Is it possible to run the Ethernet cable to the hub instead of the wifi disc?
The discs form a mesh and I suspect they don't play nicely with another wifi device that doesn't form part of the mesh being connected to them.
Hi thanks for the reply its much appreciated..
so the router is in another location and the cabling has already been put into the ground and run down to the gates not where the main hub is.
so let me explain the whole set up..
there is the main router in the house..
there is an ethernet cable run underground to the summer house from the main house / router
so from main hub in house to a secondary hub in summerhouse via ethernet then there is this bt wifi dish in summer house that extends the wifi then the plan was ethernet off of same bt wifi dish in summerhouse down to gates to the netgesr to send out wifi st gates for security cameras and so on..
in the main house where the main hub is located there is another bt wifi dish that extends the wifi down the main house and into the garage where off the back of that bt wifi dish there is an ethernet cable that then runs over to the barn and into a tp link router that then send out wifi in the barn.
so how can one of these bt wifi dishes work with having a tp link router plugged in and working correctly but then the other bt wifi dish in the summer house that we are connecting this netgear device to via ethernet is shutting the net off on the bt wifi dish (light going red) no internet access
it confuses me that the netgear is conflicting when in access-point mode via ethernet in the summer house when in the other end of the main house the tp link router is working fine being connected to a different bt wifi dish in the same way that im trying to get this netgear one to connect and work.
Also i will try and plug it into the router direct to see if it will work as i need but the end result is this netgear wifi extender can not stay in the main hub as the wiring is not there for it to use as planned
