I've been researching mesh networks for a while now, trying to decide whether to use a mesh network or hard wire the house.

I stumbled upon the TP-Link Deco M9 Plus from Amazon after reading this review
uk.pcmag.com/wir…019

Even though it's only two units, seems a good deal for a tri-band mesh system and 4500 sq feet should be sufficient for most.

It's not the lowest price it's been but seems good value

It also features a built in smart-hub and creates a Bluetooth and Zigbee mesh in addition to Wi-Fi. I'll continue to use my Smartthings smart-hub.

According to the PCMag review, it trumps some of the competition on router and satellite throughput.

Got the 3 disk version and works quite well. No difference from my old bt mesh one speed wise though.

If your a heavy user id reckon you'd notice the difference, BT is only dual band so has to use a portion of that for the uplink.

I'm a heavy Internet user (don't use 50 devices at a time. But do use 10-15)

Using it on virgin media 380mbps download and 40 upload and not much difference to be honest.

My disks are hard wired and I guess that could be it. Maybe if you have them connected wireless that's where the triband really shines.

I'm still happy though. App control for children access is great and the bt had no parent control... Also I can give my office higher priority as I work from home.

I'm looking forward to receiving them. I was going to go with ubiquiti unifi, ceiling mount and hard wire but decided against in the end. It would be too much effort to chase and fish cables around the house to the loft and I'd also need to get a new Poe switch or injectors. Hopefully this should suffice my needs.

Yeah. You won't regret it. It works very well and almost no setup requires

The powerline back haul version might have been a better option, if you can't wire them. amazon.co.uk/Dec…8-3
So advice needed please I currently have an access point at the other end of the house which does the job but I have to change the WiFi on devices when I’m moving around the house, and the speed is pretty bad the main router gives me 350mpbs whereas the access router only 30 if that

I have hard wires in some rooms but they are pretty old cables now so not sure if that will help

iust checked and I will need to disconnect my main router WiFi

Yes as the mesh system uses mesh technology to talk to each other, converge the network and handoff between access points.

If you have access to ethernet, a dual band system with gigabit backhaul.

Dual band without ethernet is simply one up from repeaters.

And old ethernet.. can you see on the cable what "cat" it'll be?
Cat5e and up is ideal. (1000mbps, post 2001)
Cat5 is only upto 100mbps.(not good)

Hi thanks for the reply i have just checked it’s a cat 5e cable so not as old as I thought!

How does the dual band system with gigabit work? My current setup is that I am using the main router WiFi for half of the house I have a cable from the router to a Ethernet switch on the ground floor where I then have cables going to some rooms in the house on the other half of the house I have a dual band access point which always seems slow and cuts off and find it fruistrating that I have to always switch WiFi’s however this access point keeps the cctv live etc
