Model: Archer C6
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Could you enable the onemesh functionality between multiple cabled routers, please?

 

I have a onemesh router Archer C6 connected per cable to a onemesh Archer VR2100 router (which is onemesh connected to repeaters).

 

Right now I cannot have the C6 router inside the onemesh. The C6 is currently connected in Accespoint Mode.

 

There are a number of threads related to that but not sure which one is more relevant. 

 

 

Alike asked in this thread here:

At this time OneMesh can only have a single router in the network.  This router has to be in Router mode.  The satellites can be range extenders or powerline adapters.  Also at this time OneMesh does not support Ethernet Backhaul at this time.

Thanks for your swift reply.  Any chance that this could be added as a future feature? 

Thanks!

Its very likely.  I am not sure if its on the roadmap but there are other features like WiFi Alliance's EasyMesh, which was annouced at our booth at CES as comming later this year.  That will for sure allow mutlple compatible routers in one mesh networrk.

Thanks.  This sounds great. I am already very happy how easy it was to set up my E550, VR2100 (in the Mesh), and further extend my WiFi per cable to another part of the house with the C6.

 

With the feature you have mentioned a smooth transition between these will work perfectly.

 

Looking forward to!
