Seamless WiFi
Get rid of WiFi dead spots and make sure you always have the best wireless connection to the internet with the TP-Link Deco M5 Whole Home WiFi System.

No matter the size or construction of your home, DecoWhole Home WiFi is able to create a seamless connection that covers up to 4,500 square feet without any loss of signal. As you move around your house your device will automatically be passed to the best connection and you won't have to switch networks, sign in, or lose your signal.

Easy app setup

Deco Whole Home Wifi is easy to set up using the Deco app, as it takes you step by step through the process – even helping you find the perfect spot for each unit so you get the best coverage.

If you want to expand your WiFi to external buildings or if you move into a larger house, you can easily add more Deco M5 units as you need them.

Security controls
To guard you against viruses and malware, Deco has three years of powerful built in antivirus, with automatic updates so that malicious attacks will be blocked. You can also blacklist devices that you don't want using your network – to keep your WiFi secure.

Deco has impressive parental controls so that you can manage how much WiFi every device is using and filter content by age groups. If you want everyone to get involved during family dinner you can even pause the internet so they can't use the WiFi anymore.

Great price, heat
M5 at this price or an M4 for £100. What to do? I'm new to this mesh game but my three TP PowerPoints with wifi seem to be regularly dropping the signal these days when streaming video. Quick google says that the M4 and M5 are virtually the same except for a) physical size and b) the 2.4 ghz band maximum on the M5 is marginally faster. Any thoughts?
Where are the M4’s still at £99?

Apologies. It's the E4 model at £100.

These hands down. Wouldn’t touch the E4s with their limit of 100Mb Ethernet.

But then I personally transfer lots of files between computers in the house. One of which is connected via Ethernet
Just packed up my Nest WiFi to return to Google after a disastrous attempt to upgrade from a Google WiFi set-up that had been rock solid. The Nest WiFi kept slowing to a crawl and freezing on certain devices. Google even suggested getting Sky broadband to change their settings to make it work. Very disappointing.

I'm now looking for the best mesh alternative on the market. Is this it?

You could get a triple pack of M4 from Currys.

hotukdeals.com/dea…741

If you can wait a while they will surely drop down to £100 again.
Yea, saw they went up again.
Fantastic product
I bought the M4 recently and it really is a great bit of kit - especially for £100! I bought the M5’s today as I want slightly more range and hoping the 4 antennas (vs 2 on the M4) will help with that.

Would love to hear from anyone who has already tried both. If they are practically the same, as a previous poster mentioned, I’d rather just return the M5 unopened.

A big tip: ensure your original router is set to modem only mode. Initially mine wasn’t and, aside from the reduced functionality, this made it less effective from a range and speed perspective. Perhaps because the signals were interfering with each other.

I've just upgraded my TPlink homeplugs to the AV2000, and my cables to cat8, but am still getting buffering and dropouts on TV (using NowTV and Prime).

Would these improve my reliability?
I know that the m5 has slightly better specs than the M4 and that the M5 has 4 antennas whereas the M4 only has 2, but does anyone have any experience whether the M5 has better range than the M4?

I'm rather hoping it will for me. Browsing forums the TP Link homeplugs seem prone to intermittent signal drops. My internet is fast, stable fibre optic so i know it's not that. My firetv and main smart tv are both connected by ethernet cable to a TP Link AV500. Tried swapping the router for a borrowed one and nothing changed. When streaming cuts out i faff around and a minute later it boots up and i'm back in but the wi fi signal from the AV 500's is at times patchy as well. Tried all sorts of things but sooner or later it reoccurs. My house is not particularly large or has many solid walls so there shouldn't be a problem. Reached the point now that Mrs topazz is giving me grief. As i want fast, stable 5GHz wifi for my Oculus Quest VR i am hoping the M5's provide the solution to both speed and stability.

Well I have the M4 and they hands down beat the powerline plugs for me. I live in an old 3 floor house with thick walls and the bedroom on the other end of the house from where the router is I would only get around 20-30mpbs intermittently using powerline, but now with the M4 I get a broadband speed of over 100mbps consistently. I bought 2 x M4 (3 pack), but I am considering returning one set of the M4 to then replace with a set of M5 due to the form factor and the range it can reach.

Well they work for me quiet well and yeah very easy to setup. Who is your isp?

They cover up to 5,500 sq feet whereas the M4 only cover just over 4000 sq feet.

No you don't need another router as you get 3 nodes with which 1 of them can be placed in router or access point mode. I honestly think these might be enough unless you want certain features that your current router does not offer.

For your setup it would be as follows:

Talk talk router (wifi off) hardwired to Deco Access point (Main) - spread the other 2 deco units at most 15 metres apart from the main deco and they will connect wirelessly.

Thanks. It says it's a USB C power source. Does that mean I need a 13 amp plug with a USB C port for each one? And then a USB C to USB C cable for each as well?

You get everything you need inside the box including cables and plugs, you even get an ethernet cable to connect to your router and primary node. There are 2 ways to connect the mesh devices together:

A) They can connect wirelessly

B) you can daisy chain them using an ethernet cable, but that would require running cable throughout your home.

Thanks, I was just looking at USB C plugs and cables and that was going to add £22 for each node. Seems reasonable now.

I suppose that makes my TPLink AV2000s redundant now, although they've worked fine for basic wifi (not video/TV).

Haha no I wouldn't have purchased them either if they expected me to buy those. The usb c is to power the devices.

That is fine, if you can turn off the wifi on the Nowtv and then place the primary deco as an active point.
Just a couple of things that some may need to know about these

- You can’t change the wifi band they run on so they can clash with other things like Sonos causing drop outs.

- Sometimes the Deco that is furthest away in your house will connect to the main deco instead of the nearest one which could be in between them. This causing a weak signal, there is no option to select its connection source.

- There are no VPN options built into the router options either

All the above has been raised with TP link forums and unfortunately we get the same response “the development team are looking into it”

Do you know of any systems within similar price range that offer these options? I currently have the Tenda Nova M5 mesh system and pretty much daily have issues getting internet from them. It is either slow or non existent and have tried several things. So in the market for another mesh system.

I have virgin media 200mb and I also need the 2 nodes to have PoE ability to power security cameras. Any suggestions?
I’ve heard good things about the Orbi
Also seen positive things about the amazon Eero, just not sure if the same issue with the deco M5 are present in them.
Al the things I listed above about the M5 are suppose to auto switch.
I.e if the wifi band gets to congested it’s suppose to auto change, but lots of people have monitored this and it doesn’t change band.
And when the deco gets a weak signal it’s suppose to hop to the nearest source with a stronger signal, but again I can see from my own to link app it’s still connected to the weakest link

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean with it changing which deco it connects to, they really need to implement where you can choose which deco the device connects to as it is frustrating when it changes.

Have you used the code already?


Nope..... Very strange... I'm trying to enter the code in the 'add vouchers' section... Just keeps saying the code cannot be used on this purchase.
Gotta vote this hot. Just set them up and did a wifi speed test on my mobile right next to my base unit. Normally I would get a max of 30-50 depending on what else is in use...

210mbps was the result! We're on VM 200. Also got 55mbps in the bedroom ensuite (for toilet browsing!) Where wifi would be extremely pot luck, almost nothing. Very impressed with ease of setup and results so far.
