@Joelbenben 

Hi, welcome to the community.

Do you have some requirements about the satellite Deco, such as supporting WPA3, 802.11ax speed, tri-bands?

There are some features that need to be supported by both main Deco and satellite units, otherwise, you could only use it on the main Deco.

But generally speaking, Deco X20 would be a better choice.

Thank you.

@TP-Link I know the X20 is faster and is WiFi 6, but what I'm unsure about is whether that speed advantage over the M9 Plus is lost because it is two-band. The one edge the M9 Plus has over the X20 (other than form factor) is a backhaul that can communicate with my X90 router and satellite. Am I correct? And are there other reasons I should go with the X20? (WPA3 is not a concern.)
