Using the TP-Link Deco Mesh WiFi System (Deco S4) you can get fast and seamless WiFi throughout your home.
These units work together to create a single network that provides coverage up to 5,500 sq. ft, so you can keep your devices connected even as you move about your home**.
** Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and the number of connected devices are not, and will vary as a result of
1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles
2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead
3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.
Does it Work?
Yes! I have 3 of these DecoS4 units in my Mom’s home, which is over 2,700 sq. ft. So when I visit her I know I will have an excellent WiFi signal no matter where I am in the house (and the yard).
I actually used these TP-Link Deco Mesh WiFi System (Deco S4) units to create a dedicated 5 GHz network that only my devices connect to, while anything else in the house (Mom’s smartphone, computer, smart bulbs, etc.) connect to the 2.4Ghz network provided by the Comcast/Xfinity cable modem.
Here are a couple of pictures of one single unit in the guest bedroom (at my Mom’s house). The only problem I have with the design is the light atop each unit to signal “on/good signal”.
You can only see the light if you are looking at the top of the unit, but the way I have it set up with this little shot glass I can see it at night from any position in the room. Very handy!
