This is a pretty good deal for a 3 pack through Amazon treasure truck. The satellites have no ethernet backhaul if that's important to you.

How well does this work in concrete houses with thick (10") walls? Thanks.

Also, about Ethernet backhaul- I'm not tech savvy person, but does that mean, Daisy chaining this router to main modem is not possible?

im not super savvy, but if you have a reasonably clear line of site between the unit and the satellites, you are good. aka, i have a 10" concrete wall that makes internet awful on the opposite side of the wall from the router, unless im in the line of site to the router through a doorway. even if the door is closed since the wood doesnt slow it down... so now i have a router on one side of the wall, and a satellite on the other, so they can communicate back and forth freely... so now i have great internet on both sides.

yes... no ethernet backhaul means you cant hard wire the units together. so they use some of the bandwidth to communicate "behind the scenes"... in your case it might matter if you dont have the option of putting the main and a sat in good working distance and sight of each other..

Great deal.

Any place with concrete walls is going to be a Wi-Fi killer.

Best solution is to run ethernet to key places and Wi-Fi access points (such as these Eeeros)

Except this model doesn't support ethernet backhaul, as iddigplants mentions above. So you can't connect these via ethernet. You'll need a pretty clear path between each of these units for them to work optimally.

They're also dual band wireless. So no wifi backhaul either, which means some bandwidth will be used up by the units communicating to manage traffic.

Apologies. I keep forgetting that these newest 'muffin' units from EERO don't have ethernet ports on the satellites.

To do EERO with Backhaul you have to go with either the Wi-Fi 5 Muffins, or go with EERO Pro.
