Mix ethernet and wireless?

I have a XR500, and an EX8000 connected using ethernet.

 

Can I add another EX8000 and have it connect to the existing EX8000 via wifi? I don't think it would reach the XR500.

 

Or does it not allow daisy chain and only spoke?

Hi @psykixx,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

1. For confirmation, are you using the existing EX8000 in access point mode?

2. Yes, the EX8000 does support daisy chain.

Hi,

 

Yes the EX8000 is in AP mode.

 

So to confirm, another EX8000 will connect to the existing EX8000 via wireless?

 

Cheers 🙂
