It is certainly going to appeal to the home market for people who cannot, for many perfectly legitimate reasons, install a "proper" cabled backhaul for a cellular Wi-Fi infrastructure.Mesh WiFi seems to be the way forward.
Short answer: Buy something else. Anything else. Netgear constantly pushes unstable and untested firmware updates that you have no way of disabling the installation of, which disrupt your system in new ways with every release. Check out this topic about the most recent version: Announcing availability of OrbiOS 2.1 - NETGEAR CommunitiesHi folks,
Ive just started doing a bit of research into this system as im curious to improve my current set up (the usual story, thick stone walls, long house with loads of black spots etc)
The first and most important question for me is does it require a wired connection to the internet source/router?
The reason I ask is that we are too rural for regular broadband so have to use mobile wifi devices, and im not sure if this system can work with a mobile wifi box?
Secondly, does this system still use the electrical wiring the way home plugs did? Again its no good for me if so as we have 2 separate electrical circuits at either end of the house.
