How to Join an OneMesh Network with a Range Extender Already Set Up
Once the extender is connected to a TP-Link OneMesh router via web browser or WPS button, the extender will automatically join the router’s OneMesh network and copy the router’s wireless settings. You can manually join an OneMesh network during the configuration via the TP-Link Tether app. For more information about setting up the extender with OneMesh network, refer to the following FAQs:
If you have already set up the extender before without joining the OneMesh network, choose one of the methods below to set up an OneMesh network:
