My understanding is any router with "AX" can directly replace the fios router with no additional hardware, there is no modem for FiOS. I just bought this deal to replace my FiOS router.

Update on my experience: I installed this on Friday. For reference, I have Spectrum gig internet plan, 2 story home, main router upstairs, satellite downstairs, doing wireless backhaul.

1. Setup was crazy easy, by far the easiest I have experienced among Mesh routers like Asus and Orbi. I was up and running in about 5-10 minutes. No false starts or restarting from scratch needed to get it working out of the box.

2. Speeds were not as fast I expected, but definitely among the fastest I have tested. Using my iPhone 13 Pro, I was able to get a top speed in the 600-700s right next to the router at first, but would usually average 400-500s. Was never able to achieve higher than that. Speeds were really inconsistent so I would sometimes get as low as 200-300s right next to the router or around the house as well. Hard to tell if it was the router or my ISP. The deco app did not have an option to test the internet connection from the modem to the router.

3. Similar issue with the satellite unit. I have a PC connected via ethernet to the satellite. When first started up, I would reach close to the 1gig speeds, But then for some reason, later I would only get half of that usually around 400-500s directly connected. Same for my wifi devices connected to the satellite, but sometimes even lower at 200s. Not sure if this is due to the dynamic backhaul switching bands possibly?

4. Dealbreaker for me was that my nest cameras would constantly disconnect. Similar problem I had with the XT8s.

I was looking forward to this system, but for my experience and purposes, it did not work out for me. I hooked up my Arris Surfboard mAX AX6600 (2 pack), and everything just works again and will probably keep it. I have more stable, consistent, higher speeds (close 600-700s; further 300-400s) than that of what I was able to get out of the Deco with wireless backhaul. I think the available reviews online (i.e. dong) tested it out when it first came out a year ago and it did not exactly wow anyone. But my guess is that firmware updates have improved it alot since, and from my experience, its working awesome and you get similar speeds from both the router and satellite.

If you want to check it out, here is the link. Its on sale for $299.99 and I think the sale ends today. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/arri...d=6443774. Also on amazon for same price too.
I bought this so will update with my experience after receiving it. From past posts and reviews, seems to be one of the fastest mesh (and even among stand alone routers) that can take full advantage if you have gigabit internet plans.

I'm upgrading from an Orbi RBK53s which has been stable and reliable. Just wanted faster speeds.

I've tried the following using wireless backhaul:
1. Orbi 753: couldn't even to get it set up initially out of the box despite multiple restarts and factory resets; got frustrated and returned
2. Asus XT8 - I liked the speeds when it worked. Sometimes it would take multiple tries during setup for it to recognize the satellite. Big problem I had was with nest cameras constantly disconnecting. Tried factory resetting, binding IPs, turning off 160 mhz channel, separate guest network, but still had that problem.
3. Currently trying out the ARRIS SURFboard mAX Tri-band AX6600 2 pack (on sale at Bestbuy and Amazon). So far I have been pleasantly surprised. Nest cameras working as expected. Average speeds are higher and more consistent compared to my experience with the XT8. Negatives are that it comes with only 2 Ethernet ports and are placed under the unit so my cables are slightly bent (will probably get right angle cables). Also there is no web interface and no real customizations or tinkering that you can do. However, it just works right now and giving me faster and stable speeds.
I purchased both.

The ax5700 is clearly the faster unit. However, the range did not work well in my house at all.

Switched to the 3 pack 3600 and the range is impeccable. However, the speeds are lower on paper but there is no noticeable difference in my daily activities (streaming 4k video, work etc).

connecting and naming devices is simple and easy on the deco app. great gui. i believe this model however, can have a lesser total number of devices connected (something to consider as seemingly everything is connected to the net these days). GL

How does this compare to AX3600? Anyone has any experience with that? I bought that just a couple of weeks back from Costco

2 units vs 3 units but speeds are night and day difference, bandwidth on the AX5700 maxes out at 1.4Gbps while bandwidth on the AX3600 around 800-900Mbps.

So minus a loss of some coverage which should only apply for huge houses, the AX5700 are the superior unit in terms of performance. So if you have 1Gbps or faster internet this is the set you want.

If coverage continues to be a sticking point just buy 2 2 packs and sell the 4th unit to someone who needs a great single router. The 1 unit router compares to $400 routers and their individual resale value is extremely high.

Quote from cantalup :

This is mobile phone app setup, there are ways into TP-Link units directly with web interface but they dont offer any other functionality outside the app, so in most cases your better off with the phone app.

Great review on the set here:

https://dongknows.com/tp-link-dec...sh-review/

How to get into it:
The Deco X5700 does have a local web interface like the case of the X60. You can reach it from a connected computer by opening a browser to tplinkdeco.net, or the default IP, which was 192.168.68.1 in my case (a bit different from the usual 192.168.1.1 found in most TP-Link routers.)

This is the cheapest they been to date, this is a FP deal without a doubt!

With a wireless backhaul, should I expect gig or close to gig Wi-Fi speeds as well?

The 1.4Gbps was with wireless not wired back haul so YES, as long as you have the proper client cards in your devices.

Want to add for clarification:
If you only have 1Gbps service you will realistically see around 950Mbps with the other 500Mbps+ just available for LAN traffic. So a lot of room for heavy lan traffic like NAS boxes doing local streaming.

Thanks. Appreciate the detail and links to the review.

I prefer fully functional web interface than can be controlled locally not rely on cloud .

I am preparing what is my nexr mesh router. Currently use 3x tmobile ac1900 with aimesh. It shows aging now on my experience.
Do you have suggestions mesh wifi that has fully functional of the box ( 2 pieces:router and one node should be a starting point)

Tplink seems having a good/best price compared with asus😄

AiMesh is the most powerful firmware and feature set of any router/mesh if you want to tinker you have to pay up the nose and get Asus, two AX86Us should be a great start but yeah you wont like the price tag.

Almost no mesh has full or advanced features through web interface. I believe netgear just added some in to their latest Wifi 6E and Wifi 6 higher end mesh but outside of that all app based and limited local control and thats done on purpose cause almost noone needs to make changes from the default.

thanks again.

I am eyeing ax86u but resist to buy due to $$$ pricing, the price nevers drop

either "cloud" mesh for selling my soul to the cloud or pay $$$ for non "cloud" mesh wifi.

well, going to get along with asus (tmobile) ac1900 router with aimesh until asus (asusmerlin) drops the update/fixes Mad

Thanks for the detailed response. I have a 6000 sq feet home so bought the ax3600 for better coverage. Also don't have 1Gig yet. Still on 300/300 and may go up at some point. But I like your idea on buying 2 packs and selling the extra unit. Will check on what they go for if sold locally. Perhaps Costco also comes up with a 3-pack at some point?

Thanks. Coverage is my concern too, esp. for deck and garage (etc.) as well. Not on gig yet so can wait on the 3-pack too. Who knows.
