Subject: Help Needed: Connecting Xiaomi AX3000 Nodes Properly for Optimal Wi-Fi Coverage


Jul 21, 2023
Dear Xiaomi Blog Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to seek some assistance regarding my Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh Wi-Fi setup. I recently purchased 2 packs of the Xiaomi AX3000 and an additional individual AX3000 router to improve the Wi-Fi coverage in my home.

Here's a brief overview of my setup:

1. Primary Node (Parent Node): I have successfully set up the first Xiaomi AX3000 router as the primary node.

2. Secondary Node: I have also configured the second AX3000 router as a secondary node, connected to the primary node via a LAN cable.

3. Third Node: My third AX3000 router is intended to be the third node, but I'm facing difficulties connecting it properly because it is connecting to the primary node (parent node).

The Problem:

Currently, my third node (AX3000) is connecting directly to the primary node (first one) instead of connecting to the second node. This is causing a weaker signal in the other rooms, as the third node is relying on the internet from the primary node.

What I've Tried:

1. Firmware Update: I have made sure that the firmware on all three nodes is up to date.

2. Wi-Fi Optimization: I've also utilized the Wi-Fi optimization feature to improve the overall performance.

However, despite these efforts, I am unable to establish a stable connection between the second and third nodes. I am seeking guidance on how to ensure that the third node connects properly to the second node while both maintain their respective connections with the first node.

I am open to any suggestions or step-by-step instructions that can help me resolve this issue.

Thank you all in advance for your valuable assistance and expertise. Your insights and recommendations will be highly appreciated.

Did anyone find out how to connect satelite to another satelite (not to main router)?

Boa tarde,

Tenho o mesmo problema aqui, tenho 4 AX3000 e todos os nós se conectam no satélite.
Não cria uma malha propriamente dita :(
