This mesh router has poor WiFi performance, with only the 5GHz being even OK. While it gives good fibre speeds, the slow wireless and very noticeable interference from obstructions (5GHz) will leave you annoyed.

Simple, reliable, great whole of house wifi. Works far better than many previous Wifi Routers and access points. Easy updates.
I don't understand the test results, based on my experience it's far better than some of the other routers that have poor wifi and don't last.
Family, parental controls could be better.
Yes, I recommend this product.
