If there are over two repeater APs connect the one root AP or the two hops of WDS link in your scenario, you can add the uplink AP's mac address manually to avoid repeater AP connect to the wrong AP. 

Scenario 1: Two repeater APs connect to the one root AP


Scenario 2: Two hops of WDS link



Access the uplink AP and check the WDS downlink status on the dashboard.

Copy the MAC address.


Access the repeater and paste the uplink AP's MAC address. The ZyMESH will link up.
