I'm looking to install a mesh wifi system in my new home. If anyone has this, could they chime in on how it is?

This is how I test how good it is. Before I got this? Wife would complain all the time. After installing x60? Wife never complains about the wifi. Even as the far corner where our master bedroom is. I put one in basement, main floor and 2nd floor with Ethernet back haul.

How do you get an ethernet from modem to all those places without it being ugly? Through the walls?

3 routers = 3 networks. With a mesh system it's just one big network = 1 signal. So I guess less interference, more stability and better performance.

Not sure how you have it setup.

Router + router + router
Or
Router + AP mode + AP mode

The problem is Handoff for most people, since most like to just plug and play. The way I mentioned, without proper setup you will have issues (signal strength, wifi channels etc). Your device will tend to hold onto a wifi connection for as long as it could, even though there is a stronger signal. Example would be you are in the basement and it's connected to that router. As you walk upstairs, it will continue to hold onto that signal no matter how weak it is. You resolve this by turnung off your wifi and turning it back on so you connect to the strongest SSID. Whereas in a Mesh system it will hand off seamlessly.

weird i do not have this handoff issue it would automatically switch to strongest signal.

I lucked out, when I bought this house, the previous owner had ethernet lines through out the house.

I would still get the x60, hey for $50 u future proof urself, why not? m9 was great, but its been around for 5years now? Also even if your devices are not wif6, you can still take advantage of some the stuff, like the x60 can handle all the devices in ur wifi network more effciently, newer chip and ram compared to the M9. I've had both. x60 was a very good choice of upgrade. You can still get it on dell.

too much as it coverage? My advice is ignore how much it shows 3000sqft. Just remember that is upto 3000sqft, and thats assuming you have a big open space house. Every house is different some newer than others, some very old that have thicker drywall or something in the house that may intefere with signal. TBH 3000 is good avg to play with, and than from the 3 pack that comes with you have to place them in a good location.

Like example cause of my house, even though its under 20yrs old for most part signal is good, but i have to put one of the devices in basement on the front near my rogers modem is. I do have ethernet throughout the house, but in middle of basement renos, and will move that main x60 to middle of basement, but in mean time its in the worst spot near the front where most people have it, so that means your now only technically have 2 devices to allocate somewhere in the house to make sure you have proper coverage.

I think you can find some WiFi relay for much less, $20 - $30 each
