Great price, I paid £170 last week so needless to say re-ordered and will return those.

With mesh systems like this, if they all pass signals to one another, you can do something very wonderful.

With special software, controling your router, that's aware of the location of each repeater/antenna preset in the app on your computer that controls the router, you can tell when folk are outside your building, and stop them having access to your WiFi.

Still useful for folk with a garden, as you can fully control access able/disable/time/limit

An amazing use, that suppliers of the mesh extenders could supply, or at least tell you about, but I bet they won't.

Do a search, especially away from Google, about limiting WiFi mesh, and you'll see lots of options. Cisco started it, about 20 years ago, and lots of other companies and bedroom hackers, have written better/lighter apps

But for folk that own pub's, or coffee shops, that have passwords on the wall, it's really handy.

For offices, it's mission critical, stopping intrusions, and even more critically folk listening in/snooping on packets flying around, especially with so many wireless print servers.

Ooooh, question is now M4 or M5?

Some folk don't know how. This also needs ALL allowed users to change their credentials.

In an office environment, this could be a tough thing.

Plus, the disallowed person, if vindictive, could repeatedly attempt ping/login your router/mesh. Enough of these handshakes could slow down, or stop some routers.

Stopping outside comms greatly reduces risk.

Yeah I debated for a while but think the only difference is slightly slower 2.4ghz speeds on the m4, still 300mbs though. And they look better in my opinion
The m5 look reminds me of a smoke alarm :/ :/
I wonder if it might be better to buy 2 of the nodes and plugs, if you don't plan to hard wire what do you think amazon.co.uk/dp/…G67

I’d bookmarked the Tenda Nova MW6-3 at £160 just two weeks back, looking today they are £95.99 anyone know if these are better
Great price for these. Also allows you to monitor the network, sites visited, set time limits etc. All good stuff for the kids. Hard wire between units is best. Your always from if you don’t. But for a home system TP are good and this is and excellent system.

Looks clearcut!
Reading the reviews on this and it seems they have issues connecting to 2.4ghz. I was going to buy this over mw6 but now I think I will stick to mw6.
Will this work with sky q,

Do I need to disable the original virgin media signal, or can I use the virgin media as the first node?

I would suggest you to disable the original virgin media signal as it will make less conflicts between two wifi devices. It should be enough to cover the house with 3 nodes, if not buy another single when they run deals. There will be a new Deco product called Deco M3W which will be a good choice for add-on.
If I wanted to hardwire them all, would I have to piggy back of the parent node or can I connect every node directly do my virgin media hub?
How do these compare to Google WiFi? (Understand there's a big price difference)
Is this better than the BT Whole Home kit?
I had linksys velop ac3900 3pack for 100quid yesterday,just wondering how they compare
Using Sky Q and Sky Broadband - would this be compatible?
Thanks!
