Hi,

 

I have 3 Deco M5 mesh nodes but want to get better coverage in my house. Would it be better to use 6pcs Deco M5 or upgrade to 3pcs M9 Plus?

My house is a 2 floor 224sqm and my yard is 800sqm.

Having used both, to be perfectly honest the M9 isn't that much better range vs the M5, maybe 10% at most

 

If you are asking my opinion if you want better coverage go for the 6x M5s and just blanket the place in WiFi.

Another benefit of having all and exclusively M5s is firmware 1.6 that will let you configure which Deco connects to which other Deco.  With 3 or more Deco units you may find that very handy.

 

This firmware is available for M5 only, as of now.
