Model: Archer AX6000  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

My business already has a non-mesh router by another company. I want mesh but must keep the non-tplink ink router. Can this model or any other work as mesh access points only? 

 

Would I also be able to use the Deco app?

Hello @JoyriderBC, thank you for reaching out to us and welcome to the TP-Link community.

 

If the Archer AX6000 is in AP mode, you can't use the OneMesh feature. See OneMesh FAQ - Q7/A7.

 

We have explained that in this thread also, please have a check:
[Wi-Fi Routers] AP Mode supports OneMesh

Does this work?  There are about 50 computers plus Wifi devices and security cameras.

Hello @JoyriderBC, are all the 50 computers connected to the switch via LAN cables? The network layout is OK, you can connect one Deco X60 to the AX6000 via Ethernet cable and configure it as an Access Point mode, the other 2 Deco X60 connect to the main X60 via cable or Wi-Fi to build the mesh network. Please be aware that the AX6000 and the Deco X60 cannot build up the same mesh network. If there is no need for a wireless connection from the AX6000, you can disable it to avoid wireless interference.

Thank You Kevin.  Are you sure the Ax6000 router mode and  x60 cannot be on the same OneMesh system? https://www.tp-link.com/ca/onemesh/product-list/ 

 

Ax6000 says it supports OneMesh.  BTW, the link you provided is dead but I don't need it.

Hello @JoyriderBC, sorry but yes, Archer AX6000 cannot build a mesh network with Deco X60, they belong to different mesh system, one is Onemesh and the other is Deco mesh, I guess you can visit this link instead:

TP-Link OneMesh™ VS Deco Mesh: What's the Difference?

 

You can also refer to the FAQ to know more about the difference:

Several questions about the OneMesh™ and Mesh
