What is a mesh WiFi system?
WiFi mesh will deliver reliable WiFi throughout your entire home, eliminating dead spots and allowing for speed on multiple devices without slowing your gaming system. It works using a main router and satellite nodes which are placed strategically around your living space to reduce spotty service.
BEST FOR FEATURES
This may be a bit expensive for the normal internet user, but for a home that relies heavily on connection, it’s faster and more reliable than others.
BEST FOR LATENCY
Latency won’t be something you’ll worry about with this router.
BEST FOR STYLE
The Razer Sila works for the gamer as well as for the whole household.
BEST FOR DESIGN
Ubiquiti AmpliFi Gamer’s Edition
This isn’t the fastest or most reliable gaming mesh router on the market, but it is cool looking, and its low-latency mode helps with gaming.
BEST FOR EXPANDING
ASUS RT-AX92U AX6100
This will do a mediocre job — many users say it works better as a standalone router than as a mesh system — but it’s still worth a look.
BEST FOR PARENTAL CONTROLS
Amped Wireless ALLY Plus
This is a reliable (and cheap) home system with great parental controls, but may not be fast enough for serious gamers.
