Firmware Version: 1.2.12

Hi, All-

 

Do you know if it is possible: I have a desktop currenty connected by ethernet to a M9 node which connects wirelessly to the Main node in the mesh. Is it possible to instead use the same M9 node to essentially work as wireless adapater for my desktop _connecting instead wirelessly to another (non-TP-Link) router_?

 

Thanks

Nope.  That is not how a Deco node functions.  You will need to purchase a device like "IOGEAR Ethernet-2-WiFi Universal Wireless Adapter, part#GWU637". This will connect to the Ethernet in your computer and will allow you to connect to the Wi-Fi SSID of your choice, thereby adding Wi-Fi to your computer.
