Leo Laporte (The Tech Guy radio host) did a brief segment on mesh routers, the Eero in particular. It seems an interesting concept. From reading about them, one can have 2, 3, ... n, n+1 of them in a home operating to provide good coverage in a wide area. IF (if) wired ethernet is available the node will use the wire for the "backhaul" and if NOT available use wireless. These are (according to Leo's own tests) better than range extenders.
Does anyone have any experience using these with Maestro?
A few years ago I had set-up 3 Linksys WRT54 Wifi modems throughout the house and they worked great for me on the Mesh platform. I then moved onto Ubiquity products, and installed the router c/w TP-Links antenna onto the tower for a greater area coverage (Down the Street). I have since taken this equipment down because of a pending move, so unable to test out my Maestro at this time. All of my other Wifi devices worked with this set-up.
To read more on this Mesh stuff, go to both of these sites for more tech info.
Your question reminds me to check Maestro performance using my Sonos system. I wonder if anyone else has tried that? Although Sonos is primarily used to wirelessly distribute audio to standard HiFi speakers throughout a home, it also wirelessly distributes Ethernet to CAT5 jacks on each Sonos box. Conceptually, Sonos is somewhat similar to the Eero idea in that the Sonos boxes automatically network with each other wirelessly to extend LAN coverage. To extend Ethernet I've found them to be very robust - far superior to things like WiFi extenders and great at getting a streaming video to a TV. I'll give it a try this weekend.
