" ...  I was tasked with finding a router that would work well to provide connectivity to the entirety of our office. ... I put the router at one end of the hallway and the satellite at the other end of the hallway. ... We're getting close to the speeds we're paying for (finally), and people are finally able to use the Wifi connection without issues. ... Since setup, we have had zero issues with this mesh router system, so I recommend it.  ...  "

" ...  We are still in the process of optimizing the placement of the satellites in order to maximize coverage and signal strength for the areas needed, but that is minimal and mostly to keep the equipment out of harms way.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For example the guest network apparently has access to the entire local network if you use IPv6! ... Wi-Fi coverage did seem good.  ...  "
comment
" ...  My home hs two 100 Sq.meters floors with a concrete ceiling dividing the two. ... Set up the master on same place where the x8 was, and the satellite on other floor right below it. ... Now there’s a perfect signal throughout.  ...  "
