Does this work from home situation sound familiar to you? More devices are now connected to that old router you have – so that means slower internet for everybody. To fix this, everyone huddles near where the connection is the strongest; and with all that racket, it creates an environment that’s less than ideal for productivity. 

If this perfectly described your WFH experience, then I’m glad to report that there’s a catch-all solution to your dilemma – the TP-Link Deco X90 is a mesh Wi-Fi system that not only covers every corner of your house with stable internet, but delivers higher bandwidth to everybody at home as well.

The router supports Wi-Fi 6 and Tri-Band connectivity meaning compatible devices will be able to make use of all that sweet internet speed (up to 6,600Mbps), anywhere in the house – you get two 5GHz bands (4,804Mb/s and 1,201 Mb/s) for high-speed internet, and one 2.4GHz band (574Mb/s) for long range connections.  

To eliminate dead zones, all you need is to place one of the two nodes wherever you think has the weakest signal. it covers a wide area of up to 6,000sqft, or a four to 6-bedroom house – providing you steady internet in places like on the second floor of your two-story house, the kitchen that’s separated by a thick wall, or the bathroom – for whatever reasons you need a connection there for.
