General questions about EasyMesh
Q1. What TP-Link product will support EasyMesh?
A. You may refer to the TP-Link EasyMesh Compatible Devices
NOTE: Please be aware that certain models will require firmware updates to support EasyMesh, you could pay attention to the subsequent firmware releases on the TP-Link official website.
Q2. Can I use TP-Link EasyMesh products together with TP-Link OneMesh or Deco Mesh products?
A. Yes and No. Wi-Fi EasyMesh, TP-Link OneMesh™, and Deco Mesh are three different mesh Wi-Fi solutions provided by TP-Link. You cannot build a mesh network by mixing TP-Link OneMesh™ routers/extenders with Deco Mesh, but you can build up a mesh system with TP-Link EasyMesh and OneMesh™ devices. In other words, you can still build up a mesh network if you have “EasyMesh router + Onemesh extender” or “OneMesh router + EasyMesh extender”.
Q3. Will EasyMesh support Ethernet Backhaul?
A. EasyMesh routers or extenders are planned to support Ethernet Backhaul and some of the EasyMesh routers have already supported it via a firmware upgrade. Please keep an eye on the official website and the router’s online updates for firmware updates when the new features are available.

Q10. Can I use my own router which doesn't support EasyMesh as the main router?
A. No, for now, we will still need the main router to support EasyMesh at least, then it will help handle and decide when and how we should connect and roam in our EasyMesh WiFi network.
Q11. If I disable the EasyMesh function on the main router’s web mistakenly, can I turn it back on to recover the original EasyMesh connection?
A. It depends on the type of satellite devices. If the satellite device is a range extender, it can recover the EasyMesh connection automatically. But if the satellite device is a router, it cannot rejoin the EasyMesh network automatically.
