I've just set up my two Wifi Boost sets, and I'm wondering whether the original one needs to stay connected to the router through the ethernet cable, or whether I can remove it and put it the booster in a different room (the second one is already where I want it to be)? Seems like it's kind of a waste to keep it next to the router, when the room with the router doesn't need any additional boosting. On the other hand, I don't want to monkey around with it anymore since it took a lot longer to set up than it should have.
Grateful for any input! Thanks!
Hi xray, thanks for your reply. The boosters came in a pack of 2, so by original I mean the first one of the pair, which is connected to the router by the ethernet cable. I didn't have any boosters before this, but from what I'm reading, it looks like I'll have to get at least one more.
The T3200M router requires an Ethernet connection to the first Boost. The newer Arcadian unit does not, once the Boost units are set up, it manages the mesh from the router itself, allowing placement of Boost units away from the router location.

@NFtoBC Good to know. I have the T3200M and don't use the Boost so I'm just going by the online info which is a bit vague when it comes to the Arcadyan. Does the Arcadyan (WiFi Hub) become one node in the mesh or does it disable it's own WiFi automatically when the boost is added?
