Decent price l think, not sure when it ends.
No, it’s actually the router, it has a WAN port, see here: https://www.dlink.com.au/home-solutions/COVR-2200-AC2200-Tri...
It can be used alone (although technically it’s not a mesh if there is only 1) but it also can be used as an additional mesh point if you already had the 2pc COVR set etc.
3 of these for $450 makes for a very cheap AC2200 3 point mesh doesnt it?
You may consider Google Nest Wifi at similar price and can be used as a Google Home and as a speaker.
How do i know how many (2 or 3) i need for my house. Its a 31sqs single storey house.
31 sqs only need 1. It is a very small house.
31sq = around 280 sq metre, pretty big to my standard, unless you’re talking about 2 storeys then yeah that’s small
To elaborate on Snooze's answer - 1 is sufficient for up to 325m2 which is ~35 squares. Not sure what Snooze is on about though - if they think 31 squares is a very small house, they must live in a castle ;)
Each COVR-2200 Router comes equipped with high-power amplifiers covering up to 325 sqm (3,500 sq. ft) with ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi. And with six powerful antennas and MU-MIMO technology, you can finally bury those annoying Wi-Fi dead zones.
Well I would assume that SnoozAndLose uses the metric square metres measurement, isn't that the standard for what we use in Australia? Squares is an old imperial measurement.
I think Snooze thought the OP was saying his house was 31m2 which is why he made the comment that it was a very small house ;)
Square metres is common yes, but project home builders often quote their designs in squares as well (as well as square metres) which is why squares continues to live on.
Start with 1, add another one if there is an area with weak signal.
Can we buy 2 of this and create a mesh? I checked with the guys in jb hifi this morning and he told that its not possible. I need to buy this one - https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/d-link-covr-ac2200-seamle...
This is more expensive than 2 routers in this deal which will come to only 298$. What are your thoughts?
It seems that it should work. Each one of the units in the 2-pack looks identical.
D-Link told me yes you can buy two of these when i emailed them a couple of questions.
In relation to this deal -> "Also FYI you can buy another one if you need to add on and expand your range."
Any better choice currently for a wireless router under $200?. Notice it has only 2 Gb LAN ports, but a cheap switch will fix that and AC2200 wifi for $150 seems like a good deal?
Looks like it's unavilable now :(
Looks like this is still available.
What would be better this or ASUS RT-AC68U (it's a 6 year old model now but everyone loves it) or something new like a TP-Link AX20?
