My wife is working from home, & now wants to work out on the deck since the weather is cooling off. We currently have a Netgear N750 WNDR4000 router. It’s several years old. Last year we replaced our modem, & this router seemed to work well with it. We have Comcast Xfinity WiFi.
When we bought a Roku TCL tv last year, we had a bit of trouble connecting to wifi, but moving the router seemed to solve the problem. The coverage to the deck is spotty. So we were thinking a mesh system might be in order.
Most mesh systems I’m looking at seem to be dual band. I keep reading that tri band is the only way to go. Yet the Google Nest 3 pack seems to get high marks from many publications. It is dual band.
We have an iMac, a work Windows laptop, 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 Alexa units, & 3 roku TV/boxes dependent on the system. At any time several can be in use at a given time.
So I’m asking for guidance from people more knowledgeable than I. Is the mesh system the answer? Is dual band enough? Would eero be a better choice given our Amazon units? Is there anything else important I’m missing? Is the lack of ethernet ports on the Nest satellite units a consideration?
I would appreciate any guidance you might have to offer. BTW we have a 2 story house with a finished basement. Somewhere around 2500 to 3000 sq. feet.
Thank you so much for any help you could offer!
