Last week I purchased the set of 2 for the same price as this deal.
A bit of backstory I live in a 2 bed flat that is an old Victorian house converted into flats. Our main router is in the living room and there was always a dead spot in our bedroom.
I tried wireless boosters and power line adapters. Boosters had no affect. Power line was intermittent I have 150Mbps broadband and was getting between 10 and 40 in the bedroom.

Since installing this mesh system I am getting 150-130 around the whole house no dead spots. Mesh is the truth. I work in IT and for this price this is a very good system. It’s lacking a few features such as MAC address reservation or insight into firewall settings, web portal. All confit is done via an App. So if they ever stop updating the app and it suddenly doesn’t work on the next OS you may be up the creek. Also the fact it’s a Chinese company but to finally have no dead spots or multiple ssid’s for under £100. Priceless

True, couple of Tenda Nova MW3's (~£45) were good enough for me with lower needs, which got rid of weak/dead spots. I'd also tried everything else (including a highend-ish router): hotukdeals.com/com…918

Yeah I went for the MW6 because of the Gigabit Ethernet which was a must for me. I have a couple of gigabit Ethernet switches daisy chained for media stuff and my homelab. With my broadband being 150Mbps Gigabit Ethernet was needed to get full speed from my virgin media router that’s been in Modem mode since the day I got it. I did have my eye out on other mesh systems or upgrading to a fancy router and a new power line but this ticks all my boxes. Especially price.

The only thing that worries me is it obscures so much stuff I would like to see when it comes to administration and the Chinese firmware Backdoor Factor. But the easy of set up and operation trump all of those for me. I used to swear by TP link which has the same risk factor.

Been waiting for a deal on these for a while.. thanks OP
Awesome price. If you want a mesh setup, don't hesitate at this price.
Very tempted to return my 2 pack to get this deal. They only came on Friday lol. Not even sure where I’d stick the 3rd unit. Maybe I could flog it on eBay. I wonder if I have to pay to return it to amazon. :/

This is a bargain. I have the MW3. Thinking of trying this or Google WiFi. MW3 was an improvement but need a better result.
I have the MW3 and they work great but i did find that they drained the battery on my mobile really fast when connected so changed back to connection with router and all good again with battery...Very odd why this happebned
I’ve had the cheapest Netgear Orbi which has been around £70.00 for a bit of time now, can’t fault it, its been rock solid from day one. I been using it about 6 weeks now with great WiFi all over a large 4 bedroom 2 storey house, no dead spots and even works great in the garden.

MW3 is cheaper because it biggy backs power from your device, but mw6 doesn't do that, has the E46 M3 power chip in it, which is 4th generation.
I managed to get this for £88 a few minutes ago. Here is how

Follow the link on the Amazon main page for £8 of minimum £80 top up.

Sorted. This deal for £88
This is the lowest price in history.

Did you add £88 or £80?.Then get the £8 top up?
How does this compare to powerline?
Quick question on these, Do these replace your existing router? or does one plug into your existing router? The issue i have is my router is terrible, so if i still need to use it then i may have to look for a better alternative. Cheers

I topped up with £88 and in the top up page it said £88 + £8 free total £96. I did it this way for simplicity

You put your existing router from your ISP into modem mode and connect these to one of its ports.. you then get 1000 mb speeds over WiFi and the network ports of these devices. For me i then get my virgin media 350mb speeds over my mesh network.

Ok great thanks
Would this work with a Sky set-up, we have the Sky Mini's which are apparently boosting too, which don't seem to functioning as well as they state. This looks a better option, however unsure if the Sky set-up can be configured for this.

Thanks, the issue i have is my modem from plusnet is useless, always needs resetting, so i may go for the D-link router instead of these. i have 2 power lines form upstairs that work great so range should not be an issue.
MasterAK16/07/2019 10:04

So much better in my experience. But power line depends on your wiring in your house. In my house it fluctuated to much. No issues so far with this mesh unit.

Can you put your Plusnet modem/router into modem only mode. If so it may eliminate the issues you are having as it takes the router function out of the Plusnet box and makes it only having to control the modem to connect to the internet. It won't have to control router functions, WiFi functions, DNS, DHCP etc. It will simply become a passthrough device to connect to the internet. The mw6 will then do all the things to manage your network in the house. A mesh network transformed the internet in our house.

If I can help in any way get in touch.

Might wrong, but Plusnet router is rebranded BT hub 5... BT router does not allow modern only mode, I guess it will be same with Plusnet

Thanks John! very help full indeed! Appreciate it!
Has anyone used this with a NAS? Do you plug the NAS into the existing WIFI router or into one of these? Pros and cons of each approach?

The units only have one LAN port. So you could plug the NAS into that. Or connect a switch to that port if you have more than one device that needs a wired connection.

Yep definitely two ports on each device
Ordered this after ordering then cancelling tplink m5...hope I don’t regret it lol
Feedback is welcome and look forward to hearing the good news
Dang, I missed it
So far so good. Solid connection everywhere - 50-60mb download speeds on WiFi on iPhones etc. No more ‘poor connection’ on FaceTime.

Occasional hiccups but this is supposed to be ok as the Tenda mesh network ‘learns’.

Hope day 1 continues.

Anyone else? Feedback most welcome.

Had some issues connecting my Nintendo switch. It refused to connect on 5ghz after trial and error got it to connect but still only getting 30Mbps on the switch. Every other device is getting 90Mbps+ in every room out of 150Mbps. I miss being able to separate 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channels but all mesh systems work this way. Biggest thing I miss is MAC reservation and being able to see logs. Had a few instances when app refused to connect which is worrying as well. As without the app there is no way to manage the network.
