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