Mesh wifi

Anyone have experience with Mesh wifi sold at Amazon. Something easy to setup and requires no upkeep as these will be shipped to and installed by someone who is not technical.

Thank you

If they're invested in the Amazon ecosystem, get them that. If they're into Google, get theirs.

I went with the Deco M5 when I moved into a new house to replace my aging Onhub which would never cover the sq ft.

Happy so far. Fast and seamless.

I just added a mesh wifi extender this weekend. I got the Netgear EX7300. If you know the SSID and password of the person you are helping, you can pre-configure it via its web interface and than sent it to him or her. I picked up my unit on my way to work on Friday. Configured at work, when I got home I just plugged it into the wall power outlet and it was up and running. I did have to move to 3-4 different locations to get the best coverage. This unit also support WPS so basically, to set it up, power on unit, wait till it finishes booting, press WSP on the unit and than the WPS button on your existing router to pair it, that is it.
