I have 3 Google onhubs and with Google dropping support end of year is this a worthwhile replacement?

Is there any risk of TP-Link dropping future support on these like Google did?

Bought this for myself as well as a cousin, works flawlessly.
Warranty though could be a miss since TP-Link website states warranty only for products sold thoughbofficial channels in Canada. (I received a bad power adapter and trying to figure what to do with it)
Also, check what version you get. V2.8 cannot auto update aince the last firmware release was in 2019 and it hasnt been updated. But the alternate is to use V2.0 firmware since they are compatible.
See this official post on community- https://community.tp-link.com/us/home/s ... ail/500258
Carpe Diem!

I was in the exact situation as you with 3 onhubs. Bought the M9 bundle back on boxing day and transition is fairly seamless. I'd say for less than $200CDN shipped it's a good alternative. The dedicated wireless backhaul band alone makes it superior to the google wifi setup. The only thing the Google wifi is superior on is it's app, it just gives more useful information imo.

I would say there's still a risk TPlink can drop support since this is still pretty much " cloud" based I guess. But Google is more known for giving up on projects.

You can still use your existing router, but it would be best to turn off the WiFi radio on the router and replace the WiFi with these. You can set them up to only do the WiFI (AP mode) and let your router handle the rest. That's what I have done.

I'm in the same position and not that savvy with tech. Have a few dead spots in the house. Is it simply just plugging in one of the pods to my existing Rogers modem/router combo (Rogers x Hitron CODA 4582) and following the Deco App instructions, then plugging in the other pods where required?

There's no need to go into the admin options and change anything else, correct? Much appreciated if someone could let me know.

It’s pretty straight forward to setup. You should watch a few videos first but you just download the Deco app and follow along.

It’s best to use the prepaid option. They charge the exact tax and only $1-for brokerage. Mine came via UPS so I was happy to spend $1-instead of $50-ish.

My setup is the same minus that I’ve set the Hitron to just its dumb bridge mode and I just use my own router. Setting these up is about as easy as you state, you only use the app for the setup. They can be a little finicky when setting up and discovery but as long as you have patience and retry once or twice, you’ll get there. Firmware updates are handled entirely through the app as well. I recommend wiring the first one up, doing the firmware update and making sure its working then wiring up the other two and doing the same.

I took the all inclusive, its not much and it avoids the risk as I’ve been nailed before for not doing so. Sometimes its just better to deal with the cost you know instead of rolling the dice.

Great deal for anyone getting into mesh network, that 3rd band is a godsend that many dont appreciate, especially with all these connected devices, and lack of wired backhaul for most people, that 3rd band is what keeps your network traffic flowing without cutting your bandwidth significantly vs dual-band wifi setups.

Should be a pretty straight setup,

select the first router as AP / router mode, then there should be a option to add node / satellite unit.

I have the Asus ZenWiFi and its similar setup wise to pretty much any mesh network in the market.

Once you are all set, go ahead and go into your rogers routers admin page [192.168.x.x] (x = number i think its 0.1]. and disable wifi, and put the modem into bridge mode as that is all you need it doing.

I cannot speak for TP-Link but for my Asus ZenWiFi I have it set to auto-restart every Sunday at 6am, I find it if I do the auto-restart, things work flawlessly everyday/week/month and now that were just over a year since that was implemented, for the first 6 months or so I didn't have it setup to auto-restart and I noticed 2-3 times in those 6 months where restarting would fix my internet connection issue.

Yes.
This has 2-ports on the back of each pod. One is Ethernet in and one is Ethernet out. Plug the switch in the out port.

My main pod’s Ethernet in is plugged in the ISP gateway and the out Ethernet in to a switch the feeds the wired devices including the other two pods.

Got this from the same vendor 1+ year ago - works flawlessly (update firmware right away). Added the 3 M9's to a set of 9+ M5's. Due to too many devices connected, the M5's were choking (due to lack of dedicated backhaul). The M9 difference has been quite positively dramatic, even though only wireless backhaul is being used. The good thing is that the M9's and M5's coexist and the mesh can be optimized through the mobile app. It's important to make the mother node an M9.
