Thank you to those who gave their thoughts on my broadband question. I know there’s many knowledgable people here and some may know about wireless mesh networking.
I’ve used / struggled with an Apple Airport basestation and Airport Express devices to try and cover my modest three-storey, terraced Victorian-built home with Wi-Fi.
In fact, I’ve gone through four Apple Airport base stations. Two of the old flat square type that had a known issue with overheating. And I’m now on my second of the tall square ones.
When I set up a new one it’s fantastic, but over time I have issues with Wi-Fi dropping out.
I thought I’d try the Linksys Velop system. It arrived two days ago. Yesterday I tried to set it up using the app on iOS and it just proved to be impossible to set it up. So, it has been sent back today.
Waiting for my collection at Waitrose is the Google Wi-Fi system. On paper, not as advanced technically as the Linksys but reportedly a doodle to set up and manage.
Does anyone here use Wireless Mesh networking? What’s your experience and recommendations?
