Walmart seems to be randomly discounting these routers in-store.

Is this router any good? Description says it is a mesh router. Where can you get the mesh units?

I believe any of the Linksys Velop mesh units should work with this router.

Would this be a worthwhile upgrade over my current Netgear R6900 for $54?

I'm getting 250Mbps service from Comcast, and currently have the Netgear integrated with a Linksys Velop system in bridge mode. Base Velop unit is tri-band, two satellite nodes are dual band. One benefit I thought of is that it would allow me to move the primary tri-band node out as a more capable satellite.

I see this exact router listed twice on walmart site, Which one is it?
Because the brickseek link takes to from non walmart seller since it is the lowest price but walmart is one of the seller as well.
Then there is another listing of the same model sold by walmart.

Link from OP
https://www.walmart.com/ip/LINKSY.../925424216

Same router but another listing
https://www.walmart.com/ip/MR9000.../187634660

Reviews are the same for both listings

The brickseek link I originally provided is the one that was accurate for my local Walmart, where I picked up one.

My Brickseek link was accurate for price. I kept checking it and jumped on it once it was showing $54 on BS. Sure enough, it was $54 at the store, even though it was still marked $139.

Brickseek right for availability, wrong for price. Rude lady at Walmart as usual, said "We dont price match" never asked her to, so told her no worries, you are putting them back on the shelf.

Mine was right for price. Item availability was "Limited Stock", but it had said that for a while when I knew there were at least 4 there.

It seems they have 2 different listing mr9000. One of them is on clearance and other at full price. So you must have found the full price as the one in OP is not available what I can see near me

If I already have a Linksys Velop mesh with a triband router included, why do I need this?

This is a better router AND a tri- band mesh unit. You can then use your triband Velop as a more capable node.

I found two at a Walmart that brickseek showed out of stock. So keep your eyes peeled if you're looking for one.

One thing I did notice was that this Walmart had two different models. One was "MR9000" which was on sale but the other one was "MR9000-NP" which was full price. The images on the boxes were a bit different but all the verbiage was exactly the same.
