Wi-Fi can be a cumbersome issue to solve especially when Zoom calls are dropping out and everyone looks likes a blurry mess, but Mesh Wi-Fi is a new kid on the block that can solve some of your spotty Wi-Fi connections at home.
In this article, we'll take a look at the different Mesh Wi-Fi brands based on price and features. I've even reviewed Asus's CT8 AC3000 Mesh Wi-Fi which you can watch below!
What is Mesh Wi-Fi?
While people have called it a Mesh Wi-Fi extender, they're not exactly wrong.
Basically, it's a simplified way of connecting multiple wireless routers easily, and a good Mesh Wi-Fi network will cover every inch of your home with Wi-Fi. The best part is that companies have invested more time into making the setup process easy.
No more typing weird IP addresses into your Google Chrome browser. So let's take a look at the best Mesh Wi-Fi options for your home!
Most Affordable Mesh Wi-Fi
TP-Link Deco HC4 AC 1200
At $89, this is one of the cheapest, most affordable two-piece Mesh Wi-Fi in the market now. It performs decently well using Wi-Fi 5 at 1200Mbps theoretical combined speeds.
Setup is relatively simple using their Deco app which can be downloaded on the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store.

TP-Link Deco M5 AC1200
If you need more features like a built-in antivirus scanner by Trend Micro and a more minimal design, TP-Link's Deco M5 will slot nicely into your decor at home.
Coming in a two-piece pack, the Deco M5 is slightly faster on Wi-Fi 5 at 1300Mbps theoretical combined speeds.
