How to connect Whole Home discs to a mesh router

I have a Fritz!box 7590 Mesh WiFi router and want to extend its range by connecting 3 BT Whole Home discs. As the router is already a mesh device can all the BT discs can be added wirelessly i.e. without having to wire the first disc in by Ethernet cable? If so, is it straightforward to add BT discs to the existing router mesh or is there a lot of complicated renaming of individual SSID's?

This is not possible, BT discs create their own mesh, one of the discs needs to be connected to your router with an Ethernet. I don’t believe their are many or any mesh systems which can create a mesh with different hardware from different manufacturers.

Many thanks for the clarification and after further research I can see that I'm going to need to wait for the new EasyMesh WiFi standard to be widely adopted (if indeed it ever is) before there is any chance of getting different manufacturers devices to work together.
