More than adequate in my opinion, get exactly the same download speeds vs connecting directly to my BT Hub 6.. I was considering the MW5 but if you’ve got broadband connection less than 100mb download I wouldn’t bother

For the price just got the 3 pack.. I only got the CCL two pack for £39.99 as the 3 pack had gone back up. The 2 mw3 does me fine in my extended 3 bed. If you’ve got a laptop download inSSIDer app and test your current signal strength in the rooms you need good reception. For me it was just downstairs extending to the garden which was an issue.

I have two of the original BT discs (not the mini ones) and I bought a set of Tendas to replace them with.

I wasn’t impressed. Speed was nowhere near as good, even with three Cubes vs two Discs. With the BT setup I get every Megabyte of my download speed wherever I am in and around the house. With the Tendas they were only really any good while in the same room as one of the Cubes. Stick a thin wall or floor between you and you connected node and the speed plummets. I also had to use Ethernet as backhaul, with their wireless link I was getting sub 10Mb down (Speed is capped at 80Mb) and the nodes weren’t very far apart.

I just wasn’t impressed with them. I live in congested wifi area (on both bands) so maybe that has something to do with it as you cant change the wifi channel on the Tenda kit.

That's just my experience with them, lots of others on here have had positive results and they're good value for what you're getting but a direct comparison between Tenda and BT - for me, BT outperforms the MW3 kit in every respect barring price.

sounds like the discs are better with BT. im all for a deal but these are so much cheaper than an orbi system for example im wondering if false economy

The BT discs work really well, I can’t really fault them.

For a time when I first got them, before my house was wired up for Ethernet had the discs at opposite ends of the house with four 1080p IP cameras connected to one disc and the NVR recorder connected to the other disc (with the discs being connected to each other wirelessly) and they worked flawlessly, with 8 camera streams and the internet traffic from devices at the back of the house. They’re that good I could, at a push get away with only one disc running the entire house.

That being said the Tenda kit might work fine for your application, they’re excellent value. I bought them as they cost less than the price of a replacement BT disc and thought they’d be worth a try. You could always try them and send them back if they’re no good, Amazon are really good.

Why did you want to replace the BT discs?

Why did you want to replace the BT discs?


Couple of reasons, one of the discs became cosmetically challenged after a re-decoration and the second, we’ve just had a new Orangery built that has a lot of metal work in the roof and pelmet. Both discs were located upstairs in the house, one in a bedroom and one in the Loft, we found that iPads and Motorola phones didn’t work very well in new room. Rather than buy another disc we thought we’d try these to have a Node inside the Orangery. After trying the Tenda’s I managed to make it work with BT discs by re-locating one of them.

I still have the Tenda kit and the free MW6 that came with the three pack, just so you know I’m talking from experience and not making things up here’s a pic of a MW3 and BT Disc side by side hiding behind a TV in our bedroom.

What’s the furthest distance they can connect. I have a detached garrage 12 metres away from my house.
Do not upgrade these to the latest firmware version 1.0.0.31 as 5ghz/2.4ghz devices will always connect to the 2.4ghz network.

You cannot go back to previous versions of firmware, mine came with v1.0.0.27

Found the app pretty good to setup, massive improvement over BT router alone, can now use Chromecast audio across house with ease and for normal use on a 50mbps connection more than happy at the price. MW6 still in box from ebuyer deal as not found a need, in the summer will look at garden coverage perhaps...
Overpriced and old now. £70-£75 was the cheapest about a year or more ago. £10 drop after a year doesn't seem reasonable. People buying old gadgets at high prices to what it should be like the Dyson V6 and tons of others so of course they will keep it up. V6 should be retired. Your changing the market and it will cost you and no one else.

Do these support Rate Limiting? I’ve got Google WiFi and it’s my only gripe.
I bought these about 6 months ago to try and improve home reach (BT infinity hub). They were a little sketchy to set up, in the end i had to have the nodes quite close together to get them to mesh. They were ok for a while but would regularly just drop. The nodes would also just disconnect from each other, even when virtually in the same room. Did try and resolve but customer care wasn’t great. In the end they were returned. Now have Bt whole home. Different league - speed, latency and reliability have been excellent since.

Fantastic piece of kit.

Easy to setup (I'm technical but non tech people can do it easily!).
Works like a charm
Speeds are more than adequate Coverage is brilliant.

I only use two - The main one that connects to the router and one more upstaurs.
So I have one sat as a spare.

This is in a decent sized 3 bed house.
Any good with virgin hub 3? Up to 200mbs (allegedly )
A word of advice; expect no customer warranty for these, I bought mine 6 months ago (3pack) they started acting up so I sent them to customer support after they confirmed they will replace them. After sending the items off that's it. £84 gone 1month no replies to any emails

That's unusual for Amazon. I would get on the live chat, you should have it sorted in minutes.
3 years warranty from Currys and the same price - currys.co.uk/gbu…=ds
I live in a maisonette split level flat and am currently using a TPLink Powerline Wifi Adapter setup. Wifi connection upstairs is patchy with half the speeds compared to if I was in the front room where the HomeHub is located.

Would this be an improvement? Currently with BT Superfast 2 so 100mbps is fine.

I had these for about a year and had loads of problems with the network dropping. Also, the MW3 doesn't have a gigabit ethernet port, so I wasn't getting the full bandwidth.

I went with a set of powerline adapters, and they've been so much better
mummymelly24/01/2020 09:31

I use SuperHub and it's fine.

Just disable the wifi from the superhub so you don't have two wifi's competing.
Also, name the Wifi from the Tenda to the same as your Virgin is currently with the same password and you don't have to reconnect every device.
No good for anyone half technical, limited functionality via the App only and no web interface
