Router ethernet ports when Mesh system in use

Hi Folks,

I am about to purchase a mesh system (maybe BT or Deco M5)

When the mesh system primary device is connected via an ethernet port to the Hub 1, can the other ports still be used by devices e.g. my NAS drive and still be accessed via the mesh Wi-Fi, or will I have to use a switch on one of the other hubs (discs).

Cheers

Ken

@kenjr  Welcome to the forum.

Providing the mesh system is connected to the hub in Access Point mode (this is the only mode supported by the BT system) you should have no problems using the hub LAN ports without needing to tweek any settings.
