There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
REVIEW: OK, so one of the main reasons why TP-Link seems to be pushing use of an app is to make this easy to set up. The experience is very straightforward, walking you though the steps. I have a lot of experience setting up network gear, so was very appreciative of the great guided software setup. I am confident my mom would be able to install this (and she can barely figure out how to use the microwave). So good job on that, TP-Link.
One issue did occur during setup: I followed all the steps (including using MAC clone - thank you for including that in the setup options!), but the TP-Link router failed to connect to the internet (just had a red light, indicating an issue). I let it sit for about 10 minutes, then it magically fixed itself. I assume it was doing a firmware update or something along those lines, but the app didn't show anything. It would be good for TP-Link to check this and update the app/software, so users know what the setup is doing.
I knew I'd have to use an app to configure the product before buying this, and wondered to myself, "How bad could it be? I'm sure it has all the features, you just have to use the app." Well, it does have common features like Port Forwarding and the ability to set up a Guest network, for instance. But these are some features which are NOT present and are an absolute deal breaker for me:
* No MAC address filtering (just a blacklist to ban IPs): Ok, that's great that there's a blacklist, but how do you know who to block? And, I understand fully that MAC addresses can be spoofed and it is NOT a replacement for good encryption (WPA2, WPA3, etc.). But MAC address filtering is yet another feature that can be used to help strengthen a network. And TP-Link's mesh solutions do not have this feature, a basic option that has been available in networking products for over 10 years.
* No ability to create separate 2.4ghz and 5ghz networks: I'm sure many of you have smart plugs and other "internet of things" devices that only function on 2.4ghz bands. Well, with this product, you can't set up a separate WiFi network for them. I did some searching on the internet and TP-Link's suggestion is to set up the Guest network to only use 2.4ghz, and then put smart plugs on that. While that works.. this then means that your guests, if they use your guest network, will only have a 2.4ghz band to use. That's OK for basic stuff but to stream video and do other high-bandwidth activities, you'll want to use 5ghz. Hence, I don't think this is a good workaround. Some folks on TP Link support forums claimed they could create the main network as 2.4ghz only, join smart devices to that, THEN enable 5ghz and things still worked. But I was so frustrated by having to search support forums on this topic that I just left this as is.
* Guest network is TOTALLY isolated from main WiFi network and cannot talk to intranet devices: I use an adblocking server and have other resources within my network that I would like everyone on my intranet to be able to access (including those on my Guest network!) So as you saw above, smart plugs etc. can't talk on 5ghz so I tried the workaround to use a Guest network with only 2.4ghz. However, this broke several of my devices I put on the guest network, which were then unable to resolve DNS entries on the internet due to my setup leveraging an adblocker.. WHICH IS HOSTED ON THE MAIN WIRELESS NETWORK, as one would expect. There is also NO ability to toggle this setting at all. It is fixed in stone: Guest network devices will NEVER be able to talk to the intranet or other devices on your main WiFi network. This is clearly done for security, but since I am managing my own network, I know who should have access to what, and I should have the ability (in software!) to configure this the way I want to. Nope! Not possible with the current version of TP-Link's Deco app...
CLOSING THOUGHTS: If you have basic requirements (just need to setup a wireless network, don't care about smart devices using a 2.4ghz guest network, no custom adblocking solution and no need for deep configurability of your network), then this TP-Link product is a great value. The price is very reasonable, and the range/speed provided by this product is FANTASTIC. I had nearly 100% of my rated internet speed EVERYWHERE in my house, wirelessly, even though the TP-Link router was upstairs and the node was downstairs. They were using the 2nd 5GHZ band for wireless backhaul and it was amazing to see! I love the power and capability of the mesh system. I was concerned there were only 2 devices included (instead of 3), but TP-Link knows what they are doing with coverage and speed: No dead zones, and the product performed rock solid for the days that I had it.
However.. if you have other needs or aspirations for your network, and want more configurability, then this is not a good option. For a point of reference, consider how TP-Link compares to ASUS's fantastic software:
* MAC Address filtering: ASUS has it, TP-Link doesn't.
* Separate 2.4ghz and 5ghz networks for main WiFi network: ASUS has this, TP-Link doesn't.
* Guest network: Both offer guest networks, but ASUS offers the ability in some products (example: ASUS RT-AX3000, and I'm sure many others) to create up to *six* guest networks (three for 2.4ghz band, three for 5ghz band). And for each of those, you can control whether they are isolated or have access to your intranet. THANK YOU, ASUS!
By the way, I've used Netgear products as well (Nighthawk), and they also offer these features. Not sure why TP-Link isn't providing these basic features. Check the support forums for TP-Link and you'll see many threads where customers are complaining about this, and TP-Link mentions sometimes it'll be added to a future firmware release, but these threads are years old and this brand-new product still doesn't offer a complete feature set. So, if the software doesn't have what you need today, there is no guarantee it will tomorrow. If the product's current limitations fit your needs, then this product is highly recommended & you will be absolutely THRILLED and DELIGHTED by the speed and range of this system. Otherwise, I advise using something else.
I really wanted to like the TP-Link Deco X68, but the software and lack of configurability is a massive letdown. If I kept this, I would have had to reconfigure my network, figure out another way to block ads on my network, etc. Not worth the hassle.. so I returned this. The search continues for a good, affordable, Tri-Band WiFi-6 Mesh networking product.
The biggest advantage this model has over the competition is the range. The range on this is unlike anything I've ever seen on a consumer device. I can be at the edge of my backyard, at least 75 feet from the Deco, and on the other side of a brick wall and I still get excellent coverage. I also love that they will "mesh" with other Deco devices, so if you have older Decos or need to expand your coverage, you can add other Deco devices to your network, not just other X90s.
The Decos themselves are fairly attractive and look good sitting on a tabletop. I like that they are both identical and you can simply designate which one you want to be the "main" Deco (the one connected to your modem). Each Deco has a 1gb and a 2.5gb ethernet port. The ports will auto-configure, which is pretty handy. You can use either as your WAN port. If you connect the Decos together, it will create a wired backhaul. You can connect an unmanaged switch to a port if you need more hardwired connections. Its all very simple and the end user doesn't have to worry about configuration. It would have been nice to have a USB port though, to connect a printer or hard drive.
This ends up being one of my biggest gripes though: the lack of customization. TPLink has put a great deal of effort into their Deco app, and it shows. Compared to other mesh network apps (Orbi, ASUS, etc.) this app is by far the most polished. The interface is responsive, and they put common options in multiple places, so no matter what logic you apply to your menu selections, you can still end up finding what you need. That said, you're pretty limited on what you can do. QoS was one of the features I was looking forward to the most, and I was incredibly disappointed with TPLink's offerings. All you can do is set devices to be "high priority." It's either regular priority or "high" priority. You can set certain types of device (like multimedia) to be high priority without setting them all individually. You can't order the devices by priority. You can't assign certain traffic to be high priority. For example, Zoom calls use ports 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 5090, 5091, 8801-8810. It would be awesome to be able to set a rule that, between 7am and 5pm and these ports would get priority, but there's no option for that.
The app is just seems incredibly limited if you know a bit about networking. For example, I wanted to put all my smart home devices on their own VLAN. This is possible, but incredibly difficult to setup because of the way these Decos handle DHCP. Its like they don't expect anyone to actually segregate their internet traffic, so you have to use some meandering methods to achieve the results you want. I wish they had an "advanced" mode that you could enter if you feel comfortable getting into the weeds.
Annoyingly, TPLink doesn't provide all the features out of the box. They want you to subscribe to their pro service which is around $5 a month depending on if you pay month to month or yearly. Either way, its a huge disappointment. You get a month long trial, so I tried it and it was worthless for me. I hoped it would offer more QoS features, but all I can really tell that it does is unlock more Parental Control features. The features themselves are actually pretty good. You can assign devices to different "profiles" and then set rules for that profile. Its pretty well done. Like you can set "Johnny's" devices to stop connecting to the internet after 10 pm on week nights, or create a white list or black list of websites. You can even set bandwidth limits for certain users. Its just hard to justify having to pay extra money for features, especially when you're paying $500 for the hardware, and other brands offer similar features for free.
My biggest issue with this mesh system is that is continuously drops connections with some of my devices, especially newer iPhones and Mac laptops. This seems to only affect mobile devices. I have a desktop computer hardwired into one Deco and my Xbox hardwired into the other, and neither have had any connection issues, but multiple iPhones and MacBooks have had issues maintaining a connection as they move through the house. I've experimented with the Fast Roaming and other settings, but no luck. My firmware is up to date. I even manually installed a newer firmware that wasn't showing up in the Update feature on the app. I've tried everything. I've rebooted the devices. Nothing could fix this. I'd carry my laptop upstairs and I'd lose internet. This happened multiple times per day, and TPLink Support couldn't provide anything other than "make sure your firmware is up to date."
I ended up returning it and getting an ASUS mesh system. I like the ASUS more. It has so many more options for customization and my connection doesn't drop. It does, however, have much worse range and its not as fast. The app is also pretty ugly and hard to use, but maybe that comes with having so many more functions. I love that I can schedule reboots on the ASUS and customize exactly what each channel gets used for.
Overall, if you want/need long range connectivity, and you can live with the connection dropping momentarily through the day, then the X90 will probably make you very happy. Its range is incredible. Its speed is awesome. And its app is very nice to use. If you don't handing the reigns over to the device to basically control itself, then you will probably like this product. I think there is a lot of overlap between the non-technical consumer who wants good Wifi with easy setup, and the consumer who can tolerate a little lag when watching YouTube because their device's connection dropped for 30 seconds.
If you expect rock solid reliability then you should look into Orbi. If you want to customize settings all day, then get ASUS. If you want an easy to use but kind of stripped down mesh WiFi experience, TPLink seems great, but I'd consider one of their cheaper systems, like the Deco X68 which is half the price. For what TPLink is charging for the X90, it just doesn't deliver.
The biggest problem is that you cannot have more than one SSID assigned to your private “home” network. I have over 100 wifi devices. My low power devices run on the 2 ghz band called “Home2g” while my computers and more powerful devices run on the 5ghz band SSID “Home”. They all need to be on the same network, but “split-SSID” configuration just isn’t supported at all. Every other router I’ve had for the last decade has supported this configuration.
The second major problem is that this mesh does not support bridge mode. I have an expensive router that handles my dhcp with a custom configuration. It is useless with this mesh appliance.
Third major problem is that the device needs an iPhone app to configure it. This is a more recent trend in these sorts of devices. Yea, I don’t want that.
