Is it possible to set up R700 as master in a Mesh using the ethernet backhaul with MK62?

Greatings from Brazil,

 

  I have a R7000 and I need to extend my wifi. Is it possible to set it up as master in a Mesh configuration with MK62 using the ethernet Backhaul? How can that be set up? r7000 cable to the "MK62 router" and another cable from R7000 to the MK62 "satellite"?
  How about the wifi? Would the wifi-6 work since r7000 is AC or would the whole wi-fi be limited to AC? 

Thanks 
Gilson

the right model is R7000 (R seven thousand -> https://www.netgear.com/home/wifi/routers/r7000/)

Would it integrate to the system? No.

could it be made to function in addition to the system? Sure.

I'd connect it and go:

R7000----->MR60 (in access point mode)------>satellites

connect the satellites either wired or wireless to the MR60

 

I'd also set the r7000 with a different ssid and make sure the wireless channels aren't on the same channel between MR60-r7000 to prevent interference

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Would this (r7000 cable to the "MK62 router" and another cable from R7000 to the MK62 "satellite") work or does it need to be a cable from R7000 to MK60 and then from there to the satellite? 

How about the wifi? Would the wifi-6 work since r7000 is AC or would the whole wi-fi be limited to AC?

You'd connect the satellite to the MR60 either wired/wireless. Not to the R7000. 

The MK60 system would be its own system. seperate from the R7000
