What mesh system/brand are you using?

Looking to pick up a mesh system and curious as to what you're running in you home.

Eero... TP-Link... etc.

3 levels totaling around 3,100sq ft. I put one on top floor and one in basement. Both are hardwired. I do not use wireless backhaul.

I'm happy with them but I do not need high speed WiFi connections as i hardwire everything but tablets and phones.

If I had to do it again, I'd do a higher grade router in the basement and a PoE commercial grade ceiling mounted AP on the top level to cover the whole house with one unit.

re: What mesh system/brand are you using?
I have an Orbi mesh system. The router is in the center of a 2200 sf house and covers inside. I have a satellite inside the cabinet of my summer kitchen in my screened in patio that covers my backyard.

My HOA provides fiber optic at 300/300 speed. The slowest speed I get anywhere in my house is about 180/180.

re: What mesh system/brand are you using?
swapped to TP 5400s this year after eero consistently getting worse..Had three decos, adding two more outside because the deal was too good to pass up yesterday

I use the 6Ghz to feed each node and just run 2.4/5 for devices and have consistent, 800-900Mbps on two stories

ETA: eeros were fine until I got fibre interwebz and needed a more stable connection..I even had the latest and greatest and they were horrible...

Eero Pro 6e. 3 nodes. 2 levels, 4600 sq ft. It replaced a patchwork google mesh system with various generations of nodes. Had 4 nodes total and it would regularly need to be reset. The eero system is stable so far. Only time I’ve had to reset it was when my internet went out and came back up.

Eero 6+. Easily covers 2 stories 3k sq ft. Very happy with eero overall (I've had a few sets since the OG models, usually upgrade every few years). The Eero Pro 6e is their highest end/newest model but pricey.
