    Can I route the connection between Amplifi base stations through a switch?

    My network is wired with all cable runs terminating at the central switch. I could patch together a few to run from the main (router) Amplifi out to the wired remote Amplifi base station and back to the switch, but that would be inconvenient and waste a bunch of perfectly good cable drops.

    According to the support person I just chatted with: yes, you can connect the main and backhaul routers through a switch.

    So what about between three Amplifi routers?!? E.g. DSL -> Amplifi (groundlevel) -> Amplifi (2nd level) and Amplifi in the cellar?!?

    What is the power usage ap vs antenna?!?

    Three or more works the way you would expect. Traffic from the AmpliFi in the cellar will take two hops; first to the backbone router and then to the main router. I cannot speak to the power usage.

    Ok - it seems like there is only power usage for the router - 11 watt but not for the mesh antenna.... nor on the website nor at the various distribuators
    But thanks for the answer :-)

    When will ethernet backbone speeds not suffer a ~50% drop?
