    Works PERFECTLY in our Big home

    I was having some occasional issues with our Google mesh wifi system, and frustrated with some of the interface limitations, so decided to try this system after looking at reviews for lots of products on the internet. I bought this system some time ago and have been waiting a couple months to see how they would perform.I’m please to say this is the best system I have used in many years. As an electronics engineer maybe I am a bit too critical of products, but I have nothing to critique so far about the TPLink mesh wifi system. Frankly, I used to not be very fond of TPLink products, but I think they have gotten much better in the last few years.Getting to the details: I have a LOT of wifi connected products in the home. 74 devices to be exact and the house is 4200 square feet. These 3 units are more than enough to get complete coverage in the house as well as the patio areas on both sides of the house.I especially like the smart phone interface compared to my previous Google Mesh and the eero system I had before that. It lets me assign some devices to a specific mesh unit which is nice because some competitor systems seem to occasionally connect a device farther away from one that is closer which results in a worse connection. This TPLink system does not have that issue. I also like the fact that I can assign any device to specifically connect to either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz. A couple other systems I have tried in the past wouldn’t allow it.I haven’t yet tried the “HomeShield” subscription to other features that might be helpful for a decent price. I’m not sure I need those upgrade features yet. I wanted to try the system with the upgrade first to see how it works. I’ll probably try the 30-day free trial later on since there are some features of interest.With the separate backhaul communication between mesh units, I’ve been seeing really high bandwidth rates without a single dropout. Example, we have 3 TVs that regularly stream 4K content with two of those TVs doing it at the same time. Other devices are high resolution WiFi security cameras connected along with music streaming and all of the other oddball devices I have like light controllers, robot vacuums, appliances, smoke detectors, energy monitors, shades, phones, iPads, garage door openers, sprinklers, a piano, the car, and a bunch of other things I likely forgot.Bottom line is that everything stays connected without issues and I have yet to have a device that didn’t connect or see and hangup with the system. I also got a recent software update that installed seamlessly. I surely missed mentioning some other features.

    Impressive improvement in speed and coverage

    We have a long house (4,000 sq. feet) and because my modem was at one end we have used range extenders to reach TVs and computers at the other end. My son works in sales from home and required a faster and more stable connection than he had in his office at the far end from my modem. We decided to install a mesh WIFI system and chose TP-link’s Deco S4 (3-pack). Once up and running (easy) we weren’t able to achieve a faster speed than the range extenders. Although, things were slightly better in coverage and stability. After reading a lot about do’s and don’ts of mesh WIFI systems we decided to return the Deco S4 and get the Deco AX3000 X55 (3-pack) system. Here are the early results: 1. My son’s speed more than doubled to 535 Mbps, which is almost the same speed I get being directly connected to the modem at the other end of the house. In other words the rated speed that our ISP sold us. 2. The TVs haven’t buffered even though we use streaming exclusively on 3 sets. Plus we have mobile phones and other assorted gadgets that use the internet. 3. My wife’s PC, even farther than my son’s, is getting almost double the speed (145 Mbps) that it got with the S4 and triple the speed she received from the range extenders. 4. Very easy setup via the mobile app.Here are some of the reasons why the newest mesh system is better from a technical perspective: 1. The AX3000 is rated at double the speed of the S4 (at less than double the cost on Amazon using their coupon). 2. The AX3000 has a maximum of 6500 sq. feet of coverage vs. 5500 sq. feet for the S4. 3. The AX3000 is WIFI 6 vs. WIFI 5 on the S4. This means a 50% increase in “streams” providing greater functionality and speed because there are more paths to the base station router. One of the x55s (base station) sits next to our ISP’s modem and the other two are set up as satellites at the other ends of the house. Satellites can be connect via ethernet cable (called a backhaul) if you have cable already installed in some rooms. This should increase the throughput. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do this. 4. The AX3000 is smaller than the S4 and thus doesn’t stand out as much. This is not a technical issue, however we plan to mount two of the units on the wall with wall mounts that can be purchased separately. The S4 is almost twice as tall so may tip out of the mounts easier. Plus the cord and charger is white rather than black so doesn’t stand out as much. 5. Other systems are faster and cover more area, but are significantly more expensive for a 3-pack. Also most use WIFI 6E, which we don’t need because we’re in a single family home. I understand WIFI 6E comes with those systems because it’s good for people in large apartment buildings. It’s not faster but does have a third band in the 6 Ghz range which WIFI 6 does not.Update: I have had trouble connecting our solar panel gateway to the new system. Our solar system installer suggested connecting to the 2.4 Ghz band because or WIFI is now mesh. I didn’t know we had that capability until I read an earlier post by another happy user. I will now research how to do this.

    Good for large range coverage, but you sacrifice speed

    I bought this because my house is 3 stories (5400 sqft), so we need a lot of range coverage and I have a lot 6 siblings. We have probably over 50 devices on the network at one time.I noticed that with more devices on the network, even though the speed test said we were getting 500+ Mbps, things still seemed to load slow. So I figured we might need a better router to spread out the devices and allow less congestion.Installation was super easy, the app is intuitive and clean, but after everything was set up, when I went to do a speed test, I noticed I was only getting speeds of about ~60 Mbps. The device states that it supports up to 1gb speeds, but I wasn’t getting that and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it even through speaking with support. My original router (middle floor/middle house) was giving me speeds of 500+ Mbps diminishing to ~300 Mbps on the other floors, which is still better than what the mesh system was giving me.Webpages and other things felt even slower to load than before and I realized, maybe this isn’t the product for me but a single more powerful router may be. I will be returning this and doing more research.

    Whole House Wireless that ACTUALLY Works!

    I have Gigabit service coming into the house, from Spectrum, and used their router and network extenders. Over the past year, nothing but issues with connectivity. And using those extenders: forget it! They never stayed connected long enough. Even over WiFi I was getting at best, 50Mbps signal into my PS5.Switching to Deco, I am now utilizing the standard-issue Spectrum cable modem and the 3-unit Deco kit. I now RELIABLY get 400-700MBps speed in a 2 floor home. I’ll watch the app as devices switch automatically and seamlessly between Deco units. This system just WORKS! I’ll never rent another router from an ISP again. Highly recommend!Update: Shout out to Mharvic at TP Link Tech Support for helping me with the initial set up. Be sure to follow EVERY direction. When the app says unplug modem, even though you did it at step one, do it again.

    Works great

    I am a senior that technically challenged. I bought 2 pacs of 3 satellites, totaling 6. I never installed a WiFi system before so I went to Best Buy’s, Geek Squad to hire them to install the system. They were busy and couldn’t give me a price to install it. With reservations I decided to try and install it myself. It took me about an hour to read the instructions and set up my Ethernet switch and first unit. Much to my surprise it worked great. Same speed that was coming out of my modem was coming out of my Wi-Fi unit. The next 5 units were easy and quick to install. Great Wi-Fi inside and outside of my home. Been using the system for a few weeks now and everything is working great.

    New version x55 pro lacking all basic features

    Alright, I purchased the x55 pro for its 2×2.5Gbps ports. It has significantly enhanced the speed compared to my old setup. Attached pic shows speed test on my phone when sitting next to one node. Around the house my phone range from over 300 at least (my internet speed currently is 940Mbps but I’m upgrading the plan in a few weeks). I also grabbed a multi-gig switch (if you plan to keep your internet plan below 1Gbps, there’s no need to opt for the pro version). One major drawback is that it currently lacks all the features available in the Deco app, including basic ones like an IoT network and band selection for specific devices. Additionally, you’re unable to designate a preferred node for a particular device. I reached out to customer support via chat, but they couldn’t provide any information on when the firmware would be updated to include these missing features, that’s why I’m debating between 3 vs 4 stars.

    INCREDIBLY easy to set up, and super simple/super-stable home mesh network!!

    I originally had a separate Netgear cable modem, a Netgear WIFI Router, and another separate Netgear extender. All functioned OK, but would occasionally randomly drop signal and Netgear’s built in bloatware seriously slowed down network speed. I have Gigabit service coming into the house, and over WiFi I was getting at best, 50Mbps signal into my XBox Series X.Switching to Deco, I only use the standard-issue Spectrum cable modem and the 2-unit Deco kit. I now RELIABLY get 400-700MBps speed in the same house with one Deco unit near the front and one in the back. Devices switch automatically and seamlessly with no performance drop-offs or manual setup required. Adding additional Deco WIFI units is super simple, and once online, they automatically “see” each other and they just, well, WORK. Love them and would 100000% recommend them to anyone with a lot of WiFi devices, Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and various other smart home devices.I’m a Deco convert for life!! 🙂

    TP Link – Stepped-UP their GAME!

    KUDOS to TP Link’s “apparently” New & HIGHLY IMPROVED Engineering/Software Team. It has been 10 + years since I last purchased any TP Link WiFi/wireless Networking devices. Their hardware was always OK, but their sofware and functionality was never better than OK. After looking over all reviews of the competition, the TP Link Meshing DECO series seemed quite high and for a 3-Node system the pricing was good. All I can say is W-O-W! THIS TP-Link 3-Node MESH Networking system ROCKS. I have a 1700 Sq Ft 2-story home that is much longer than wide. My guess is that the 3rd Node(DECO Unit) “may” not even be necessary but for $50 bucks more, not only do I not have ANY slow /dead spots, but outside on my large wrap-around patio the WiFi signal is just like being inside. The new software app works like a charm! The only real set-up is the first Node and one that is successful, the remaining nodes are basically “Plug & Play!” This 3-node system says it will cover up to 6500 sq, ft. I don’t doubt that. at roughly 2000 sq ft. my smartphone internet speed is almost as fast as my hard-wired ethernet connected desktop HP PC! Just DO it!!!Just as an aside (nothing to do with the TP-Link DECO system), when you set up your new network name (SSID) do NOT use the same name as your existing network IF ANY of the existing devices(especially a cable modem with Wi-Fi capabilities) will continue to be part of your WiFi system. THIS will cause an issue where your wireless devices logging on to the network will not know which (same name) network to log onto if both have the exact same name and will register a problem. Definitely CHOOSE A NEW SSID NAME, AND THE FIRST INSTALLATION STEP SHOULD BE DISABLING THE EXISTING WIRELESS NETWORK!

    Nice upgrade

    Decided to replace my Deco S4s for no big reason, other than a few features the S4 didn’t have like IPV6 and better handling of my gigabit service.I was not concerned about the speed so much, although this is faster. Coverage was not an issue either, having a square 1200 sqft house. Handles my 30 TP-Link smart products with no complaints.The Deco app is easy to use, and set-up was easy and quick. I reset and installed one S4 router in the garage for the heck of it, and gave the other two to a friend with an S4 system. It took him about 10 minutes to add both.I am very TP-Link centric as all their products are good quality and easy to install.

    At the Farm

    I bought and installed over a month ago. With that being said, it is installed on a tower about 20ft up and not protected at all. I opted for the POE option so I didn’t have to run an additional power cable. This has been put through the test. Between nasty storms, and very hot days in direct sunlight. It has not skipped a beat!! I am very happy with this purchase. When you are outside, it has amazing range. I think I will try and provide some shade to help with longevity since that is a easy task.The app is super nice and easy to use with plenty of features.I will be buying another one to help get the wifi into my shop (Steel building) that is about 60ft away. When all doors are shut, it has a harder time which is understandable being steel.Definitely worth the money!

    Our tech was amazing

    We owe everything to the product tech, Jayson De Mesa. He was on the phone with me for over 1 1/2 hours. The product is awesome, once it’s up and running. We were under the impression it was a plug in and go type of product. It was anything but that we found. The first time I called the tech just didn’t have the patience so I threw in the towel and was boxing the product up to return it and then my phone rang and it was Jayson calling to offer his assistance and he took the time to troubleshoot the many things that needed to be done and now that the system is up and working, we are extremely satisfied with the product. He was super knowledgeable and I am super grateful for his help as I am the least tech savvy person.The main reason We bought the product was to add more RING cameras to our security system. But it has given us so much more. Great product!

    A noticeable improvement over my old system

    I installed 2 units yesterday in my home, and so far I’m quite pleased. The coverage is substantially better than my old system, response seems faster, and the “drop outs” in my TV streaming have apparently disappeared. I had a little trouble with the installation (due mainly to errant typing on my iPhone with my thick fingers – also, people installing should be aware of the technical parameters of their internet service) , but got it done eventually. I’ve had problems with other WiFi devices recently, but these units are as promised.

    If you need just one

    If you have a small house and just need one Deco, keep in mind that the unit needs to be Ethernet connected to the gateway. (In a mesh setup, the router closest to the gateway needs to be directly connected to the gateway.) Our gateway is on one side of the house, so coverage is a little thin on the other end where the Deco needs to go. But the house is small so we don’t need a bunch of routers. In our situation I was able to connect it to the switch in our TV room and it works fine. So one router can work through a switch connected to the gateway. Named it the same as our gateway so coverage is strong and seamless.

    Super fast Wifi-6, easy install, good choice to upgrade your home to a mesh system!

    Thanks to Prime Day it was time for me to finally upgrade my home network. I was looking for a reasonably priced WiFi-6 mesh system with 3 stations (1 main + 2 satellites), at least AX3000 speeds, and a price tag of up to $300. It came down to two choices: the Eero 6+ and what I chose instead, the TP-Link Deco X55. Both systems had similar specs, but I liked how the TP-Link Deco had 3x Gigabit ethernet ports per satellite (the Eeeros have just 2). That meant I could wire each satellite in a daisy-chain configuration for a wired backhaul AND connect the 3rd ethernet plug to the gigabit switches I had at each satellite location. This meant that all of my hard-wired devices could stay hardwired, while adding mesh WiFi at full speeds (no bandwidth reserved for transmission thanks to the backhaul).Installation was quick and easy – I simply turned off my cable modem, disconnected my previous router, installed one of the Deco X55’s in its place (in my bedroom), and turned everything back on. After downloading the TP-Link Deco app I had an internet connection set up and good to go in less than 5 minutes! Once that was working, I added the other two Deco’s into the mix – one in the living room and one in the family room – with all three forming an almost perfect triangle for whole-home coverage. In less than 15 minutes after opening the box, I had a fast, Wifi-6 mesh system in my home.I had been using an older AC1900 router for almost 10 years now and back then it was just fine – but with more and more smart home devices being added to my home, it no longer was enough. I have a medium-sized amount of smart home devices (around 50 devices including hubs) and on occasion, I’d experience signal dropouts on some of the farther cameras, and other devices would sporadically go offline/online at random. With the X55 mesh installed, all of my issues disappeared! My smart cameras used to show a signal strength of between 80% (indoor cameras) down to around 55% (outdoor cameras). With the TP-Link Deco mesh in place, the signal strength changed to 100% indoor and 95% outdoor – a major improvement for sure. Pulling up live and recorded footage from the outdoor camera is so much quicker now. All of the other indoor smart devices I have all show 98-100% signal strength. Needless to say, this was a definite upgrade!As for my rating, I give it a solid 4-stars. There are a few small details that keep me from giving it a full 5-stars: some missing features that I had with my old router. One of them is being able to bulk reserve IPs by entering them into the app beforehand; with the TP-Link Deco, the device has to be connected to the network FIRST (with whatever DHCP IP address the Deco gives it), then you have to go into the app to reserve it with a static IP. I would rather have the more common table where you just enter each Mac address, static IP, and device name and it’s done. Another missing feature is being able to have at least 2 separate SSIDs (not including a guest SSID). With the Deco you can only have one main SSID and one isolated guest SSID.Finally, to see some speed numbers I ran speed tests using both fast.com and speedtest.com, and the day before installing the mesh system I had an average internet speed of around ~260Mbps. The day after I installed the TP-Link mesh system my speeds went up to well over 490Mbps! Downloading is a lot faster, and streaming is super snappy as well.So in the end, I am very happy with my purchase of the TP-Link Deco X55 Wifi6 mesh system. Aside from the small feature complaints above, everything is awesome! I no longer have devices going offline/online. My internet speed has almost doubled (my old router was the bottleneck!) and streaming seems quicker as well. If you are looking for a mesh system to upgrade your current home network to the current WiFi6 standards, I would say that this is definitely a good buy!

    I thought I liked this, until I got an Archer AX3000

    I owned this from July 2022 until April 2023 – so about 9 months. It performed admirably during that time, but I found it a little hard to set up, even using the app. I eventually got it connected, and it performed trouble-free during its life, but I was never able to get the full 500 Mbit/s I was paying for, no matter how close my devices were to the Deco (and, I have a small house and didn’t need satellite devices – just the Deco “base station” itself was enough to adequately cover the 1800 sq ft of my abode). That said, the best I was able to get in terms of speed was about 400-450 Mbit/s.When I originally purchased it, it was not possible to force a device to connect to the 2.4 GHz band or to give the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz radios different names so you knew what you were connected to. It simply connected using its own “smart” algorithm. That was since changed via a firmware update and the device improved over time in terms of flexibility. It never lost connection with either my cable modem or my devices, and the only real complaint was that it was a bit of a hassle to connect – even using the app – and it just never could deliver the full 500 Mbit/s speeds I was paying for.Why did I stop using it? Simple: I needed a router with a USB port so I could connect a 6TB external hard drive I recently purchased. The Archer AX3000 had that capability; the Deco X55 did not. In hindsight, I am glad it didn’t have the USB port because I never would have discovered the superior performance of the Archer AX3000, which I have reviewed separately here on Amazon.It served me faithfully for 9 months, was inexpensive, and looked nice. But now, it’s time to find a new home for it so off to eBay I go with a listing for it.

    Solved My Connectivity Issues

    This is easily the best system for your money!My house isn’t huge, but it is old. I swear the walls are lined with lead or something. Anyways, getting WiFi signal anywhere upstairs was a pain. I tried range extenders that kind of helped, but didn’t give me anywhere close to the speed I was looking for.This system solved all my issues. I more than tripled the speeds upstairs. My smart outdoor cameras that once showed “weak signal” are now perfect.Set-up was a breeze. The app is straight to the point and anyone can understand.If you’re looking to fix your WiFi troubles, this is the system for you.

    Deco Mesh System delivers excellent speed and coverage

    I had a Tp-link duel band WI-Fi 6 router that worked well with an RE 315 extended er. My home has two levels totaling 2400 sq feet. I upgraded to the Deco WIFI mesh whole home system when it was available.After using the Deco a year now it definitely is providing superior coverage and speed. I have a little over a half acre of property and the mesh system provides coverage outside the house. Very nice for listening to music when we are sitting on the patio. Recently I upgraded my modem. I had trouble linking the Deco with the new modem, so I contacted Tp-link Technical support and Hanson Chan was extremely helpful and friendly in assisting me linking the Deco System to the new modem. Thank you Hans and Tp-link for your outstanding product and service.

    what a great product!

    I’ve had wi-fi issues sporadically for years. A friend suggested a TP Link mesh system and this solved my problems 100%.The units look nice and the software for the app is A+. I can easily rename each of my devices connected to each unit. The app shows what devices are on each unit and what TP Link devices are in what room. I have 2 wired connections and the rest are wireless. It also prompted me to allow a system analysis that made some changes to optimize performance. I called TO Link a few times to ask questions and they were prompt, pleasant and knowledgeable. A terrific product!

    Great WIFI Mesh system for the entire house

    I wanted install a mesh WIFI system for the entire house because I was losing signals for connectivity to our cell phones, and other WIFI connections in certain parts of the house and outdoors. My research told me that there are a few systems to replace my current router but I decided on the DECO model by TP-Link, a well respected brand. It also has an outdoor unit that you can purchase separately that links up with the system. The installation of the new system was very easy for the units with the mobile app. The mobile App controls the settings and leads you through the installation. I now have continuous and uninterrupted service throughout the house, no longer need WIFI extenders. A great system for my home.

    Easy to install.

    I still can’t believe I got this new router installed AND how easy it was to do so. I like everything about this mesh router. I highly recommend the TP-Link x55 router. I didn’t even have to talk to their tech support because I got it done with no problems. Amazing – because I am definitely not tech savvy.

    Works well and easy enough to setup

    I like that this has a 3 Network jacks in back of each of them. It helps that I can back haul the wireless signal through ethernet instead of buying the expensive 3 band Mesh Networks. If you don’t backhaul on a 2 band then your wireless download/upload speed can get cut in half.I had the older Google Wifi router that I was replacing these with. The app is quite a bit better. You can add address reservation for certain devices and the software is easy to update (when available) and reboot when needed.The wifi signal seems to be a bit better than the Google Wifi Routers that I had.The biggest gripe that I can see is my Amcrest Cameras would drop off of the network every 15 minutes. I tried to setup a 2.4 ghz Guest Network but this didn’t help. I had to add another router as an access point and add my cameras just to that signal. It seems overkill that I had to do that but I am blaming some of that on Amcrest as well.Another slight issue is it seems after a reboot that the network is fairly slow to show up. I was having some issues where I had to power cycle my network and rebooting from the app didn’t help. Once I unplugged the power to two of the base stations then it restored my wireless network.

    Much better choice than Eeros, but not a 5 star product

    First tried an Eeros mesh, which never worked even after a consult with “support.” Decided to try this based on high reviews, the current deal being offered by Amazon, and assurances that the TPLink works seamlessly via ethernet backhaul. Like many other products, this one is “dumbed down” with no owner’s manual and complete reliance on the app, which is used to promote purchase of additional products and services. There was no mention of ethernet backhaul in the support section of the app, but I did eventually find a blurb under the section titled Advanced Features. Unfortunately the translation in that section didn’t play well and the troubleshooting part was unclear, nevertheless I was able to establish a connection via ethernet backhaul without any real issues. The strange thing was that my speed via EB was about 50MBS but if I unhooked from the CAT5 and ran wirelessly the speed jumped to 200MBS; I was expecting close to the 300MBS that I get via ethernet right at the cable modem. Maybe my CAT5 cable isn’t capable of really high speed. At any rate, I’m getting 300MBS proximal to the base unit, and 200MBS at the far reaches of my house which is plenty and much faster than what I got with my router and extender. Interestingly, the TPLink app which “monitors performance” shows that I have a strong signal at the satellite units and a speed of 20MBS, not the 200MBS that I actually am getting(!!??). I also have to gripe about the white color being the only option — it really stands out. I wanted black but all mesh providers seem to be going for the “Apple look” and only offering white, except for one I found that was double the cost of this one. Overall I’m happy with the purchase but it’s not a 5 star product.

    Could use a longer power cord, and some app improvements.

    Pros:Super easy setup. Just follow the instructions.Good power and coverage.Nice astetics.So, . . . It works well and looks good.Cons:1. Comically short power cable. I wanted to put one on top of a bookshelf but the power cable is nowhere near long enough to reach an outlet. Putting a bulky power strip on top of the bookcase was a no-go with the spouse. Forced to put it on a lower shelf where it is basically ‘in the way’ at times.2. Does not appear to be any way to lock a device to a particular node. We had a couple of computers that kept switching between two nodes even though the computers were not moving. While they would automatically switch and keep on working, things like VPN connections or file copies did not like the cut-over. What TP-Link calls “Seamless” switching is not that. There is a noticeable blip. I ended up removing one of the three nodes to lessen the zone overlaps and that seems to have calmed down the computers that were constantly jumping between nodes for no reason. My other option would be to buy a bigger house. The software should have an option to “lock” a device to a specific node if desired. Switching the Mesh Technology setting off seems like it should do that, but it did not. Even with that off, devices would still switch from one node to another even though the device did not physically move at all.My ‘Cons’ are minor.The power cable should be long enough to reach the floor from the top of the average bookcase. – Not just reach the average outlet height, but all the way to the floor in case it needs to plug into a power strip. Right now, it doesn’t do either. I would also like to see the AC adapter be a more compatible shape.The app could use some improvements. What is does have is good. It just needs to provide more options. Locking a device to a node is my primary request. An option for defining static IP reservations would be outstanding, as well.

    Should have bought this a LONG TIME AGO

    I am no techie, so i did not understand really what this mesh would do. I thought it was some sort of signal extender, and it might be. But what it DID do, is raise my internet speed from 35MB now to 600MB. I would and DO consider that a heck of an improvement.I have a signal all over the house, and the stuff on the edge of the signal is now well within range and again at high speed. The small pain of putting devices onto the new router is small potatoes in comparison to the service these pods are providing. Of course right when i got them up and running we had a power failure for 5 seconds. That caused the whole enchilada to reset, but after 2-3 minutes back to steady green lights and fast service. Grab these, they are worth it even if like me you dont know how the magic happens

    Stopped working after less than a week [Updated]

    I found out recently that the problems I encountered were likely due to a laptop dock creating a broadcast storm when the laptop was turned off so I revised my score to reflect my experience outside of there that.Initially I was very happy with the Deco. Setup was fast and easy, the app was easy to use and offered a lot of great features that were included without a subscription (looking at you eero).Everything was great for about five days, then my main Deco unit dropped my Internet. I went through the normal steps of rebooting the Decos, rebooting my modem, etc. etc. I didn’t have a way to check to see if was my modem or my Decos so when it reconnected after about an hour I chalked it up to an actual outage.Until today. At pretty much the exact same time, same thing. Main Deco dropped my Internet connection. This time, I had a laptop that I could connect to my modem and it wasn’t an outage or my modem, it was my Decos. No amount rebooting, resetting, configuration changes would fix the problem. I got it to connect a couple of times but it would disconnect soon after and then one of the other Decos stopped working.TP-Link’s technical support documentation is awful. When I’m trying to fix my wifi network, the last thing I want to see is “If still no luck” on a technical support page. I really do miss the days of being able to manage my network without my cell phone.My wife and I both work from home and don’t have the time or patience to fight issues like this so I sent the units back for a refund. It was incredibly frustrating because I have researched mesh wifi systems for weeks and TP-Link is very highly reviewed. For what it’s worth, I also had a wireless USB adapter from TP-Link that would constantly drop connection.Based on the reviews it seems like a lot of people are happy with their Deco systems. I am definitely not one of them, and won’t be purchasing anything from TP-Link again.

    Pretty easy to setup

    I was a bit skeptical about these MESH systems as I was used to multiple WAP points with different IDs… but I thought I would give this a try.The setup was fairly easy with one exception. Since I has ethernet access at every point where a module was going to go…. I wanted to make sure it set up the system with ethernet assist (i.e. they were linked via ethernet).With 3 modules one of them kept defaulting to wireless linking to other modules. I finally figured out I needed to go into advanced settings and select ACCESS POINT mode instead of router mode. After that change, they all linked up properly.Have had it about 3 weeks now and overall pleased.I would like additional option in the firmware to keep some devices from connecting to a certain access point module. I know you can set the preferred module but not the module to never connect to. (For some reason my wifes laptop occasionally connected to a distant module in the attic instead of the one 10 feet away).As I said overall I am happy with the unit(s).

    Easy to set up secure WiFi and Ethernet

    I bought this product on a very timely flash sale. I am a therapist that works remotely from home. When my router went out, I had to find a router I could afford, that was secure, capable of high-speed, high data for and easy to set up. I specialize in trauma therapy. This router did not disappoint. In fact I have the ability now to move from my desk to other comfortable seating without dragging my ethernet cord around the house, meaning better for my body, in turn, better for the clients I serve! The app to manage router is easy to understand and use. If you’re on a budget and have the need for digital speed and security, I’d recommend this product!

    Very Pleased!!!

    I tried two other Wi-Fi extenders including a TP link AC1900. I have T-Mobile 5G Internet and my Roku TVs were consistently losing connection almost every morning. Had to reconnect their Wi-Fi to watch them. Once I installed the DECO AX 3600 mesh system, all my connection problems went away and I am getting consistently between 300 and 400 megabytes per second connection speed on my laptop via Wi-Fi. Each of my TV’s was able to be plugged into one of the Ethernet ports on these extenders which I’m sure adds to their stability. I’ve been using this setup for about a week now and absolutely no issues so far. Extremely pleased!

    Great coverage, simple setup

    After receiving a gift certificate from my girls, I bought this mesh system to replace my Linksys router, which had served me well, but a single router left me with some significant dead spots in our 2200 square foot single story home with 2 decks. What a difference! I set up a “triangle’ inside the home with one unit in the Living Room (internal wall and up high), another in a spare bedroom (internal wall on top of a dresser), and the Master BR that was on a desk (corner of two outside walls). Signal strength was well above 200mbps in all areas inside and on both decks. Setup was VERY simple. A good purchase at a Prime Day price. If these had a USB port, it would have been perfect.

    What’s not to like

    I have had many routers in my WiFi years and went to TP Link 4 years ago for the first time. I bought the AC 1750 and loved it. I had to call tech support a few times and got great support. Well, my extender unit died and I decided to go to a mesh unit.I bought the DECO from TP and I am not disappointed. Very easy to setup and the app made it a breeze. The presentation in the box made you feel like you bought something from Apple.We have a continuous signal throughout our 2300 sq. ft home. No lapses at all. Very strong signal and no buffering in my streaming of movies and shows. We now have signals in areas that our extender could not provide.I love TP Link products. I also purchased a switch from TP Link to handle the connections needed to connect to the DECO. Everything works really well. I’ll buy it again and again.

    Another great TP Link product

    I’ve had a few TP Link product before. My experience is far better with TP Link than products I’ve had from Netgear and Linksys in the past. They’ve always been reliable, reasonably priced, a solid feature set and easy to configure. This Mesh WiFi setup replaced a TP Link access point that didn’t provide coverage out as far as my detached garage. House is two stories with a basement.I placed one unit centrally located on the first floor, one on the second floor and another in the garage. I have hard-wired Ethernet in the house, connected to a gigabit switch. The garage has a TP link POE adapter, that has provided bullet-proof operation for several years. The Mesh unit is connected to that POE adapter, essentially providing a hard-wired connection to the switch.Now I have great WiFi coverage everywhere in the house, in the garage, and outside around the house, too. All in, there are about 25 WiFi devices connected to this Mesh network.Easy and fast setup with an iOS app, totally reliable operation. What else could you ask for?If I could change anything about the product, would be to have Power Over Ethernet (POE) so that the individual power supplies at each unit wouldn’t be needed.

    App NG, reviewed both models purchased, X55, & AXE5400 (3 packs)

    04/05/2023: First I would recommend yo FIRST i WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU PURCHASE DIFFERENT COMPANY ROUTER.Pros: Nice looking, delivered in a box. Streaming has had no issues unless the TiVo Ethernet is working.My broadband speed is at 200MBS, When I had 400, I got 3, when I got 3, I got 2, guess what I get now?between 20-147 MBPS. Now I use Speedtest.net by ookla ( for years)I was reluctant to install a Mesh system being the 2.4ghz requirements for accessories. But I had an Archer C10, with about 65 connections and I looked one day and saw 20 was the number then suggested. Surprisingly it worked for several years. I only bought the Mesh when I saw how many connections it would support.So I set up the guest network as a dedicated 2.4ghz. Now every time I run a scan or network optimization it tells me that my guest network is enabled and should be disabled.Like you will see below, the system is very flawed. If you travel and leave your home to automation your time away will be ruined. It may show something off that’s on but since it shows off you can’t see it.One of the worst things is items constantly being dropped are outdoor lights ( in the soffit so still under 15-20ft. from any Deco, the other being Ring Cameras. Now my main concern first about the cameras is if a ring camera goes off line the camera actually blinks a white/blue light indicating you aren’t on line. So If I am a thief and looking at blocks and I see a camera blinking and the same the next day I would think nobody’s home because usually it would be re-connected. When a outdoor light ( not always the same one)is not working is just another indicator of an issue. I would say simple install which it mostly is except when you have to reboot or update firmware and the Deco’s (X55) reboot one doesn’t go green. ( waited 3 hours) so i went to that Deco and it has 3 Ethernet connections so I unplug the connections and remove and reinsert the power cable it finally goes green and I plug in the cables, it goes red again but after a few minutes it went green. ( right before I unplugged it again).My home is two stories and a basement. it is approx. 2000 sq ft of interior usable space. I have a Deco in the three rooms upstairs(1 XE pro 75 and 2 X55), (not in the bathroom) and two on the main floor at both ends of the house1&1 and another in the basement(XE75Pro)1/29/23 Crap. Don’t bother to change the Deco descriptions to what the item actually is because it will drop them, change the name to a generic HS103 (tp- link plug)or Ring camera(s) or exterior lighting.this 9am I had 71 clients with about 10 not renamed. This evening I had 45 clients, from there I went to the item, blocked it, then unblocked it (it refreshes sometimes) NG. I turned off power to the lights and back on and I’m missing 6 of 10. I’m missing 5 Ring cameras , and 5 tp link mini plug not on any deco not on any block list and not on the complete network connection table. By 7pm nothing changed. 1.5 out of 5 stars App NG, Drops clients, changes names items)Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 11, 2023Style: AXE5400 Pro, 3-packVerified Purchasethe app is inaccurate. the deco drop off. If you change the name like I did to know what is what and then it gets dropped and LOSES THE NAME. So I have to go back to the MAC id of the item to rename the device only to reset immediately, a few minutes after, and hours later as well. when things go “off line” which is difficult for power outlets as they are powered. Cams Ring get dropped and do not connect back, you have to go the the list of “offline” and clear the items and THEN they re-connect. Some of the items that drop do re-connect but those are hardwired and its beyond me how a computer plugged in can go off line.You might think I have a huge house, its about 2000sq of living space. I have three of these and three X55 deco as well so you see I’m running six and it drops my doorbell 12 feet away from the deco or access point ( Netgear Nighthawk set to AP mode for 2.4)it does go through a wall consisting of sheetrock, wood 2×4″s ( 1957) plywood, tarpaper, and vinyl siding. and doorbell. The previous Archer C50 ( for 20 connections) I have over 70 at all times so I decided to upgrade. So far I’m mixed because the amount of time, placing, testing, naming, I have spent many hours looking at what is happening. I can work around an app that basically sucks for anything really necessary if the errors were consistent but they are not and therefore UNRELIABLE. I bought at Christmas so I Have until 1/31 to return and I will, I will also order another set of both to see if it’s the units but I don’t think so. Perhaps I will order the BE33000 in March and see if its any better as I can do another return cycle if the replacements don’t improve the quality of the device. If you are looking for an APP that is important to you , don’t buy theseYou also cannot specify a Deco for a WiFi item. it connects, but it connects to Decos that it connects to even though the AXE are backhauled and the A55 are hardwired to the network as well.So you can block it and unblock it and see if it connects to the Deco in the same room or another part of the house.Another annoying thing is it shows for my Ring cameras, my TP-Link mini plugs, and two Echo’s as hardwired. If anyone can find an Ethernet port on my camera & plugs you are better than me.

    Great App and router

    I love the whole system I used it wired throughout the property though. I also love the fact that it had 3 ethernet port though I wished it had more. The app is amazing. If you sign onto the app and it’s blank or not showing much like all the other mesh try login in online or on another phone. It happened when I originally signed on my s22 ultra and I could barely do much on the app though everything worked fine. Then I signed in on my work iPhone and I had access to all the features. The comment probably fix this bug by now I hope. Lastly I hope that they holes in case you wanted to prop or keep them high on the wall.

    beware the firmware update ( per tech you have to do it , and once done , cant be undone)

    I got the AX3000, (x55) to speed up the network, ( had an DecoS4r , giving me 190 Mbps on good days) on first installing the X55 , I got a download speed of 577 Mbps on speed test By Ookla , ( have gigabit from WOW) it was nice , then got a notification on app that a firmware update was available , so did that , and on rechecking download speed was at 88 Mbps (within 1 hr of getting the 577 Mbps ( same hardware)Email support does not work , but TP link has a nice live person chat support.I took 2 sessions of about 1.5 hr each , but now I am up to about 450 Mbps.to save everybody time here are the steps that helped ( on latest version of App)1-deco app, click more (bottom RHS)2-next click on advanced3-next click on NAT forwarding4-disable UPNP5-disable SIP ALG6-back at he main page of app top purple rectangle QoS , click7-edit any speed in total bandwidth to download 1000 (max) and upload 1000 MBps8- remove any priority devices.Hope this helps and saves you 3 frustrating hours with tech support , they really try to help , but I gues have to go through some algorithm or something , and don’t get to the point

    excellent product and welcome here in the home!

    Wi-Fi signal in our home was a 3 at best and with the addition of the DECO unit’s it is a 10+ now…simple to set up, plug and look at the app, connection in no time and as each added the signal in the house improved! TV’s stream with no waiting, phones, laptops all down load and upload at amazing numbers and their app is useful each day! I have mine set for a 3AM reboot of the system each Monday morning to rid the “packets” that collect on the lines and it runs smooth!! Terrific product and that is from a 73 year old NON computer expert!

    First mesh

    This is my first mesh system and have nothing other than my previous routers to compare it with. I’ve only had this for about a month and I can say that I have seen great improvements as far as connectivity and speed. I have about 30 devices that use to have issues connecting to my router. Now with the mesh system, there are no issues, all devices connect and are assigned the best band type. The setup was nice and easy, downloaded the app, plugged in each unit and added it to my network through the app. I wasn’t really excited about setting up and managing via a phone app, but I’m starting to like it. Last point, the speeds, I use to get around 40 to 50 downloads and since I’ve installed this system I am now getting 150-170 downloads. The only issue I have is with the connected network. While the Wi-Fi seems to be fast, the speeds when connected via ethernet seem to be slow. Maybe some setting I need to work with but as of yet, I have not found anything. Pretty satisfied for now but will continue to monitor through out the next few months.

    Big difference

    I purchased this after wasting my money on the Google Nest Pro. This is so much better. In the app you can assign 2.4 or 5ghz for each device (or have it auto), coverage is phenomenal throughout my entire house without lag. I was rebooting my google nest pro daily from lags. Hate that I wasted that money (waited past the return period waiting for an update from Google that never happened), but glad to have found something else that seems to be on a much higher level.

    Works great, just not with Spectrum ISP

    This router system is amazing when its working. Super easy to setup and add additional units. The app is pretty user friendly and easy to use as well.Only reason i give 4/5 stars is that it does not work to well with Spectrum internet. Unfortunately, im stuck w sprectrum internet and ever since i installed this router, at least once a day, my internet goes out and modem and router needs to be reset.Something with Spectrums signal causes these routers to go offline and need to be reset frequently so just beware if purchasing these and you have Spectrum.

    great coverage on 200 year old house

    I normally wait a while to write reviews but I have been happy with this decision. I have a 3 story Victorian house with a basement. lots of plaster, walls, and floors to get coverage. I was able to place a device in basement, main level, and second level. Doesn’t seem to have the issues where on a repeater my devices didn’t know what to decide which point to connect to. Also helped with outside coverage. Setup was a breeze with the mobile app.

    A must have

    I am a techno junkie and in IT/programming etc, and I can tell you with all confidence that this is the solution you have been looking for.Great app packed with features such as Wi-Fi optimization and alerts when a new device connects to your network.Easy mesh setup, tons of features baked in with a dns option and full configuration options that will let your inner geek go wild.Range is superior. Ease of connection and QOS options available with priority connections and my favorite, static IPYou are getting a lot for your dollar and I would t recommend anything else.

    Works as advertised!

    First off the router was not easy to install for some reason. However one call to Tech support and Jason De Mesa took care of the install immediately. That is the support you look for but could never seem to find these days.The router seems to be working and extending our internet service across our home inside and out.Thank you

    No more dead zones!

    Wish we would have done this sooner. Our Netgear Nighthawk for some reason would not give us a signal in our bedroom or outside. This system of three fixed all our connectivity issues throughout our 3,000 Sq Ft. house. We have two gamers and two non-gamers. Our speed has significantly increased. These were super easy to set up and have a guest mode that is on 2.4G to support all of our smartplugs. It took less than 15 minutes to set up with zero computer/tech experience. Thrilled with this purchase.

    So easy to setup

    This is super easy to setup. The app makes it easy to setup and monitor what is going on. Seamless setup. So easy your great grandmother could it. Functions amazing. Our internet speed increased by multitudes many times over. Everyone in the house could tell the difference.

    Improved my wifi signal.

    Minor issues with he app upon set up. Tech support was a logo. As for the range listed, that would be a flat out like. I live in a 3000 Sqf house. this is listed at up to a 6500. Maybe if they add a1 or 2 more it could do that. But I ended up with a dead spot. It does cover better than my prior one. But they flat out lie on coverage!

    Quick and easy. Does the job

    My entire house is automated. 4 yrs. now running smooth. It took me a Netgear R8000P Nighthawk, and a Netgear EX8000 Range Extender to keep it running smoothly. NO PROBLEM. Then we get a major series of power surges and the router is no longer recognizing the network password, yada, yada, yada, all the symptoms of a failing router. So, since there is some age on my router I check my options. Since I have SO MANY clients a cheapo router is out of the question. Now I’m looking at the new ORBI system from Netgear for $1000.00 to $1500.00. NO THANKSThis is what I buy. Long story short, this thing is so easy to setup. Use the app, lock on to the main unit/Router, name your network, set the password and security and you are in. Walk to the other side of your house and plug in the other unit : it will synch up. Do the same for the other unit. That’s a wrap Jack !I get over 450 Mbps on a Galaxy S10 so I’m ok. My 2 desktops are hardwired.REMEMBER WiFi 6 is tricky when you try to pair things, your main network will be a combo of 2.4 and 5G technology. When you get a signal from the main network it varies, it generally seeks the fastest which means 5G. If you have a device which DEMANDS 2.4G to pair you run into problems pairing.Therefore if you need dedicated 2.4 ENABLE the guest network, it’s 2.4. The newer devices sometimes will take 2.4 or 5 but maybe not. Just a heads up, if your are having trouble pairing.Sorry for the rant; this unit seems to be solid so far, easy to set up, nice looking, and the price is right.I have come to trust products made by TP LINK. Great quality, good price

    Steady connection, easy to setup, but at a cost of speed

    The 2 year old router that came with my AT&T Fiber GIG service provides my laptop with it’s maximum throughput of about 480mbps. The Deco Mesh slows this down to an average of 180-200mbps. However, the signal is consistent and strong throughout my 3 story home and into my backyard. The ease of use, ease of setup, seamless roaming, and the steady signal are great for me and all my devices spread from the house to the backyard – BUT it would be nice if the wireless speed were not choked down by a 1/3rd.When I need to upload large amounts of files (and large files themselves like web-dumps) for work, that extra 30% speed from the older router is a real time saver. For streaming music, movies, and browsing the internet though, this mesh is fine.In short, I would not recommend this if you need to maintain maximum wireless speed, but I do recommend this for every day use for the average household.

    Top of the line and easy to install

    First off, I have used TP-Link products for a while. I was using two wifi extenders by TP-Link and while they were adequate, I felt that I needed more.I am so glad I ordered the TP-Link Deco AX3000 WiFi 6 Mesh System(Deco X55). I unboxed them one by one and placed them where I thought they would work the best. I placed the first one at my router, followed the instructions on the app (nifty by the way), and was connected in less than 5 minutes. I then plugged in the other two mesh boxes and was connected to those in less than 3 minutes.I am amazed at the difference in speed compared to my wifi extender. And to top it all off, both my living room and bedroom TV’s are now wired connections so I never drop signal while streaming.Am very pleased.

    Great Router/Extender Replacement!

    Pleasantly surprised with TP Link in a world of various options for Mesh systems. Replaced a standard Spectrum router and noticed an immediate improvement.Speeds are doing great, strong connection throughout the entire apartment, and really loving the app which made it super easy to setup.It was recommended as an option for gamers (3 consoles in the house) and not a hiccup yet.Would absolutely recommend as a strong standalone option for anyone looking to upgrade!

    Wow! Really Impressive!

    First off, I ordered this last night, probably after 8PM. I took the free overnight delivery, and it was at my garage by 9am. Unbelievable!I’ve tried a mesh product a few years back, and had terrible results – it was returned within 24 hours of receipt. At the time, I decided to stick with our old slow but reliable cobbled-together solution encompassing wifi access points, powerline ethernet, and so forth. Periodically, I’d need to reboot or power things off and on. Annoying at times, but not the end of the world. Last night however, I succumbed. It was one time too many, and the only way I was able to resolve the issue at hand after two hours of trying my known solutions, was to hit the main power breaker for the house to be sure everything was recycled. Never again.We have many TP-Link products around the house, and always had great success and performance with them. So, I decided to get this Deco package. Not the entry level, but also not top of the line. Within 15 minutes of the package arriving, I was up and running. Set up was a breeze, and all of the connectivity took care of itself. I changed the SSID to my old TP-Link_XXXX and very quickly most everything around the house was reconnecting, no issues whatsoever.We had two different SSIDs. I took a little time and repointed everything that was on the old second NETGEAR SSID to now use the new TP-Link_XXXX as well and life is good! Great performance, better signal strength everywhere, single-platform solution.

    Wow. Super easy and effective upgrade for all skill levels.

    Highly recommended upgrade for those looking to increase their wireless speeds with several connected devices. I thought it wouldn’t be much of an improvement over my DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem/router + Wifi extender, which appeared to be significantly throttling my bandwidth, but mesh Wifi is in fact different and more effective at extending range and providing speed consistency throughout the home.Why I purchased:I decided to try a mesh network as we were having some issues with streaming video quality, such as blurry/pixilated picture on our streaming TV, or buffering/loading on tablets or other devices playing video. A couple suspected reasons for these bandwidth issues were ethernet connected computer(s), use of a Wifi extender, and/or a Wifi security camera at the extent of the Wifi signal range that were reducing the connection quality of the other devices mentioned.Improvements after installing:One main issue I was seeing was an outdoor security camera that had a weak signal was having trouble staying connected. On my smartphone, I also had trouble staying connected to my Wifi when standing next to the camera outside. After installing this system, I have a strong signal throughout the house and near this camera, and speed tests indicate a much faster connection speed than before. There was a +50 Mbps jump in the upstairs far corner of the house. The security camera also remained connected much more reliably. I thought that it wouldn’t be possible to still get a great signal across the house, figuring there was no way connecting through a satellite would provide any kind of decent speed, but it does! My understanding is that the software for this system is able to appropriately manage consistency of connections (through all connection points), so there is in fact an advanced capability over older routers to keep speeds high regardless of distance from the main router.Setup:Installing this system took less than 10 minutes to be fully up and running – very easy plug-and-play. May take 20 or 30 minutes for someone not as savvy.. but between the app and the automatic connections between the routers, it couldn’t have been easier, and very difficult to mess up. Simply connect an ethernet cable from your modem to the main router (each of the 3 units is the same), connect the power cable, then download the app on your smartphone. In the app, after some brief setup steps (includes creating an account), the main step is to connect to the router through the on-screen prompts. From there, you can name your wireless network and password.Connecting the other 2 satellite routers:Place them within a reasonable distance from the main router (~20-30 feet/1-2 rooms away), then plug in to power. Wait ~2 minutes and done! The whole system was live and wirelessly connected through the main router. I couldn’t believe it. In my relatively square-shaped house with the main router on one far side, I was able to place the 3 routers in a triangular pattern, where both satellites are about equal distance from the main router in the middle of the house (about 20 feet each). If your router is in the middle of your home, you may want to place the satellites at either end. I believe a daisy chain (main router at one end like I have, then 2 satellites in a line across the house) is also an option for larger, more expansive homes to maximize the range. I didn’t test the daisy chain, but I’d expect diminishing speed at the far end (although one may be surprised based on my observations so far with the management of the traffic at farther distances). While at the far end of my house and running a speed test, I can’t tell that I’m not connected to my main router as the speed is still very good. The daisy chain may slightly differ, but can’t say for sure.2.4 GHz vs. 5 GHz networks:Wait, you don’t need to set up 2 different networks?? The app basically eliminates all complexity over traditional router setup apps, making the setup choices totally accessible for anyone of any networking skill level. In the app, there is an option to broadcast 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz, 2.4 GHz only, or 5 GHz only. I remained on the first option as I needed support for 2.4 GHz-only devices. Otherwise, 5 GHz would be fine and preferred for everything (supports faster speeds). Apparently, the single network name/password automatically creates a dual band setup, if choosing both. Devices that connect apparently are favored to the optimal band – frankly, I don’t know the details there, but would assume 5 GHz connects first over 2.4, unless only compatible with 2.4.Refurbished vs. New:No difference here. If you want to save a little money, refurbished is a good option for you. The box came with everything in it including an ethernet cable as if it were new. As far as condition, there were a few scuffs on the units, but nothing terrible. I could almost rub off any blemishes. I’m not looking at them anyway.Overall, highly recommended for those looking to make the leap to a mesh network, or debating whether mesh is just all hype (it’s not with this system).

    Works great, too bad ethernet is limited to 1Gbps

    Edit – now they have a “x55 pro” version which does have 2.5 Gbps ports. I recommend getting that version to be more future proof.I got the three pack of Deco X55 to extend Wifi from a main house to a guest house in the back yard. It has been a success and is working well so far.My internet speed from provider (fiber) is quoted at 1Gbps up / 1Gbps down, but it tests at 1.3 Gbps up and down at the modem.Wifi speed from Deco: My modern Wifi devices close to the main deco unit connect at 2-2.4 Gbps to the 5Ghz band and speed tests are a consistent 700-800 Mbps up and down.Things I like: If you have more than 2 deco units they will connect themselves either to the main unit or to another satellite unit depending on which is stronger. So you can have a circle/flower setup, or a linear daisy chain setup. If you let them do this automatically, they will usually choose the best one but not always. Luckily the app lets you manually set how they connect. So I can force them to always “daisy chain” in a line and make sure that they will always connect like: A—-B—-C and never allow C to connect to A. This was crucial to my application because I’m using three units to extend wifi in a linear fashion. So I have one at the front of my house (main), one at the rear of the house (connected to main) , and one in the guest house in the back yard (connected to rear). I get a consistent 150 Mbps up and down in the guest house. So it does lose some speed over the distance and through the two walls, but it’s good enough.It also lets you manually force certain devices to connect to certain deco units and certain bands (2.4 Ghz or 5Ghz). So if you have devices that are in a fixed location, you can tell them to always connect to the closest deco unit. It also has the option for a guest network and an “smart home IOT” network with different names and passwords. The app also lets you check the status of your wifi network remotely and reboot devices, even if you aren’t home.The only disappointment is that all the ethernet jacks on the decos are 1Gbps. So if your modem is faster than 1Gbps and has an ethernet jack to support that, you will be leaving speed on the table. My modem comes with a 2.5Gbps ethernet jack and I wish the deco units did too. It’s silly that my Wifi speed is over 2Gbps but the deco units can only connect to the modem at 1Gbps.

    Simple but Effective. First ever Strong Wifi in 2-Story Home!

    This was a godsend for my 2-story home. We’ve always, always had crappy wifi. I had to get 4 nodes for my home to really be to the level I wanted it to be, but it feels worth it, considering that some wifi routers go for around, say, 300 dollars, which is about what I spent on 4 nodes.They’re easy to hook up, no gimmicks, just the app and the ‘add node’ button after plugging in a node for around… 1 minute of setup.I would highly recommend, if you’re like me and literally in the opposite corner of a large multi-story home away from the main router; to finish your connection with a wired, direct connection to your gaming device. Otherwise, yes, you’ll sometimes get maximum speeds on a mobile device just by utilizing the ‘mesh functionality’ aka ‘roaming’. But once you get to the corner of the home, in the corner of a room, behind or next to a bunch of extra monitors, electronics, and solid walls, you may need that one extra node, or a direct connection, etc etc. To help you get the best speeds.League of Legends, for example, completely wireless with 3 nodes was acceptable, but not as smooth as my old power-adapter power-line setup. With 4 nodes and a wired connection at the end, my game was as smooth as it used to be via the power adapter.Finally, to explain why I switched from the power-adapter? Power adapters are a little finicky when it comes to the home suddenly using a lot of electricity, or when you need extra power slots in your wall and you try to connect the power adapter into any sort of extender outlet. Also, mesh wifi allowed me to also get my phone and laptop onto the stronger connections even all the way down in my bedroom.All in all, so far so good. I bought it twice! The app isn’t horrible at all (I’m quite picky), and setup is easy. Cool!(Also, they don’t look too bad in a modern home. The black+white aesthetic is classy and isn’t too distracting in the kitchen. Looks good!)

    Easy to set up and great coverage

    We had wifi dead spots in our home, particularly at the ends of the house and the top floor. Got this to fix that, and fix that it did.Like – easy to set up with simple step by step directions, after the first one is configured the others just plug into the wall, easy to use app, units look nice given they are another smart device on the counter…, status LED light can be turned on/off so these can be well hidden, the three mesh points setup in a triangle on the y and z-axes of our house (if that makes any sense) nicely cover our ~3500 sq ft across basement and 3 floors above grade, performance is A+ and covers the entire house and out to the yard (have a smart switch in garage and it links to the network no problem).Dislike – Nothing that impacted me, but… the power cables are 5 feet long, power cord seems of good quality but the brick that connects to the outlet is ginormous (at least it is oriented so it shouldn’t block other devices going into a power strip), comes with just 1 ethernet cord that is required for setupMad I didn’t get a mesh network sooner, this set is super easy to setup, looks nice, and can be setup with same network name/password you’re already using so everything automatically re-connects. Totally worth this cost for reliable wifi through the whole house and the deck. I like the ability to hardwire points together and might eventually do that for at least one of the points, but even without that I am streaming and scrolling with no waiting.

    Decent Upgrade!

    I got these on sale for $225 I think. They ended up going on sale for $200 like 2 days later. Little miffed about that but can’t hate. So far I am very happy with them. The setup was fairly easy and straightforward.If you are replacing an old router with these (or any router), name your new router the same name as your old one and all your devices will connect to the new router without much hassle. Otherwise, you will need to log into every device and it’s a giant thing, especially for smart/IoT devices.The app is a little lacking but it gets the job done. It isn’t a typical router portal that some people may be used to logging into. You have to pay for the full features of the app. That seems to be par for the course for all companies now a days. The range on them is very good so make sure you have a good password set up so nobody can jump on your network. I have full bars when cutting my grass in my back yard (approx. 60′ from the router).It has a guest network which is nifty. If you go with the pro version you can also have an IoT band so all of your smart devices are isolated from your main network to protect your data. Some IoT devices don’t offer much for security so that is a cool feature. It has QoS as well which is awesome for certain devices you want to have priority over others. Overall these are pretty awesome. They seem to be fairly user friendly so anyone from a semi-tech savvy Grandma to an IT specialist could handle it without much stress. They work very well and were a great upgrade from my ISP’s router without breaking the bank.

    Great coverage and fast!

    I have a 1,700 sq ft home. We have Spectrum 500mbps. I have the “main” Mesh device connected to the modem which is behind the TV. The 2nd one is on the other side of the living room about 30′ away. The 3rd one is another 30′ away inside my office. This is the one that’s actually most important to me, as my wife’s WFH setup is in there along with my gaming PC, and my home lab which is an esxi host running 12 VM’s. My wife’s setup is connected directly to the AP in the office. All of my stuff is connected to the AP through an HP Procurve. On my gaming PC, I get 540mbs consistently. On any VM on my esxi host, they are routinely getting about 385 mbps is. Keep in mind that all of the traffic in my office hits the office AP and then goes bac to the main over Wi-Fi 6. I think that’s great. It’s very robust and stable. Every AP, including the modem, is also on a UPS so my wife never loses connectivity unless power goes out for an extended period of time, which we have been lucky this season. The set up is easy, the app is easy. It has an optimization feature to tune the channels automatically to make sure neighbor’s Wi-Fi is steeping on mine. Highly recommend!

    Overall good product

    Easy installation… once one unit is installed, the others got added automatically once they are plugged in.I bought them (Wi-Fi 6 mesh) at the same time with 3 Eero Pro and an Eero. I did side by side comparison:No download speed boost when testing with my iPhone 13. With my Gigabit Internet from Verizon, I only get 350~400Mbps on both devices. Upload speed actually is worse than the Eero (May be 120Mbps vs 220 from Eero.)Range: Eero out perform the Deco also. I put 3 units of each Eero and Deco across 3 floors. When I did the speed test in the basement, eero performs slightly better.Now, to be fair, I tested only on my iPhone, one device connection with Deco but my Eero has been connected to probably 12 devices during these tests. No one was gaming at the time, I think this is where Deco, with WiFi 6, shines, right?Conclusion: probably worth buying for both devices. If not for gaming, Eero would be my top choice, even with the Wi-Fi 5. Of course if you can afford the Eero6 or 6 plus, go for that! (I bought the Eero Pro Wi-Fi 5 during prime for $150 – 3 of them, it is a great price, then I bought an refurb Eero for $30, also great price. I am keeping all because I bought some of them for my kids. I’m giving the deco to my younger son and his college buddies because they game a lot; I’m giving two out of my 3 Eero pro to my older son for his new 2000SF house; Finally, I’m keeping one Eero pro and one Eero for my own 3300SF house – well covered). Hope this review help others. 🙂

    Mesh System Great for Large Houses

    I bought this product after my son researched wifi systems for large spaces. Our family has a lake house, 3 story and a little under 6,000 sq ft and a large dock about 150-200 feet from the house. We purchased this set of three and placed one on each floor. Then we purchased the outdoor router TP-Link Deco X50-Outdoor (sku is 576173) and placed that one outside in a covered area attached to the house. Indoor speed before TP Link was 20-40 Mbps download, with TP Link we were 100+ Mbps download everywhere inside. Outside on the dock (200 ft from the outdoor router) we went from 5-8 Mbps to 70-90 Mbps. I think the whole thing ran me $360.00, $200 for the 3 piece and $160.00 for the special outdoor router (price with tax). Now we can upload software updates to the boat electronics while the boat is in the boat slip and it doesn’t take hours. I was able to view videos sent through text on the dock as well without buffering. This really solves the wifi problem for properties with outbuildings. I would probably research other items if you have an outbuilding further away than 200 feet. The very end of the 40 foot long dock was cutting out a bit but I was expecting that based on the product specs.

    Lives up to the hype

    Why did I need this? I live in a townhouse, built in the 70’s. I wanna say the walls are made of some sort of cement because the upstairs can never connect to the wifi. I’ve tried several things, purchased wifi extender, purchased faster speed from my serive provider and even tried updating the router, nothing worked.Why I chose TP Deco? I looked online for “wifi mesh” and stumbled upon a best of list. TP was best overall but I was hesitant because I’ve never heard the brand. My 2nd choice was Google Nest because every knows Google. I decided on TP because it looks as if the different models are compatible, their website details more on this. I thought in the future, if I needed more “nests” I wouldn’t have to buy a particular model, I had options to choose from. My 2nd chouce had two models and they could not be used with each other.My thoughts so far? I love this. Everything is connected and we do not have to be within 10 feet of the modem to do so. I’ve only had this for 4 days and was very skeptical but everything has been working as described so I wanted to leave a review asap. It was easy to set up as well. I also want to note, I’m not a tech person, I always have to look up what is a modem and what is a router, so when I say easy install, it’s easy. Additional nests were also easy to install, just plug it in and make sure the app registers that it connects.Other thoughts? You do need the app to set up, and the app requires an email to sign up. Sort of a hassle because it’s another account. I did notice there were parental controls and stuff but those settings aren’t needed.The size of this was larger than expected, it is literally the size of toilet paper (TP).. lol.I am sensitive to light, can’t sleep unless it’s completely dark and I did not know there would be a light illuminated on this at all times. I’ve hidden it behind some objects but the set up instructions state it should be places away from other large electronics and in an open space. My set up does not allow this but there’s been no issue with connectivity.

    Great feature set, no issues thus far

    I’ve had this system set up for a good week, to replace my Nest Wifi that I had. The latter was just creating problems with nodes inexplicably going offline so I’d have to go and manually reset each node, usually once a week.So far with this Deco system, it’s been maintenance free, as any router should be (except FW updates and such). The parental controls are good, and seem to work a bit better than Nest’s, in that I can filter specific websites (Nest doesn’t allow that).Data throughput is good and consistent, no issues with the range – important because I have some iot devices outside – and setup was fairly simple. I did have trouble with the initial connection of the first node due to the fact that Samsung handsets try to be a little TOO smart and wind up splitting data between Wi-Fi and mobile, so I had to temporarily disable that on my handset.My only qualm is the subscription service, though the “freemium” tier seems to be all that I will need.My final conclusion is that it looks to be a solid and reliable mesh system with good options and a good UI.
