Tenda Nova MW3 Mesh Wi-Fi 3 Pack $99 with Free Delivery @ PC Byte


Was looking into a mesh wifi system for home and this came up and I think it's a good price.

Can anyone with it comment on how many devices it supports?

    OP, search other deals on Ozbargain for the MW3 and you'll see the security concerns others have with this particular model.

    • & 100Mbps Ethernet ports.

    • If I'm rural, and security is less of a concern are they a decent buy?

        I think so, as long as primarily for Internet access and don't want NBN faster than 100mbit.

        I use one in a holiday house and turn it off when not there, so happy with that balance of security vs. risk. I used to have a Unifi AP Lite there but the coverage of the MW3 was superior when testing both side by side.

        Despite that, however, I won't buy Tenda wifi again due to the way the company handled this issue. I have some other Tenda gear which I'm happy with.

      • Not sure if mine is a faulty unit, but it struggled as the router for nbn. Was getting erratic speed sometimes as low as 2mbps. When I switched it to bridge mode, I was then getting consistent 45mbps

    • I'm not sure about the MW3 but the MW6 was updated to resolve the TKIP security issue.

    • Some people say to use fast roaming, would you recommend it?

  • Are these any good to add better connection to Xbox's in a few kids rooms?

  • Had the two pack, all the sudden kept getting disconnected.

  • Love mine , drop outs are rare, maybe once every few months but could be router, helped increase wifi speed for xbox & ps4 & everything else in all corners of a 4 bedroom else, would have 10ish connections used at same time.

  • They are very lacking in processing power and ram. Problematic for an AP, devastating for a router. You can add a MW6 as the router, which is slightly better.

    OR go the TP-Link route with the E3/4 or M4/M5 devices, all of which are interchangeable. But more but drastically higher performance.
