Is there a mesh router with usb 3.0 port? And does all mesh routers are mu-mimo?
How much are those?
About 17,500 to 18k for a 2-pack.
Hi. Is there a way, I can install VPN on my wifi router (provided by telco) so that all my devices connected on the network can enjoy virtual private network?
Probably not using the telco-provided router. You can have it changed to bridge mode and purchase a separate router to do the VPN. The model of the router depends on the VPN service that you plan to avail.
For me, I'm using StrongVPN. They have provided a list of supported/compatible routers that can connect to their VPN service.
To give you an idea:
1. Go here: https://strongvpn.com/vpn-routers-new/
2. Scroll down to "Choose the Best VPN Router for Your Home"
3. Immediately below that, you'll see two tabs; "Preloaded Routers" and "DIY Routers".
Pre-loaded routers are routers that they have pre-converted and deemed ready for use. If you're in the PH, you're probably better off choosing the 2nd option, which is DIY.
4. Clicking on "DIY Routers" will display all the supported router brands and models (in tabs). If you decide to choose StrongVPN, I highly recommend that you only purchase routers in that list, which have been proven to work correctly with their service.
FWIW, I use a Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H. I use it only as my VPN gateway. It's WiFi is turned off and I still have a separate firewall for regular internet traffic.
Questions on Google WiFi. I'm traveling in Japan now and want to get a pack of 3.
Google WiFi units are autovolt?
The models here in Japan should work in the Philippines, right?
(I ask because in Google's Support pages it says that one should only get packs in the country where they would be used, though I notice some of you bought from the U.S.)
Mine’s are from the us. And they work just fine.
You can check the packaging or its documentation if it states anything that it is manufactured specifically for the Japanese market. Something like "Not for sale outside Japan" or something along those lines is a clear indication of potential issues ahead if you go through with it.
The Philippines roughly follows the US/FCC standard as for the allowed WIFi channels to be used. The Japanese WiFi channels are a bit more restrictive so it may not support many of the channels available to other versions of the device.
Another issue you might face is warranty and after-sales support.
If you're not going to save a lot of money buying it from Japan, I'd heed Google's advice and just buy it locally (or the US).
Been using the Google Wifi Mesh for quite sometime and yup when I initially linked it to the app, there was notification that the device might not work in your country/region, etc. . It's the same notification I got when I started using my Google Home. It works fine. no issues whatsoever.
Where did you buy yours if I may ask?
Same here! I also have both, also got the notification, but it works
Here in Singapore. Google Wifi is already available here via a partnership with Starhub, but I bought mine from an online seller so it's not a local unit. It's packaged as a set basically 3 wifi meshes, but some online sellers are selling it individually or in sets of two.
Thanks @leninmac and @potpot2
I just chatted online with a Google service rep - very helpful, he was. So, in my own words, while Google might officially say that you should buy only from the country you will use it in, and perhaps they have to word it this way for legal reasons ... yes, bottom line, the units purchased in Japan will work in the Philippines.
Does Deco M9 support ethernet backhaul? I'm looking for a mesh router where nodes can be connected via cable for a stable connection.
^I connected one of my Google units via Ethernet.
Thanks! How was the performance with mixed brand setup?
I have an existing on wall lan port, so I think I'd better use it for wired backhaul rather than having it wireless.
Choosing between Deco M5 and M9, M5 costs 13.5k for a 3-pack while M9 costs 17.5k for a 2-pack setup. Is the price difference totally worth it?
I let go of my Apple networking devices, so it’s not mixed use, just Google Wifi throughout. Yeah, I also prefer Ethernet backhaul where I can. I must say that the gain from doing so is not as much as it was with my Apple airports, such is the wifi strength of the Google mesh.
Switch is selling the Linksys Velop Mesh WiFi in Glorietta
How much are they selling it?
Do you mind me asking where you live? I just emailed Plume and ask them if they ship to the Philippines. They emailed back and wrote that they are only available in US and Canada. But, they are planning to roll out to Philippines soon. I hope when that happens, the prices remain cheap, I mean compared to other mesh routers.
