NightHawk D7000 modem router & Mesh extender

I am thinking of adding a NightHawk Mesh unit to our network and wondered how a 3 band unit would work with a 2 band router/modem

Hello James_m if you are talking about our Mesh extenders then the 3rd band is a dedicated backhaul to make a connection to the router you would only have 2 bands to connect your devices to.

Many thanks for the reply.

Does that mean that the router would only have one band available to support wifi or would all wifi be through the extender only?

no the router would work like normal the dedicated band on the extender gives it a better connection and helps it get more speed.
