Can you still connect to your original router wifi or to the first unit wifi?
that depends on where u placing your 1st wifi mesh unit connected to LAN of your router.

if you place it too near to the router, it will cause interference and i suggest you turn the router wifi off.

if lets say u r placing the first wifi mesh away from the router, like different areas, then your wifi on router can be turned on.

so the devices will be steered between the 2 wifi mesh nodes rather than including your router, so u gotta plan carefully.

So any update on the wifi mesh things? Anyone use it/try it yet ? My router will be in my living room, my desktop in my master room which is quite a distance away from the router.

Heard from Singtel they have change the Aztech router. Anyone know which model they change to ? understand the previous router sucks.

in this thread alone, i have spoken on so many examples of how singtel wifi mesh has improved the wifi performance and how it works, maybe you can view the previous posts?

singtel has abandoned aztech-OEM routers for the new singtel wifi gogabit router ac1900...

Actually its depends more on the client device(laptop,mobile or tablet). If your device equipped with a better and more antenna den u have better speed as well.

But the wifi mesh must connect to the router, how to place it away from router? Hence, I guess most of the user will just place it side by side instead of getting a super long lan cable and place it elsewhere.

Some have their house wired so can do that... actually my place comes with data points in every room but unfortunately the 2 cables to the rooms in the middle of the house are not working.

In any case, the purpose of the mesh is so that your entire house can be connected in 1 network/ SSID. Those who prefers or don't mind multiple network can just get APs which is cheaper anyway

many options in the market bro.. can just biy & setup urself, no need to engage installer


Btw, since u are already on wifi mesh, y r u looking at APs? IMO, the wifi mesh is superior over AP

so far so good as it serves my purpose of reliable, stable connection and full coverage throughout the house. Actually I even get reliable connection in my gym & clubhouse!


especially like that it comes with 2 lan connections so I can connect to my MIO & android box in the living room.


Speed wise, its not as fast compared to the AC1900 ST router at very short distance (same room, few metres apart) where I could wifi speed in excess of 300 mbps.


The only drawback that I'm concerned about is that the speed drop when multiple devices are retrieving data. Eg, when I did speed test on the Apple TV & my mobile. In theory, the wifi mesh is spec'ed at 1600 mbps rite? but so far I get only around 300 max. My plan is Singtel 1Gb fibre.

Yes, I also notice that speed do drop if too many device connect at the same time. Mine sometime went below 100. Never hit 200 before. most is near to 170. depending on timing I run the test.

That why thinking of laying long lan cable do a direct connection. Will it be much more better then the mesh?

Will your mesh sometime turn red on the 5ghz ?
