Should be quite straight forward

That's weird, 3 in the title but only showing as a 2 pack underneath? :/
this is E4, even for 3 pack it wouldn't be a great deal

Really really easy. There is a quick set up guide, plus the app tells you the exact steps to follow. Really good piece of kit too.
41861711-j4pz3.jpgThis states 3 too. Title possibly wrong?
Good find and price, heat added!
What does Alexa do here, can I change the dns via voice?
Same as always wait for S4 or M4 to be on £99 as these limit internet throughput to 100Mb so spend the extra few £‘s

Very easy tbh it's kinda like plug and play
Can anyone here please advise if mesh is better than a single router? I’m not wanting to spend much more than £150 and I could get an ASUs router or a mesh system? It’s all a bit confusing! I’m wanting to use in conjunction with a virgin hub 3.0. Thanks

If you are talking about the Tenda Novas I would avoid them. Absolute waste of my time and money. They worked amazingly well when I first got them but eventually I had to unplug each extra node because the wifi would constantly drop and switch between them causing huge issues. When I was left with the final nova node, I was stood right infront of it, plugged directly into my router and I was getting wifi speeds of about 1.5mbs. Unplugging it and using my god-awful homehub wifi resulted in full speed, just not all over my house.

The novas have little config options, if there is a channel clash, for example, you just have to live with it. There is no means of changing the wifi channel. You also have to deal with the 5 and 2.5ghz bands existing on the same network name, you cannot split it. So if you have any devices that have a remembered connection to both, have fun with that device fighting both bands, dropping and reconnecting.

Absolutely god awful device. I was lucky that they decided to die within the 6 month return period otherwise I'd have been livid.
just to be aware, picked up three of the m5's a month ago and they don't play well with always-on Nest cams despite me positioning them within 2 metres of the cameras, camera's go offline for 15 mins randomly a few times a day (despite disabling beamforming and mesh hopping on the camera) seems to be quite a lot of others too on the nest forums but no one yet has worked out whether it's the deco's or the cameras.

Similar to this but I'm also interested in whether a simple WiFi extender might be good enough for some people too? (Obvs not good enough for stone walls, multi floor homes tho!)
As I understand product page the £89.99 is for 2-pack.
Has anyone bought it and received the 3-pack?
I have the S4 which is newer version to the M4 and is smaller in size to the M4.
The S4 supports speeds over 100mbps which the E4 doesn't. So if ever you are thinking of upgrading your home broadband then don't get this as you will only get the maximum 100mbps.

I have a Virgin 200mbps connection and this is fine for me. Fairly easy to set up but it is best to make your Virgin router as a Modem for better speeds. If you do that, and you have other ethernet cables plugged into your Virgin router, then they won't work. You will need to get a gigabit port hub and plug that to the main deco and plug all your cables to that.

The only issue I have with Deco is there is no option to completely switch off WiFi overnight through the app.

Scheduling coming in the next firmware update apparently. With the M5 currently you can go into the app and disable either 2.4 or 5ghz but not both.

Same as S4. You cannot switch off both the 2.4 and 5Ghz. You can however completely switch off the Guest wifi
I have s4, its smaller than this and get faster speeds. Bought mine for £109 (pack of 3). Im really happy with my s4.
I got the M4 when they were on offer for £95. Very little difference to the S4 apart from size and I think the S4 can control the WiFi signal strength? I was going to cancel and pay a bit more for S4 but the M4 have a 3 year warranty and I couldn't see anything about a 3 year warranty on the S4 page.

Anyway, they're brilliant. I'm using them with powerline adaptors so it's using ethernet backhaul, even better the App shows it's definitely using ethernet backhaul instead of just hoping.

They have limited my maximum speed on a single device but the QoS makes every device I use feel instant (I'm on 500 Virgin).
These all have dated wireless security which will give weak security messages on latest iOS and Windows 10. WPA2 TKIP which isn’t good enough in 2020. Unless you don’t care about it. People have been asking for an update since June and still waiting. The TP Link Deco X serious support WPA2 (AES) and WPA3

Hi, what speeds are you getting using the power line adapters for backhaul? Does it drop the speed on all nodes or only on the power line connected one?
I'm also waiting for the TP M5 3-pack to drop in price, then I'll be all over them like a tramp on chips.
