Can I mesh only RT2600ac Synology routers



Can I mesh only RT2600ac Synology routers instead of mixing with MR2200ac? I have big area to cover.


Yes, new SRM update came out with extra functions added – including mesh support. If you have much bigger area to cover, you may consider mashing together RT2600ac. Synology mesh system is more attractive because of its back-haul functionality- which will allow uninterrupted streaming even with access point switching in the background.

Version: 1.2-7742

  1. Added support for Mesh Wi-Fi on RT2600ac and MR2200ac.
  2. Added support for Mesh Wi-Fi system in AP mode on RT2600ac and MR2200ac.


This is the are you can cover with Synology routers:


RT2600ac  can cover 3,000 ft2 / 279 m2 84 ping — good for 2-3 bedroom house


MR2200ac can cover 2,000 ft2 / 185 m2 / 56 ping — good for 3-4 bedroom house

One thought on “Can I mesh only RT2600ac Synology routers

  1. Synology appears to have redacted the previous statement above and doesn’t mention the rt2600ac as supporting mesh.

    “ Added support for Mesh Wi-Fi on RT2600ac and MR2200ac.”

    Under Version: 1.2-7742 from https://www.synology.com/en-us/releaseNote/SRM?model=RT2600ac

    “ Added support for Mesh Wi-Fi system on MR2200ac in router mode and AP mode.”

    Can anyone confirm that a second rt2600ac can indeed be used as a second mesh unit?
