Looking for a router/firewall solution plus wifi mesh

I am looking for a router/firewall solution plus wifi mesh. but don't want each wifi access point to have a wired connection running back to a managed switch. I am hoping for a solution;

Cable Modem <..> Router/firewall <..> first access point wired into the router <..> rest of the access points across the home office without any ethernet cabling, something similar to google Nest

 

Any solutions?

You can certainly do this.

You can use an MX as your router/gateway and connect your AP directly to it (either from a PoE port or with a PoE injector). 

You can then mesh other AP's from this one.

 

I suggest looking into the advantages and disadvantages of meshing however as there is throughput and airtime impact to going down this route.
