Whole Home Wifi

Go to solution

A bit of basic advice if possible please.... I currently have my BT router on Cat6 cable to POE switchgear distributing to 3 access points around the house for an ad-hoc network.  I would like to install BT whole home for its user friendly attributes.  Can I replace my existing AP's for the whole home and power them using the Cat6 POE? Would it work as intended by having each new whole home access point disc  connecting back to the switchgear which then connects back to the router?

Hi,

Unfortunately the Whole Home Wi-Fi discs cannot be powered by PoE and you would need to use the included power supply.

You can however connect multiple discs by Ethernet via the switch. Depending on which model of WHW you have, you can connect the switch to your router or with Premium you need to connect it to the primary disc.
