  • anyone run 6 of these? have 3 so far but would like to take some around the property

    • Unless you really need 6 devices, is purchasing 2 pack of WiFi6 capable Deco an option? You will spend about the same but may have an upgraded setup with total 5 devices. Maybe someone more experienced can chime in

    • I have six. All connected to Ethernet back haul. Had zero problems. Runs rock solid.

  • A single pack is available as well for $71.20 which is a good price looking back historically.

  • Whats the benefit of these over just adding additional routers with wifi around the house with different SSIDs?

    • +6

      Seamless roaming. Seamless admin. One network. Just so so much easier.

    • -1

      Not much if you're not moving around the house much. Seamless switching to the router with the strongest signal if you move around a lot

  • Can I plug this to existing router or i need to replace my router with this one?

    • +1

      existing router is ok

      Most of the time the Deco replaces your existing router.

      1. Do you have FTTN, FTTB, FTTC, FTTP, HFC? Check here.
      2. Do you use VoIP or 4G fail over supplied by your ISP?
    • You can either use the M5 as a router (default) and configure your existing router in bridge mode, or use your existing router as is and configure the M5 in access point mode.
      Either way, you should turn off the wifi on your existing router to reduce interference, unless it supports wifi 6 which the M5 doesn't.

  • I have TP-Link Wifi-6 Modem VX220-G2v (https://www.tp-link.com/au/service-provider/xdsl/vx220-g2v/).
    This Wifi 5 TP-Link Deco M5 Mesh Wi-Fi Router System (3-Pack) should be compatible with my modem, right?

    • It is compatible but the setup varies.

      1. Do you have FTTN, FTTB, FTTC, FTTP, HFC? Check here.
      2. Do you use VoIP on the VX220-G2v?
  • If using Zscaler for work, I would stay away from the Deco. I have returned mine and now using Netgear Orbi with no issue.


    • I've been using Zscaler on my Deco M9 setup for 12 months without any issues ever, might have gotten lucky but never knew of this issue until you linked :)

      • Same here, Zscaler behind M5 setup. I have even jumped on the ZDX ( Zscaler Digitial Experience ) platform to check out performance and see nothing to bad.

        @ropakimi - I am on Zscaler Tunnel 1.0 ( 80/443 only ) but you might have been Tunnel 2.0 ( All traffic/ports ) which might make a difference. When I migrate myself to Tunnel 2.0 it might make a difference.

  • Just be aware that if you have kids the parental controls on these are next to useless once they figure out they can get around them by spoofing their device's MAC address (especially on Windows machines). This could be easily fixed by having a MAC address whitelist and blocking everything else but TP-Link can't be bothered implementing a feature that is common on most other mesh routers. A real shame, because otherwise they have worked very well for me running a smart home with 40+ wifi devices connected.

  • X20 for $40 more is much better deal - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/14593725/redir.
