This or BT whole home WiFi? Just bought the refurbished ones but can cancel the order.
I have these. They aren't bad.
Anyone got these? If so what are your opinions on it? Could do with my WiFi being boosted in multiple rooms.
I have these, no issues from me,
Works a treat in my 3 bed semi
I have four of these. They work really well. My WiFi has been rock-solid since installing them and so much better than just using the WiFi from a router. The app makes it really easy to set up a guest network, so that visitors can connect to the Internet without using the main WiFi network. As I work from home, I don't want visitors of my children's friends being able to explore PCs on the network.

I think BT over this particular model as BT has gigabit ethernet
Brilliant bit of kit, we have an old house with solid walls and it works a treat. Highly recommend

I think this has Ethernet backhaul where as BT does though?

What's that? Sorry I'm new to all this and still learning. Had a Tenda MW3 but returned as it was limiting speeds from my 100MB Virgin connection. I've now bought 2 of the same refurbished BT trio as you, waiting for them to arrive and test and see if any good for me
Bought at this price before posted to HUKD, set them up and getting my full speeds at every room in the house. Also very easy to setup using their app!
Would these be appropriate to use for the garden ?

At most, we would be 60 feet from the router

Do you have to have one of them permanently hard-wired to your existing router?
{I'm just returning a single eero unit that had to be wired like this, it was simply useless on its own}
Only 100meg ethernet on these, M4 model has 1gig ports
I got the M4 set for a similar price last week. If you're not bothered about the ethernet element on these systems then these will be more than adequate.
Excellent kit but get M4.
Can't decide whether to go mesh or for a unifi ap, my house isn't huge, would just like better coverage in the corners and out into the garden. Anyone had any experience with either?

Yes that's how it starts the mesh, obviously a single unit on it's own isn't going to be much use
I've not had the universal joy that others have had with a set of the 3 X M4.
But it is definitely an improvement over the sky q router WiFi performance.
My Acer Chromebook constantly gets frozen out on WiFi as to where I have to restart, coverage is better but I was expecting more TBF but maybe that's my placement? (4 bedroom house)
I have 1 by the router, 1 upstairs in the spare room and another in the kitchen.
Is it better to bring them closer together do you think?

Just wondering if you have any mini-boxes connected to the SkyQ system, & if so would the mesh system created by them interfere with the mesh created by these?

Hmmm, looking like mesh may be the way to go, I rarely hear anything bad about it, just usually how good it is!

Ethernet backhaul is where you connect all three units via ethernet cable. It gives a much more consistent speed but if you can't do that then having them connected wirelessly works fine too. I had the Tenda MW5 but returned them because they dropped the connection frequently. Went ahead and bought the Deco M4 and they are a big improvement.

Thanks for explaining. How do you connect all units via ethernet? I thought one has to be connected to the modem via ethernet and the rest are strategically placed around the house and linked up wirelessly to the main node?

It is easiest to run ethernet backhaul for new build homes where the ethernet connections are already pre-wired into the walls. There are two ethernet ports on the back of each unit. The main unit connects to the modem, the other port is used to connect to the next unit and so on.

Are these devices capable of POE?

I've currently got the Tenda MW5's and seeing much the same regarding dropouts. I'm hoping these will be much better

Saw this yesterday, but I'll wait for the M4 to come back on offer.
Have installed a few Deco and other mesh systems at friends houses recently, M5 have been my favourite so far with a couple of wall mounts but honestly they are all very good with few issues. To give an idea one got an old council house with attic conversion. One is in the loft, one on the ground floor.. those two cover the entire house (3 floors) with extension. I actually ended up with a spare which is now in the shed covering the entire garden and half a play park my kids use nearby. Very good range!

Hi mate.
No I don't, I'm still on the older sky+ system TV wise.
Literally just the sky Q router.

I assumed these would connect via the electric mains circuits like a power line device. If they need a pre wired Ethernet connection to do the backhaul the Ethernet ports on the back will be redundant for most users I would think?

Yes, ethernet backhaul is only an option for those who have the ease of running ethernet cables. Most people will connect the units wirelessly with the exception of the main unit that needs to be connected to the modem.
It is not redundant because not all devices (ie. phones, tablets, etc.) can be connected via ethernet.
The standard price for these on Amazon is £89.99. They sometimes go up to around £110 - £130. But spend more time at £89.99 than any other price.
Hi,

I wonder if someone can help with a couple of Questions.

I currently have Vodaphone fibre, but hopefully my street is being re-cabled for gigafast this month - would these max the wifi connection available?

Do these keep the router name and password or can they be changed to replicate the router. I remember changing the nest smoke alarm was a nightmare!

If you take away the speakers from nest wifi (I already have Sonos), does nest have any advantages over these?

Thanks.
Paid £105 for these a few weeks ago from Amazon
