    Awesome deal - thanks OP!

    This or wait for RBK50 to be back in stock?

    •  

      RBK50 is in stock???

      •  

        No, not yet, hopefully soon.

        I am wondering whether this or the RBK50 is a better buy though - I am guessing the RBK50 is a better, albeit more expensive, product.

    •  

      Have been waiting for a month for GGC to fulfil my RBK23. Seeing all these other deals for decent e ough mesh systems has been killing me but i have waited this long.

  •  

    I have three of these and really easy plug and play. Just have to note, check your firmware and update them if you buy as it doesn't prompt you.

    great deal…..but Good Guys Commercial RIP :(

      Why rip?

      •  

        Probably got done like I did reselling the stock. Boy did I cop a hiding from them 😅

        •  

          Really? How?

          •  

            @Hargain Bunter: I basically dropshipped via eBay. Would have been pretty easy to see someone buying a whole bunch of stuff and then shipping to different parts of Aus. Was bloody way cheaper too using their signed delivery method!

            •  

              @LittleTicket: Did they cancel your Commercial account?

              • +1 vote

                @Hargain Bunter: No. But they now monitor any purchase. So I don’t bother anymore unless it’s for me.

                •  

                  @LittleTicket: But how did they connect your ebay account to your real name?

                  •  

                    @fredblogs: They didn’t. They just saw I was ordering a heap of shit and sending it to random addresses across Aus. So they knew I was doing something not aligned with their Ts and Cs.

    Anyone know the likelihood of TP Link providing a future firmware update so these would be capable of IEEE 802.11ax/ wifi6?

    • +1 vote

      Not possible. Wifi 6 uses different hardware.

      •  

        OK thanks for the info- was hoping to get the fastest system on the cheap.

        •  

          Wifi 6 mesh isn't cheap and $600-$1400 is the price range.

          •  

            @Twix: Yes, that's why I asked the question- buy these> get firmware update> get wifi6 set up for $248 not $1248
            ;-)

            @Twix: Apparently Costco have a three pack of the TP-Link Deco X20s for $467. Can't comment on their performance though.

            Edit: Derdew posted below the two pack for $270, which is better value.

      New TVs and smart phones are all generally WiFi 6 compatible so not long until many other devices in your home will be, I'd go the X20 over the M9.

      • +1 vote

        Most new 2020 model TVs are still 2.4Ghz. Use ethernet where possible.

        • +1 vote

          Yes actually it seems many new TVs are Wifi5 rather than 6 after I did some googling. Personally I will be using ethernet anyway, but considering phones are always going to be wifi, I would still opt for the Deco X20 at $270 to future proof.

          •  

            @Ven0m: Seems X20 is a worse product due to no triband / dedicated backhaul

            • +1 vote

              @fredblogs: Oh fair yes, but I will be using wired backhaul. Otherwise for most people I would say M9 does actually offer better coverage and speed.

    Called them about this and no stock nationwide, so prepare to have your order cancelled/wait for it.

      Belmont in WA confirmed there’s no stock in WA, but confirmed stock has been ordered from east coast. ETA is 2 weeks.

      I am, but I live in the Pariah State.

        happy to ship using auspost. no pressure

    Be aware that you can't use the USB port for an external hard drive, which put me off not buying it after some research.

    •  

      It's something I never used for the purpose you mentioned, what's the benefit ? Sorry trying to learn something new

        I'd be using to share and save my files over network without goint to the computer, especially lots of high quality photos from my camera. It is more convienent.

    A question from a non tech person. We have a telstra smart modem ,via NBN in our study. Do these mesh units sit in other rooms and increase the range on the existing network. Do you keep the telstra modem on, or do you use one of these as the main modem and get rid of the telstra one and place the other in another room.. Does one need to be connected to the telstra modem via Ethernet . My goal is increase the range hopefully not mess with my existing set up.

    •  

      you wont need the telstra router.

      • +1 vote

        But can I keep the Telstra router on and working and use these to extend the wi fi range? Will they link wireless to my router and then i can place them around the house and maybe one outside in our shed? . If not what product do you recommend to extend range and keep the same network name?

        •  

          You can't keep the Telstra router as it won't mesh with the TP-Link. You can remove the Telstra router, and use the same network name and password on the TP-Link so that you don't have to reconfigure all your devices.

          •  

            @fredblogs: thanks for that. Any suggestions what can i use that would mesh with the telstra router?

            •  

              @ern123: from memory i read the telstra router has many features disabled which included allowing a wireless bridge to connect to it

              i used a xiaomi mi wifi with bridge activated, but i suspect it acted as a repeater/ap. it expanded our wifi coverage but no mesh capability i.e. no auto offloading onto a diff ap

            • +2 votes

              @ern123: The Deco's can add mesh to your current setup if they are connected to your router by wire.
              (Best to turn off WiFi on current router in this case.)

              Maybe this would work with your setup? https://www.telstra.com.au/internet/extras/wifi-extender

              •  

                @McFly: Doesn't make sense to wire it though. He doesn't want to keep the router functionality, he wants more wifi coverage and thinks that keeping the Telstra router will give him that.

                Agree that Telstra wifi-extender might be a simpler solution.

    •  

      What kind of NBN? FTTN, FTTB, FTTC, FTTP, HFC?

      For phone calls do you use the Telstra landline or just mobile?

      •  

        FTTN and just use a mobile no landline.

        •  

          For Deco on FTTN you turn off wifi on the Telstra modem. From the Telstra modem to the 1st Deco must be done via Ethernet and the 2nd Deco via Ethernet or wifi signals that is placed in another room.

          Telstra sell their own mesh nodes.

    Recieved a call from good guys today, telling me they have no stock and if I would like to cancel for a refund.

    Couldn't provide an ETA when stock from supplier would be available.

    Just cancelled my order, will take 5 business days for them to issue a refund.

    •  

      Does the website tell you where there is stock? That's what they told me on the phone…

      •  

        I checked most of the stores in my area, and it said no stock.

        The item had a tag before that said online delivery only.

    •  

      I have one on order also….was told to expect it within 2 weeks

      •  

        Did you call them to confirm?

    I think this is showing as $349 now, can anyone confirm?
