    I am so deeply entrenched in the Apple eco system. I hated to take down my Apple AirPort Extreme router, but I was tired of trying to get WiFi throughout my whole house because I couldn’t find a range extender that did the job, and I tried several. I swallowed my pride and replaced Apple with this TP-Link Deco, and am I ever glad! 20 minutes start to finish, three units on two floors. Easiest setup ever, and flawless. Max WiFi everywhere in house. Speed of WiFi exactly same as speed of modem. Great job, TP-Link!

    One month in, and we have been extremely pleased with this router so far. We have seen performance equivalent to what is stated in the specs. We bought the 3 pack, which was more than we needed for our 2 story townhouse, but the sale price was cheaper than buying the two pack. We are using only two at the moment, which is giving our home full, high speed coverage. Streaming video in multiple places at once has proven to be no issue. There are some corners of a couple of rooms where buffering used to happen with our old router, that no longer have any issues. It has also given us extended coverage outside for the patio and courtyard, more than 50 feet from the house. Speed tests show marked improvement outdoors, and the range is significantly enhanced.

    The router itself is a disc shape with a 4.5 inch diameter, and is white in color. We have the second unit sitting on the fireplace mantel in our bedroom and easily blends in. It could also easily be covered. There is a single green led on the top of the unit, but the app does offer a Night Mode to turn off the light at night if it is not wanted, or you can choose to turn it off all the time. Each of the three disc are identical in size. The one you choose to attach to your modem becomes the “main” one.

    When comparing this brand to others, look at the specs carefully. This is not the fastest mesh network available, but it has plenty of speed to match our service speed (300 Mbps). We have several IoT devices (Hue bulbs, Wemo switches, 3 Echos, HomePod) along with phones, tablets, computers, printer, TV/video streaming, security system, and video surveillance. The setup was very easy, and I’m happy with the app. If you have children, there are substantial parental controls available, including limiting amount of time of internet access, when access is available, blocking types of websites or specific sites (I wish I would have had these options when my kids were teens). There is no web setup for the router(s), so you do need some type of mobile device (I used iOS, so I can only speak to that version of the app). The app also offers settings for IPv6, address reservation, port forwarding, DDNS, and VLAN. The only other drawback I see is that there are only two networking ports on each disc. On the “main” disc, one will be used to connect to your modem. So if you need more than one item with a wired connection to the router, you will need a switch.

    So far, I feel like the Deco system offers a great price/performance combination, as we got this for under $170 on sale. As of August 2018 there are several highly rated mesh networking options on the market at the moment. This one meets our needs and performance expectations at a wallet friendly price point. My recommendation is to know your needs, and pick a system that prioritizes them.

    es un equipo excelente, tengo una casa de aproximandamente 20 x 70 mts lo que hice fue conectar estos equipos para alcanzar las zonas donde no se tiene alcance tengo un router uno de ellos lo configuré como AP y los demas como MALLA con el mismo SSID, muy buena calidad cada equipo cubre una area de 20×20 mts se recomienda construir la malla con los equipos lo mas cerca entre ellos que se pueda, se pueden poner a 5 a 7mts entre ellos no recomiendo que sea más lejos por que se degrada la señal pero a esa distancia entre ellos funciona excelente y un solo SSID para toda la casa no necesitas poner más. Lo padre de esta solucion es que es incremental si aun con estos 3 routers tienes puntos ciegos donde no se alcance la WIFI puedes o comprarlos por separado de una sola pieza e lugar de 3 vas a tener 4 equipos, es una de las soluciones más baratas y buena que encontré, Las nuevas soluciones para extender tu red lo pueden buscar como WIFI MESH for HOME, hay muchas marcas que les pueden ayudar para mejorar el desempeño de la WIFI en tu casa, lo intente con extensores de rango de otras marcas y esta es la mejor solucion que les puedo recomendar. suerte

    Este paquete de 3 sustituye a un Apple Airport Extreme y a un Apple Airport Express que tuve durante varios años en mi casa de dos niveles y que me estaban dando problemas porque se desconectaban entre ellos y la velocidad en la planta alta apenas era de 2.5 Mbps cuando la velocidad de mi proveedor de internet es 55 Mbps (nada extraordinario pero es cable es la mejor opcion en mi zona).

    La instalación es relativamente sencilla pero no creo que cualquiera lo hubiera podido hacer. Hay que bajar una App y de ahí seguir instrucciones para activar y enlazar uno a uno las tres bases. Yo lo hice todo en la misma habitación y luego me llevé dos bases a los lugares de la casa en donde creo necesito mejor cobertura. Yo ya tenía definido los lugares pero supongo que hay que probar para encontrar la mejor ubicación de cada base.

    El resto fue muy sencillo, le puse el mismo nombre y contraseña a la red así que no tuve que volver a conectar cada cosa de la casa y poco a poco me fueron apareciendo en la App como dispositivos conectados. La App es la única forma de configurar y controlar las bases o la red. Esto es algo a lo que ya estaba acostumbrado con los Apple Airport pero la App de TP-Link tine mucho mas funciones y opciones para configurar. Yo no le he movido nada y funciona sin problema.

    El resultado es que ahora la señal de la red es mucho mas fuerte en toda la casa y la velocidad en la planta alta paso de 2.5 Mbps a 45 Mbps!!! No se degrada con la interferencia de otras redes (hay com otras 10 alrededor de mi casa) y la velocidad es constante o yo no noto la diferencia. Es importante aclarar que en mi casa, lo mas demandante que hacemos es ver Netflix en HD en dos teles o en una tele y un iPad mientras usamos otras cosas que no consumen mucho ancho de banda.

    Yo esperaba una diferencia de velocidad entre la planta baja y la planta alta mucho mayor, había leído que podía ser hasta 40% menos pero estoy muy contento de que solo sea 10% menos, entiendo que esa diferencia es algo normal y me parece que este producto ha resuelto mi necesidad muy bien. El precio varía mucho, yo lo puse en el carrito cuando estaba como en 7 mil y compre cuando estaba casi a la mitad!!!

    Oh man, I am so glad I pulled the trigger on these!! We just moved and had to change our ISP. We are paying for 100mbs but was constantly testing at 25. The bigger issue was the constant loss of signal. I purchased this mesh system uncertain of my results and I am simply beyond pleased. I only needed 2 units for my 2-story 1920 sq ft house: one in the basement, the other in the living room on the opposite side on the main floor. Now I am constantly testing between 90-105 mbps with no loss or dropped signal! setup was a cakewalk. Worth every penny!!

    UPDATE 2/29/2020: As I’ve had more time with the deco, my love for the product has only grown 10-fold. I have had absolutely zero connectivity issues, and the user app is perfect for the average person! In the app you can rename all of your connected devices making it easier to identify them. You can also set certain devices to “priority” to maximize their bandwidth! It’s beyond simple creating a guest network, and the “alerts” when a new device first connects to your network is incredibly helpful! I can’t say enough good things about this product and experience thus far! Give it a go for sure!

    Súper buen pedido:
    1) Diseño y calidad excelente
    2) Súper fácil de instalar. Yo, que me cuesta un poco instalación de cosas relacionadas con tecnología, se me facilitó muchísimo con la aplicación.
    3) Rango de internet buenísimo
    4) Sale mejor esta opción que comprar varios amplificadores.

    Totalmente recomendado

    Easy to set up and install, but horrible WiFi that takes a while to manifest as a real issue. I have 5 Nest Cams and before buying these, I would get one Off-Line about once a month. With this awesome Mesh Wifi, I now get 3-5 reporting “off-line every single day and when I go into my nest cam history, for any of my cameras, I can see huge blank spaces throughout the day for every camera. The only think I changed was my wifi router. I don’t have time to spend on the time with Tech Support. I just wanted an off the shelf solution that works and this was a complete waste of my time and effort and is NOT worth the money. I get complaints my my kids every day about our wifi now. One of the worst decisions of my life. As soon as I can find the time, I’ll rip this out and replace it with anything, even tin cans and string would make me happier at this point.

    TP-Link Deco solamente usa WPA2 TKIP y no WPA2 AES, la primera es super fácil de vulnerar. Literalmente mi hija de 12 años tardó menos de dos días para lograrlo y conseguir todos los datos que pasan por el WiFi. No hay manera de cambiar esta configuración y a Julio de 2020 TP-Link no tiene planificado habilitar AES.

    la verdad muy decepcionado. compre otro kit wifi mesh (Nova), el cual en calidad, cobertura, estabilidad es mejor por mucho, desafortunadamente no tiene proteccion de contraseña wifi wpa2/aes que es lo que yo busco, este equipo si trae el nivel de seguridad en la contraseña de wifi, ademas trae la funcionalidad de control parental y antivirus que me gusto mucho, pero desafortunadamente, la cobertura no es buena, se pausa a cada rato y es necesario reconectar la wifi de forma manual, lo cual es molesto, la itinerancia no funciona como se muestra en el video que si cambias de piso, cada punto de acceso toma en automatico. Aun actualizando la ultima version del firmware o reseteando y configurando nuevamente de cero, no funciono. no se si tiene falla de fabrica, porque no entiendo como existen tantos comentarios positivos y mi equipo no funciona. La verdad no lo recomiendo.
