Same model - TL-SG108. Used for about 2 years (plug and play) and was working before I decommissioned it.

PM Me otherwise i'd probably just toss it into the trash once i clean out my room.
ewaste should not go in the thrash

Electronics should never be put in the Blue Bin (recycling) or garbage. The City of Toronto collects unwanted electronics for free to ensure they are disposed of safely, recycled and kept out of landfill. Electronic items can be put out on garbage day for pickup, brought to a Drop-Off Depot or Community Environment Day or donated for reuse.

I have a 2-pack of M9s and there is something that people should be aware of. They function quite well overall, providing a good signal and decent coverage. However, the M9s do not actually function as a proper mesh router.

The problem came when I bought 2 additional units to improve coverage in my home. It seems that the remote units (the ones not connected to your ISP modem) will only connect to the base (the one connected to your ISP modem) unless they can get no signal to the base - only then do they connect to a closer unit. So, for example, even if a remote unit is only getting 10 Mbps from the base whereas connecting to a different remote unit would be 100 Mbps it will still connect to the base! This is all automatic, and there is no manual override. There are long discussion threads in TP-Link's forums discussing this issue. There are vague promises of firmware updates in the future to address this, but it's been going on for well over a year with no resolution (and it also affects other models).

This was very problematic for my setup, leading me to ultimately return the two additional M9s I purchased. So depending on your setup, ymmv.

I wouldn’t buy this, you are better off getting an EAP245 for a third of the price. Just use the router from your ISP. Mesh sucks if there is no ethernet back haul

WiFi 6e is around the corner. If you need something now and it has to be WiFi 6, then get the EAP660

Honestly, how many WiFi 6 devices do you have? More importantly, are you going to those devices to download large files? If not, what is the advantage of WiFi 6 for you? Do you have hundreds of WiFi devices?

@FrugalConsumer

I will take the switch off your hands if you still want to get rid of it
