I second this, amazing system!

I struggled to get WiFi when in the garden but with this I have no issues, so many good features especially the parental controls to stop the kids going on inappropriate material!
Can anyone help me on this?

I have been considering a mesh system for a while but can't really find a definitive answer on this. I currently have a PlusNet router and can get up to 30mb speeds at my router when plugged in with a cable. On WiFi this drops to around 15mb in my first floor office on WiFi. I appreciate that in the most part this prevents deadzones but does it improve the WiFi speed as well. Currently my home office gets a signal strength of 89% from the router located by the front door.

I use OneDrive for work and I get a lot of syncing issues, I feel this may be related to my WiFi speed, but could also be a OneDrive issue as the software is terrible.

There will likely be a small boost, but ultimately it depends on the interference (number and type of walls, electrical interference etc) between the broadcasting point and the receiver.

Thanks for your response.

Its a new build house, with metal stud walls. From my office doorway you can see the router at the bottom of the stairs, so effectively it is just travelling through a ceiling and then passing again through a metal stud.

I may well get one anway as I do like the additional functionality of limiting what my kids can see and do, just hoped I might get a boost on my wifi speed.
This system definitely improved the speed from a previous router but obviously it depends on environment and distance. The app can tell you what speed each device is getting and you can prioritise things

I'm on plusnet and got similar WiFi speeds (16mb)using their router. Bought the Tenda mesh system and am now getting 25-30 mb routinely through out the house. So, I concluded that their WiFi is awful. Also my general Internet connection is more reliable. I don't use OneDrive, but I think any mesh system or even a better router would improve your connection.

Ceilings and non-brick walls provide block very little wifi and you're getting 89% signal strength so there's not a massive boost to be had there. You'll get a marginal increase from a slightly better signal strength but it'll be tiny. Any major boosts will just be caused by having a better quality router.

You'd be better served buying a Wifi 6 / AX router and dongle.

Have you considered trying a pair of powerline adaptors instead of wifi?

One thing that helped with my BT hub was splitting the SSIDs on the router for the 2.4ghz and 5ghz channels and manually selecting the channels for each. You need to add the new -5g network to the PC of course. A wifi analyser app like play.google.com/sto…zer is useful to help choosing channel ranges not already occupied by wifi networks with a strong signal.

Get this or BT Home or other mesh system. It will change you life. Or definitely your Internet Wi-Fi speeds.

I thought the whole point of the mesh system to the powerline system is that this one is more reliable and gives better coverage and consistency.

Power lines and the app for cherrypicking the channels to prevent overlap are both excellent advice. I kept the same SSID (name of WiFi network) or both networks and let the device determine whether the 5GHz or 2.4GHz connection is best. Genuine Q) What was the benefit is creating two SSIDs?

It's might not be a solution if the media of the house are blocking WiFi signals (Metal stud walls were mentioned). It's also an expensive solution if they aren't. Unless you have loads of users and devices being used simultaneously, powerlines or utilising a second router (old one with a 10m ethernet cable) as an access point might solve the problem for practically no cost.

I changed mine to make sure the PC uses the faster 5ghz network, otherwise it could fall back to 2.4ghz which is very flaky here due to the two nearest neighbour using a total of 5 dual band access points.

A couple of my wifi devices also had issues with the combined ssids, one was a 2.4ghz only camera I think.

I bought some powerline adapters and sent them back to Amazon. It actually made my internet speed worse if that is even possible, and no one could explain to me why.

Yes I am considering a better router as well. If you go on their forums they even tell you to buy a BT Homehub 6 and walk you through how to set it up. Might just get one of those and set up following their instructions and see how it goes. They can be had relatively cheaply on ebay.

I'm still without and broadband after switching from Sky to Plusnet. I was told, midnight on the 13th but yesterday I called and they said there had been an issue with openreach connecting the fibre and it should be done by Friday - and to think, my main concern was how was the router gonna be!

My question would be, how many, two or three. I’ve a bt hub 6, by the front door as I suppose in the past people only wanted their telephone there. It’s a 1960s build and by the back bedroom and kitchen below the Wi-fi is gone. I’ve currently got a powerline with Wi-fi giving me an ok signal in the kitchen, but going be putting that in living room for the bt tv box. I’m guessing that the two pack would be enough?
Might be overkill but I bit the bullet and went for the three pack version of this which seems good value amazon.co.uk/Dec…G3R

I bought this 2 pack and installed it yesterday
it comfortably now reaches the back of my garden, but it will depend on you home.
i live in a mid terrace solid brick home (built in early 1900's) and my virgin superhub 3 which is located at the front of the house used to struggle to reach the upstairs box room at the back
i put the main deco at the front next to the superhub 3 (now in modem mode) and the second deco in the upstairs box room at the back of the house and as stated comfortably reaches the back of my garden.

The signal is strong and consistent.

hope this helps

ps. the performance of virgin superhub 3 before this upgrade has been made to look awful compared to these deco's after the upgrade

I put all three of mine on the ground floor and it and WiFi reaches to the outbuilding. Left my old netgear extender on the first floor and I get coverage into the attic. Happy so far with it

Likewise - range and speed way better than the hub alone (for £100 of course!)
Just been thinking about whether to go for the 2 or 3 pack. Got a Google WiFi at the moment (3 pack) which has been fantastic for the couple of days I've been using it. Ultimately though, if this offers similar performance at £100 cheaper, worth me going for that. Once a WiFi is set up, that tends to be it!
