Consider adding more Mesh routers

In larger homes, a single ONT and router pair can struggle to ensure seamless coverage in every room. Fortunately, this can be solved by setting up additional Mesh routers. Not sure how many you’ll need? Check out the guideline below.*


*: Mesh units from other brands will not be compatible with the TP-Link EB810v router. We strongly recommend using another EB810v for the best performance.
