Curious Question?

This is a curious questions that is more aimed to tech people. Would it be possible to connect a ax mesh extender to a ac powered router such as XR500? Both of course would be by the same company and supports mesh capabilities? I personally thing the XR500 would be a bottleneck for speeds possibly but what if it was directly connected up to the modem? Also does wifi 6 provide any benefits to devices that run on wifi 5?

I personally thing the XR500 would be a bottleneck for speeds possibly---You'd be right in that it's AC speeds would be the bottleneck. I'd probably go with a triband AC extender as you'd probably see better speeds/lower latencies versus using a dual band AX extender but what if it was directly connected up to the modem?---if what was connected directly to the modem? The ethernet? That's not going to be the bottleneck.It'll be the wireless the extenders use. Also does wifi 6 provide any benefits to devices that run on wifi 5?----there's some benefits but its mostly in the concurrent usage scenario.
