You might want to Google wifi mesh first so that you have some background knowledge?

Mesh is not an extender; it does not repeat wifi but has specific mechanism which allows your network to have only 1 SSID and your device gets handed over from one node to another.

Depending on which model of mesh systems you buy, some have dedicated wifi band while some share the 5Ghz we backhaul and some do have an AP mode.

what's the catch with mesh router? slower speed? works like an extender?
any brand to recommend?
