The Best Wi-Fi Mesh Network Systems of 2017
Have a large space with Wi-Fi dead zones? A multi-node system you control from your smartphone might be a better solution than a traditional wireless router. Here's what you need to know about this new crop of products along with our top-rated reviews.
Plume Adaptive WiFi
Plume Adaptive WiFi, a unique system that places pods in every room of your house to achieve whole-home Wi-Fi coverage, lacks many of the features that you get with competing products, and its throughput performance is middling.
The Linksys Velop provides Wi-Fi coverage for your entire home and seamless roaming over a single network. It's stylish, easy to install, and delivers fast single user and MU-MIMO throughput speeds, making it our top pick for Wi-Fi systems.
Securifi Almond 3 Smart Home Wi-Fi System
The Almond 3 Smart Home Wi-Fi System brings wireless connectivity to all areas of your home and doubles as a home automation hub. The system looks good and is easy to install, but throughput performance is mixed.
If you're looking for a super-simple way to get Wi-Fi to every corner of your home, Google Wifi could be the answer. Delivering seamless wireless connectivity on a single network, the system is easy to install and configure, looks great, and delivers solid throughput.
