    Got them from a previous deal to replace my Netgear Nighthawk router. Price and coverage is good, but I'm experiencing problems with the 2.4GHz wifi devices(yeelights, air purifier and xiaomi cameras keep disconnecting). Also, WPS is not supported so I couldn't connect my Wifi Mitsubishi Air Conditioner.
    I had to use an old Netgear 2.4GHz wifi extender to connect the above devices and they are now working fine

      mine had initially, after a while it will stopp having those issues. Not sure how but now they all work in harmony. I now got 3 MW6 and 2x MW3 from the last deal. My home wifi is now very good. I also got LAN points where I need them like tvs and media players.

    What is the difference between mesh and wifi extender?

    • +1 vote

      I believe mesh has a separate dedicated backhaul wifi band to link up other mesh points whereas the wifi extender uses part of the existing wifi link therefore eating up bandwidth.

        By default it will be a wifi extender with same SSID, as most people won't be running Ethernet to each of the access points.

      As the name suggests, extenders provide an extension of the network across your home. In effect it creates another network. As such, you need to connect to the “extended” network in other parts of the home.

      Mesh devices work together to create one network across your home. As you move around, you don’t have to connect to other networks as the whole home is blanketed by the mesh.

      Extenders are cheaper. Mesh is more expensive.
      Extenders can be a hassle. Mesh provides convenience.
      Extenders can be finicky to setup. Mesh are generally plug and play.

      Hope this helps.

        Thanks a lot for the explanation. Same ssid, Does that mean mobile and laptop will auto connect to the mesh device which has strong signal without manual change on phone wifi settings?

        So when i get the mesh devices, i just connect the router's LAN and primary mesh's WAN with cable, and additional two mesh will connect to the primary mesh automatically without any setting. Then i can take additional mesh to any room i like to put. When i walk from downstairs to upstairs, the phone/tablet will automatically connect to the upstairs mesh. Is that correct?

          The answer is Yes.

          However, you need to remainder the LED color when you setup your nodes.

          Solid Green: excellent distance and WiFi signal

          Solid Yellow: not bad distance and WiFi signal

          Solid Red: Discounted and no WiFi signal

    Hey,

    I got a set of these from AliExpress when they had a sale for about 95AUD (though non Australian warranty / stock).

    Even though it says it's AC Wifi, the WAN/LAN speed of the ethernet port is only 100Mbps so that's the max speed you'll get.

    These are excellent for everyday use (good coverage and easy set up), but if you're trying to data transfer over LAN, it'll bottleneck quickly. The MW6 is a GIgabit Ethernet I believe.

    Cheers,
