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!
