Anyone have these and can report their performance after a few years? Especially if they bought refurb?

I have had the M5 for a year and it's starting to give me issues. Read the same from other M5 owners after around the same time.

E - for reference, Airport Extremes were $200 each and worked well for around six years.

M9 is way better than M5. Tri-band vs dual band makes quite the difference in performance. I have both and fully switched over to M9 for about two years now. I would jump on this if i did not already have a set.

If you’re able to have a wired backhaul, the M5 is great otherwise go M9. I have the M5 and am pleased with how well it handled two kids in virtual school/YouTube and two full time jobs worth of Teams meeting over the past year.

I tried searching online and can't find whether you can make multiple ssids? For example I currently have an ssid for my regular devices and a separate ssid for 2.4ghz for my smart devices/automation.
Anyone that has these can confirm?

FWIW i have these now and am not even using them, having a very hard time getting them to play nice with the Bell HH3000....I want to run them in router mode so i can use the advanced features like parental controls but can't get them to work right because you can't put the HH3000 in bridge mode. They work marginally better but still get horrible speeds when they are in AP mode. May be just me, bit for now the HH3000 alone works better than these do...

sounds like a configuration issue to me.

you can make 2 SSIDs - a "main" & you can use the guest network as the 2nd SSID.

You can specify the bandwidth for each SSID......I use my main for 5ghz only (and name it accordingly) & use the the guest SSID for 2.4Ghz only. I connect all my unimportant wifi devices to the 2.4Ghz (i.e. smart switches, Google Nest doorbell, tablet for CP24)..................and throw all my "important" devices onto the main 5Ghz SSID....

I'm on Bell using the Deco M9 Plus - like you said, you can't put the Bell HH3000 in "bridge" mode only but you can turn off Wifi on the HH3000.

So I turn off wifi on the HH3000 and connect the main Deco M9 Plus via ethernet to the HH3000. I have 2 other Deco M9 plus pods connected via wireless throughout the house.

Works amazingly well & set up was a breeze. If you have straight forward networking / wifi needs, then the Tplink Deco mesh system is a good option.........

I have a house ~2800 sq.ft with high 9foot ceilings in the basement, main & 2nd floor and have 3x Deco M9 plus pods..........provides strong wifi coverage throughout and very consistent speeds (wired & wireless)....


this is a good price, I wish I had this option when I bought my Deco system. I ended up buying a 2pack & a single...............

I bought the refurbished m9 plus (3-pack) last year from b&h for the same sale price and it's been great, no issues, no dead spots, highly recommended.

Did it come with the TP-Link Homecare? I really want to get them but some online reviews said the Homecare cannot be activated on the refurbished products.

I have the deco M5 with wired back haul but still have some dead spots. Can this be used in conjunction with the M5?

If someone in Ottawa only needs two, I’d take the third for 1/3 of the price. I have 2 Deco X20 already.
