The coverage is so good I might j...

re: Looking to get a mesh Wi-Fi system soon - s14suspense
[quote]According to the radiation charts, the signal will be strongest in the front and sides of the AP, with a significant dead zone on the back side. If they're going on exterior walls pointing toward the interior of the house, you should be good. [/quote] Turns out the 4th in wall AP that I d...

re: Looking to get a mesh Wi-Fi system soon - s14suspense

re: Looking to get a mesh Wi-Fi system soon - s14suspense
[quote]Right, the only time I would consider the in-wall model is if there was already a wall jack but poor wifi in the room, or if the ceiling isn't accessible to mount a better AP. [/quote] Already had wire drops in 3 rooms of the house and wanted a minimal look of all that equipment. We'l...

[quote]Question for the Bosch folks. Do they do a good job of drying? [/quote] We run a 30 min express wash most of the time and I learned a trick from here the other day that if you crack the door right after it is finished it has been drying real good on just that short cycle. Top tip. ...
