Deco M9 is also an option as it has a tri-band dedicated backhaul.
Looking to upgrade my parents place with a $250 budget.

I would try for at least 2 access points (Eeros or whatever). You mentioned not being a fan of the Beacons because they don't have ethernet ports - does this mean you have ethernet wired in the house that you would use for the Eeros or access points you connect?
I don't know details of the Orbi, but with gigabit internet service, I believe the Eero Pros would be optimal. I'd do at least 2 (one where the modem is on top floor, and then another on floor below).

New app Released a few days ago supports disabling of 5Ghz band when you’re trying to connect crappy IoT devices to your wifi network.

Try both. Maybe your home will work great with orbi. Or maybe you’ll find the dedicated backhaul can’t penetrate certain areas where eeros will shine. Though the Triband orbi for $300 is a great deal.

3 nodes means better coverage on each floor. With only two orbi nodes, you may still get deadlines on a specific area/floor.

No. The third eero will have no overall impact on the rest of the network. That’s the beauty of dynamic backhaul and truemesh. Only the clients that connect via the garage will have reduced speeds. In fact, the eero in the garage will probably use 2.4ghz band to connect to rest of network while the eeros In the house will use 5Ghz to move data between each other.Canuckbert wrote: ↑ I ordered the eero 3 pack non-pro with echo dot. First eero will be wired to the router at the front of the house. I'm going to run a network cable from the router to the back door of the house and plugging the second eero in there. Third eero will be wireless and in the garage about 50 feet from the second eero.
Will eero three slow down the rest of the network?

Agreed. But won't the Eeros in the house use ethernet for the backhaul if they're connected by a wire?mr_yellow wrote: ↑ No. The third eero will have no overall impact on the rest of the network.

Depends on how many devices you have now or near future that will have Wifi 6/6E and also more importantly...your own plans for higher speed connectivity.
