Deco Mesh WiFi System: Average routers are designed to send WiFi in
all directions, but don't always reach every room; while range extenders improve
coverage, but create multiple networks for you to navigate. TP-Links Deco system

One Deco mesh WiFi router
works independently to cover up to 1500 sq/ft, while this
3-pack Deco mesh WiFi router kit (sold separately) works together to deliver
up to 4,500 sq/ft. For even more coverage, you can use up to 10 Deco units (624DM51PK, sold
separately) on a single WiFi network.
