You will also have access to tools such as scheduling, auto password change, and MAC address filtering to prevent unauthorized access. Yes, if you switch to Synology mesh, your performance will probably be the same considering your current situation, Wichai. You can use two RT-2600ac (or even three) with identical settings, but they will create separate networks, especially considering they will use two different Intenet sources.

Considering I am looking to get a separate synology NAS anyways, the NAS capability of the router itself seems redundant or less attractive since there is no link aggregation, or is this consideration more NAS dependant? Although the RT2600ac is more powerful, having no extra 5GHz makes me think that it will impact the mesh’s overall performance (I cannot wire them together). What's most important, in either case, everyone sure will benefit from the router's built-in security and other valuable features. I do have 3 rooms in the house with ethernet ports going to ther garage where my fiber connection and main router will go, and the satellite will be plugged via ethernet in one of the other rooms. After that, you can add more hardware units, wirelessly or via network cables, to extend the home network.In a mesh system, only traditional Tri-band hardware — those with an additional 5GHz band — can have a dedicated backhaul band without ostracizing clients of the same band. You can either connect to the default MR2200ac wireless network via your phone’s wireless network settings or scan the QR code at the back of the MR2200ac using the DS Router app.

Below I have detailed several pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages and hopefully, they will help you decide whether the Synology router range still deserves your money.

Auto-update: You can set the system to auto-update to the latest firmware, which will take care of both the main router and satellite (Wi-Fi points). I am planning to implement the Synology mesh but is debating between getting a RT2600ac / MR2200ac combo or two MR2200ac. And that's likely because Synology has designed the MR2200ac to also work as a satellite mesh point, allowing you to link two or more units into a Wi-Fi system. Actually, ST, they release firmware updates quite regularly, even for the old Wi-Fi 5 models, which will also get SRM 1.

Virtually all existing Synology routers — except for its first, the RT1900ac — support this mesh feature, and it's safe to say future ones will, too. While this would not solve the resetting issues with the Nighthawk router and Canon printer, it should solve the buffering issues with the TV. Both apps are well-designed and self-explanatory and, in most cases, are all you need to customize your network. A few days ago I had the honor and pleasure of adding 3 Synology MR2200ac Mesh routers to my home network. I am not interested in WiFi 6, corporate watching, and I want a some configurability, so I am currently torn between the ASUS CT8 and the Synology setup that you reviewed here.Safe Access is a preinstalled package that integrates advanced parental control and security functions.

That means that you have to place your node at the same place that you are going to have your wired backhaul. I’d still recommend running cable — you need just one so that you can place the router in the middle or add one more broadcaster. In step 1 of how to build a Synology Mesh, you say to update the firmware on both devices and then do a factory reset.ft 2nd floor), two satellites were overkill and that one satellite was “interfering” with the other. Generally, though, in a wireless setup, you want to use the star topology (meaning the satellite units are placed around the main router unit). I did look into Linksys Velop, Google Wifi, Netgear Mesh, Asus Lyro, Samsung Mesh, Eero and few other systems. With the latest SRM updates from Synology on our RT2600ac, which opened up a whole new world of Wi-Fi connection power that can expand small network coverage, to large areas be it homes or workplaces.
