Testing WiFi Mesh things
I am not a big fan of WiFi for streaming applications like HF radio, but I continue to keep playing around with different types of hardware.
I have had good luck with the Eeros and Google WiFi as my friends bought them based on my recommendation. I am
not now testing the TP-Link Deco M5 with 5 nodes.
So far, so good and I like the fact that I can have the backbone on LAN (ethernet). These are not TriBand devices but the price is about half the others.
TriBand is preferred as it moves all your traffic off the users frequencies.
Also, you should be able to connect your radio directly into the back of one of the nodes to give your radio a WiFi connection (subject to bandwidth restrictions). I will test this
I am interested in other Mesh solutions that are so easy to set it up, you can talk your grandmother how to do it over the phone. :)
This is a shot from my iPhone showing some of the traffic rates on 1 node.
