    Mesh Network Question...Too many nodes??

    I've posted previously about getting a third node for my Asus ZenWifi XT8 network. (LSS: you CAN buy just one). My question now is whether I should. I have roughly 1750 sq ft. of Living Space and 2 nodes. From the literature, it *seems* like a single node should cover the whole house but it...

The...
