    Hi, I have installed a mesh system using the triple pack Deco M4 units. I have the opportunity of two free TP Link AC1750 access point modules.

    My question is that is there any benefit adding these to my existing mesh system, of course if this is possible to achieve?

    Thanks, thats helpful. As a trial I've tried connecting them using the Deco app and it won't do it?

    Thanks for that. I think this is going to be outside my scope of knowledge looking at that link!

    You can use them without an omada controller - but not sure they will mesh?
    Its pretty easy to use once you get going!
    Amazed you got them for free.. they are about £100 each?
