wow, the ignorance plus fake expertise here is astonishing.

extenders by definition are within your lan,
thus they cannot be seen beyond your wan.

half the mac address hexadecimals are manufacture specific
so pretty much everything from tp-link starts with; 00 14 78

if the NSA actually cared what you were doing,
you would not be able to detect it on wireshark
as the NSA would hide behind various proxies.

finally, NSA bulk data collection ended 6 months ago
and their post 9/11 mandate has not been renewed
thanks to a now democratic congress.

This is not the case, at least in my setup at home. I originally had router upstairs and an extender at the bottom of the stairs to get a better connection to the living room tv. I could barely watch things on Netflix. It was a similar tp-link extender too, not sure which one. Got an EERO mesh system and have them in the exact same spots and it's a world of difference. Even if I go outside I can pick up almost 200mbps from my 250 plan; I get about 240mbps downstairs and I usually pull about 260-270 from my desktop connected via ethernet. My system was like 200+ dollars though, however I setup something similar at my mother inlaws house for her nest cameras at the front door with a cheaper 70 dollar mesh system from amazon and it did the trick too. Would never use a range extender again.

Really not a huge fan of extenders. Slows your speeds down a ton. Better to go with mesh.

My understanding is that mesh is only better if each of the access points is connected via ethernet. Otherwise they're basically just extenders as well. Sometimes that's not always possible.

Yeah, you must back feed, back haul by cable to be any good results, what is the point? I'm doing that now with regular router used as access points.

I guess they are good in a warehouse, cable back haul left and right the length of it, use WiFi only down the middle, only for protection of lost wired access points In the mesh, replacement, maintenance of an access point. My problem is it locks you into a vendor. I got ASUS, TP-Link mixed, I guess in a mesh system you are guarantee no software compatibility problems, and the configurations are mostly the same?

Where I work at a university they back hauled everything, eventually having to go about every 60 feet, an academic buildings with cinder block walls, white boards, library steel shelving are a problem.

And one standalone 300 seat lecture hall, no windows, the Wi-Fi would not work outside the doors from the inside, nor alongside the building. The main building built in the 60s, same time frame as the lecturer hall, you would only pick up the WiFi outside of the windows.

I'm not sure what they insulated it with. It was like a Faraday cage.

If this has two radios, can you cross link the channels, one for the back haul only, 2.4 ghz, 5.0 for the WiFi access? This should get rid of some of the speed lost? You can receive on one frequency and be transmitting on the other? Yes this would bottle neck you to 2.4 ghz speed, but still, it would be helpful.

Be aware that these WiFi extenders have MAC addresses associated with the NSA. This can be confirmed through wireshark analysis of of the adapters and network traffic.

Add two extenders, $38. Mesh 2-3 zone, $150-$250. Let's do apples to apples, please.
You are missing the point. No one is saying mesh and extenders cost the same. People have different needs, and knowing you have options is better then not knowing.

The product title and listing says this is a 2019 release

The reviews date back to 2017

Also the description says there is a tethering app

It is not clear if we really need to use the app to setup this device

I would prefer not to use any app for something as simple as this -- installing yet another app on my already bloated phone and dealing with the permissions and privacy concerns ... I would rather avoid. Even the recent review complains about excessive permissions and some blatant terms and conditions.


Also not sure why there is "Smart Home and Alexa devices" in title -- what does this device have to do with smart home or alexa?
