The Family Doesn't Complain Anymore
Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2020
Man, I replaced my aweful Google WIFI with the Deco P9. It was easy. There isn't really too much to say. We have 4 people streaming, gaming and browsing all day, every day. And there aren't any issues. Mobile devices travel across access points in the mesh throughout the house. There are no dead spots even though we have thick, old walls. I have WIFI in the front yard, in the back yard and back in the parking area. That was all I needed. I am a little surprised that a cheaper solution replaced a garbage, expensive, non-solution from one of the largest companies in the world.
I was concerned after watching all of the videos and discovering that there was a configuration issue that would make it problematic for older devices to connect to the mesh network. However, when I installed everything, there was a firmware update that resolved the issue of not having separate 2.4Ghz/5Ghz bands. My Ring doorbell, thermostat and old firestick work just fine. I believe it had to do with that update.
If you have dead spots in your house. If you purchased Google WIFI, but the pucks don't communicate with one another, even if in the same room. If you have thick walls. If you have multiple floors and limited places to situate network hardware. This is the most perfect solution. I would know. I've spent thousands on expensive, overly huge routers. They didn't work as well or as simply as this. I'm quite happy with it.
