I get a blazing fast signal upstairs, but downstairs it is weak. Is there a mesh router I can use with my new NOK 5G21?

Yes you can. You have two options - AP or DHCP. In access point mode your mesh router is a passthrough to your Nokia gateway. If you enable DHCP you get to use your mesh with all it’s router features, but you will have two DHCP layers including your Nokia. This is called “double NAT” and some apps have problems.

In either case, it is recommended you turn all wifi SSID off on your Nokia so it can run cooler.
