My story. I used to be a FIOS customer. They got purchased by Frontier. (Service and quality both deteriorated) My wireless router is a part of the ACTIONTEC modem/router combo.
I live in a multi level four bedroom and I’m looking to upgrade the wireless coverage. My wife, son and I all have laptops, ipads, iphones, Amazon firesticks, raspberry pis and a smattering of older computers connected to the network. The number of devices on the network is surprising for a home network. Almost everything is wireless, too.
I have a repeater downstairs, but it, too has several years of use on it.
I want to 1) take advantage of the latest network speeds but support older protocols 2) have the best quality connectivity 3) add wireless security systems and home automation to the network.
I’ve looked at mesh networks, multiple wireless networks and bridging and various other solutions. The options are somewhat bewildering.
I know there was a previous thread talking about setting up two routers together, but that was several years ago. So…
I wanted to ask about people’s experiences with
Google’s router equipment such as their Google - developed OnHub Wi - Fi Router, Home Security/Smart Appliances/Movie Streaming/etc., for Uniform Management of Your Household Wireless Environment
Linksys Velop Tri-Band Home Mesh WiFi System - WiFi Router/WiFi Extender for Whole-Home Mesh Network (3-pack, White)
any other network setup recommendations.
I’m leaning towards RING security systems, too, which I know are integrated with Alexa. Any thoughts on this are appreciated.
