Cheers alloyd. I also posted just after you. I did check but yours appeared while I was busy typing it up. Mine was for BT WHOLE WiFi though, don't know if your while wifi is faster ;)

I used click and collect for free delivery to local Ryman and went via topcashback which has tracked at £5.95. There is a code for freedel50 but not sure if it stacks

Have some hotness

Really tempting at this price. Hot

Forgetting price and number of dishes(?), does anyone know which is better - google wifi for this?
This is listed as AC2400 whereas googles is AC1200?

Is this not just the usual box plus two repeaters, nicely packaged. If so it is very expensive for what it is. If not what else does it do?

no, no, no,

completely different. for example, they all have the same ssid and you get automatically assigned the mesh with the strongest signal to where you are.

I've yet to see a bad review with the biggest complaint saying £299 is expensive (so it's nearly half price here)

Would this be better than an ac router?
I am having issues streaming 4k videos from my phone to my TV. [Too much buffering]
Signal strength is fine. Just can't handle the throughput. I currently have Asus N66u connected to BT home hub

Good price for this - the reviews look good too.

This is An AC access point so if you still have your issue when strong signal I suggest the issue is with your router or internet connection. Could be the wireless chip in your TV may only be n rather than ac.

Can you not just use your free router from your line provider and buy a couple of repeaters?
#12
Damn, OOS... :(

The routing function is different to these, they act as wireless access points, the important part is the seamless transfer, setting the SSID to be the same will only help if the device will automatically switch, the theory with having it in a kit and therefore mesh (true or own version) is that is handled by the access points, I always suggest it is better to have a separate router and access point but the issue up until now has been this has generally meant you required good understanding of enterprise networks and the associated CLI, with this kit you get the features but the easier home user friendly UI.

anyone with this know if they can run off PoE?

No but they would not be as they are wirelessly connected to the primary AP so the others do not need cat to connect them back to the router/ switch
#19
I bought these off amazon for 197 , ill have to send em back now and get this.

Will this work on virgin media, or bt only?

yes it will work with ISPs as you use your existing router, presume in your case super hub, you should disable the wireless on that though.

thanks OP for all the advice given...will probably stick with my 3 wired PoE APs and just remember to switch between them as I wander around!

Good Call, in theory these are basically 3 AP's but just linked, I strongly recommend the Ubiquiti AP's for value for money, that side of things are easy just keep your existing router as the Edgerouter Lite is not point and click.
#25
Could anyone shed some light on these please. As they are access points effectively, are things like VPN and access control handled by the existing router still?
