Affordable Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Network from TP-Link
October 19, 2021
Looking for a Wi-Fi upgrade? If you are in the market for increased speed and range for your Wi-Fi network, you should be considering mesh network products that support Wi-Fi 6. CNET has a post announcing a new product from TP-Link. The tri-band AX3600 mesh system with support for Wi-Fi 6 is a very affordable $229. That’s the same price as just one eero Pro 6 node.
You are looking for the Deco W7200 model, which you can only get from Walmart. It is a two-device system that claims to provide up to 5,500 square feet of coverage. One device is connected via Ethernet to your cable modem of fiber ONT. The second device is placed within the Wi-Fi range of the base unit. Since the TP-Link Deco W7200 pricing is at the low end for mesh systems, supply is very limited at this time.
