    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    Understood. How difficult is it to set up and configure Merlin? I see people talking about it all the time with the Asus routers, but I don't know anything about it. Is this some firmware I just upload to the router periodically, or are there special steps to get this going?

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    So, the reason I brought up the TP-Link C2300 is because I can get it for $70 on eBay from the official TP-Link store, and I would imagine I can get the Netgear 7800 for cheap too. For the price of one Asus RT-AX88U, I could almost buy 3 Eero Pro units. So if I were to go that route, what...

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    I have one last question before I pull the trigger on something (hopefully). My current house is 3100 sqft in roughly square shape (although part of that is the garage, so it is somewhat L shaped). My main router is near the front corner of the house. My current TP-Link C7 V2 has a...

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    That definitely makes sense, but I was just curious if this was still an "issue" or not.

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    I haven't purchased them yet, but I was considering doing so today. What kind of speeds are you seeing when connected to the Eero Pro (the main one and then the satellites)? After doing some searching I've seen people complaining about the speed (like max speed of around 200 or 250 mbps in the...

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    There is a targeted deal going around for Amex 20% off if you pay with points (you can use one point and still get the discount). You can use it multiple times, but there is a max discount ($50 I believe). It looks like I only have $27 remaining, so it would be that much off. I was hoping I...

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    Would the EdgeRouter X be more powerful than an Eero? I would assume either would be better than my current Archer C7 as a router.

    Considering an Eero Pro setup

    Amazon has refurbished Eero Pro's selling for $119 right now, and I have a stacking discount. So, I was considering replacing my old TP-Link C7 with two Eero Pro units (3100 sqft house). Right now the second unit would be using the wireless backhaul, but at some point in the future I may try...

    Question on setting up new MoCA adapters

    I haven't had FIOS (or any other cable) TV in over a year, so it would not compete with any TV boxes. It sounds like there is a lot more that goes into this than setting up powerline...

    Question on setting up new MoCA adapters

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Question on setting up new MoCA adapters

    I have Frontier Fios internet that comes in via ethernet cable. I do not have any kind of TV service (I just using streaming). Previously I had TV through Frontier, and at one point the internet came in via coax as well (before upgrading to the 500/500 speed I have now). I am interested in...

    Impressed by the TP-Link Archer A7

    This thing periodically goes on sale on Amazon for right over $50 (new). The A9 is also supposed to be nice and sometimes sells for a little over $70.

    Possible TP-Link Budget Upgrade

    Does anybody have any experience with the TP-Link Archer AX3000? I'm curious how that would compare to the models already discussed.

    Possible TP-Link Budget Upgrade

    From a range standpoint is the Archer C2300 better than the C7 V2? I understand that it is faster and more powerful. I've never had a router with beamforming, so I don't really understand how much that helps.
