Hello everyone, I'm 100% at dusk, and today I will bring you the purchase analysis of mesh routers. I hope to help you.
This article is written because as the domestic network environment is getting better and the gradual popularization of NAS, people have higher and higher requirements for home network layout, and choosing mesh routers in large rooms has become a trend. Well, no more nonsense, let's drive.
What is Mesh
Mesh network, or "wireless mesh network", is a "multi-hop" network. It is developed from an ad hoc network and is one of the key technologies to solve the "last mile" problem. In the evolution to the next generation network, wireless is an indispensable technology. Wireless mesh can communicate with other networks in a coordinated manner. It is a dynamic and continuously expandable network architecture. Any two devices can maintain wireless interconnection.

In simple terms, compared to wireless bridging, different access points can be connected to the network in a mesh or serial manner, and a single node can be connected to the entire network layout in the best way for link connection. So as to achieve the effect of network self-optimization. Compared with the traditional bridging networking method, Mesh networking has the advantages of easy installation, strong stability (self-healing), and high bandwidth.
For ordinary users, the convenience is that the SSID of the entire Mesh network is unified. Wireless devices can connect to the best node in their location for linking. When users move, the connected nodes can seamlessly switch.
How to choose Mesh
I originally wanted to write some theories, but there have been many big guys who wrote about Mesh-related options. Today I will directly talk about which Mesh routers are worth considering.
▲ The official nominal transmission rate is 1300Mbps at 5GHZ.
▲ According to the personal experience of liuspy from this site, the highlight of this route is that it is cheap. The PDD drive price is only 140 yuan / piece, and the 120m model is enough. Of course, as a purely entry-level Mesh router, due to cost reasons, there are many disadvantages, such as a particularly strong sense of cheapness, there are certain problems with heat dissipation, and a slight discount in speed. . .
