Tried various Wifi extenders over the years with not so good results.
So looked at this mesh system which was satisfying the requirement (coverage around 9k sq ft) and finally took the bait notwithstanding the high upfront investment. Glad to say that 1 year down the line, the experience has been flawless with good speeds throughout the house. Some drop in pings (if you are a gamer) through satellites, but does every other job without fail.
Worth every rupee spent on this system.
I use this system with 1 additional satellite to cover 3 floors (G+2) and it does the job perfectly. I'm loving the speed i get on 2nd floor which comes through Router > 1st Floor Satellite>2nd Floor Satellite. I must also mention that I live in a pretty old built house with thick walls still the coverage is awesome, you just need to be careful about placements of the Satellite's vis-a-vis the router!
I personally face very low speed loss even on the 2nd Satellite, Mesh is a must have system for bigger or old multi level homes.
Expensive but excellent Product
its great to have the best of mesh network router
Was apprehensive about ordering this product but the performance of this genie is amazing. Covers almost 75% of 10k sq.ft home across 3 floors without major drop in speeds. Wonderful and unmatchable product!
