    1st world problem rant: After over 2 years of suffering super iffy wifi after moving into my new home, I am so excited by the amazing performance these babies produce. I’ve spent so much on mesh systems, settling originally on a nest wifi system. The network was so iffy, it would drive me up the wall while I was trying to work. I assumed that the setup of my house just meant it was like this. I can say these bad boys have far exceeded my expectations. I’m getting the same data rates in my entire home. The 6e dedicated backhaul is super impressive.The price to value is really the best for this tech level. Triband, 6e it’s great. Black Friday deal made it just over 300 for 3 of them. It’s insane.Get these try them out, I think you are going to be super happy.

    All Good

    I bought  Deco XE75 to replace a Wifi 5 mesh router and I can say that 2 of these replace 6 of wifi 5 mesh routers.  Now the speed is 650-700 mbps download and 700-800 upload on the main Deco and  450-500mbps download at the end of my house that is approximately 65-70 meters away from the main Deco. The second unit is placed in the middle around 35 feet from the first one. The coverage is about the same as the previous 6 unit mesh, but slightly stronger signal at the edges. Very impressed and satisfied for now with this product. I left the 6E band to be used as backhaul. When I tested the 6E the speed did not increase a lot near the main unit, but  it dropped a bit at the last Deco. When the 6E is used for wifi, the units use 5Ghz band for backhaul along with all other devices and the speed drops if you have many devices connected to your network. The app is simple and it doesn’t give you many options, but it is functional. The only thing that I am missing is the remote speed test function.

    Mesh is the way to go

    If your home wifi has areas with weak or nonexistent signals, mesh is definitely the way to go, and this TP-Link Deco AXE5400 is definitely the way to go mesh.We’ve had fiber optic for a while, and it always speed-tested very well near the modem/router supplied by our internet provider. The speed fell off quite a bit, however, the further away we got from the m/r, to the point we could not rely on it to consistently meet our needs in our home office. Very frustrating to have fiber optic but not be able to have it show its stuff.I had been hearing about the advantages of mesh wifi and decided to research it. My research convinced me the TP-Link Deco AXE5400 offered the best combination of features for the price. It has not disappointed.

    Most affordable and best performance.

    got the eero pro 6E (3 units) and the speed test was 1/3 of what i got for deco xe 75. I had a gaming router from TP-link before this and used it for like 7 years without problem but I moved to a new place and it has too many obstacles that made my speed drop and the connection was unstable. decided to try the eero pro 6E since it’s like 40% off ($400 for 3 units) right now and extremely disappointed compared deco XE75. I bought a quick 2 units configuration for $250 to test and compare to the eero, then I was going to return it and buy the 3 units one if it worked out. However, it worked way beyond my expectation, with just 2 units for like $150 bucks cheaper, my speed test was able to reach almost max speed in my bedroom via a mesh node. upstairs and downstair also triple in speed compared to the eero. Decided to keep the 2 units, since it just working so well i don’t need to spend more than I have to. Saved like half of what I initially spent on the eero and drastically increase in performance. I’m sticking with the TP-Link for network devices from now on.

    Fast, Strong signal, but sllllow setup

    TP-Link XE75 (AEX5400) is very fast, but the complete setup took over 9.5 hours. My recent transition from an Amplifi wi-fi 5 mesh network to the TP-Link Wi-Fi 6e should have been seamless. I reused the current SSID and passphrase I already had in place. I have 38 smart and internet connected devices connected to my network. These range from smart switches, plugs, thermostats, vacuums, Lutron bridge, TVs, Ring alarm and cameras, Echo dots, and various entertainment equipment. When I first connected the XE75 I hardwired my PC to the router and connected my router to my TP-Link 16 port unmanaged switch. I had the internet on my PC and my phone. Controlling the router/ network from my phone, I saw that very few devices were connecting to the network. In some cases, this was a simple matter of power cycling the device. But when it came to my Amazon devices, echo dots (4 dots took over an hour), ring alarm, cameras, thermostats, MyQ garage door opener, they would NOT connect. I tried for several hours. I tried one thermostat 8 times before calling Amazon tech support (I like to figure these things out myself). Amazon support tried diligently to help, but could not. I called TP-Link and spoke to tech support. They told me to connect the missing devices to my guest network. Apparently TP-Link will only allow a certain number of devices to connect to the main network. It still took several hours for some devices to find the new network, main or guest. I finally stopped working on this around 10pm. I think everything is working, however I still haven’t checked all my plugs as they are used only during the holidays. My wireless speeds have increased drastically. Old system was producing around 90- 100mbps via Speedtest on my Galaxy 21, the new router is averaging 400+ mbps. If you get one of these, just plan on a full day of connecting previously used devices.

    Easy to use

    I have the T-Mobile 5G high-speed Internet modem connected to this system, with the main unit hardwired to the tMobile and four satellites to cover my house, and quite a bit of my yard. Setting it up was so easy, it took about five minutes, they all connected to each other with no problems, and once I figure it out to change my user username and password to my old orbi username and password, all of my smart devices connected with no problem.If you are having trouble with your connections, and smart devices dropping, unplug everything, shut it off, plug it back in and once it has gone through its process and is back online, plug the system back in and let it reboot. I did that after about two days and haven’t had any problems since.

    Easy setup with app

    As a 70+ senior with a very limited network background, I was leery about messing with our wi-fi. But with the recent additions of various “smart” plugs and outlets, the wi-fi signal was becoming weaker and we were having trouble with devices staying connected. After a surprisingly simple setup, in a few minutes we were up and running. The router and one of the units are located on the second floor and we added the second unit on the first floor at the other end of the house. I am happy to say we haven’t had any problems with dropped connections. Very pleased with this purchase.

    Use it with a wifi 6 capable device

    I set up 2 units to replace an older dual band WIFI router. Setup went relatively smoothly. You setup with a mobile app. While there is a web interface available you cannot only reboot the system and monitor connected devices.After I got the first device set up the upload/download speed to the internet was much worse from my main desktop machine using the dual band wifi interface built into the motherboard. Download speed was 40-60Mbps and upload speed was 150-200Mbps. This is with a 1Gbps symmetrical internet connection.I upgraded the desktop machine with a WIFI 6 capable network card and things changed drastically. Now I was seeing about 850Mbps download. Upload is still limited too around 200 Mbps. Not only that but download speed from my phone went up as well, as did the speeds tested through the Deco speed test functionality in the mobile app.This leads me to the conclusion that the desktop machine’s older 2Ghz/5Ghz network interface was interfering with the Deco’s ability to utilize the download capability available through my ISP.I got the Deco in the first place because I was only getting 200Mbps down and 200 Mbps up with the older WIFI router. This desktop machine is in the same room as the router, so it may have not been the router that was the problem, but the WIFI built into the desktop’s motherboard.If it was the old WIFI interface the Deco was performing worse than the older WIFI router. But now with a true WIFI 6 network card the Deco is living up to its potential.

    Easy to Install and Strong Performance

    This system was incredibly easy to install. I used the same network ID / password as my old WiFi router and I had every device in my house setup and running within 30 minutes. Other reviews were helpful in the setup. Ensure that you update the firmware after installing to ensure you have the latest version. Performance has been consistent and far better than my previous WiFI 5 router and the range with two pods covers our entire home (3400 sq ft) from the 2nd floor to the basement to the garage to the patio.As per other reviews, the configuration of the network is limited compared to my previous router, so if this is a requirement for your home network, make sure you know what you can/cannot do.

    Great mesh router

    Very easy to set up. Great app. And very good coverage around the house. I got the 2 unit system and I get great coverage all around our 4400+ sqft home. I even get superb coverage in my garage so the Tesla connects with out any issues.I have 500mps fios service and I easily get 200mps at the extremities of my home. That’s great coverage. At close range with LOS I get close to 500 mps.Highly recommend!!!!

    High Speed – Easy to set up

    This pair does a great job of covering my 2700 sqft 2 story home with Wifi on both levels.It’s relatively easy to set up. I’m using my in AP mode as my residential gateway is still acting as the DHCP server and so on.YMMV, but for my needs, the 2 pack was sufficient.My downstairs unit is using Ethernet for the backhaul and the upstairs unit uses the wireless backhaul.SpeedTest results are: 300-600mb/sec when paired with the wired backhaul device and about 50-100mb/sec paired to the wireless backhaul device. Contrast that with consistent over 900mb/sec with the wired connection over my fibre to the premises. Of course, YMMV depending on your home and wireless environment.

    Easiest WiFi setup I’ve ever done

    Very simple, easy to follow instructions. The mobile app worked very well, connected to the base/router extremely quick, setup was a breeze. Setup for the satellite unit could not be easier. Plug it in, walk away. 3 minutes later it was all set up automatically and working. The app can give you the network status at a glance, as well as give you notifications of new devices joining. Plenty of tools for monitoring and controlling usage on the network. Having only used Netgear and Linksys in the past, I am very happy with my first TP-Link product!

    Fast wifi

    Wow, just hooked up the routers today and very impressed. I’m on the spectrum 500mbps plan. I tested my speed on my old nest modems today prior to switching out routers. With nest routers (not their newest router) my download was 211.02 and ping 27. As picture shows I had more than double improvement. At first I was having issues with slow speed when setting up the routers then noticed there was a firmware update. Update instantly solved the issues. I watched several YouTube videos on latest router recommendations, and I’m glad I went with the wifi 6E.

    Outstanding coverage and speed

    I live in an old, large, one story house with thick plaster walls, a large brick chimney in the center of the house and large steel I-beams as the internal structure. Needless to say, these features limit the effectiveness of most wireless routers. This system replaced a five unit mesh-router system that struggled in many areas of my house. I have an ultra-high speed fiber internet provider but was only getting 30 to 50 mbps on a good day. I have around 20 devices connected to the network. The TP-Link system with three units is passing well over 500 mbps in all rooms in my house.

    Blown Away!!

    Wowwwww…. JUST. WOWWW!! Where has Mesh been my whole life. Ok, Maybe an exaggeration, but this system blows me away. Bought a traditional Router just before Covid which wasn’t cheap by any means. Yeahhhh, it had all the fancy dancy antenna’s protruding all over, looking like it was a beast. Fast forward to today, with having this guy (TP-Link Deco AXE5400 Tri-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System(Deco XE75) 2-Pack) running for 3 days now and I’m utterly start struck. I’ve gone from 200mbps to over 800. Coverage is great and not a lot to complain about. I have a 3 level home with an awkward “L” shape. I have the satellite unit wired and back hauled through the gig port vs over the air for max performance and it delivers. I am going to add one more satellite at the very end of the house just to add more signal as it does drop off a bit. However, after being skeptical for some time and reading reviews, I chose this bad boy. I use other TP-Link products through the house and I’d recommend this to anyone. Glad I pulled the trigger and finally getting this Router Mesh System.

    Fantastic coverage and speed.

    Other than the lack of control over functionality, it’s been great. I’m an IT professional so I like having it, but as long as they work it’s fine, and frankly, I get tired of working on things and I don’t always want to do that at home. I would request a web based portal with a lot more functionality in the future. As of now I’m not losing anything since I’m running in AP mode. Impressive speeds and coverage. I lose such a small amount of speed compared to a wired connection that I’ve put everything on wifi. Easy setup and solid performance. Tech support has not been necessary. I would highly recommend.

    If you are looking to upgrade from the M5

    I was having a few issues with my M5 deco not giving me the coverage I needed. I like the deco easy-to-use features, just need more coverage. So I added two of the new 6E. Let me tell you in the same space where I am sitting now, with the deco M5 I was getting about 75 download and 12 upload. Look at the picture and see what I am getting now. I am very happy now!

    Suits my needs but maybe not yours

    I replaced a WiFi 5 access point with this mainly because I had some dead spots in my home. This eliminated the dead spots and I am really happy with the performance. I thought I would have a problem with gaming lag but that turns out to not be an issue for me. It uses the 6 Ghz band to link the two devices together and that appears to work really well.If you only have basic internet needs give it a shot. I have a stand alone firewall, use this in access point mode, and it works great like that. If you are very technical and like to tweak stuff then find something else. This device is well suited for someone that just wants to get online and get on with life.I’d prefer if the device had usable web browser interface rather than requiring the use of a mobile device app and TPLink user account.

    Works so far as advertised

    Setup was easy and fast, get excellent signal everywhere in 2500 sq ft house with main unit in corner and satellite in the middle. I love having the hard line Ethernet coming out of the satellite to get the high bandwidth stuff off wifi so my TV stream doesn’t take up normal wifi bands. 6E band seems to work to offload the unit to unit traffic as advertised. Download Speed from satellite hard line almost matches straight Ethernet to my modem.Hate that it is stupid app setup only but at least their app isn’t total garbage like most. Only very basic settings are available which has pros and cons. They should support a browser based advanced setup as well and this would be a killer unit for more advanced uses and security.

    Works great

    I love that this system uses newer 6 GHz band for the backhaul channel. This system replaces a 2.4/5 GHz mesh system that had to use the crowded 5 GHz band for backhaul. Setup was easy. Most importantly, after several days of usage, no complaints from anyone in the household.I use the XE75 system as an access point instead of its default router mode. I also have ethernet clients plugged into the satellite access point. Everything working as expected.

  21. Andrew Holt

    Fantastic and easy!

    Very easy to set up and also easy to use. I have it attached to another wifi router and this one is still about 100 to 200 Mbps faster. So great!

  22. Ned

    Performs as advertised

    Instructions were clear and setup was very straightforward. Speeds measured at various locations both inside and outside my house reflect at least double, and sometimes triple, the speeds of my older system. My Xfinity plan is for 1G download. With this mesh system, and a new 1.5G cable modem, I’m consistently getting close to 600MB download speeds. Not sure why I’m not getting speeds closer to 1G, but I don’t believe it’s my equipment. I believe it’s more likely Xfinity has either restricted my data rate, or I was never getting the download rate I’ve been paying for. Very happy with this mesh system, though.

    Blazingly fast, easy setup, great range

    We have struggled for years with WiFi – we live in a 1928 high rise building with plaster over clay brick walls, so even getting WiFi to go from room to room has proven challenging. We started using Mesh routers as soon as they were available including prior generations of Deco. This new Deco line is a step change in range, speed, and performance. With only two units I can get full speed WiFi throughout our ~2,000 sq ft condo. Previously I needed one mesh unit in each room due to the construction, and I couldn’t sustain the same speeds as I got farther from the base unit. The new architecture of this generation is much better and we couldn’t be happier.

  24. Customer

    The system is good.

    I like the product 4 stars getting used vs new. The only problem I ordered new and got used. No plastic wrap on box with dust on top, wires unwrapped. I went ahead and hooked it up. Worked like a charm. I just don’t like getting duped on reselling returns by Amazon, lame.

  25. Chika Okoli


    I have 10 Ethernet ports Mikrotik router which routes my internet and LAN traffics. All I needed was a mesh router that will be set in bridge or access point mode and utilities the easy and fast roaming for my mobile connectivity. After setup, my network speed was slower that what it was with my previous mesh router. I was almost returning it before I decided to troubleshoot first. Eventually, I turned off beam forming and my network speak went from 0 to 100. Nice router.

    Great wifi coverage with just one.. the best Wi-Fi routers I’ve ever bought

    What a great Wi-Fi router mess. I bought the two pack for my house that struggled with Wi-Fi reception even with high-end gaming routers.I have a approximately 2600 ft² house if you include my finished basement. My previous router struggled to give Wi-Fi to certain areas of the house and my camera’s outside. With this Wi-Fi mesh system I really only needed one unit but installed one on each floor I get excellent reception even 20/30 ft away from my house. Wi-Fi 6 GHz has to be turned on but really don’t even need it. The 6 GHz signal is what is used to communicate to each unit but can also be turned on to be used with certain devices that are compatible. This message doesn’t excellent job with managing traffic I have about 45 devices hooked up and I have not experienced any speed issues. Would highly recommend

    Easy to set up and fast! If you have fast internet, pair it with a good router

    I’ve been looking to upgrade my network setup for awhile, and am happy with my choice with this router. I use the wired backhaul. This gives me fast ports in the major rooms of my house, along with always having a strong wifi signal in any room.My wifi speeds went from 160 mbps to 650 mbps – and that’s just wifi6. These routers supports 6e as well which should be even faster!

    Excellent Wi-Fi coverage

    I bought the AXE-5400 Triband system to create a mesh system in my home network to replace my old Wi-Fi-5 system (two Airport Extremes connected via Ethernet). We recently cut the cable cord and now have 5G home internet so this is probably overkill for the 300 to 400 MBPS I am getting, but wanted to future-proof even if there’s no 2.5 GBPS port. The Decos provide improved coverage for my home compared to the previous Wi-Fi system with sustained speeds and quality throughout our 2500 sq foot home (consistently 300-400 MbPs vs 200-300 with significant variability using the Airport Extremes). This is even more important now, having cut cable, since we stream ALL our video for a family of four. The trickiest room in the house is our sun room (exterior wall) where my former system would constantly have issues streaming live tv at the highest quality…HD picture would fluctuate in quality during live sporting events even with a wifi extender plugged in. We have not had this issue with the new Decos; they’ll even sustain 4K live streaming of sports, which is a huge improvement over my old cable package!I was able to set up via Ethernet backhaul (after connecting them wirelessly first during setup) so the two Decos are daisy-chained together from my 5G home router. This will allow for me to utilize the dedicated 6GHz channel at some point in the future.Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is because I had to reset everything ~1 week after having it set up and updated via the TPlink app. I hope this doesn’t happen frequently.In total fairness, TP-link has made the process of setting up via the app super easy. I even bought my retired parents a cheaper Tp-link AX3000 system for their house (also upgrading from Airport extremes). I wasn’t able to connect their Decos via Ethernet backhaul, due to location in their house. But they have sustained connectivity and excellent coverage throughout their 3500 sq ft house. My parents can both stream live tv at the same time with no lag or picture degradation. I noticed that even with their cable internet 600mbps package, the speed tests upstairs connecting to the second deco are consistently in the 300-400 Mbps range whereas downstairs they get 500-600. I can only assume that has to do with the way the decos are connected and some speed is lost without an Ethernet backhaul.

    Works flawlessly

    We were experiencing consistent wi-fi failures with our Spectrum router at our Church offices. Our Spectrum technician told us to get rid of our router and purchase a TP-Link Mesh system. After much research, he was proven correct. I ordered the AXE5400 system. Installation was simple. Before install, iPhone download speeds were 15 – 20 Mbps with the Spectrum router. New download speeds consistently 112 – 116 Mbps wireless to iPhones and MacBooks (we have a 100 Mbps subscription). This Mesh system operates flawlessly. Great investment.

  32. Barrington H.

    Works well

    The unit worked right out the box (my first and more expensive choice didn’t) and setup was easy. Over a week later it just runs and I’ve updated the firmware once with no issues. Would have bought the 3 unit set at Costco for a better price if I had known.

  33. Sarfraz

    Great! improvement over my older AC router

    The new Deco APP update now supports picking Radio frequency 2.4Ghz, 5 GHZ or both. This was recently added by TP link. This made it easy to only transmit AP in 5GHz mode so I could connect my Amazon Firestick to 5GHz then switch AP back into dual frequency mode. The speeds alone is a huge difference and mesh really works with WIFI 6 as a backhaul.

  34. George

    Fast, easy, stable

    I haven’t updated my home WiFi network for several years until one auto-updated software failed the mesh connection and the fancy UI didn’t even allow me to downgrade the firmware. After studying the recent WiFi mesh solutions, I noticed the triband one is really interested. Why? Because it is using the 6GHz band for the backhaul in between mesh router and nodes. 6GHz is a newly released unlicensed frequency band that is pretty empty to make the backhaul connection faster and more stable. I select the TP-Link solution among others because it has dedicated in this area for decades. I believe it has the most cost-effective/efficient products. Yes, I’m right. I set up the whole thing in like 15 minutes including updating firmware for both decos and they are working great. My amazon firetv recast is connected to the mesh node that is connecting to the mesh router wirelessly. I used to blame amazon when I watched TV with unsmoothed pictures. Now I know it was caused by the poor backhaul wireless connection that was on 5GHz band. I believe I can live with this product for several years. Highly recommend.

    Easy setup, but limited configuration

    My current setup:- House size is ~1700 sq/ft, with two floors, as well as a large backyard.- Running under AP mode, not modem/router mode.- Using guest network in addition to regular network.- WiFi 6 only as backhaul, since most of my devices don’t support 6e yet.- 35+ devices connected, mostly IoT devices (google home/mini, smart bulbs, speakers, smart plugs, etc), in addition to a few laptops, phones, and tablets.- All IoT devices are locked to the 2.5GHz guest network, which is currently setup to be restricted from the normal network.Pros:- Great coverage, even on the very far side of my backyard, I’m able to get 400mbit/s+ up/down from my phone.- Achieving advertised speeds, even with the chatter of many other networks around me, and all of the IoT devices.- Extremely easy setup.- App has some good options for toggling/locking devices to specific hubs.- Guest network support.Cons:- Very limited configuration. I’d really like to be able to configure a separate VLAN for each network (main and guest), and rather than enabling the “separate guest network from main network”, limiting via VLAN. The current approach for limiting my IoT devices with the guest network kinda sucks, because I have to put my phone on that network to be able to interact with most of those devices (like my Chromecasts). The VLAN approach means I can lock things down, while still allowing specific types of traffic. Alternatively, I could just put all IoT devices on the main network… but no.- Pairing of the 2nd hub was a little confusing. It took about 15 minutes after I powered the device on, before it was recognized by the other hub, despite them not being too crazy far apart, (and they apparently have great connection with eachother).- Accessing the hub info in the app is not the most intuitive. You have to click the logo, and there is no menu or obvious button to get into that view.- Price: I got these on sale, so the price became justifiable. However I’m not so sure at normal price.

    Easy to setup, but need patience and use reset button.

    Easy to setup once I realized I needed to push the reset button on the bottom of the router. Like the mobile app.

    I gave this a 5 – but it’s not perfect – still better than using 6 AC WiFi extenders

    My house is not 5500 square feet – and two of the routers are suppose to be adequate for a 5500 square foot house – that’s the only complaint I have regarding these 6E routers. I bought two packages of them from Amazon while they were on sale last week – and then wanted to buy another pack of two – but found that Amazon limited my purchase to only 4 routers. I did buy 2 more routers direct from TP-Link later – for 15% less than the MSRP of $299. Even at MSRP these in my opinion are a bargain.In my case 4 of these routers were adequate for a 4500 square foot house – once I had them set up and then spread the three satellites to the far corners of the house. However, I have two older computers that would not connect to these routers via WiFi and two different VOIP telephone systems. So I use routers 5 and 6 as floaters to connect to those computers when I need them and the extra VOIP system through the ethernet ports. There are three ethernet ports that are available on each satellite router – and since the first one (non-satellite router) has to be connected by ethernet to the modem that leaves two available ethernet ports on it.One thing I didn’t want to have to do was to contact my ISP to replace my modem or bridge it. And I didn’t although – that may be an option if you can’t bridge your modem yourself. I’m using an Arris DOCSIS 3.1 modem-router and I read that I needed to bridge it – otherwise the router on it would probably interfere with these mesh routers. I had some trepidation – but bridging the modem turned out to be easy to do. After downloading the app from TP-link for these routers on my phone. I just had to bring up the Arris Modem software on my computer, login, and click on bridge router. Then I immediately lost the Internet connection on the computer – but was able to install the Mesh router using the TP-Link app on my phone.Overall, I rate this as 4.85 stars – just because the coverage doesn’t meet the 5500 square feet threshold with only two routers. Having bought 6 – I must like ’em.

    Fast and easy to set up

    Used to replace a Plume mesh set up that was provided by my ISP. I feel like I am actually taking advantage of my gig speed connection with the Deco XE75. My wireless speeds are consistently 375Mbps+ and my wired speeds are consistently 900Mbps+ compared to my Plume set up where my wired connections were lucky to be getting 400Mbps.Set up was incredibly simple and the Deco app is great, easy to use and has a lot of fun tools.

    Good mesh that outperforms old Google WiFi Mesh.

    Works well and replaced three Google WiFi pucks to provide coverage porch to detached garage in a 1600 sq house. Was having speed and some weird connection issues, but this cleared them up. The app is…not great as far as customization. One thing to consider is that if you run the other AP wirelessly, it uses the 6ghz band for the backhaul. You’ll want to run ethernet if you want a 6e signal in the house.

    Best WIFI system out there

    Great whole house signal, no issues moving around the house. No dropped signal like Netgear Orbi. I have 48 devices connected to it and still get 954 upload and 982 download speeds. Love it!

  41. Lorie S.

    Easiest set up yet!

    99.9% of this system is awesome! It has 2.4 and 5GHz and uses the 6GHz for back end support (makes the other two faster). You can also enable the 6GHz as a wifi network if you want. It easily covers my .5 acre property with ease. I am getting really good, consistent speeds and haven’t had an issue yet. My Fire Sticks are like lightning now. The ONLY issue I have is that the App is required for management. There is virtually nothing you can do from a desktop. That and advanced configuration options are few, it manages most automatically. You can do port forwarding and QoS, tasks, Parental Controls, but as a former Network Pro, I like to get into the guts of things. To the average user this will not be an issue. There are of course subscription based security features you can buy in the app (go figure) but as long as you are running a good Virus Program such as Symantec or McAfee you are good. If you buy this you won’t be disappointed!

    Amazing Router

    I have updated my system from a nighthawk to the AXE5400. I absolutely love how easy it was to set up. Everything worked right off the bat as expected.As a software engineer, I was disappointed in the TP Link app. It is very limited in what it’s capable of doing, and really degrades the quality of the product. For example, I need to be able to change the IP address so that I’m able to use the company VPN. I was unable to set the IP address to the range I needed. They kept telling me the IP range was invalid. I’m having to do a workaround to make the system work properly. If they would update the software on app, I would say this is a five-star unit and worth twice the amount of money I paid for it.

    Easy to install, high speeds, and good app

    Bought these to cover my wife’s office in the detached garage. One setup hard wired to the modem and the second setup 100 feet away on second floor and so far has worked well.Pros:-straight forward installation-high speeds (up & down)-easy to use appCons-kinda bulky but at least a decent looking device

  44. Confounded Consumer

    Speed, coverage and adding devices all excellent.

    Setup was a piece of cake. All went exactly as described – basically plug and play. Speed and coverage are 1st rate. The Deco mesh almost doubled the access speed over my previous router (which is a high-end Netgear non-mesh). And, the coverage of the Deco is exponentially better. (Even with the extenders I used with my previous setup).I only use the 6GHz as a dedicated backhaul between the two mesh nodes. I may try using it w/ 6Hz capable devices down the road, but right now enjoying the increase in speed without the need to do that yet.The mobile app is very good. My only negative takeaway is the lack of interactive access on the PC-based website for node management. Otherwise everything is upside.Would definitely recommend, without hesitation.

  45. Bergie008

    Affordable 6E that works

    It’s worth noting that when dealing with wireless products, your mileage may vary.TL;DR – Sleek, effective, simple, affordable. Can’t recommend highly enough.For me, I live in an area that had enough 5Ghz interference that it was basically unusable (3Mbps / .700kbps with 300ms jitter, high latency, etc). After installing the TP-Link Deco system behind my router in AP mode, walking through the Deco app was quick and a breeze and within >10min I was up and running on WiFi 6E*, pulling 100Mbps/30Mbps with 3ms jitter and very low latency. Furthermore, as there are many devices that do not support 6E currently (such as my PS5) if they have an ethernet connection, it’s a simple matter to install a node nearby and plugin ethernet to achieve near wire speeds and take full advantage of what 6E has to offer.I’ve always liked TP-Link, they offer solid products at disruptive price points, but I think they’ve outdone themselves with this product in this market.If you are looking to get ‘full advertised speeds’ I can’t really speak to that with this product, I suspect it works fast and well depending on your environment but other offerings may be able to beat it, just know that you will typically spend 3x’s the cost of the Deco’s!*By default the Deco’s have to be configured to allow 6E connections, otherwise they use this as a dedicated backhaul between nodes

    Returns Nest Wifi Pro for this and glad I did

    I was having speed and connection problems with the Nest Wifi Pro and bought this to replace that and I am glad I did. The speed and device connectivity on the Deco is top notch. Having 6ghz on my phone is amazing.I have a 3 Floor-1400 sq ft house and a 2 pack is way more than I need. I have a strong signal everywhere in my house and speeds are always great.The app just updated to 3.0 and it is so much better than previous versions. The UI is better and it gives you much more information and things to do with your routers.Minor pet peeve but I wish it used instead of Would have made transferring my network over from nest easier.

    Awesome wireless router

    Horrible product

    This mesh is horrible. I’ve installed a Google Mesh and this one. I’d say this one should be laid to rest, but after 3 months of use and complaints from family members, I looked at what is going on.I have one of the two connected directly to the router. The second one is upstairs, connected to the first. I’m only getting a 2.4 GHz connection, despite both the 2.4 and 5 GHz enabled. If I shut off the 2.4, I get no bandwidth.Running speed tests, I get 60Mbps throughput directly to my router, bypassing/not connecting to Deco. If I connect to Deco, I get 28Mbps. THE WHOLE REASON FOR BUYING A MESH IS TO INCREASE YOUR SPEED, NOT DECREASE IT!I updated the firmware on both units, restarted both units, and the result is this review, warning others to steer clear.Now about the app that is used to administer the Deco. I am a software developer for over half my life. I know little about developing mobile apps, but I know that this is not what I would ever release to the public. I grade this app an F. Things that expand should have a twist – they do not. The app looks like it’s designed with multiple mesh networks – realistically there’s only one mesh network that 99.9% of users are going to install.First screen is an overview. Clients and Location tabs. Clients I understand – those are the clients that are connected. That would not have been my first choice for the home screen. I would have rather see a status reading of the connectivity of the mesh, alerting any problems and suggested fixes. Location tab – lists the network along with a settings gear that takes me nowhere. no settings. what the heck???Getting to the status of devices is through the image at the top, but you wouldn’t know that because there’s no indicator that it would take you anywhere. An arrow indicating there’s something there would have been helpful. There are icons at the bottom of the start screen that lead the users into a whole other set of confusing paths. The Status of the devices is where I would have expected to have the start screen take me, but enhanced with better status indicators. Again, realistically, a consumer is only going to have 3 or less devices, so one could fit more information at a glance, but apparently Deco app developer doesn’t feel the same way. To see information about each device, you have to click into them. That also tells you what computers are connected to individual decos which initially appears to allow you to force individual clients off the mesh, which is what it SHOULD do. Instead, it is a selection to enable (by default) seamless switching between mesh devices, which really shouldn’t be an option to the user at all – i mean that’s the whole point of getting the mesh! But you really don’t know that that’s what the selection is for unless you click on the almost-hidden question mark. This screen also tells you the firmware version that the device is on, but lacks the date of the version was updated. To have a set of devices on different firmware is odd to me, and should be self-healing. If one device was offline while the first got the firmware, I would expect them to communicate and update the other when it did come back online.The navigation icons at the bottom are missing on the screen, so I struggle to find my way back to the main screen. I found two arrows at the top, one that looks like a regular back arrow, one that looks like a go-forward arrow (which takes me to rename the location of the device), and three dots which give me an option of removing, rebooting, and support FAQ. I would expect FAQ and support to be on the main/home screen as it’s a central function.Starting again at the home screen, at the bottom, I click on Smart Actions. This is a dead button for me, as I would never control my smart devices like lights through this app. I would control my smart devices through a smart home device. This app is for the mesh, not smart devices.Homeshield is another dead button at the bottom, where you can buy their monthly or yearly subscription to protect devices. Again, this app is for the mesh, not anti-virus software. Let’s try to stay focused on that.The last button on the bottom just says “more”. THIS IS WHERE THE IMPORTANT SETTINGS ARE! Why do they hide them under the blanket category “more”? In order of importance, the buttons along the bottom should be Home or Overview, WiFi Settings, Deco Settings, and Visitor Settings. Drop smart actions and homeshield as they don’t belong.It would be nice to be alerted when a user is trying to join the network so I can allow them to join, like Google Mesh does. I get no alerts from this system.Google Mesh was far simpler to install, use, and administer. That’s what I’m heading back towards. Even if I’m able to resolve the decrease in speed when attaching to Deco, it still leaves a lot of room for improvement.

    It actually works. It’s actually reliable.

    This router exceeded my expectations by far. I had tried a competing mesh router from Netgear and it suffered from all the usual router shenanigans; disconnects were common and resets were frequent. But this Deco is just fantastic. I haven’t had to reset it even once. Devices switch between mesh nodes as they ought to. The speed is fantastic and consistent. The app was great before, and now they’ve given it a complete overhaul and it’s even better. I highly recommend this router based on my experience. Customer support is also great, I’ve contacted them twice and both times they went above and beyond to help me out. I’m a new, happy TP-Link customer. The TP-Link smart switches and smart outlets work great with the router + app too, for what it’s worth.

    Works but not a lot of features

    This mesh router works well for someone who wants to plug it in and never mess with it again. The app is very basic. There is not really any settings or customizations you can do other then changing the SSID / password.

    Not working out for me at the moment! XE75 2 Pair *Updated*

    So far not so good.A quick background for me. I worked previously as a Network Engineer for over 10 years, with multiple degrees and certifications in the field. 4 years ago I left networking behind and moved into a different field. So I’m not new to this stuff at all.I purchased the XE75 (AXE5400) about a week ago. Setup was quick and easy. I initially set it up using the 6GHz backhaul, in AP mode. (I have a firewall upstream managing all the routing, DHCP, etc.) It worked for about 48 hours then everything went sideways. I couldn’t get the “satellite” unit to connect to the “main” unit. I tried rebooting, moving the units closer together, checked the firmware, etc. and nothing worked, so I connected them both via Ethernet. I bought this particular model so I can use the 6 GHz band for the dedicated backhaul. At any rate, the Ethernet backhaul worked, and seems to be working well still. That being said, the 6 Ghz backhaul SHOULD work and it doesn’t. That’s very disappointing.With a work around for the backhaul problem in place…a couple days later I started just randomly losing my connection to the network. The SSID would disappear on my phone (and other devices) and it would automatically switch over to my LTE connection. I thought perhaps it had to do with a roaming issue so I checked that fast roaming was enabled, and it was not, so I enabled it but the problem persisted. I disabled fast roaming then I disabled beamforming, and the problem persisted. I prefer to mess with a single variable at a time so I know what fixes the problem. Neither of these settings solved my problem.I reached out to support about this, and they suggested the above steps, as well as disabling the security on my Guest Wireless network. I’m testing that as I write this. I will report back on my findings with that.When it works, which is intermittent at this point, it’s been great. I’ve seen some pretty good reviews from some people that seem to be pretty qualified on the topic and have had a great experience so far. All I can say about that is I believe them, so there must be a production quality issue here and possibly some faulty hardware. Support is supposed to be calling me soon to talk to me. We’ll see if that actually happens, and like I said previously, I will try to report back on that conversation. As of this moment, if that call doesn’t put me on a solid path to resolution I will likely be returning these.P.S. – Something I observed, in AP mode you loose a lot of the security features outlined in the product description. That makes sense to me since they are routing functions, but keep that in mind. I use a Firewalla Purple upstream for all my routing, and content filtering needs. No monthly subscription! It’s affordable, and works very very well. So all those extra features provided by TP-Link I don’t need, and never intended to use. I literally just need my wireless devices to connect to the network, and it doesn’t seem to be handling that well at the moment.*Update*So support did call me and they remotely connected to my Deco units. We did some troubleshooting for about 2 hours. We tested various things and they collected logs and other info to analyze further. After a few more emails back and forth afterwards we came to the conclusion that the 160Mhz band was causing problems. A setting I overlooked during my own troubleshooting, but when you click on your SSID password it brings up a few more options and at the bottom of the page you can select 160 or 80. After setting it to 80 things stabilized, in fact I don’t have any problems at all except on the outside edges of my home and in my garage (my home is about 5,000 sq. ft. not counting the garage) I might just need another deco as I’m likely experiencing signal strength issues in those places. I did not realize my 2 year old iPhone doesn’t play well with the 160Mhz band, and a lot of other devices for that matter. Even though the 160Mhz option is marked as recommended I wouldn’t use it unless you know your devices support it.At any rate the problem seems to be resolved and support was very persistent. I actually got to the point where I was tired of troubleshooting it and told them so and wanted to just return these units but they really wanted to figure the problem out, and I think they did. So because of both of these reasons I increased my rating to 4 stars.One more thing, during our troubleshooting I noticed new firmware was released. The release notes mentioned wireless backhaul stability and general wireless stability improvements. I did NOT update during troubleshooting (again because I didn’t want too many variables in play here). Once things were stable for a few days I did roll the update. It’s been 24 hours and I have not noticed any problems. I want to disconnect my wired backhaul and see if that problem is now resolved with the update. I’ll report back when I have a chance to test. If it does work that will be huge!I’m hoping this review helps others avoid some time troubleshooting. At this point I’d say my opinion of these has changed and I would now recommend them. Even though I can’t take advantage of some of the features yet (i.e. Wifi 6e, 160 Mhz band) I got this unit to future proof my home network and because for the price and feature ratio you can’t beat it with the other brands. Based on my experience with support they’re determined to make sure they work.Another Update: I’ve been running the primary unit connected via Ethernet, and the the satellite unit is backhauled via the 6Ghz band to the primary unit for about 2 weeks now and it’s working flawlessly. I suspect the firmware update fixed my stability issues. I’m going to leave my review at 4 stars because of the initial issues I had, but I’d definitely recommend these.Also, I never updated on disabling security on Guest Wifi during initial troubleshooting. It didn’t work, as expected, but wanted to make sure others know incase they run into similar issues. Just make sure your firmware is up to date and disable the 160Mhz (use 80 instead) unless you absolutely know for sure your devices utilize 160. Those that don’t use 160 will likely run into problems though. Test it yourself and see which works best for your devices and home. Good luck!!

    Absolutely the best WiFi equipment I’ve ever bought!!

    This is by far THE BEST PIECE OF EQUIPMENTS I’VE PURCHASED FOR WI-FI!!- If you want better connectivity, you can by an additional pack and connect them to your existing network of Decos.- It’s Tri-Band with 2.4 ghz, 5ghz, and 6ghz. At the time of this post, majority of users don’t have 6ghz devices. This is great because your decos need to communicate with each other. So you can use the 6ghz channel for them to communicate with each other while freeing up your 2.4ghz and 5 ghz signals. Think of it as being less congested.- You can give names to the devices and monitor who you want on and off the networks.- The “Deco” app is amazing and easy to understand.- You can create one WiFi signal and the Deco’s will automatically assign your devices to the 2.4ghz or 5ghz channel based on what will give you the best WiFi performance. 6ghz channel is optional as well if your devices support it and you can change it from a “dedicated backhaul” to a “backhaul and WiFi”. But I don’t suggest this. I recommend keeping it as a backhaul only unless you know what you’re doing.- You can create a guest network for your guest. And you can determine if you want to only offer them the 2.4ghz, 5ghz, or both.Tips:- Plus your first Deco into the fastest port on your internet modem. It should be labeled.- *Advanced technique but highly efficient.*Once you have all your Deco’s properly connected, go into your service providers backend, the IP Address typed in on your actual modem, and turn off your 2.4 ghz channel and your 5ghz WiFi signals. This will force all your devices to be synced up with the Deco and it’ll free all your internet speed because nothing is connected to the modem itself but the Deco’s. Think of it as an outdoor water connection with 3 hose. If all 3 are open, you’re diving the water evenly. If you close two of them and leave the third open, it’ll have the best pressure. That’s what you want in this case but with the Wi-Fi.This was done on a 5800 sq ft 3 level home. On my farthest end of the house away from the modem, I went from pulling 64mbps download to 309mbps. And from 17mbps upload to 173mbps upload. I’m running fiber at 1gbps upload and download. So these speeds are good enough for everyone in the house with all the devices connected. Oh! And one last thing, you can view REAL-TIME the various speeds different devices are pulling. If you’re considering this device, go ahead and get it.Coming from a gamer and video streamer/uploading, this is hands down the best Wi-Fi purchase I’ve ever made.

    Great Mesh WiFi System for the Non Technical

    This is a great Mesh WiFi system for the Non Technical person who wants a WiFi 6e system with great features at an affordable price. In the box you get 2 identical routers, 2 power supplies, and an ethernet cable. Setup is pretty straight forward. You must download the DECO app in order to setup the system. All control and configuration is done via the DECO app.Whichever one you connect to your current router for initial setup will be the “Main” unit. The app guides your through the setup process (much of it is automated so you really don’t have to do much) and you set your network name and password. Once the “Main” unit is configured, all you have to do to configure the 2nd unit is have it close to the “Main” unit and plug it into power. It will take a few minutes to boot up, and sync up with the main unit and the next thing you know you are up and running!By default, it will use the 6ghz channel as the wireless backhaul. Since it’s 6ghz, signal distance is less so make sure the 2nd unit is less than 50 feet away and both units are mounted up and not sitting on a desk for optimum range. The more walls or obstacles between the devices, the closer they need to be.The system is automatically setup as “router mode” which means it performs all the functions of your primary router so that is no longer needed. Personally, due to the lack of control, i set it to AP mode (access point) and run a ethernet backhaul to a switch to my router. This setup works best for me.I was so pleased with the way the 2 devices performed as Access Points that I purchased another set of 2 so I have 4 access points all running via a wired connection back to a switch off my main router with Fast Roaming and beam forming enabled. I get consistent speeds wherever i walk to in the house and even out into the backyard or front. The pass off from one AP to the next is seamless.If you’re looking for a quick simple, hassle free setup, then i’d definitely recommend this. If you’re more technical and want to be able to assign a specific channel to the APs, this is not for you because you can not control any of that. For the typical user, definitely a great system. For the techie, suggest you consider another system. It’s working great so far for me which is why i didn’t return anything. If you found this review helpful, please let me know.

    Exceeded my expectations.

    I was using a Netgear router that is about 5 years old. All of the firmware was up to date and I was getting about 80 Mbps wired and between 5 and 15 Mbps wifi in my 1800 square foot two story house.After adding this router, I now routinely get over 300 Mbps (sometimes up to 700) wired, and have wifi coverage all over the house and back yard at between 75 and 200 Mbps. I did not expect that my old wifi router would be the choke point for my cable internet service (I assumed it would be the modem). I was only looking for improved wifi coverage and was very pleasantly surprised with my overall speed increases.I didn’t think I would like the ap that controls the routers (I was used to logging into my router from my computer), but the ap is actually much better and gives me the ability to instantly see the status of the network and what devices are connected.I really like this router and wish I would have known that my old router was slowing my old network. I had just assumed that 100 Mbps was the limit of my Xfinity cable subscription.I can’t add any negative feedback about this product. It literally only took 15 minutes to set up both devices and it has functioned perfectly since I installed it.

    TP-Link Deco AXE5400 Tri-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System(Deco XE75)

    Pros: It does exactly what it says it will do in the advertisement. Home coverage (3,000 sq ft) is excellent with a less than optimum positioning of Deco units.Cons: It requires an Ethernet connection to the Internet. In my configuration, I do not have Ethernet in my house, so I had to hardwire the “master” to my Xfinity gateway which is 3 feet away from the master. This configuration gave me a choice of turning off the wifi within the gateway, or establishing a second wifi network. Since my gateway has wifi-AX, I chose to establish a second network. My computer has its Ethernet port connected to a “slave” Ethernet port, and my computer reports 1000 Mbps down and 1000Mbps up. I have not way of knowing the wifi speed the slave is actually using. The Deco mesh is dedicated to my computer, one 4K TV, and one cellphone. The network is set to prioritize my computer throughput.

    Amazing Range. Amazingly Easy to Setup. User Friendly Controls…with a catch

    What I like:- Wifi 6e! This puts you on the latest and greatest version of Wifi with a fairly cheap cost to its competitors.- Super simple to setup. I was able to complete setting this up within 30 minutes using the phone app, and at no point did I feel it was too challenging. You are easily guided at every step and there were no weird gotchas that I experienced during setup.- The RANGE! Wow. I am thoroughly impressed with the distance this covers. it says it covers up to 7200sqft and I can confirm that I get strong signal throughout my house (it is not 7200sqft, but I am able to get Wifi at equivalent range outside….awesome!) I will say as a side note, make sure to use the built in placement tool inside the app to make sure you put these in optimal areas to really maximize your range.- Super simple to use app. It is extremely easy to configure your network, and monitoring is a breeze. HOWEVER there is one important gotcha here that I will talk about in what I don’t like.What I don’t like:- PC/Web configuration experience is lacking… This message is for TP-Link directly… COME ON GUYS! How on earth do you make a great product like this, with an amazing app that does so much…..but the computer configuration experience is WORSE than the app? Just so everyone knows, the App has more control over setting things up than you can do on the PC. You aren’t losing a star in my review because the pros of this product far far outweigh the cons, but any type of network savvy individual is going to want to do things from their computer….not their phone. Security risks aside it is generally good for power users to be able to have all the controls from their computer.Overall: Besides the gotcha… This system punches well above it’s weight class. I can easily recommend it to anyone who may not be tech savvy, or is tech savvy and just doesn’t care about configuring everything down to the minute details. But if you are tech savvy…. know that you will be using your smart phone for most of the setup….and the configurations you can do are a bit lacking….cc

    A great upgrade for your Wi-Fi network!

    I wanted to upgrade from my Deco X20 to a newer system with Wi-Fi 6E as I finally have a decent amount of devices that can take advantage of the 6GHz channel. I get full speeds from my Xfinity 800mbps plan. I always like using TP-LINK products especially the Deco series as the Deco app is very easy to use and to set it up. I get consistently 800mbps throughout my entire house thanks to the Ethernet Backhaul feature. I also did try out the 6GHz backhaul feature as well and it works pretty good as well as since there isn’t any congestion on the 6GHz channel, I was able to get 500mbps over wireless instead of 200mbps on my old Deco x20 without Ethernet. I highly recommend getting this Deco setup especially if you can get a good deal on it.

    Incredible Range and Speed!

    This is the first time I’ve bought a Mesh WiFi system and these are hands down the best WiFi Mesh Routers I’ve ever owned. The range is just superb! For reference we live in a small to mid-size house with another house behind us that my brother lives in and we have a Fiber Gigabit connection. We placed the main Deco in the living room and the second one in my Bedroom which is closest to their house and it manages to reach all the way through their house into the garages at the far back at 200mbps download and uploadwith no deadzones which is just unheard of at that range! Our previous router was a problematic Netgear Nighthawk which could barely reach the backhouse let alone the garage. I’m so glad I was able to get a refund on that turd and get this Deco system instead. Oh and yeah the installation was a breeze, super simple and easy to setup and the entire system was up and running in less than 5 minutes. Most of the configuration is done in-app and is really REALLY easy to understand and configure. Not to mention the 6Ghz band which is just insanely fast when tested on my Redmagic. (Although only the latest devices support this feature).All in all, I’m very satisfied with our Deco system, Well done, TP-Link! Highly recommend these to anyone especially if you have a big house or a duplex like ours.

    Much more stable than Google/Nest WiFi with AT&T Fiber

    I bought this due to my Google/Nest WiFi (Gen 2) units not working well with AT&T Fiber 1G. I narrowed the issue down to the mesh units and not AT&T so I decided to replace them. For reference the Google/Nest units would just hit stretches of crazy high latency (>500ms) and just tank until I rebooted them, I never had to reboot the Fiber modem. I went with this unit based off reviews and sale price.WiFi signal is great throughout the house, no dead spots. Most importantly I have had ZERO issue with my AT&T Fiber 1G connection. Highly recommended.For reference:1G AT&T FiberHouse is around 3000 sq ftUsing only wireless backhaul for connectivity between unitsUsually have about 30 devices on network at any time

    Works well

    Only negative is you have to download an app and create an account to use the product – very tired of needing to sign up for things to use a product I’ve already purchased.Had Google WiFi before this and it was causing issues for my 7.1 wifi sound system (nakamichi) such that whenever I was using the sound system, the WiFi signal tanked in the entire house. I don’t have that issue with this mesh system and the signal strength is better and much faster.This was one of the few things that didn’t have Alexa built into it (not sure why that’s so hard to find).
