It's ok for the price. Don't expect good support.

Router is providing great coverage of our small bungalow 2000 sq ft. We had an issue where one device would no longer get internet access when connected. Called customer support and they blamed it on the device and wouldn't even try to resolve the issue. Said call Lg. I did a factory reset of all the access points and fixed the issue.

Wifi is stable and fast. coverage is good. 2000 square feet house but I am still using all 3 units. great price and more configuration options available compared to google mesh system. setup was straight forward.

Great Mesh System

I have been using the TP-Link Deco for almost a year and I have not encountered any issues with it. It has been very solid and provides great parental controls. Managing the devices is very easy. Since upgrading the coverage in the home has improved and there are no more dead spots in the house, back yard or the driveway. I am even getting coverage as far as the end of the street (about 500 meters to the end of the street).

Worked like a charm

Install took about 10mins for 2 pods, haven't installed the 3rd yet. App did crash on the setup of the second pod, but after firmware updates all was working well. Even in what used to be dead or extreme slow spots in the house now have a faster connection then what the telus wifi router was giving out. Cheaper option out there but still pricey.

SOLVED ALL ISSUES

Unpacked and set up all 3 TP-link Deco units within 15 minutes and had wi-fi in every room. Previously had 2 or 3 dead spots in the house due to duct work and appliance interferrence but now all is good and even have wi-fi in front and rear decks of home. I used the network cable to my Sony 900E and Samsung QLED Tv's and Netflix never looked better! Our iphones and ipad work everywhere in the home of 3000 sq ft including the basement.

Not happy-Do not buy

I bought this kit for my parents as they always complain about wifi drops and low signal in their house. I wish i didn't. Set up was a nightmare and chatting with them was of no help. Don't waste your time. Skip this one.

Garbage system- no support

I picked this up around Christmas time because it was cheap, and I guess, i got what I paid for. The setup using the app took me and my son like 2 hours because the app kept crashing and giving errors. I called into support and they were of no help, telling me to buy a new phone. Once I was able to actually use it, the signal was not much better then my old router and my speeds were actually reduced in some areas of my home. I eventually said forget it and returned it for a refund

GREAT BUY!

I bought this and am extremely satisfied with the service and coverage. Love the parental controls as to how much time the kids can be online and I can see what they are browsing. Only wish the parental controls were a little more customized, but still happy to have some control! Great product!

Great speed - wonderful parental controls

I bought it to improve the internet speed in my house (above average size). I place one station in the basement, one on the main floor, one on third. However something was not right since the speed was not that great. I decided to optimize the placement of the station and picked a different location for the station on the main floor and the speed has become what I expected when I purchased it. However what I learnt about this router is that it has an absolutely awesome control app. It only works on a mobile device and you can't access it through a browser, which I don't mind. But the best thing about the app is its parental controls. I now can control the devices of all my kids from anywhere in the world. I can kill the internet, limit what they can do or simply establish daily allowance and bed time for all of the devices. It is amazing. Very recommended to parents who struggle to find a solution to limit internet access!

Really good!

I have tried many solution to fix our internet problem at home. This is by far the simplest and has given us the best result. Our internet is 50mbps and we are now constantly getting more than 50 mbps around house. Highly recommend it.

Works Great

Bought it during Black Friday early Thursday sale. Works great. Took a while to set up as the Android app is terrible, but made it work. Have 1 as primary router, 1 on backhaul, and 1 in wireless mode and all are stable. I.P. reservation and port forwarding work well. Parental controls are superb, and allow you to see exactly what is being accessed by devices that are being monitored. Despite what people seem to say, guest mode WORKS great even while using ethernet backhaul. Would highly recommend.

Works Perfect

I live in an older home so the standard wifi routers weren't working at getting a solid signal everywhere it was needed. Setup of this system was extremely easy and it works perfectly at getting WIFI to the whole house. The app is very easy to use and straight forward when it comes to programming and controls. I would recommend this to anyone especially based on the price point of other systems.

Work Well in Router Mode

I first set it up in router mode and it was working well, but then tried it as an access point with using the cable router for the DHCP device. Was a total disaster that way. Was giving out weird IP addresses. Switched it back to normal and everything has been great for 3 weeks. Solved out dead area issues!

Very easy set up

I purchased this whole home system to aleviate a number of very poor reception areas in my home. It was very easy to set up. It works great so far.

Easy Setup and works great

I was impressed by the ease of setup of this system. The App was a little difficult to find/identify on IOS (instructions in the box say to download 'The App' but does not specify which TP-Link app (there is a few). Once installed it was very easy to run thru the set up wizard...had all three up and running in minutes. Not sure I believe the 4500 sq foot range but I know I can just add more AP points to extend coverage where I need it.

Worth the money

Great product, which has solved all the wifi issues in the house. I had issues with streaming, music devices that connect through wifi and getting signal out in the garage, (across a 100 ft distance). The set up and app is very easy to use. This product will replace all the range boosters and extenders I was using.

Fixed all wifi problems

Great product, worth the money! Easy to install and app is very easy to use. I needed wifi in the garage which is about 100 ft across the yard, no other products (range extenders or boosters, would not work, save your money). This mesh system fixed the wifi issues that I was having with my other devices, such as dropped streaming signals with the bose sound touch.
