Wifi Mesh Router with ZTE279 Smart Hub

Just Moved In

Is it possible to use a wifi mesh router like TP-Liink Deco with the ZTE279 Smart Hub?

It is possible. You would have to connect one of the Deco units directly to the ZTE with an ethernet cable and then connect the remaining Deco units as instructed by TP-Link.

Be aware that you will end up with 2 different SSID's. You can't use the same SSID as the hub on your mesh router. If you get good coverage with the mesh router alone then consider disabling the WiFi on the hub so that the mesh WiFi doesn't need to compete with the hub WiFi.

Instructions for getting to the settings screen to disable the hub WiFi are the same as for changing the password.
