Just upgraded to Google Mesh WiFi...  cloud9:



rubschin: pricey

I just use our base BT hub and a couple of those cheap Netgear extenders to get WiFi out to the CCTV.  What does Google mesh add?

Range and quality...

I've been using TP-Links to get signal around the apartment (reinforced concrete loves WiFi and I had the house wired with CAT 5 to solve that issue) and they haven't been very reliable...

...and I wanted to extend the coverage.

The Google WiFi works brilliantly (I have three)...

The only 'Gotcha' is that the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz networks share the same SSID which has fucked me up somewhat... Just finally solved that...

Pretty cool system actually...  :thumbsup:

If you use those Blink CCTV cameras you have to force all the extended networks to use the same SSID which seems to not work too well in just one area

Yarp, having the same SSID is one of the benefits if the network is large...

I've also set up a 'Guest' network so they can have access to Interwebz but not to my NAS, etc.
:thumbsup:
Well, whatever nevermind
