Voted hot because it's night and was passing by..
Would this be one of the best systems available for under £100?
Shame the ports are 100mbps not Gigabit. I know they are available but not at £79.99
Currently have an pair of AirPort Extreme with 1 in my man cave bridged but need something to provide a bit of extra coverage upstairs in a dead spot. :/
Great price for this, best price on the market and again Amazon who have dropped the price on these for the second lowest time in 3 months.
I have these and they do work. Also, very easy to set them up. The app is also very good.
I set up the M5 version at the weekend, very easy setup and impressed so far. We had flaky wi-fi which now seems to be stable and 50% faster.

yep same here, very impressed with my M5 Black Friday purchase
Will this work with tp powerline Av600?
Has anyone seen a side by side comparison of all the various tp-link models. I've looked but not came across anything yet

I'm moving into a new house in February and I'm looking at the bt 300Mb broadband

Try this link

If u have 300mbps broadband looks like ull need the M4 as a minimum. The E4 has 100Mbps ports while the M4 has 1000Mbps/Gigabit ports

But this is only wifi, you can still use ur gigabite ethernet wire from your modem to you pc like normal. it is just the wireless connection that will have a bottleneck of 100mbps. buying a home plug would be a cheaper option, these flood the area with wifi but they repeat the signal so your speed decreases everytime use you a node. you will only ever get the full internet speed connecting directly to the parent node or unless you have a ethenet wire plugged into every node.

Is that correct that you'll get a bottleneck of 100 Mbps with these? I thought these Decos did 300 Mbps on 2.4GHz, and 867 Mbps on 5 GHz? The Ethernet ports on these Decos are limited to 100 Mbps though. Or is that 300 Mbps wireless connection shared between the three Decos?

but you need to connect the parent node by ethernet so thats how it bottlenecks.

Which is what I was trying to get at, my bad for not making it clearer.
My Virgin BB is 200Mbs, ideally I’d need the gigabit option.

the two m4 for £79 is a good deal, i bought the 3 pack m4 for my parents and two would be more than powerful for a normal sized house, they go right from across the street to the very back garden with full speeds of around 360mb

i have these tenda nova mw6 at my flat so far they seem just as good, and the range is amazing, my friends lives in the next block off flats and i share my connection with him, it must be 400m away and i put a node on his kitcken window and it picks it up on a yellow connnection and repeats it.

i would recommend setting them up with the wired backhaul because there is nothing more frustrating than connecting to a node that is not wired and having a weaker speed. because after your signal has been repeated it degrades a lot, so when you get stuck on a node that is being repeated when the mother nodes is in good range so annoying.

if you can not get every node wired connected i would go for the homeplug/powerline hybrid,

Nice write-up, thanks. Sorry to bug you with a question. I'm just wondering what my best option would be. I like the idea of the two-pack M4s. However, I'm not sure about my current setup. Downstairs, I have my Virgin router, and I've got my Shield connected via Ethernet to this. Upstairs, I'd like another Ethernet port. However, if I plug an M4 into my router and enable Modem Mode on the Supercrap Modem, I'd lose the Ethernet connection downstairs to my Shield. I guess one option would be to enable Access Point mode on the M4s, and that would keep the Ethernet ports operational on the Virgin router for my Shield. Then I could stick an M4 on the top floor to give me a second Ethernet option. Do you think this might work, i.e., having one M4 on the bottom floor, and the second two floors up? If I can get away with only paying £80 for two M4s, rather than £110 for 3 MW6s, then all the better.

on my mums i kept the hub in router mode but with the wifi signal off. and on the m4 i turned them to access point mode. all the ethernet ports on the virgin hub still work and the ethernet ports on the m4 work, so you can plug things like sky q etc directly into the back of the m4 and it get internet

on the virgin hub which is located in the kitchen i have the parent node plugged in and a powerline plugged in which connects to brother pc in his bedroom
on the parent node i have a 5 port switch plugged into the ethernet port and on the switch i connect the tw slave nodes and a pc in the backroom,
1 of my slave nodes is in the frontroom and i plug the sky q main box via ethenret into that,
my second slave node is in the conservatory and i have the sky q mini box connected to that and that sends wifi full speed right the way to my back shed,

so i have all my nodes on the ground floor but you get super fast signal upstairs, i will do a speed test from my bathroom

Is the only difference between these and the m4 the gig? Do you need the nodes too? Or is that juts an added extra , thanks

yes the only different is the gig port, you get 3 deco units in the box, each unit is a node. you select one as the primary node, then the other 2 act as slaves, you place the slaves around your house and they repeat the signal, so you get better range, and your laptop, phone ect will connect to the best signal as you move round the house without disconnecting. you can place the slaves around the house wireless, but you get best results by connecting each nodes with an Ethernet cable to the primary node then you wont get degration when the signal is repeated.

Back to full price?
Yeh back to full price but set mine up last night and it works perfectly. All dead spots have been sorted with really simple setup. Using with Virgin Hub, turned on modem mode and use the mesh system and in router mode. Option is there to use the system as access points aswell. All really easy in my opinion

I would say stick router in modem mode or wireless off connect 1st disc to router gigabit port ideal then the rest around the house as you wish you can either have them all setup hardwired through ethernet which would be best for optimal speeds or all bouncing off wireless signal depending on placement you may well see drops in speed. Hope that helps
