This vs Velop, anyone have experience with both?

Quick look at specs this does not have a dedicated backhaul like the Velop does.

I got these on Black Friday for $225 and so far couldn't be happier. I have them wired, so dedicated 1GB backhaul, and I have one on each floor. Went from barely getting 20 mbps in some spots to now getting well over 300 mbps everywhere.

most mesh if not all need to be the router/dhcp provider.

You can't mix brands and expect them to mesh. As individual APs, mixing shouldn't be a problem.

I have installed 2 of these kits ($180 new ea). They work great! My biggest complaint is that they have simple configuration options, and their app isn't the best at reporting active devices & new device connections. So they're good for home user installation with simple wifi needs. You don't have to use them in multiples of 3, you can split the set and use 1, 2 or up to 9(?) in one location.

ok so what you would want is a mesh sysytem that supports "bridge mode" not be confused with puting your modem into bridge mode. Some do
tenda
eero
blume
Linksys Velop
TP-Link Deco
Netgear Orbi
https://www.tp-link.com/ca/support/faq/ ... lect-local

so I am correcting myself and saying that it can work with your router.

The trick all the pods have to connect to the pods only and only one main pod connects to the router. Does it work? thats gonna be upto you as i don't own one. It does or will pretty much cripple any extra functions that go along with nat control like parental controls etc etc

I got the Deco M9 during black Friday for $220. I've been having issues with the crappy Gigabit modem Roger provides and this improved it drastically.
