(No, I didn’t actually buy the $500 Eero Mesh Router system, but I was just researching it as I’ve been having some WiFi coverage issues in my house. Sounds cool, but pricey.)


  1. Thanks Jonathan.

    Instead of the Eero, take a look at the Ubiquiti Unifi, company with a bit more of a track record, and MUCH cheaper. I got 3 of them for less than $200 (now $180) and had the three of them setup in less than 30 minutes. They are 2.4 GHz only, but you can get the dual band for a bit more.

    • Thanks for the tip, Jared. So you like the Unifi system? I wonder why the Eero costs so much then. I have one of those $30 WiFi powerline extender things right now but they are rather slow.

      • I’m thrilled with the Unifi system, I purchased it for my parents, they went through hell trying to find someone to set it up, I was really afraid it would be a hassel. I ended up setting it up when I was in town a few years ago, and it was a breeze, it has worked flawlessly since, the only time I’ve logged back in was to disable the LEDs on the access points. The three units cover their very large 7,000 sqft house and I recently considered adding a unit to get better coverage for a detached patio. My tests with “Wifi Analyzer” a must-have Android app have been great. The house is wired for ethernet, so all three of the units are connected to the router and are acting as Access Points, not Range Extenders, which I think makes a big difference in speeds (both the Unifi and Eero will work both ways).

        At much smaller house, I’m using the Netgear Powerline Extenders and recently setup a Netgear Range Extender to get better coverage for by phone and tablet in the back bedroom.(I stuck with Netgear as I have their dual function cable modem router). The Powerline Extenders have been fine, but I’m not having as much luck with the Range Extender. I’m considering chaining them together, I’ll let you know.

    When I try to apply this promotion, I get
    “! The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”
    I did use a similar promotion from Chase last year. Maybe I already used Discover cashback previously.

  3. Stephen says:

    To add to what Jared said, you should also look at Luma (
    A three-pack there is still $249 (for limited time pre-order) and does the mesh networking plus lots of other control features like content blocking based on “rating” for children’s devices, a “pause button” for the internet, timers/curfew, more. I just ordered mine, so I can’t speak from personal experience yet, but it looks good.

  4. Took a few days for the code to work after I added my card. It worked with a using only $0.01 from cash back points.
