Ratings and Reviews
Super Simple, but has all the bells and whistles if needed
Hands down the best router I’ve ever had. I have a 3 story 3,400 sf. home. It covers my whole house. Zero dead spots, full bars at all times. Dual band simultaneously, so my PlayStation, iPhone and laptop connect on 5 GHz band, while some other use the 2.4Ghz band. The firmware update was dang near automatic. This thing literally holds your hand through the full setup. 99% of people will hit next, next, next, and so on until it’s setup. It asks one question that could throw you bout how you connect to your ISP, but for most people it is by dynamic address which it defaults to for you. Lastly, without geeking out, you can do IP reservations and a tons of other advanced cool stuff. And this was with the whole home mesh network Deco M3. Buy it!! You will not be disappointed - unless you’re the type of person who has to customize everything to death for absolutely no reason other than it makes you feel superior, lol.
Marginal at best, despite the hardware working well
For a long time now I knew that the previous version of this app was showing incorrect information in regards to my Deco system. It was showing Wi-Fi devices connected to deco units that was completely impractical and nearly impossible. Since my “stuff” connected well and had a great connection to Wi-Fi and the internet, I just ignored the info that the app was showing.
I was pretty excited a few weeks ago to open the app and see that it was completely revamped. It looks great. I quickly realized, however, that it was just new lipstick on the pig. In fact, it seems like the information was/is more incorrect than ever. Now it’s showing LOTS of my Wi-Fi devices as connected “wired”. That’s impossible. It’s showing some of my wireless devices connected a Deco unit that is so far from the device, it’s just not logical. And a “device health” test from those devices app shows a very solid and strong connection. Because of that I know that it’s connected to the closest Deco, not the farthest one as indicated by the app.
I don’t know. I guess this app update is a lateral step, but it does look a bit nicer. All of my devices still connect and work fine so there is nothing hardware wise to complain about. I just wish I could get accurate info from the app regarding the hardware and various connections. Maybe on the next major app overhaul?
Great except for missing features
My 3-piece Deco X60 mesh network works well in most ways, but is missing some key features. The most critical one is the ability to manually select what channel to use. The automatically selected channel mine picked is very crowded. This is such a standard feature I took it for granted I would have it before I bought it. I would have picked another product if I realized.
Less critically, but also a feature that would come in handy for me is to be able to force a selected device to connect to a specified frequency. I have a mixture of devices that use 2.4 or 5GHz frequencies. Mostly it’s fine to let the device choose. I have one device, though, (a VR headset) that works much better on 5GHz but left to connect on its own, often chooses the less optimal frequency, especially if it’s handed off from one router to another in the mesh. If I just disable the 2.4 band, that would disrupt a bunch of other devices. I also don’t want to dedicate the guest network, which is used for actual guests, to just the VR. A toggle in the device details to disable one of the frequencies for only that device would be great.
