These are some pretty cool routers. AX (wifi 6). From the tech support told me these can be meshed together. Thet have auto scanning for the best channel.

The reviews at amazon about unable to set up mesh worries me. Otherwise i'd buy 2 of these to replace my Deco M5.

Waiting for the next deal.

Yes, and very limited features.... not having a whitelist option in this day and age is inexcusable in my opinion. Pretty much every router I have used has it.

People don't read the descriptions carefully then have false expectations, hence make bad reviews. I blame the company too for being obscure with the descriptions.

"AI Mesh OPTIMIZER creates a stronger connection between your EAGLE PRO AI mesh WiFi devices (E15 & M15/2) and your router"

"D-Link Wi-Fi Mesh allows you create a robust mesh network with other D-Link EAGLE PRO AI Wi-Fi Mesh devices (coming soon)"

Could this be used as an AP on a CAT 6 hardwire Ethernet network?

Had very sad experience previous with Dlink. Mediocre range, terrible user interface compare to Asus, and not quality routers. Switched to other brands, more expensive but happier wifi performance. And if you are a tech that like to play around your router, i would recommand to shop other brands. Pass

If you're not worried about the "mesh" capability and need a new router then for $40 this looks like Ok option for WiFi 6
