Thanks, apur32. Been looking for a mesh system without spending to much and these are well reviewed for basic ones.

These were £90+, so at £69.99 Currys have a great price and eBuyer via eBay are even cheaper. What's not to like?

Just saying
If you have a larger property you might want to consider the 4 pack available from Box for £78.99. There have been a couple of posts for this offer e.g. click here

Do these work well for those with thick walls? Moving into a new victorian place shortly and walls are dense with high ceilings. Never had a mesh system so unsure how well they work. Tia.
Decent price but personally found Tenda stuff terrible
I have installed 2 sets one at home and another at the bowls club both work great
Something to be aware of - they might be 1200Mbps between each other and other wifi devices, they only use a 100Mbps connection to your router/switch so you will be limited by that

I have been pleasantly surprised by the MW3 system. Obviously it is difficult to predict how they will perform in a particular setting but if there there is a region with particularly poor wifi signal, you have the option to connect a pair of MW3s using an ethernet cable.
Have these 3 months and have transformed my crappy Vodafone broadband. Get the same speed all round the house as the devices wired to Ethernet cables.

Or 4 units for £83.99 on Amazon Prime !
Excellent
These are brilliant.
I have this set already around my 3 bed semi detached, reaches everywhere.
I placed one by the back door, I have a large garden and we can sit in the summerhouse located at the back, now with full wifi and quick speeds too.
Remember to turn off your routers wifi so it does not interfere with each other.

Anyone able to advise..I'm looking for better WiFi upstairs. We already have a wired switch there. Would it be possible to use this, or another device that we could plug an ethernet cable into and then rebroadcast it as a WiFi signal, or would then result in two separate WiFi networks in the house? Is the best way to use this or similar system to just create a mesh that acts like a single WiFi network? How does this setup compare with something like a NETGEAR Wi-Fi Mesh Range Extender EX7700? Thanks
Got a set of 3 of these which I paid £65 for I think, so good deal.

They have almost eradicated the dropouts we were getting from our router being so far away from things. The app is easy to use (poorly translated in some sub-menus), and there is no dropout from switching between the nodes, which I was experiencing with traditional wifi extenders.

Eventually the aim is to have the main 3 of these linked with CAT5 and then add wireless nodes to supplement if required.
Hi. I'm new to mesh systems. I have plusnet broadband which delivers a top speed of around 70mb/s (according to ookla speed test). However on the top floor (3 storey house) I get around 30mb/s. Would this system allow for the top speed of around 70 to be reached on the top floor (theoretically)?

Only asking because I've read that this isn't the fastest mesh system. But would it be okay for the speeds I get in my home?

Work pretty well, but I had to put one in every room. I got 3 from currys last year and added 3 ones from China about 4/5 months ago. With 6 in the house I have solid connection everywhere, but I struggled with just 3.
Same here, Last week I bought TP-Link AC1750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender, Broadband/Wi-Fi Extender, Wi-Fi Booster/Hotspot with 1 Gigabit Port and 3 External Antennas. But after reading this post I think I need Tenda MW5, Currys selling for £89.99

This would replace your existing router. I have the Netgear EX7700 and can highly recommend it. It’s superb. And currently reduced to £89.99 on Amazon.

Operationally you could buy this, get rid of your existing router (or switch to modem mode if using Virgin hub or similar). Or buy the 7700, run the setup wizard and be done with it. The 7700 acts seamlessly as a mesh extender, so gives the same result. Single network, no nonsense.

5ghz is poor at going through solid stone walls in general. however it can pass through ceilings with minimal signal loss so you may get good results having boxes in line of sight of each other on the ground floor, the putting another on the floor above it.
I use Sonos loads and had problems with different devices on different WiFi repeaters before has anyone used these combined with Sonos and had no problems controlling using phone apps?

Thanks for the help - Virgin is already in modem mode, I've got a AC5300 as the router which ideally I'd want to keep - spent a lot of money on it. So I guess this one is out the question. But the Netgear one, I'd just use it as a repeater/extender with the Asus all under one SSID right? Yeah, I've been watching the price of the 7700 and it's gone down to £90 since I first saw it for £95 - plus an extra 10% for a Prime Student so leaning towards that but just want to make sure it'll do what I want first.

I have this mesh system connected to my fibre router (with the wifi turned off).
The Tenda app sets it all up very easy for you, you then just have one SSID and connect everything through that, I would imagine you would just connect Sonos to the new mesh system pretty easily.
I have been trying to look up the specs on these to find out what speed the ethernet ports are on these but can't seem to find anything on the Tenda site. Does anyone who has these know if they are Gigabit?

Cheers. I'll read into them a bit more but they do sound ideal as highly unlikely we'll get a good signal throughout without something like this. I have an asus AC66u router and still doubt that'll be good enough, which is a must as I'm home based as is the missus a lot of the time when she's not travelling with work. Thanks again for the info and @abigsmurf too

Thank you. Strange that it wasn't even in the data sheet I downloaded off the Tenda site.
Well this is odd. I and my friend ordered this last night. Both of us received not only the triple pack of MW3 but also a single MW6. No idea why, but what a massive bonus! Also amazed that an evening order with "48 hour delivery" chosen rather than 24hr came early the very next day!

The main point of mesh is thar it's the same ssd around all nodes and it switches automatically whenever you are. But to achieve this you have to disable the WiFi on your main router. If you have both (even with the same ssid) then working seamless is not guaranteed.

Having said that. I have 2 bt mesh and 1 a 3600 netgear with the same ssid/password (on my office further away) and I don't have any problems moving around. Maybe it's cos my devices are quite new and change on their own, maybe its cos the office is far away so no problems moving to the other places.
Anyone know if these would work with Sky Q router ?

The MW6 three pack was £120 on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Now £150. Might be worth waiting for Black Friday.
I bought the MW6 from Amazon. They work really well with 5ghz signal. I assume that they are better than the MW3. If you are really trying to get your internet up to speed and for the sake of convenience better to go for the MW6. No point chancing it with the lower spec. According to Amazon 3 pack MW3 is 3500sqm and 3 Pack MW6 is 6000 sqm.

I Tenda agree
I bought the mw6 which are slightly better range than this. Using just 2 of the 3 the signal in my house and garden is now robust throughout (brick internal walls) I couldn't be happier. They were very easy to set up.

Our house is brick internal walls and the router signal wasn't strong enough. These have really made a massive difference I didn't need the third one.
