Creating a MESH Network with AC1900 and R6300

I have a R6300 Router and two AC1900 extenders.  Can I create a MESH network with these devices?

Hi @Fredbird82,

 

As it stands, the EX7000 is not among the models that support the mesh feature.

Hi @Fredbird82,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

1. What is the model number of your extender?

2. If you are using the EX6400, you may refer to the links below:

I guess I’m perplexed by the question of the model number of my routers. I thought I provided it in my original question. Is it EX7000? If not, please let me know how to find it.

I don’t see the “One WiFi” feature under Settings/Wireless. I ran Smart Setup and didn’t see it offered.
