Yes, this one uses their newer "HomeShield" which is $55/year.

Many other models use their "Homecare" which is the same thing, but free. Here are the models that have the free "HomeCare" I have the M9, and the parental control are fantastic, as is the TrendMicro antivirus

I've been researching the TP-Link suite of mesh systems. Here are some key specs for anybody interested.

X20 / W3600 (Walmart) / AX1800 - Dual Band
5 GHz Primary - 2 streams at 80 MHz bandwidth for 1200
2.4 GHz - 2 streams for 574
1800 total rating
4 streams
2 antennas
1 GHz Quad CPU

W6000 (Walmart) - Dual Band
5 GHz Primary - 2 streams at 160 MHz bandwidth for 2400
2.4 GHz - 2 streams for 574
3000 total rating
4 streams
4 antennas
1 GHz Quad CPU

X60 / AX3000 (Costco) - Dual Band
5 GHz Primary - 4 streams at 80 MHz bandwidth for 2400
2.4 GHz - 2 streams for 574
3000 total rating
6 streams
4 antennas
1 GHz Quad CPU

X68 / W7200 (Walmart) / AX3600 (Costco) - Tri Band - Best for wireless backhaul
5 GHz Primary - 3 streams at 80 MHz bandwidth for 1800
5 GHz Backhaul - 2 streams at 80 MHz bandwidth for 1200 (from TP-Link Support: 5GHz backhaul band is exclusively dedicated for backhaul transmission; not for client connectivity)
2.4 GHz - 2 streams for 574
3600 total rating
7 streams
5 antennas
1.5 GHz Quad CPU
One name. But you can disable the 5ghz while you setup 2.4ghz devices. No way to separate SSID's.
Yes I did (well, the X68s but they are the same thing)

I had 3 pack of Deco M9+ that I bought at Costco. I recently upgraded to a faster internet tier. The M9+ were GREAT vs the original Nighthawk R7000 single router I had. But the M9+ was topping out around 150-200mbps in many places, and in certain places I could get more like 250-300.

With the X68, plus a change in the placement of my main Deco (I moved it to the other side of the home office room where it is 10 feet closer to the 2nd and 3rd unit now), I can get 350-550mbps to my phone depending on where I am and who else is using the network.

Note you WANT TRI-BAND (which this is). Someone else mentioned the W6000 which is dual band. Unless you are wiring each of the satellites with ethernet, then you want TRI-BAND.

Note also that this Costco is basically a 3-pack of X68 units. Walmart also sells "W7200" which is basically a 2-pack of X68 units (the Walmart ones look to have a slightly different shape of black plastic top but I think they are otherwise functionally identical to an X68, and the Deco app shows "X68/W7200" as one listing for a type of equipment.

Hope this helps. If you only have 200mbps service or something and are already getting those speeds on your M9s then I wouldn't bother upgrading. I you have much faster internet then this X68 should be a speed upgrade for you

Bought this router and it isn't quite cutting it speed wise. Have 400 mbps option with comcast, but can only get about 100 - 150 mbps on my third floor (router is on first floor). Hoping this mesh setup would be any better.

For anyone that might own these, do these allow separate SSIDs for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz networks? Many WiFi smart devices that I own (including TP-Link's own smart switches, dimmers, plugs etc. as well as those from other brands) work with only the 2.4Ghz and unable to pair with the WiFi network if the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz use the same SSID. There are hacks/workarounds but don't always work and my current Mesh network (Eero) does not allow separate SSIDs for the two frequencies or a long term workaround to get the 2.4Ghz-only WiFi smart devices on the network. I have an unopened Netgear Mesh from Costco but found out that one also does not allow separate SSIDs. So wondering if this one might be different/better in that respect?

Thanks for any input,
-Topper

My current mesh system, OnHub, is nearing it's end of life this year. Google is offering me a discount on their new router, but it's still WiFi 5. Is this TP Link the deal to take and move forward with? I have a few more months until I need to pick a new system.

No it does not separate the SSID.
All my 2.4Ghz devices picked up the correct band.
The Asus mesh allows you to separate the bands, this TP Link does not.
I am waiting for the price on the Asus (https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-ZenWi...r=8-4&th=1) to drop.

They do not allow separate SSIDs for 2.4 and 5. They do allow temporally disabling the 5 GHz band. They do allow using the guest network as 2.4GHz only. I have the W6000, a similar but DUAL band set using ETHERNET backhaul from Walmart.

Excellent system. I bought it from the last deal last quarter of last year. Fixed all my dead spots and covered a 4000sq ft house and 4 gar garage area with plenty of bars. It also extended wifi to the end of my backyard and into the street at the front yard. I only used 2 of 3 nodes. I will prob use the 3rd one to create a wired network in the garage or my office some of my servers.

Basically everywhere in the house I'm pegging my speed test at what my internet speed is.

The only issue I have is the homeshield/parental control that sits behind a paywall. But it's enough to be able to control my kids internet and I can group device basted on family members (son, daughter, wife) to monitor their time online.

It says there are ethernet ports per unit. Would you think you get a better speed if possible to mount one of the satellite next to your pc, and use the ethernet connection instead to it directly, atleast for a speed test. This is how I have a remote pc set up as.
