I have been using this for a few months now, and have been very happy with it. I got it at this price from Costco, and would say it's worth the price for the complete lack of headaches I now get from managing my WiFi network.

I've got lynksys Velop (3-nodes) in March and I've been increasingly unhappy with it. I just want something I don't have to power cycle or reset every few months. Is this stable or gets funky over the time too?

Have had my setup for almost a year. So far have had zero issues with it and it works flawlessly. I highly recommend this to all of my family and friends!

I looked into this extensively and nearly pulled the trigger. It came down to this or the TP-Link Deco M9 Plus [costco.com] 3-pack deal for $199 at Costco (sale ended yesterday).

After a lot of research, I went with the TP-Link because of two things...

1) The Orbi router and satellites are BIG. They look nice but where I want to place them, I'd rather have something more discreet and easier to hide.
2) $100 difference

I don't think you'll go wrong with the Orbi set if you don't mind the size and spending a bit more.

anyone know how this compares to the Deco m9?

I'm liking that it has a browser-based interface, where the m9 requires a mobile app - AND that you can disable remote access. My two (and maybe only) gripes with the M9.

I didn't get my M9 delivered yet (just bought it yesterday) but my understanding is that browser UI is now supported. Not sure about remote access.

I have this for around 6 weeks, went through hell in first week of ownership with constant dropouts.. Then found some tweaks in a Netgear Forum, more than a month with zero dropout. IMHO no one comes close to the wireless performance of this (including eero pro). Nice thing is satellite units has 4 ethernet ports for backhaul.

Tweak:
1. Before full blown setup, upgrade to the latest firmware and do a 30/30/30 reset
2. Now configure WAN, LAN and wireless.
3. Disabled the peace of crap security and parental controls crap (some propitiatory netgear stuff)
4. Play with 2.4 and 5 channels and find the most optimal (2.4 usually have some interference)
5. Disabled ACL
6. Disable all logs
7. Enabled MIMO and BeamForming and disabled daisy chaining.
4. Few others.. and don't remember

Never going to update the firmware (I ran R7000 with one stable firmware for 5 yeara..)

wai t- if they aren't daisy chained - does that mean you don't roam seamlessly?

This is my understanding, with daisy chaining a satellite can connect to another closest satellite to form the mesh and it doesn't have to be the HUB. If the hub is located centrally to both the satellites do we again anything from daisy chain? I do roam seamlessly inside the house and perimeter of the house and when I check orbi app in my iphone it seamlessly switching between Hub to sat 1 to sat2 based on the proximity.

to me, the #1 reason to get a mesh is to be able to seamlessly roam. I had a bunch of APs before - and the disconnects between handoffs were annoying. it's great with the Decos

Super stable. I have about 80 wifi devices connected to them, too.

I got this for this price last year at BF time.

I don't think there is a relationship between mesh and daisy chain. A mesh network can be

Option 1 (My setup )
Daisy chain off (1 hub and 2 satellites)
sat 1 < --- > HUB <---> sat 2

Option 2 ( One combination)
Daisy chain on
HUB <---> sat 2 <----> sat 1 In this case distance between sat2 and sat1 are closer when compare to HUB

I notice zero drop offs between handoffs with option 1 in place. I am not a geek but can deal with little stuff Below quote from Netgear help section
Quote :
Enable Daisy-Chain Topology

This feature allows Orbi Satellite to connect to other Orbi Satellites. This feature only applies if you have three or more Orbi. When you disable this feature, Orbi Satellites can only connect only to the Orbi Router. Enabling or disabling this feature causes all your Orbi to reboot.
