I have the Smart Modem Gen 2... with FTC NBN to come shortly.
I'm contemplating getting one (maybe two) of the very recently released Telstra Smart Wi-Fi™ Booster Gen 2 - but not sure if I can set it up as needed.
The modem is upstairs and provides good wifi for the whole floor. But I have poor penetration of the wifi downstairs.
I would like to have one Gen 2 booster downstairs with a permanent ethernet connection to my modem. If this can be done, I may place a second booster at the other end of the downstairs floor - where it would most likely make its own connection to the other booster (which would be much closer than the upstairs modem).
In short... can a Gen 2 booster operate while permanently connected to the modem by ethernet, while the modem is also broadcasting on the same mesh wifi SID?
