In home mesh wireless

Post by Cakedaddy »

Anyone doing this? Anyone know anyone doing this? A LOT of people ask how they can improve their home Internet access and heard about this mesh wifi stuff. I don't use it, so know nothing about it. Anyone have any experience?

I kinda am. We Use Nest Wifi, but we have all 3 wifi points wired in. I tried mesh mode, and it worked, but it was noticeably slower (duh) due to the additional relay. Probably fast enough for phones, but wasn't fast/consistent enough for streaming 4k videos/etc to a TV, imho.

Other systems are slightly higher rated, but we have Google everything, and it's really easy to use.
It's not me, it's someone else.

Not using it. I have a Nighthawk X12?(whatever their top model is) and an extender at the top of the house.

I have looked into mesh systems, but they seem really expensive and I don't think the performance is there to justify it.
