Connect to what router?

 

You want to wire these repeaters as Access Points to a GS308EP switch?

 

Why did you pick network managed devices from Netgear's business range? From messages that appear here, they don't always sit nicely in domestic environments.

 

A more common choice would be a Mesh system that can create a seamless WiFi network.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

Re: WAX620

The switch will connect to a Linksys EA8500 router (for now).

You want to wire these repeaters as Access Points to a GS308EP switch?  That is my thinking unless there is a problem with this config.

Why did you pick network managed devices from Netgear's business range?  I am seeking a rugged, industrial grade configuration.  I like the coverage and range of the WAX devices.  All APs will be installed with hardwire ethernet cable back to the switch.  I am working to hardwire all my "fixed" devices....TVs, printers, LAN storage, pool control, etc to reduce the wifi load.

I have studied the mesh network offerings promoted for home applications.  They seem priced high to me and the WAX devices seems like a stronger, more cost effective solution.
