The best mesh router Black Friday deals to expand your home Wi-Fi


Looking for mesh Wi-Fi Black Friday deals to boost your home's wireless network? Then we've got you covered.

Black Friday sales have now officially begun, making this an ideal time to upgrade your home Wi-Fi. Many of the top-ranking products usually have a hefty price tag attached, but the discounts applied at this timer of year can shave a great deal off the asking price of mesh Wi-Fi routers

Unlike standard routers, which comprise of a single unit that you plug into your modem or internet connection, mesh routers include several units that you can place around your home.

These units, also known as satellites, all connect to the same network, and help broadcast your Wi-Fi to even the furthest reaches of your property.

So, if you have an area of your home where Wi-Fi devices struggle to get a fast and consistent connection, a mesh router could be the answer. The units create a mesh network, which means as you move around, your Wi-Fi devices will connect to the nearest unit, ensuring you get the best possible connection seamlessly without having to enter a new password.

Because of the advanced technology within mesh routers (with many now also supporting Wi-Fi 6), and the fact that they often include multiple units, they can often be quite expensive.

So, if you're tempted by one of these devices, but are put off by the price, then we will hopefully be able to help by gathering together the best mesh router Black Friday deals as they appear, up to Cyber Monday and beyond.

Netgear Orbi Whole Home Mesh WiFi System

Fast, affordable, tri-band mesh Wi-Fi

Speed: IEEE 802.11ac dual-band with 1x 2.4GHz (400Mbps), 1x 5GHz (866Mbps) | Connectivity: 2 x Gigabit Ethernet | Features: Beamforming implicit and explicit for 2.4GHz/5GHz bands

The tri-band Orbi Whole Home AC1200 offers solid performance at a reasonable price, and will be a good choice for most small and medium-size homes that need to improve their Wi-Fi coverage. It’s simple to set up and use for newcomers, although Netgear’s decision to use Disney’s subscription-based Circle service for parental controls is discouraging, considering that rival routers and mesh systems have often provided better parental controls for free. The lack of Ethernet ports for wired connections as well as more advanced features in the Orbi app might turn off experienced users as well.
