Just before leaving the UK I purchased a WiFi mesh set up for our house in NZ and it arrived with the movers last week.
Sooooo much better than using an extender.
Used to have to switch networks between lounge and bedroom with devices automatically deciding to use a stronger (but slower) 2.4 over the 5. Just irritating to have to manually change.
Now with only two mesh units the whole property runs on a strong fast 5 subnet with devices automatically moving between units as needed.
Really recommend if you have dead spots or are setting up smart house stuff like lights/plugs/locks etc
Had to solve the puzzle of getting Sonos controllers working but worked out that as Sonos creates its own subnet I needed to have either one of each connected by Ethernet or cable one Sonos speaker direct to a mesh unit. Apart from that it’s brilliant and cheaper than a high powered router.
What brand did you go for. I’m using an extender at the moment, but it’s creaking under the weight of all the devices we use.
Got just this two pack to try and it is ample for my needs. Our house has a bit of an l shape and I am jumping across the angle. I didn’t know if that plan would work so went for the deco as they have plenty of different repeaters that all work together. If I needed more I could have just ordered whatever was best price back here and added it on.
Apparently they “copy” the concept that companies like Sonos came up with whereby every unit in the subnet talks to each other.
