Connect two MK6W mesh systems together


Connect two MK6W mesh systems together

I bought two MK6W (MR60 router with two MS60 satellites) to cover my first and second floors with the best wifi I can provide.  My question is, how do I connect both of them to have just one network for my house without creating two SSID's?

Re: Connect two MK6W mesh systems together

You MRs can only operate as the host router or in AP Mode. You can use the other MS with the 1st MK system, however one of the MRs can't be used OR you can use it in AP Mode and create a 2nd SSID name. Channels should be far appart between the two systems.
