If you’re in the market for a new router, and you’re having problems with dead spots in your home or office, you might want to think about a mesh system. While many WiFi extenders work with whatever existing router you already have, a mesh system replaces your existing router and any WiFi extenders with a master router and a number of satellites that you can place around the house. Unlike extenders, which create a separate network, which means you might see some drop in signal as you move from one part of the house—and one network—to another, mesh systems are all connected to the same network so service should be seamless. This Netgear set up comes with one router and one satellite, but it’s possible to buy sets with more satellites, or to add a satellite to an existing set up, if you extend your home, for example. And you can set it so the firmware automatically updates so you know you’re always running the latest tech.
