Model: Deco X20  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version:

I installed 3 unit mesh X20 system in access point mode. The master unit is in the den and one remote is in the kitchen. I want to add a device in the kitchen that has an ethernet port (NO WIFI). Can I plug the ethernet port into one of the RJ45 ports on the D3eco unit. and connect to the mesh system that way? I  am afraid to do this as a trial because I am worried that I will cause some sort of feedback loop.

  @VegasSam,

YES! This is one of the main advantages of mesh networks, and why many mesh nodes have fewer ethernet ports than a standard router. This is an extremely efficient way to distribute the load on the network, or to provide a more consistent connection to your home entertainment center.

 

In my case, I have network switches that support my wired security cameras after the mesh nodes, that way they use the dedicated backhaul, rather than the usable network signals to transmit their data into the main network and storage medium.
