You also tested the AmpliFi HD. That is for high density situations which wasn’t what you had in that house. The regular AmpliFi would have worked just as well and been $200.

Fuck you WSJ

Fluffy1oO1Owl says:

normal access points can also act these days like so called “mesh” you see only one network but there 3 access points. So “mesh” is nothing new. It is just marketing. But i agree it is made easier for home users. Still overpriced.

these are ugly, rubbish, expensive wifi device that will never work fine. just use wifi powerlines with wifi ac dualband. it cost less then 150 dollar

Doesn’t it make the internet speed slower with multiple ap’s since the information has to bounce around more to get to the router?

Aaron Hilbert says:

What app is he using at 1:25 to test the speed?

You missed Netgear Orbi. It’s Tri-Band WiFi Mesh System. It has dedicated 4×4 1.7Gbps backhaul between router and satellite. so no speed reduction even many wireless device connected at once. Best WiFi system ever.

Google’s OnHub is the answer

So much fucking editing and money spent but no views lol

xTheShady1x says:

You could also use an old router and turn it into an AP(third party software might be required) + powerline networking.

Javier Lopez says:

do you have to be connected with a company in order for these to work or do you pay these companies on a monthly bases??
