I have a Netgear CM1100 and Nighthawk RAX75. Is there a compatible mesh system?

Is there a good mesh system compatible with my router? I don't want to buy another router to get the mesh? 

Is there a less expensive option too as Nighthawk mesh is so expensive.

Any of them will work. but if if you're wanting ax then the EAX15, EAX20, EAX80 are all compatible. 

Otherwise I usually recommend the triband EX7500, EX7700, EX8000 line.

Depending on how many satellites you need, there are mesh extenders. 
I don't usually recommend using more than 1 extender but you can do it. 

If you do, then I recommend a star configuration setup and not daisy chained. 

Daisy: router---->extender----->extender

Star: Extender<-------router------->extender

Which mesh extenders work with my set up? Netgear has one that is $379.00 which is quite expensive. Had I known when I bought this, I would have gotten the Nighthawk mesh with the router all in one. Same dollars. Now I am piece mealing together it seems.
