Mesh routers are a boon for our modern tech-filled households. No longer do we have to worry about devices not getting a decent connection in the far reaches of our houses, nor do we have to keep babysitting the network, making sure things work as expected, or using unreliable extenders. Mesh systems are smarter, more powerful, and often more stable than a simple router. If you'd like to see what the fuss about them is and save a pretty penny in the process, you can now get between $100 and $220 off on Linksys' Velop mesh. Read More
The benefits of a mesh Wi-Fi system are numerous: better coverage, no single point of failure, modular expandability, and maintenance of a single SSID and connection throughout the home. With numerous players in this competitive field, prices have become a lot more affordable on these once very expensive mesh systems. Linksys, a well-known name among networking companies, has the Velop line, and there is a significant markdown today on one of its offerings. A two-pack of tri-band routers currently only costs $200 on Amazon, which is a saving of $100 on the usual $300 retail price. Read More
Google Wifi is one of the best-known mesh WiFi solutions, especially among non-techie types, but that doesn't mean there aren't other great products that offer a similar experience.

A three-pack of dual-band routers currently only costs $229 on B&H, which saves you $70 on the usual $299 retail price. Read More

My family lives in a somewhat large house, and Xfinity's 'Wireless Gateway' router has never done a great job at coverage. Several rooms had poor reception or dead spots, particularly in the upstairs area. I bought a basic Netgear range extender as a band-aid solution, but for whatever reason, some of my devices (including my Google Pixel) still refuse to connect to it.
Last year at CES, Linksys announced its first mesh Wi-Fi system, called 'Velop.' The tri-band 2x2 802.11ac connectivity was a major selling point, but it was rather expensive — a 3-pack would set you back $500. The company launched a new dual-band Velop lineup last month, created to directly compete with the Google Wifi and other consumer mesh network systems. Read More
