XFI Pods - RJ45 ethernet port - can I connect 2 pods together via hard wire cable?
Has anyone tried to connect 2 xFi pods together using an ethernet cable? Would it work?
I do not mean connecting either pod to the main router using an ethernet cable (documentation states this is not supported), but one pod to another pod, and then the pod(s) would connect to the main router using WiFi.
router<----(wireless)----Pod--->ethernet cable--->Pod---(wireless)---> router
I happen to have an RJ45 run between 2 rooms in my home right where the 2 pods sit...and one of the 2 pods gets almost zero connectivity to the main router, so if I can connect the two over a wired ethernet connection, I'm hoping it may improve the wireless in that room. Since the wire is already in place, it might make sense if it's a supported configuration.
The devices would need to support some sort of routing or bridging protocol, to allow the pods to take the best route back to the gateway.
