Okay I have a 2400 square foot ranch that when the basement is finished will be well over 4000 square feet....I am upgrading my network and making sure all my streamers and equipment work....also a goal is to be able to control access to certain devices (i.e. boys wake up they need to make their beds, brush their teeth before any netflix or games access). My question to you guys is is a mesh network better in this scenario, or would a wrt1900 acs in the middle of the house work....its a L shaped ranch and I would like wifi access out to my garage and bbq area about 100 feet outside the house. House was built in 1998 so wood and drywall only. any other info?
