Well the GT-AX6000 is ordered. Now I'm still looking at adding a second router, or such, to extend my wifi, and keep it as strong as possible in my home. As I mentioned in my last post, kind of want something lower profile, and not a straight up router. Incase I need to put it out in the open, I want to to look clean, with some shelf appeal. Definitely want something a bit up to date with some pretty decent AX speeds.
I know there has to be a few of you on here who has some secondary devices for boosting your wifi. What are some of you using? I want something I don't have to worry about having issues staying connected. Which seems to be an issue with many mesh systems, and such, looking over reviews. Currently looking to spend a max of $300-400 on secondary wifi unit.
So you're looking for essentially a mesh system. I find that the ZenWiFi AX with XT8's works really well at my house. With the tri-band radios, works great using wireless backhaul. Full speed everywhere. And I can put the remote node in the living room without have my wife object...doesn't look like art, but sitting on a side table, doesn't attract the eye, either.
The problem that you may run into with the GT-AX6000 in a mesh (the router I'm using at the moment for my whole house *smile*) is that it only has two radios. Unless you are going to wire connect your mesh, you will see a real speed impact from not having 3 radios on your mesh nodes. This is from my experience with meshes over the years...have used a couple. One of the poor results that I had was with two RT-AC86U routers using AiMesh. Due to the two radios per node using wireless backhaul, got a little more that half the speed that I was hoping for. That one didn't last long *smile*.
