5).If you connect the extender to a TP-Link OneMesh router, the extender will automatically join the router’s OneMesh network and copy the router’s wireless settings.

Tip: It is recommended to enable Smart Connect on your host router to enjoy a seamless connection between dual-band networks. With Smart Connect enabled, your host router’s 2.4GHz and 5GHz share the same SSID (network name) and password. Refer to your host router’s user guide to enable Smart Connect.
