Now BTO new design layout is almost like this.
After reading no one is able to feedback the mesh? The singnet below picture also does not tally. It shows the room door is open airly without blocking at all. Thus confirm the signal is good lah

Has Singtel messaged you privately?

The last time I did post a question, they private message me to link up with relevant department for help..

As for your question, it was already answered many times in this thread.. For mesh, you have to make sure there is a line of sight. If your door needs to be closed, it's an environmental constraint mah..

Further, illustration should be taken briefly for the idea, not follow exactly.

I closed my door and my wifi still works fine leh..

Hi endlssorrow,

We tried reaching out to you in the other forum thread, but received no response from you.

Anyway, below is a compilation of reviews from HWZ forum users on our WiFi Mesh:

No way. Mine often disconnects from the internet. Got to log into the admin so often to change the control channel

Too much wifi interference...you won't get the full speed and bandwidth.

Hi I recently bought Xiaomi Wifi Amplifier but I could not set it up and I then bought another Xiaomi wifi repeater V2 but I received the same error. It says “Device didn’t receive information from Wi-di, you can try: 1. Reduce wifi signal interference and try again”. I did try but received the same error. Pls can someone help?

Read the reports of negative experiences towards Singtel provided mesh solution.

For anyone who wants to buy Singtel Mesh solutions like Askey and Airties, the recommendation is not to buy, unless you need to have wireless connection to Singtel TV Box. Even in that case, Netgear Orbi is a better solution.

Just to add for Starhub users: Starhub Smart Wifi (Nokia Beacon 1 dual band AC1200 Mesh) is bad as well. But the Smart Wifi Pro (Linksys MX4200 tri-band) should be much better.

Which is better? Wired or WiFi?

As shown in the comparison table below, the speed you experience on your fibre broadband connection is dependent on whether you are on a wired or WiFi connection.

WiFi connections have limitations due to its nature and you may only experience up to 230Mbps, depending on your router and device capabilities.

Although we strive to provide the best WiFi experience possible, we strongly recommend a wired connection to optimise your fibre broadband connection because:

Wired connections are fast and consistent. When downloading/uploading through wired connections, data are transferred on faster and consistent speed throughout the day, even for bandwidth-intensive activities (gaming, video streaming, file sharing, etc).
Best thing I did to get faster, better wifi connection is to stop using the router provided by singtel and use my own router......
