Does anyone know if you can use those old school Ethernet over Power devices (I think they called Powerline adapters) to backhaul using ethernet? I don't see any options in my app for M9 Plus to do ethernet backhaul when they are connected using powerline adapters.
Either your adapters are not working properly, or the speeds through them are so low that the units are rejecting the connection. POE adapters are usually not that great for speeds.

Outside of that, yes it should work, as it acts like a giant cable.

Can I add my current tp link mesh units as an add on to this unit so I can expand my wifi even further. Or do I have to stick with just this unit and toss my old one?
You can defiantly add on, I forgot the exact number but I believe they said 10 units is the max don't quote me on that, other manufactures have 6 as a max. You just need to make sure you put the most powerful unit as your main node/router attached to the modem.

Help - would this work in a small outbuilding (16 x 12) that would be about 30 feet from the main router in the house? Our service provider suggested running a Cat6 cable but if this would cover that distance it would certainly be much easier. Thoughts?

Right, that's why I specifically said for the 3 unit model. Comparing a single point vs a 3 point system isn't the same thing and would make less sense. Smilie
agreed

Yes, absolutely. The access points dont care as long as they get an ethernet source, just plug the ethernet cable in and the deco switches automatically to wired backhaul. Just be aware sometimes powerline ethernet get lousy connection speeds. Make sure you get the latest standard powerline units .
Thank you sir ! I have one that is 600mbps. I will test it first using a wired connection to a PC to see what kind of speeds it is getting.

Deco units can be combined. But there are some nuances. I think the m5 dual bands have to be the edge nodes of the mesh and not the source ones (because the m5 are only dual band)
Yeah I would expect this unit to be the source/primary unit and the older mesh to be the edge/last units. The one I have now is a three unit mesh that works well. But there are still dead spots in the house. So I figured I could use this as the main unit and then use my current ones to help reach the Arlo cams by moving the Arlo hub to the further mesh unit as an Ethernet access point.

Plenty of people here talking about it and how it's affecting them.
Interesting. In that thread someone posts a work around.

Prob best to avoid if you cant just let the Deco be the main router (I understand in Access Point mode you lose some of the mesh features)

This will only affect people who are using them in AP mode, so that means a small percentage will have any likelihood of seeing it as most are using it in a standard mesh.

But yeah a year old bug still not fixed in firmware is kind of crappy, first I am hearing of it though from all the multiple threads I been in on TP-Link products, so its not that common.

This is dual band, not tri band like the Deco M9.

If you are using a wired backhaul, this is probably a better choice.

But if you are using a WiFi backhaul (which is what most people do), I'd stick with the M9.
I'm a little new to this term - how do I know if I'm used a wired or WiFi Backhaul?

Ya, that's not great as that's likely old. Try the pair of 600mbps and see how much bandwidth you get between the two locations. You can upgrade to newer standard AV2 ones for about $75 a pair

Can someone explain in simple terms what wired backhaul many folks are referring to?
Wired backhaul is when the units are connected together with ethernet cables. (A newer house is often wired with ethernet cables in the walls to allow wired connections without visible cables) I believe the way most mesh systems work is when the units are connected together wireless it 'uses up' one of the bands. So if you have a way to set up a wired backhaul dual band mesh system would be sufficient. But if setting up wireless, a triband mesh system would be much better.

Bought this some time back for 250 at costco. one of the units was acting weird and not giving good speeds (I checked by swapping). Saw this and bought it for 230!
going to return the other one.
btw, i have recently tried google wifi ($229), eero ($170), orbi ($440) and this deco has best performance IF you use wired backhaul.
eero wants $$$ for parental controls
orbi has NO parental controls
google wifi is 1/3rd the speed of deco but has free parental controls
deco has free parental controls
So if you have wired backhaul and want parental controls, this is perfect (if not defective, so buy 2!)
wired backhaul = connecting the remote units using ethernet.
One thing that I didnt like was the fact that this system was released in june 2020 and the firmware is still the original with zero updates. Seems like either tplink makes really great firmware or are very slow at firmware updates.
While google does have parental controls they pale in comparison to the tplink. However, I use Google as the DecoM9+ I tried was always dropping my Google home devices. and to be clear I get very fast speeds on my Google.

Definitely go with a tri-band system like the M9 over any dual band mesh (* if youre not using a wired backhaul). Ultimately you just have to try and see how well they perform in your enviroment. Ethernet connections are always best otherwise.

I just wired my stuff again, and im amazed how much more snappy (responsive) all my devices are now compared to when on wifi.
