is M5 deal a good deal? how is M5 compared to linksys Velop Tri-Band AC2200 (3 pack)?

thx
Didn't see any answers to your Q, so I'll wade in. I've had my eye on the M5 three-puck package for the past couple of months. Amazon has had a couple coupons/deals that dropped it $15-$20 lower than it's usually-standard price of ~$175. When I saw that package, WITH an Echo Dot thrown in, listed for $149 yesterday morning as part of Prime Day, I bit. (I was sort of holding out for a three-puck Google WiFi package, but it never seems to drop below $225, plus, I also wanted the option to use our mesh solution in access point mode and not just router mode -- Google WiFi will only do AP mode with a single puck, and not a three-puck setup.)

The M5/Echo package arrived on my doorstep last night, and I got everything installed in about 20 minutes with my Verizon FiOS 100/100 service at home. The three M5 pucks have vastly improved WiFi stability and coverage across our 50+ year old, 1,300' square foot house. Wish I'd bought a mesh setup a year or two ago and avoided limping along with the crappy built-in wireless on the FiOS Quantum Gateway router.

I highly recommend trying the Deco M5 mesh solution...it's vastly improved life on our home network in the past 24 hours.

opinion: i've given to-link many chances with their wifi products. I'm done with them. each and every one has been unreliable and buggy, and requires endless reboots, dropped wifi signals, lock ups. not worth the headache. they did upgrade my last one to top of the line as a warranty replacement, which was worse than the one it was replacing! went with a Linksys and rock solid.

Need suggestion for a router.. I have an older TL-WDR3600 that keeps dropping and I need to restart it most of the time.. Any suggestion which router is recommended? just for home use with 10-15 devices. Thanks!
Deco M9 excellent. I switched from Netgear Nighthawk, tried Orbi but this is the best system and fve minute setup. M9 cover 6500 sq foot and I have over 50 devices plus five Tv's and not one hick up at 100/100 fios. Got it from Costco on sale $230.

I saw someone recommended hard wiring. That is one option. Ping isn't important for what you want to do, so wireless is also a good option.

You could re-purpose an older router to become a repeater (no cost if you have one laying around). But repeater and extender are the same thing. So any of the options will suffice as long as it has what you need. Some of them come with an extra ethernet port so you can hard wire from it as well.

You could use the ethernet powerline adapter too. I believe one of the options on the front page has a powerline adapter that has wifi functionality too. Most don't have that dual functionality but you could always attach a cheap router if you get a non-wifi model.



Probably any of the ones listed on the front page. They all support above your rated speeds. The AC1200 is the cheapest one on the front page right now, but it will do the trick if you don't want to spend too much.
Thanks.

I have a Netgear router laying around ​that I will try to use as a repeater. Just hoping that is is pretty straight forward to connect it to my existing router as I have never done it. Google it is.

I have a generic router from Spectrum.

Would it be worth while to get the AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router (Archer c1200) and replace the generic router from spectrum?

I'm on the 100mbps plan.

Yes, this way you can stop paying them $5 a month to use wifi. Applause

My tip is to restart the instructions you find if it doesn't work on the first try. If it still doesn't work, then look for another set of directions. I've found some directions add steps that aren't needed and some are different enough that it doesn't work with my router.

Your router might make things very easy and simply auto-configure everything by scanning available networks and entering the wifi password for that network. I'd suggest looking for this first as it is the easiest thing to do.

If all else fails, you can see if you can flash it with dd-wrt or something which does have the scanning function I mentioned. It is pretty straight forward if it comes down to that.

Thanks! I will give this a try!

Any of these routers will work. The wifi routers just need an ethernet cable connection from the cable modem.
