Bought the twin pack of these from Amazon last month, really good connection and improvement over VM Superhub, was getting around 20-25Mb upstairs, now getting 280-300Mb.
Guys help me out.
These or the MW6 ??
I bought the three pack last week. Really impressed with the connection speed and functionality. I upgraded from Tenda MW3.

Don't have any experience of the MW6 but have tried to other cheaper mesh networks before buying the m5 set and they are awesome. Love the app, love the coverage, love the easy setup. Haven't figured if I can separate out a 2.4ghz channel on its own separate network yet but haven't really investigated it fully yet.
The set I bought were about £15 cheaper but this is still a great price and worth the money.
Got these set up couple weeks ago, no dead spots in the house and no constant switching to the strongest connection with extenders

The app is really useful and you can manage your home network whilst being away too.

So I use these and while the coverage is good, the performance is pretty awful, especially if you have lots of devices using heavy amounts of traffic, internal transfer speeds are pretty poor, and talking of terrible, so is their support!

Strange, do you have the M5 units? As I have these also and in a household of 3 with 4K streaming, downloads and gaming we have no issues and always seem to have solid speeds.

No just a simple first Ethernet connection to the Virgin Superhub and then the Deco upstairs is on the wireless mesh network. We have speeds of 360 downstairs and pushing 300 up.

I have exactly the same setup and three kids in the house all using streaming, gaming etc. and we never have any issues either. Been rock solid since day one.
Do these work? My parents have tried the plugin wifi extenders and they are pants

Yes. They're a different beast to wifi extenders as they create a single wifi network across your house without the need to connect to the nearest access point. It's basically like a dose of steroids for your wifi router, but it they have a lot more controls built in - e.g. being able to allocate devices to certain users and then control access on a user basis. Ideal for me as I can switch the kids' wifi off at a certain point so they can't spend every evening staring into a phone or tablet.
Expired. Now showing up for £167.99 instead
I bought these a couple of days ago and setup today and like others had issues with the speed.

The coverage is fantastic full reception all over the house, but I was getting the near on full 80meg download and normally bang on 20 ping, but with these installed I never got above 60meg (usually 35meg-45meg) and the ping was always around 35.

Have packed them up and will be returning (have installed the old router and it's good again - although only issue why I tried them was I have purchased a new CCTV camera for the front of the house and the signal keeps cutting out).

When I had a look on a WiFi monitoring app both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz seemed to setup for the most congested frequencies and I could not see anyway where to change this?
