Hi, I am looking to get the Arlo ultra with 2 cameras plus a doorbell. I use a TP link mesh system as the WiFi is terrible. The TP link does have ethernet ports on all its nodes, would I be able to plug the Arlo base unit into a node instead of the router (which is in modem mode). The distance from my router to the cameral will be quite big but I do have a mesh node that is quite close. Thanks

No because the Arlo Ultra cameras use the Smart Hubs WiFi only. Not any of the home WiFi.

Hi mrsg83, you can plug your Smart Hub into one of the TP link's.  I do the same but with a Netgear Nighthawk model.

Thankyou, do you find it effects WiFi speed from the node?
