      Q 3: How many nova units can be used together to establish a network?
      A 3: A mesh network system can be composed of up to 10 nova units. Considering network stability, we recommend a maximum of 6 nova units.

    I'm having trouble understanding how this needs to be set up.

    I have FTTP so an NBN box in my house, which I have connected to a modem(?) which has ethernet running out of it to my computer.

    The house has 4 ethernet ports in the 2 bedrooms and the living room, does this mean that I can have these 2 Tenda units connected via the wall outlets (which are connected to my modem) or does one of these need to act as a modem?

    Sorry if this is confusing but I am a bit confused myself.

      My setup is: NBN box > Tenda unit (instead of modem) > wirelessly connected to other Tenda units

      Each unit has 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports per mesh point;WAN and LAN on primary (whatever is connected to the NBN box); mesh point both act as LAN ports on additional mesh points.

      I've never tried wired connection between nodes

      You should be able to create a mesh network with these units in either wired, wireless, or a combination of both.
      Hopefully this post gives you a better understanding of how it can be configured.

    Hey There, just wanted to have a feedback on these. Thinking of buying. Currently I just have a basic WiFi Router but keen to expand connectivity and speed.

      night and day difference compared to your basic router. you'll get good signal with significantly less drop in speed between walls.
      it's still a basic wifi mesh though. can only be configured via an app instead of a webpage and not much extra features. it does have some parental control where you can add devices to a group and that group can only have internet in certain times of the day/s

    I got the 3 pack MW3 connected using ethernet backhaul and it has met way beyond my expectations. All across at every corner of my house I get an Excellent Wi-Fi strength and an amazing speed of minimum 80 Mbps on a 100/20 plan.
    MW6 might give you much better results.
