    I'm thinking of purchasing Lyras but I wonder how they work with NAS devices. Most NAS devices support only ethernet connection, not WiFi, and the NAS device tends to be connected to the WiFi device. With a Lyra Mesh there are 3 or more WiFi devices. Does the NAS need to be connected to the...

    RT-AC86U + Lyra

    Hi, I'd like to use my RT-AC86U as central router, with 2 or 3 Lyra's as satellite stations (mainly for aesthetic reasons).
