 Hello  @TaKeOVER thank you for asking, connecting both wired & wireless connection may cause a loop in the network or lead some other issues, I've seen a case that customer found PC connected to router does not work properly. If the distance is too far, it is recommended to wire RE to router and use it in AP mode.
