There's nothing like a Wi-Fi dropout to hit you off your stride. Whether you're midway through a marathon on Netflix, or you work from home and can't afford to lose connectivity with your office, there's no good time for your network to have a wobble.
We've looked at routers that you might be able to replace your bog-standard one with elsewhere, as a way of getting some extra range and stability, but, if you're serious about making a home network that can expand to cover big areas, and doesn't risk flakey connections depending on where you stand, you'll probably want to invest in a mesh Wi-Fi system.
These systems effectively extend and strengthen your home Wi-Fi network, to make sure that it can reach even your most remote corners and provide even coverage throughout your home. Better yet, they're no longer the preserve of IT experts and techies. There are now countless mesh Wi-Fi systems on the market that offer nearly plug-and-play simplicity so that you can reap their benefits without needing a degree in electronics.
With that in mind, we've rounded up the best of the best to create a list of options for you to explore, and choose between if you're thinking of going down the mesh Wi-Fi route. We've tested these models carefully with ease of use, affordability, range and speed all in mind, to ensure they merit a place on our list.
