Not as goods as previous $120 - $25 deals, but seems a decent price for now.

Yeah, this is a decent deal. Picked 2 of these up during the last sale to add to my existing 3 and all 5 work great together. Ethernet backhaul is highly recommended.

This is basically the price I paid for 2 refurbished units back in December 2019. It's a pretty good deal. I want to add more Decos but I think I will wait for 2 M9s which have the dedicated 5 Ghz band for the backhaul.

Smart move just make sure you make the m9's the mains while the m5's positioned in the fringe of your wifi.

Triband with MU-MIMO so they are able to communicate a lot better, faster speeds being AC2200, and they also can act as Zigbee hubs.

I think the M9 is tri band and the M5 is dual.

How many of these would I need for a house that's 2,600 square feet under air? Also, we have WiFi extenders that have helped but still not allowed for having video calls in the parts of the house furthest from the main box.

Thanks in advance!

I think I'm going to need to invest in a mesh wifi system in my next house, mainly due to the smart devices I plan to install everywhere. Is there a 'most recommended' system that people use here? Right now I use a wifi extender but it really messes with things when you move out of range of one and into the range of the main router. Does it matter what brand of smart devices you have? I already have smartthings for my z-wave stuff but I also have a bunch of Kasa devices. Is there any advantage to using a tp-link system for Kasa devices or does it really not matter?

I've been troubleshooting a set of these for weeks with TP-Link. Hooked up to fiber and we can't get it to go over 45mbps, even when connected directly to the unit via ethernet. Wasted probably 8 hours now with their support team resetting, replugging, moving them around, etc.

I'd wait to see what is available when you get into your next house, as this tech changes a lot. Extenders are awful and should be avoided at all costs. Mesh systems using multiple AP's are currently best, especially using Ethernet backhaul. You can wire around obstacles and make everything seem seamless to your devices.

Got the M3 and love it. I'm sure this is a great system. Realize though that it is designed to be set up via Deco smartphone app out of the box. You'll have to do.some digging to set it up the more traditional way in a web browser.

One thing that isn't so obvious to check is QoS. In the app, click on the "More" button on the bottom and click on "Test Internet Speed." If that doesn't show your full speed, power-cycle your modem and check your cabling. If it does show a high speed, take note of those values then go back and click on the QoS button, go down to where it says Edit at the bottom and enter those values. Whatever values are entered for QoS will be the maximum speed any of your devices will be allowed to run at. Or you can just go into QoS, Edit and select "Get via Internet Speed Test" and let the router do it. I prefer to do it manually and round the values up a little.
