Very easy to install
I had so many issues with the Google Nest that we had to hire an IT guy to come fix it all the time. He suggested we order this unit as a replacement. We have not had any issues since we got it. It was very easy to set up and we have not had any outages or lag time at all. Very happy and definitely recommend.
Best Mesh Network System out there!
We have Xfinity with XFi pods in our 2400 Sq ft 2 story home. We are also in an area where we don't get great Cell signal so we use WiFi Calling which has been spotty despite our 1gbps service. The XFi pods (we had 7 running) didn't help much if at all. We had dead spots that would render our cameras useless and in our son's room he would only get 10mbps download speeds at best and has had signal drop during school...I saw this TP-link mesh AX1800 for $229.99 and saw the great reviews so I bought it and since it's through prime could return it if it wasn't up to snuff.Let me tell you! 10 minute setup is no lie! Literally 10 minutes the network was up and running. You simply download the app to your phone, run it and it will guide you step by step. Only like 5 steps too!Speeds are super fast. We have 1gps service but never could get it before. My best DL speed was 550ish.now (see 1st Pic) it hit 700s and in my son's room that used to get 10mbps on a good day is in the 200's! Also, our cameras now ALL have full strength signals to the module and the WiFi! Couldn't be happier. We have issues in my office with signal also due to thick walls and I'm gonna recommend we use this.I think this is the best setup around. I spent more on the 7 XFi pods and they ******!Update:this system is so good we bought another one for use in my office at work which has been a black hole for wifi. I set it up today with no issues and now my colleagues and I enjoy fast internet anywhere in the office. My colleague bought one for his home as well and is enjoying the fulness of his hi speed internet now.***SETUP TIP: change your SSID in your router BEFORE setting this up so you can assign the Deco network the old SSID and Password so you won't have to change every device up with the new SSID. The system doesn't let you use the old SSID because it's already assigned. Then you go to your router settings and turn off broadcasting the "newly named" SSID so it won't show up on your list of networks. I did this in advance so I didn't go through the hassle. Also, I did have to re-enter the SSID and PW in my printers even though it is the same as our old SSID before but it worked like a charm after resetting it up.
Way Better than eero 6
I installed the eero 6 but was disappointed with a) the speeds I was getting around the house, b) fluctuations in the speeds for no apparent reasons even when the speed coming out of the modem was stable. I liked the eero software. I decided to try the TP-Link Deco WIFI 6 which is about the equivalent in functionality and price. The Deco has one major advantage in that each of the units can have a direct Ethernet connection to devices. Not possible with the eero 6. Only the unit designated as the router had an ethernet port. But the big difference was the speeds. I am paying for 300 Mbps service from Xfinity. Both the eero and the Deco show speeds out of the modem well above the 300 level. Varying between 320 and 350. But that is where the similarity ends. With the eero I was getting Siri speeds between 60 and 150 Mbps. With the Deco I am getting a consistent 180 to 210. And my Mac Mini M1 is connected by Ethernet to one of the Decos (not possible with the eero) and I am consistently getting over 300 Mbps! That's about twice the speed I was getting from the eero.I liked the eero software a little bit more than the Deco. The Deco allows for a lot more advanced configuration, but right now I don't see a need. The eero interface seems a bit more intuitive. When it comes to the basics they both seem to cover the same turf.Deco comes with Home Shield free for life. Home Shield Pro is an $55 per year. I think the basic plan will be sufficient for my needs. The eero Secure plan is $30 per year. They have no free plan. They have a $99 subscription which adds an additional three tools. I already subscribe to 1Password and use the free version of Malwarebytes, but if I didn't, this bundle would be a good deal. But, the Deco system is so much faster, has the Ethernet ports, and comes with an adequate security systems build in for life. So for me, it was an easy decision. The eero 6 went back today.
We were having constant signal issues! These things are a god-send! We now have internet connectivity throughout our whole property -- inside and out!
