Instructions for installing Wifi Mesh on Tp-Link EAP devices

Hi everyone, today I will share with you how to install Wifi Mesh and add your TP-Link EAP series AP device Cloud Omada completely free from TP-Link company. Here I use Models EAP245 – EAP225 – EAP223, EAP245 devices I power and network signal, and 2 EAP225 – EAP223 devices I only power

1.What is Cloud Omada Free?

Cloud Omada is a platform that integrates network devices including APs, Switches, and Routers. Provides 100% centralized cloud management, to create a highly scalable network—all controlled from a single interface.

2. What is Wifi Mesh?

Wi-Fi Mesh is a whole-house Wi-Fi system designed to eliminate Wi-Fi “dead spots” and provide seamless coverage throughout your home.
Mesh systems give the devices on your network higher speeds, greater coverage, and more reliable connections. Compared to traditional routers that only broadcast Wi-Fi from one base station, Wi-Fi Mesh systems have multiple access points.
When a device connects to a modem, it becomes the primary device. Other devices (called “buttons”) will pick up and rebroadcast the router’s signal. As a result, you’ll have a Wi-Fi network with strong signal strength wherever you are.

3. Install Wifi Mesh
