With lightbulbs, doorbells, motion detectors, TVs media players, Sonos and multiple Macs & PCs we have over 50 wireless devices and its starting to show. Adding a new device usually takes a few attempts.
Currently have a Telstra Frontier Gateway serving up wireless to all my Son’s stuff and an Airport Extreme, at the other end of the house, connected via ethernet to the gateway serving the rest. A Sonos Boost, running Sonosnet, is connected via ethernet to Airport.
The Gateway can serve about 30 clients at a time, the Airport 50.
Thinking of putting the Gateway in bridge mode and replacing the Airport with Netgear Orbi or Linksys Velop.
Does anyone have experience or advice with these. Open to other recommendations. Its a 3 br duplex, so not huge.
