These are this price all the time in my local Costco I think because I don't see instant savings next to their price tag.

I was reading about this setup last night.

Quick question for those in the know — can I hardwire one of the satellites to the main router using cat5/6 to extend to an out building that's away from the house?

Does anyone have experience with this and Google Nest mesh?

This is what I do with the M5's, I have them using ethernet hardwired backhaul.

Set one of these up at my brother's house a few weeks back. Strong signal throughout and easy setup. Would buy again!

I bought google wifi last year and returned it due to its lack of connectivity to all the smart devices. Then I bought Deco M9 plus mesh router and very happy with it so far. I have 6 deco pucks at home that connects to all the smart devices including the rachio controller.

I've heard setting up a separate VLAN for your IoT devices is the best way to go for security. However, I like the idea of having a mesh network. Does anybody know if I can have both? What would be the setup? Thank you

I have the Eero 2 pack from costco and love it. It sometimes gets very hot, but they said thats normal and I have not had any connection issues. I want to get another 2 pack but it has not come back to costco website.

Snagged these on the $99 deal a few months back. Used Eero, Plume, Google Wi-Fi and Nest Wi-Fi previously. I find the M9 3-pack to be incredibly stable. Throughput is sufficient, not as fast as some others, but at the tradeoff of stability, I'm happier with this system over all others I've used.

I have this setup, and I added an M5 unit in the garage. It works flawlessly.

Deco M9+ is the best wifi mesh network I've used. I've tried Google-Wifi & Orbi as well.

Using it in a 5,000+ sqft 3-level house.

Extra benefits:

1. Built in Zigbee smart home hub
2. Extra ethernet port on each "puck" to hardwire in primary use devices (ex. Apple TV)
3. Excellent app

How does this compare to the Orbi RBK23 3-pack deal for $180? I was going to buy the deco m9, but once it was gone from Costco the website I purchased the orbi from netgear's website. Does it pay to try to cancel my order and get the deco m9 instead?

We do not have the M9 - ours is M5. And our M5 has been the most trouble-free of all of the technology products we have ever owned, which is a lot. We have used our M5 for two and a half years now, and it just does not demand any attention from us. We wish all tech products were as easy to live with as our M5.

Naturally we cannot directly speak for M9's reliability, but if our experience with M5 is any indication, it should bode well for M9.

That is a tough call. This a good price for the Orbi. Do note however that the high acclaim that the Orbi product line garners is almost always for the RBK50, and more recently, RBK853, but not necessarily for RBK23. We own the Deco M5, but before we bought our M5, we had the Orbi RBK23, which we returned because the firmware was very buggy at that time. I am sure the firmware kink for RBK23 has been ironed out by now, so that should not be a concern.

I have a feeling that you will not notice a big, if any, difference between RBK23 and M9. We are partial to TP-Link because of the good experience we have had with M5, but I would say stick with RBK23 and save some money in your situation.
