Model: Deco M4
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: M4R 2.0_1.5.2 Build 20210916 Rel. 56193

I have been using a tp-link range extender for a couple of years. It is an RE 650. This week I purchased and installed a Deco M4R mesh network replacing the RE 650 extender. Can I add the extender to this new network? If so, how?  Thanks!

Hi, RE650 could still work with Deco M4 as a normal wireless extender.

But you might need to set up RE650 via Tether APP or web UI, not via Deco APP.
