I have waxed lyrical about the benefits of mesh Wi-Fi systems for home users this year. When I first implemented a mesh system it resolved all the issues with black spots around my home and avoided the issues of running multiple routers from different brands. As much as I love mesh Wi-Fi, on the constant…

TP-Link Deco P9 Mesh Wi-Fi with Powerline Review – A big improvement of the Deco P7

Padding out the TP-Link Deco line up is the new Deco P9 which is a step up compared to the P7 I reviewed earlier in the year. While this sounds like it should offer all the features the M9 does, they are not quite like for like in the full feature set. Deco P9 vs…

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 Tri-band Mesh System (RBK852) announced & it comes with some serious early adoptor tax

I love Netgear, I love Mesh Wi-Fi, and I love Wi-Fi 6. So I have been quite excited about the new RBK852 WiFi 6 Tri-band Mesh System from Netgear, however, you should expect some sticker shock. If you thought WiFi 6 routers were expensive then the RBK852 is going to make your toes curl. Early…

Nokia Beacon 1 Review – Nokia enters the Mesh Wi-Fi Market

I have reviewed quite a lot of mesh Wi-Fi systems, and somehow the existence of the Nokia Beacon has eluded me. The Nokia Beacon 1 launched at the start of July and is currently only available in the US. The Nokia Beacon 3 launched at some point this year but appears to have had so…

Netgear Orbi Outdoor Satellite Review (RBS50Y)

One of the great things about Netgear Orbi (and other mesh wi-fi systems too) is the ability to expand the system to broaden the range. Unlike old Wi-Fi extenders you don’t suffer the same level of performance degradation with a Mesh network, so it is possible to expand the system to be as big as…

Following my recent review of the excellent D-Link COVR-2202 Mesh Wi-Fi system, I started thinking about what were the most affordable options on the market. The COVR-2202 is great, but it costs well over £200, as does the Netgear RBK23, and these are only mid-range options, the Netgear RBK53 with three satellites will set you…

Mesh Wi-Fi is the best thing to happen to Wi-Fi in years and solves most of the issues consumers have with their Wi-Fi, and that is poor range or black spots around the home.
