Unless your desperate I'd wait for the M4's to go on offer which can normally be had for £99.

Unless your desperate I'd wait for the M4's to go on offer which can normally be had for £99.
I have the m4s, very good. Been using them nearly two weeks now. Just a question for anyone who may have the knowledge -I've noticed losing connection on Xbox live now and again probably happened between 5 and 10 times over two weeks, but it never happened before... Could that be related to the mesh setup or not?
What is the difference between E4 and M4?

What is the difference between E4 and M4?


TP-Link Deco E4 only comes with Fast Ethernet port which means a maximum speed of 100Mbps
They have the M4 with £26 off so £104 for those, I've just bought so thanks for the heads up on this deal.

I suspect so, since installing mine I have found I occasionally need to switch my wifi (on my phone and ipad etc) off and back on to get the connection working (if i do a speedtest it has dropped to near zero up and down instead of 70/18 so something seems to get stuck with the system I think as never had this before the mesh set up

I've got an issue with android devices being disconnected once a while, possibly the distance on the device but my laptop is fine.
Got two setup, one in front and back of the house, was in a conf call walking around the house and steamlessly switched access points without any lag or drop.

Have you connected your nodes via Ethernet or are they purely wifi?
Without back haul mesh networks have to bounce your connection from node-to-node hence they are more susceptible to wireless interference. (Wireless landline telephones, microwaves, neighbouring WiFi networks, etc.)

Also have you disabled the WiFi connection on your home router?

I have the BT Whole home and have never had this issue.

Thanks, my current setup is as follows:-

Virgin200mb fibre downstairs -> gigabit powerline 1 also downstairs
------
Powerline 2 upstairs currently connected to a repurposed BT homehub 3 for wifi, doesn't work that well!
Can I have the same SSID on all the AP's?

I've got a similar system Tbh except my homehub is running Open-WRT
The problem with multiple hubs is that devices don't like hot swapping between access points, preferring to stay connected to a weak, patchy signal instead of an excellent one. Not to mention how crappy the homehubs wifi is at the best of times. Mesh networks solve this issue.

Yes, that's how mesh networks work

Sent mine back. Devices disconnect from the WiFi from time to time. Never had the problem before and seems a lot of others have the same issues

They are connected through WiFi, and no I haven't disabled the home router WiFi... I'll try that see if it makes any difference.. Thanks. Any other input still welcome from others

Thanks, just what I was looking for but unfortunately showing out of stock now
Hi guys,what Wi-fi speeds can this transmit up to ?
I've got the M4s. Great bit of kit. No issues with Wifi since we got them. The EE smarthub (BT smarthub in green highlights) dropped all the time. I have turned on the advanced WIFI handover - it warned this is incompatible with older devices but not had a problem - even with the old Android 5 based fire tablet. I would highly recommend enabling this. It encourages phones etc to use the strongest signal. Its been so good I've even dropped using my powerline adaptors and instead use one of the deco's as a wifi adaptor for my two PCs (work/personal). EE Smarthub has its Wifi off to reduce interference.

Edit: I think the M4s are better investiment with the 1Gb Ethernet ports. 330Mbps+ Fibre is going to everywhere pretty much in the next 5 years. 100Mb connection to the router won't really cut it.

The process is quite involved and requires some soldering / specialist electrical programing equipment (a couple dollars from China) but if you're up to it:
openwrt.org/toh…v5a
Installed these couple weeks ago. Fantastic. I get cut off Call of Duty MW (old one) Online multiplayer on the desktop, which I have hard-wired to the Deco. Not sure if it's Deco or the game. It happens when connected via ethernet cable or WIFI.

There's a setting called Fast Roaming IEEE 802.11r that is disabled by default.

Do you guys recommend enabling it?
I got some of these. Very flaky, sent them back and I rarely give up on tech.

No worries. You can always turn it off again if you have any issues but I bet you won't. Its off by default for the people rocking 10 year old devices who just want stuff to work when switch on.

Yep. WiFi light is off on Sky Router. Not a big deal as I use my mobile network. I think it's my rooted phone rather than the Deco network.
