Was dearer yesterday cheers pal
anyone wanting to buy this can save a few more ££ from amazon deal of the day amazon.co.uk/Ten…_NA


would much rather use amazon
Fab, thanks. Been eyeing a mesh network at that £74 worth the gamble! Shame it's not supplied by Amazon (only fulfilled), still safer imho
Ordered from amazon. Looking to expand my network due to having new extension. Sonos is dropping more and more. Hopefully resolve the issues. Thanks
Do these need to each be plugged into account Ethernet cable, or do they just relay each others signal?
So how does this compare to things like Google WiFi which are more than 3x the price? What's the difference?

They relay, obviously one of them need to be connected to a modem/router.

One bonus is that each unit has a Ethernet port so that you can connect a wired device to.
Bought one of these the other week. It's been excellent so far
How do these compare to bt whole home WiFi?
The very small number of reviews on Amazon raises a few flags for me
Is this genuinely mesh? Or just repeaters in reality?

They've been selling on Amazon since only the last few months (introduced in May2018).

Cheers, ordered some, will see what they are like
I have these and they are excellent. Genuine mesh WiFi rather than repeaters. App is good too, allows me to use a custom DNS server for all connected devices, which is something my broadband provider's router doesn't offer.
I have these as well. Really good.

People will read dual and Tri band to do with mesh networks. The only benefit of Tri band is if you have a lot of devices connected as it gives more WiFi bandwidth effectively on 5Ghz connections, but realistically your internet connection will be the slow point. And 99% of homes have no where near alot of devices.

Simple to setup, you only setup one node connected to the router, other two auto connect to that, can take two devices via the two Ethernet ports on them.

I did WiFi analyst on it and improved my WiFi really well. Couldnt rate it higher for the money to be honest

I guess I can use a powerline plug on the other end of my flat and plug 1 of these into the ethernet cable there, so the router covers one half of the flat and the node the other?

Then give 2 to my parents giving them greater coverage in their house?

You could but you'd have two access points effectively to one network and devices might not actually switch from one to another automatically when a signal is weak. (this was my main issue and hence switching to this mesh setup)

That said i found the signal strong from these nodes and reached much further than my router.

Also just to add for people, if you have an internet connection of more than 100mb then this wifi mesh probably isn't for you as its at that point it will limit your speed. (the LAN ports are 100mb)

Bought yesterday on Amazon for only £73 . . Deleted my Amazon deal without any reason. Seems if it is cheaper you can't post it here.

The mw6 version is great too for bigger houses. Around 150

Was the Amazon deal just for one day?

I tried posting it few weeks back when was £86. Reason for deletion I was told is low seller feedback, even if being fulfilled by Amazon!

So basically any new companies decideding to list on Amazon and do welcome deals we can't list on here...to protect the members apparently.
I have the BT ones and I'm wondering, if I bought these could I plug these into my router as well? Meaning I'd have BT from one port and these in another port.

Will this work? TIA
Mine arrived today, absolutely superb for the money. Full speed broadband in the whole house! Can't recommend highly enough
These are rubbish. I sent mine back. I paid 180 at the time. There’s a reason they’re priced this low.

Edit, I had an MW6. In that case I’d hate to see what this lower model is like.

If you want a decent mesh network get the AmpliFi HD.

Please does anyone know the range of these as we have a stpidly long extension that struggles with wifi as the router is about 40 metres away through several walls.

Thanks

Arrived next day. Easy to install the first cube and the others are plug and play. Tenda app required for installation. Sonos works fine as it’s working from a dedicated network. Normally they don’t work well with extenders so having their own network works fine. Plug Play Forget.

Just put all 3 units in a sequential line. Base 15m to Module1 15m to Module2. Should be more than enough. Then experiment moving module1 from the base to maybe 20m and remove Module2.
