Setup Question: 2 Routers connecting via Ethernet Wired Backhaul


  • Hi,
    just considering exchanging two airport extreme base stations with an amplifi hd setup. not sure if my understanding is correct: we currently have both airports connected via gbit switch, and added two wired devices to them. would this here: https://help.amplifi.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006826048-Ethernet-Wired-Backhaul-How-To work with only one network cable, like amplifi router <-> gbit switch <-> amplifi router and enabling the wired backhaul functionality - or would a second cable be nescessary? the routing functionality would not be needed, this is handled by a sophos xg

    did anyone already move from airport extreme to this setup? how about signal quality, speed and the automatic handover when moving around the house?
