Mesh routers let you roam the house with a single network name and comes with many security features like anti-virus, parental control, traffic monitoring. Deco M5 is the cheapest among the brands and works really well. I replaced my premium router with this and got wider coverage at home.

Setting up is very simple. First primary unit is plugged to your current router. Subsequent units are placed in other rooms but it should still be close to one another so that the Wifi signal can be shared among the units and re-transmitted.

The distance among the mesh units should not be too far. During the setup, the app will guide you. If you find the speed is not good, try to place them closer. For instance, place one in the living room, another in the nearest bedroom, the last one in the further bedroom.

Not enough LAN ports compared to normal routers, so one way is to keep the existing router and connect the Deco M5 to the router's LAN port. I turn of the Wifi of the existing router to prevent any interference.

Mesh Wifi is the latest router system that achieves bigger coverage at home without using extenders and powerlines. I can move around the house without having to switch network names manually to get better speed.
