About a year ago my trusty Apple Time Capsule started getting wonky with wifi. It would just drop out altogether and require a reboot to get it back. As it worsened I decided to get something different. Seems all the rage is Mesh router systems, and the reviews led me to the TP-Link M5 Deco system. Hit all the right buttons for me. Simple to setup even if it didn't offer some of the more advanced tweaks, Trend Micro's Internet security built in with 3-year subscription and they units are small and fairly attractive. At the time I had Mediacom's 100/10 service. Speedtest with the Deco's showed about 90Mbps which was a bit slower than I had been getting with the Apple Airport, but not a big deal I thought. Little did I know how much difference it would make. I upped my internet service to 200/20. Speedtest never got above 100Mbps with it, got Mediacom to come out and my cable modem was providing proper service, so it had to be the router. I let it go on for awhile, but finally decided this wasn't right and wondered if others were seeing the issue. Yep, a fair number of complaints with no solutions from either TP-Link or users. Conjecture was that it was the security suite at first, but killing that didn't help. Then the QOS settings were thought to be the culprit, but no, that wasn't it either. My thoughts are that the 3 units are just too damned chatty amongst each other and that was sucking the bandwidth. Don't know if I'm right or not, So yesterday I went and got a Linksys Maxstream 1900 router. WOW! That made a hell of a difference! Now speediest shows 210/28 fairly consistently and the drop off from the furthest distance I would ever be from it showed 180/20 minimum. And this isn't even a Mesh system. My house is about 1600 sq. ft. ranch style all one floor. Downside is no Internet Security, I'll take a look at using opendns to accomplish at least some of that. Turns out there are two mfgs that are doing Trend's Internet Security. ASUS and TP-Link.
