Had 3 floors in my home to have internet coverage. Didn't want to have mesh system from my internet provider as it is pricey and bound to the IP.
Since my house has data line installed in all floors, I decided to get couple of WAX610 Cloud managed wireless access points and GS205 5 port Gigabit switch (should have more info on website what is in the box) to create multiple access points network like in a business/office.
Set them up using Netgear Insight App which was very easy and then physically installed them myself on the ceilings of my home.
My family and myself are very happy with the coverage and speed of internet on all 3 floors.
Also received prompt, useful and friendly advice from a support staff (Alvin) via email and phone call to discuss about network setup options and what hardware to purchase. Thank you.
