UniFi APís by any chance?
As it happens yes,

Did I do a bad thing?

TP link deco P9 come with the in-built Ethernet poweline which eliminates issues with distances between APs, I've got it in the house and it's incredible!

I am getting a 1Gbps FTTP broadband connection within the next few weeks and have been looking at various Mesh options. I live in a very old brick built house and WiFi doesn't travel well between rooms, let alone throughout the entire house.

There is an wired Ethernet connection between our (soon to go) Sky Router and the kitchen at the other side of the house. Is it possible to get a decent mesh array with one box by the router (connected to the main unit) with a second connected to the main unit in the kitchen using Ethernet - and other units around the house wirelessly connected to these two? Leaving aside cost considerations, what would be the best system to employ to provide the fastest connection (I assume this is wifi 6) and the best coverage? I am thinking of a total of six units to cover the whole house and the external garage.

One other question: I have read somewhere that Sky Q doesn't work well with some Mesh systems, although I am not sure if that only applies to Mesh from a Sky broadband hub. At the moment the Sky mini boxes sort of work to provide some connectivity around the house. I know that the Sky box built in mesh will not work with non-Sky broadband of course. Has anyone had problems with Sky Q from a non-Sky ISP and a Mesh system?

Youíll see already that I have no expertise here, but I can say that that the tri band linksys node that came with my installation is infinitely more effective that the WiFi in the old Sky router I was using before. Itís getting a usable signal through (or maybe around) thick stone walls where before I was relying on an unreliable repeater. There is certainly a loss of speed but in the difficult spots Iím still getting 10x with my 100mb service what I was getting with my 38mb.
Iíve been looking at additional nodes and my understanding is that you have to link all nodes to the master node wirelessly even if youíre then going to use some of them wired. No idea about compatibility. It seems triband can be significantly faster than dual band if there is any contention for the service.
