    The extender does not automesh, but a workaround will be to connected consecutive extenders to each other i.e connect extender2 to extender1, extender3 to extender2, extender4 to extender3 and so on depending on how many extenders you need. If you have a better method you came make a pull request to my GitHub repository.
