NWA50AX as an Extender only

Options

Hi,

I have a NWA50AX managed via Nebula. 

I need to have an access point (location is within an outdoor office where I do not have a LAN cable.

Is it possible to use the NWA50AX in the hut acting as a range extender of my Zyxel Broadband router.

    Hi @Fuisdale2

    Currently, there isn't a router that's compatible with the NWA50AX's Smart Mesh technology. However, we're excited to announce that a new router supporting Smart Mesh is coming, expected to launch in Q2 of 2024.

    Stay tuned for updates on this upcoming product :)

    Hello @Fuisdale2

    Could you share the model of your Zyxel Broadband router? Also, are you looking to connect the NWA50AX to it wirelessly using Mesh functionality?

    Hi @Fuisdale2

    The DX3301-T0 uses MPro Mesh technology, while the NWA50AX operates with Smart Mesh, which unfortunately aren't compatible. This means setting up a Mesh network between these two specific devices isn't recommended.

    To ensure seamless mesh compatibility with the NWA50AX, you might want to look into other models within our Access Point series.

    Do Zyxel do a Smart Mesh WIFI router if I decide to replace my DX3301-T0 .
