I have an 80+ year old 4000 sq ft 2 story house with a full basement and plaster/metal lathe walls. My previous router and range extender dropped the internet connection often. My devices would often not find the range extender when I moved out of range for the base router. I have been following mesh router Wifi technology for awhile, but was unwilling to switch because of the high price and unattractive units from the top rated offerings. When I read the reviews and saw the price (50% of the other highly rated systems) I bought the TP LInk Deco M5 unit. Since its installation 5 weeks ago, we have not lost the internet once. We subscribe to Charter/Spectrums 100 meg service. At the farthest points in our house we regularly get download speeds exceeding 100 megs. I even get service in my yard 50 ft away from the house! My only complaint was not being told that during setup I would not see the Wifi connected signal on my phone as the units were communicating with my phone via bluetooth until all 3 were set up. I highly recommend this system!

Easy to install and use.
The TP-Link Deco was purchased less than a month ago and it has been working ever since. The Deco is a whole home mesh wifi system. Our is a 3-pack (3 Decos) which allows us to place them where it will provide the maximum wifi coverage. It has performed perfectly and the units are so small most people don't even know they are around.
Decided to upgrade my WiFi to a mesh system. These Deco units were very easy to setup and have worked flawlessly since I installed them about 3 weeks ago. WiFi doesn't drop out no matter where in the house one goes. Just make sure to locate each module within 40 feet of each other and then you should have success as well. Very happy with this purchase.
Easy quick set up.
Easy quick and efficient set up. After looking for other mesh system, I chose TP Link for the price and numbers of base ports. Couldn't have made a better choice. I have no regrets and I get over 110MPS speeds after getting 45 MPS before on my 2 story house and in the back and front yards.
Issue after power outage
System works fine.........until you have a power outage. Decos will not recover, wifi goes down and stays down. You have to be home to do a complete reset and redo configurations, on all 3 decos. If your away on vacation that means your home is without wifi, no cameras wll be working. Your home is left without protection.
