what brand mesh networks will work with my Cox router
I have Cox internet with an Arris TG1682-g router (from Cox). I have a few dead zones in my 2 story house and would like to add a mesh network. But I am looking for a brand to buy...other than the POD devices.
Amazon and Best Buy sell Netgear, TP-Link and a few dozen others at better prices that the Cox Pod.
I called BestBuy to see if their gear work with Cox..they were not sure. I called Cox tech support...same answer (of course they want to sell their Pods)
Anyone have a suggestion or experience here with compatibility?
If you have a wireless router and need to extend its wireless range, you can buy Range Extenders, Mesh Routers or plain ol' routers. With Range Extenders, Panoramic is limited to only the Pods.
If you want to install plain ol' routers in the dead zones, these will work with your Arris TG1682. However, you wrote mesh so I'm trying to figure your best approach.
The question is we don't know if these rooms are dead zones or not. These rooms may be dead zones due to the wireless limitations of the Arris TG1682.
If you want to install a mesh network in your home, there are brands complete with a router and 2, 3 or 4 satellite Access Points you can install in the other rooms.
