AP303 and TP-Link Range Extender

Dear Community,


I have 3 AP303 acting as one unit , displaying 1 SSID in a location.

But i have a room where the signal is too bad , with no Ethernet Connection to place another Aruba .


My question : can i add a Range extender ( TP-LINK AC2600 ) and add them to the Aruba Cluster so that they can act as one for the WIFI Connection.

Re: AP303 and TP-Link Range Extender

Range extenders typically use a different SSID to extend the wireless signal, and it will not be in sync the same way another AP on the IAP cluster / Controller group would be. Roaming would be a hard roam, if you were to get the SSID to be the same.
