AX1800 with AX5400 Router

IS THE AX1800 COMPATIBLE AS A SATELLITE UNIT WITH A AX5400 ROUTER? In other words, if I purchase an AX5400 router, can I use an AX1800 or a pair of AX1800 extenders with it?

Fyi, the AX1800 and AX5400 are speeds, not models. 

So its tough to give you specific answers because there's nighthawk devices, orbi devices, etc. 

Some do/don't mesh. 

What actual router are you looking at and what are you looking at for extenders/satellites?

Sorry about that. I'm looking at the Nighthawk 6-Stream WiFi 6 (XR1000) and the Nighthawk Dual-Band WiFi 6 (MS60).

 

Will the MS60 function as a mesh extender with the XR1000?

No. the MR60 series is a mesh series while the XR1000 is not. 

You can add the MR60 to the XR1000 as an access point but it won't function as a mesh. 

or you could go with a mesh extender like the EAX80/20 if you wanted to keep in AX compatible. 
I've used an EX8000 with my RAX200/CAX80 and it worked fine as well.
