I had noticed this, but this with 2 points or M4 with 3 for £20 more? Annoyed that M4 was £99 last week

I would get the 3 for £20 more as one on its own is like £60+.

M4 regularly comes in at £99. Worth the money at that price. Haven't had any dropouts or problems since last few months of use. Using with VM and superhub in modem mode.

Not sure if the M5 is any better but tbh I'd still get the M4. 3 pack at 99 and no slow down in speed, only quicker and much more range.
The M4s are quite large though aren't they?
Not very discrete.
M4 is the newer replacement to M5 but the M5 is still a current product and has slightly better spec on the 2.4Ghz band.

Will you notice? I really doubt it - comes down to price and form - discs are easier to hide.
Thank you I ordered these yesterday for £20 more, just cancelled the order and re ordered at this lower price.

Just out of interest, why did you go for the M5s rather than the M4s?

Ac1300, and they have 4 antennas instead of 2

I am interested in purchasing these and was ready to do so for £128, or the google nest for 135 at ebuyer (which is an excellent price close to the lowest ita been at 129). Is the google wifi's arvantage that it has an extra band?
I've had 2 of these in my small 2 bedroom flat for about 8-9 months now. Vast improvement over the rubbish routers that all ISPs provide.

Main selling point for me was that it doesn't need to connect to your Google, Amazon, BT or any other account!
Do these work with the DP Link powerlines too?
how are these in comparison to powerline adapters?

... crap... you will get stronger Wi-Fi signal... which doesn't always translate in speed i have TP-Link TL-WPA8630PKIT V2 and the M4 trying to find best solution for me... still work in progress
you can use the M4 only as AP Mesh with BT... almost impossible to setup in router mode ( BT router doesn't have bridged mode). when you do you loos about ~10Mb from your speed.

with the powerline adp I get ~63Mb... my powerline adp are on the same circuit...



it really depends what youre after.

Sure, you can hook these up to your power line adapters using ethernet back-haul. This'll increase your mesh network speed especially with multiple users / devices connected at the same time.

These aren't really a replacement for powerline adapters. These are a replacement for standard wifi routers paired with wireless repeaters.

I bought the M5 for my parents house and thought I would splash out with the Google WiFi for my own house. I was extremely disappointed with the Google WiFi. TP-Link have great software, that you can do a lot more with and get a lot more feedback from. The google WiFi done the simple things bad, mainly webfiltering profiles, blacklisting devices, and prioritising devices. It's like the app was thrown together in 5 mins. Don't be fooled by looks, TP-link all the way. I have sent the google stuff back and will buy the M9's.

I've used three TP link AV500 wi fi powerlines for two years. My house is a 30 yr old 4 bed detached with the router located in the small bedroom upstairs used as an office. Specifically got powerlines to connect via ethernet cable to my TV and Amazon fire tv box. Hoped that the wi fi facility would boost wi fi speeds generally and eliminate a couple of poor reception areas. Most of the time things worked well but both cable and wi fi suffered from intermittent drop outs at inconvenient times. Sometimes i would test the wi fi speed and it was a meagre 1-2 Mbps. Lost count of the router reboots etc etc but eventually eliminated it and the internet provider as culprits, which only left the powerlines.

Two weeks ago bought the 3 pack M5's and the improvement is dramatic. Wi fi is fast, stable and seamless. As for streaming, so far no problems with buffering and drop outs. I'm no longer getting ear ache from Mrs topazz. Only used two of the three discs so far - one upstairs next to the router and one downstairs in the lounge and use the disc's two ethernet connections to connect to the tv and firetv box. Wi fi coverage is great right to the corners of the house. The integrated anti virus software is a welcome bonus (2yrs free subscription) and the TP Link software supplied is informative and easy to use. If your requirements are relatively simple like mine then a mesh system is the way to go IMO.
thanks right now i have connected my nas DNS-320 (using ethernet) to Asus EePC , EePC is using the WiFi connection and I have bridged the WiFi connection and Assu EePC LAN connection to access NAS.
Whenever i try to play videos from that NAS to my laptop or TV, there is lot of buffering.

i am in process of building a better rig but that project had to pause due to recent global events, so right now exploring what is the next better option to improve access/playback speed from content on NAS
Currys have now price matched this LINK.

It isn't a replacement as such, just a newer model at a cheaper price, hence the specs are slightly different.
I bought a triple pack M4 set a few weeks ago, and need some advice on back hauling over powerlines.

I have the nodes distributed over three floors. The main node connected to the modem (AP mode) on the middle floor. I currently have the main node connected to a powerline to the ground floor node, the top floor is connected wirelessly.

I'm considering buying another powerline module for the top floor.

I'm getting confused with the whole star and daisy chain configuration. Does this setup sound correct?

Should only the top floor and ground (two slaves) be connected over powerline?

Only my opinion.
Looking at the above pic from the TP-Link website the ethernet backhauls are from say middle floor where the router is to the ground floor, and also between the middle floor and the top floor.
Using Powerlines would be exactly the same, so you would put another Powerline link between the middle floor and the top floor instead of them connecting wirelessly.

Thanks BulldogNo1. This is what I thought. The description of star and daisy chain on TP links site got me doubting myself.
