Did they give you a reason for not letting you post this? It's a FBA item, should be ok?
Get the M4. Amazing kit.

How many for a 4 bedroom house and a detached garage? (I’ve got an echo in it for music when on exercise bike lol)

Ahh it recommends 3....if only I’d looked
What about 1 M4 and 2 E4’s?
I've got the 3 pack of the M4 and it works perfectly for the same size house. 1 upstairs, 1 in living room and one at the router. Now we've for 120mps throughout the house and outside. Easy setup and great app.

Stated seller has less feedback than required although they sell internationally and have a very good reputation. Also their travel routers are very well known and well reviewed and received within the tech community. I have used them to create separate guests network at home, for wan failover for my main router, to create wiregurad tunnel to my home internet when I am away, when VPN is needed as well as being indispensable when traveling. Ridiculous decision by the mods really when it can benefit so many people at such a fantastic price in my opinion.

Might hold out for Cyber weekend and see how and what happens
Tp link m4 vs linksys velop dual band? Does anyone know how the apps compare, interested in good parental controls, e.g specific website blocking, which I think they both do but not sure if you need to have Homecare on the decos to get full functionality (only on M5 and above)

Not if your broadband is like the majority of broadband and less than 100Mb. The routers themselves communicate faster than this between themselves over the wireless link. If your broadband ever gets upgraded you can add one of the M4 units to the mesh to get the full speed. People get a bit over excited over gigabit without any practical use for it.

When they advertise the set as AC1200 it could be misleading to non techie folk so its worth mentioning. Even if your broadband is slower than 90mb transferring files or backing up to a NAS would also be slower

Pretty strange though, I always assumed that if your deal item was fulfilled by Amazon it was ok. They probably get no kickback from that individual seller hence not being able to post

Assuming you're talking about about the Sky Q TV boxes, have a play with wifi settings within the installer menu. Try changing the 5Ghz channel and bandwidth settings or disabling individual bands and see if that helps. I have my three boxes linked by 5Ghz only with 2.4Ghz disabled as it for some reason interferes with my wifi IP cameras.

Google “Sky Q installer menu” for the exact process to access it.

Thanks buddy, yeah I know 2.4ghz is broader but slower isn’t it? I have to keep both on as I have some 2.4ghz only items at the moment which is a shame
If you want 2 plus get an M5 for giga and Homecare then this be an option. It says one pack but in the detail, 2 units.

I’m in the same boat! Can’t decide!!
I’ll likely be shot for this, but do bear in mind that WiFi 6 is out. Horribly expensive for a WiFi 6 mesh system right now, but in a year’s time it will be a different story. Likely won’t matter to those looking at the E4s, they’re already old tech, but it’s worth knowing before making any large investments.

This is good to know. Thanks for the tips
So many subtle differences between these TP-Link units.
tp-link.com/uk/…23/

Deco E4 vs M4 look practically the same. Only difference I can see is the "LAN/WAN" Port speed
2 x 10/100Mbps (E4) vs 2 x Gigabit (M4)

In that case, either your network was perfectly OK in the first place, or you've set them up wrongly.

Whether 2.4Ghz or 5 Ghz is faster is very much situational. This is because 2.4Ghz has much better wall penetration and can get a signal to places where 5Ghz can't.

Yes. I've been testing this throughout the last few weeks. When I stand in the middle of the house. 2.4ghz signal is full bar while the 5ghz signal is 1 bar. 2.4ghz got 30MBps and 5ghz got 100MBps. So use 5ghz if your device allows it.

Without an Ethernet backbone, units themselves would normally talk to each other over Wi-Fi.

With an Ethernet backbone, they can talk over a wired connection, which frees up some of the wireless bandwidth for use by devices on your network.

If there's a strong wireless connection between the units already, or you're not doing lots of bandwidth intensive stuff on multiple devices then you may not see much benefit, but if you have lots of devices using lots of bandwidth then you'll see performance improvements by connecting them up over Ethernet ("Ethernet backhaul").

Downside is you need to be able to run a cable between them (or some of them, at least).
