Hello fellow SDers, I haven't seen this get posted yet so this will be my first time contributing back to the community.

I have been waiting for this deal @ $199.99 a while back but missed the opportunity. It's $299.99 everywhere else or OOS. However, after some searching, I found that the netgear website has it in stock and on sale for $199.99. You can also sign up for a 10% off promo code (taking an additional $20 off) for new subscribers to make this deal even slicker! Total came out to $195.29 after tax (CA). Enjoy!

I've had this for a few months now and I really like it so far. I live in a 3 storey townhouse and I get great coverage. No issues with it so far. I'm looking to upgrade as these don't really give out the full potential of Gigabyte speed.

Is there an Ethernet port behind the router and points? Can you Ethernet backhaul with this model?

Yes, each router/satellite has 2 Ethernet ports and you can have an Ethernet backhaul among them.

When you say you cant get the full potential of Gigabit speed, you are referring to wireless only correct? These should be able to handle Gigabit throughput to ISP with wired connections correct? I just want to make sure the router's CPU can handle wired Gigabit.

Yes that's correct. My bad forgot to mention that. So you will be able to get its full potential wired but not wirelessly (WiFi).

I have a mesh, but it doesnt let me throttle devices very well. Anyone have a recommendation for a top notch choice for throttling, allow different hours for different kids, etc?

Very tempting. Waiting for replies.
We got this for my sister and finally she had stable wifi in the 2 story w/ basement. After dozens of router and home finally got something her family couldnt blackhole.
I got a ranch and opted to go with this. I probably only need 1 sat vs 2.
Right now I have the router in the basement under lot of duct work and it still connects huge majority of devices the other sat in the the basement home office on the exact opposite corner of house and the babys room upstairs. So there is definiately blanket coverage and as I said even the router in the basement seems to connect to devices on the corner of what ppl tell me is a large home.
I'm thinking of centrally localing the modem/router in teh basment and swinging a sat upstairs in the kitchen or garage for broader coverage.

The other issue is really wish you could force devices to 2.4 or 5g band.
Mine shipped and I updated FW and I called netgear for support. The FW i updated thru the app had a bug that always said it was the most up to date and would not update via the app. So i had to manually download and update.
Also wish you could force a device to a specific satellite.
Yes can confirm you can have a wired backhaul channel, I'm doing it on one sat and may relocate my modem / sats and do the other.
I have probably 30 or so devices currently on the network.

Also Netgears do some weird DNS stuff. So my pihole instance has some issues. and if you use pihole as dhcp server I never got forwarding to work so everything shows up coming from the router.

How does this compare with the Deco M5, just in terms of stability? It's for the parents, so minimal hassle is paramount. There's ethernet backhaul, so I don't really care about dual-band vs tri-band
