Amplifi's Mesh Points Turn Basically Any Old Router Into a Mesh Router

The Amplifi Wi-Fi mesh router system is one of the best networking setups money can buy, but now, you can add its excellent range extenders to your existing router, turning basically any network into a mesh network.

Unlike traditional range extenders, Amplifi’s Mesh Points work as true mesh routers, meaning you won’t have to connect to separate networks (like myinternet_1, myinternet_2) to take advantage of the improved range. If you’re using your phone and enter an area of your house that gets a stronger signal from the Mesh Point than from your base station, your devices will switch over automatically, without any tinkering in your Wi-Fi settings.

All you have to do is plug it in, use the clever magnetic mount to orient it however you want, give it your Wi-Fi credentials via a mobile app, and voila, you have a mesh network.
