    5.0 out of 5 stars Finally WiFi that doesn't feel compromised
    By ARVIN CASTRO on June 13, 2020
    I have Verizon FIOS bundled service, so I have my TV, phone and internet all-in-one. While I do love FIOS, one of the negatives is that I had to use their bundled Gateway modem/router because of my TV and phone services. My house does have a wired ethernet network running thru it, which is great for all my desktop PC's and Home Theater setup, but the FIOS Gateway router's WiFi performance didn't adequately cover my three floor house (the FIOS modem is in my garage, next to my home wired-network box). To help solve this issue, I tried using the very well reviewed Netgear EX6200 range extender, but I could never get reliable performance out of it...random drops, slow speeds...it just didn't seem to like working with my FIOS router.

    In looking for a better solution, my research led me to looking into Mesh networking, especially as these systems (supposedly) would not need to bypass my FIOS modem...it would work with it, just taking over the WiFi functions. I was apprehensive, so I wanted a cost effective product. Tp-Link's Deco series have gotten rave reviews and their latest S4-series was actually cheaper than the previous M4-series, so I took the plunge.

    Getting the Deco S4 up and running is so much simpler than traditional WiFi extenders and boosters...download the TP-Link mobile app, launch it, pick your TP-Link product and it guides you through the whole process. There were some hiccups during installation, mainly where the app failed in finding the S4 devices on the first pass, but hitting the Try Again button solved the issue. The S4 router unit (all three are identical) simply plugs into any open port on the back of the FIOS modem. Once the Mesh network is setup on this S4 router, you can now easily add the other units throughout your home using the app. The app has a lot of functionality...you can set-up usage profiles, "Blacklist" devices from using your network, monitor network health and utilization, etc. Two other benefits with the S4 Deco units are that each includes two auto-sensing Gigabit ethernet ports (useful for network switches/hubs or plugging in non-WiFi devices, etc.) and that they are compatible with all TP-Link WiFi devices, so expansion and upgrades are easy.

    Coverage is excellent. The big benefit to a Mesh network is that all the S4 units are essentially operating as one...so, as you move throughout your house (or even outside!), your devices simply pick-up the strongest signal from the best available S4 router. You don't need to manually switch from network to network like you would with a traditional WiFi extender. Speeds are surprisingly fast. I only have FIOS 100/100 service, but I am getting WiFi speeds of 100+ Mbps on my ground and third floors (both S4 units are wired) and almost a full 80 Mbps on my second floor with a non-wired S4 unit. Outside on my back deck, speed drops to "only" 60 Mbps...incredible! I spent about 4 hours stress testing the network and found it to be rock solid...very consistent and dependable WiFi performance.

    If there were two things I'd list as negatives, they would be the lack of a web-based network tool/programmer (everything has to be done on the mobile app) and that there was a way to identify/isolate usage between the 2.4 and 5.0 bands.

    This is a long review, but to sum it up, the Deco S4 is a great product. It's simple to set-up, works with your existing modem (a HUGE plus for Verizon FIOS users), doesn't act like a bottleneck and offers a huge area of coverage. And there's the very nice price. I finally feel like I'm getting all the WiFi I'm supposed to be getting!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Deco Powerline Mesh Solved my Wi-Fi problems in the house
    Reviewed in Canada on February 25, 2020
    I had weak and dead spots even though I had two rather expensive routers with one acting as an extender in bridge mode. When my internet connections became generally unstable I decided to move on to the mesh system. I had a good experience with the power line extenders from TP-Link so decided to go with the Deco Powerline. I am glad I did. In my office on my lower level I was lucky to get 6 Mbps, now I get over a hundred mbps(The picture is of a speed test that I ran in my office.) !

    Setup was theoretically easy. Initially I had problems maintaining a stable internet connection. Naturally I spent time troubleshooting the more complex possibilities instead of doing the obvious. I unplugged the ISP provided modem and the main Deco unit. I left them unplugged for a couple of minutes. Plugged the ISP modem first and then the Deco. Problem solved! It may not matter but I connected the top jack of the main deco to the modem and the lower one to my network switch with eight ports.

    If there is a weakness, it is the app. It is too simplistic and fails to provide advanced options. The average user may find it sufficient and be satisfied but I found it frustrating for troubleshooting purposes. I wish, for instance, it would allow me to know how good the connections are between the various Decos and not just a "healthy" rating. It also lacks WPS to quickly add devices.

    That being said we live in an "L" shaped bungalow and the router is at the far end in our living room. It is a challenging topography to ensure a great wi-fi connection throughout our house. Inside the house the weakest spot in the lower level now receives over 70 Mbps, before it receive none ! I will need to add more Deco units (trying the E4) to extend effectively to our garage in order to increase bandwidth to devices that I have outdoors and in the garage.

    In the end what I needed was an improved Wi-Fi network in my house as we have over 60 Wi-Fi devices including four smart home hubs and a variety of Amazon Alexa devices, that connect to it, and the Deco Powerline has solved all my issues. So far I am very pleased! Video streaming no longer buffers.

    Tip: I used the same SSID (Network name) and password as I had on my old router. I did not need to configure any of my devices though I did have to restart some. Depending on how many devices, I found it took some time for devices to rejoin the network. Remember to disconnect the modem and the main Deco for a couple of minutes if you have Internet issues during setup.

    Issues:
    - If you have older cameras and devices which have connectivity issues, turn off "fast roaming" in the advanced settings. Fast roaming is taken advantage of by the client and not the router/APs. Older clients have issues with
    - Can't turn off the 5 ghz network ( no control)
    - Only a single SSID is displayed for both bands.
    - Can't identify via the app the load on access points or which devices are connected to them.
    - Can't identify the speed on individual access points.
    - Sometimes the app shows APs as disconnected when apparently they are not.
    - No WPS

    Despite the limitations of the application that manages the system, the connectivity has been excellent and stable. I added the Deco E4 successfully to this set.
