I'm having a hard time justifying the cost of WiFi 6 for a new mesh system... we'll have gigabit internet soon (finally!) but honestly I'd only expect to get the max of out that if I was hardwired. I can deal with 300 Mbps or thereabouts over the air.

Any suggestions on systems / brands? To be honest I'm leaning towards the Google WiFi system just because they all seem mostly the same and I get 10% credit back for my Google One membership.

(Yes yes I know, don't mention google here... srry)


@ndanes I'm guessing you have opinions - I know you went with Linksys. I would like to spend about $150 for the router + 2 APs - is that realistic?

Alright - gonna go ahead and give the TP-Link Deco Mesh WiFi System a try. I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes!

@funnylookinhat I've not used that system but, I do like TP-Link products. The reviews seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

I can't speak for this specific device, but +1 for TP-Link. Solid products at competitive prices. I've found TP-Link stuff generally has great value in these regards.

@cooper Yeah - but can you trust Amazon reviews anymore? I'd pay for a subscription to a review service or something!
