Question about mesh network

Question about mesh network
Hi all,

I will move into a new place, a big old house, with router far away, and no ethernet plugs.

I have one solution, which is to put my synology next to my Klimax on the same switch. But that is quite noisy.

Another solution would be to set-up a Mesh network, like Orbi from Netgear, or Deco from TP-Link, or Eero, or...

Has someone experimented this ? Speed seems OK (DSF is no more than 10 Mb/s and those Mesh network claim Gb/s) but what about latency ?

Thx !

RE: Question about mesh network
I have 3 DS/DSMs in the house - only one is hard wired.

I used to use Sonos before so had a number of Boosts and Bridges around.

One DS and one DSM each connect to a local Boost which in turn is connected via a mesh network to a Sonos Boost which is hardwired to my router. The server is hardwired to the same router.

This all works fine except I have problems with 24/192 WAV files. 24/96 files and below are fine. I can also stream the highest quality JB Radio 2 stream - 16/192 OK.

So from my experience mesh, at least with Sonos kit, is fine.

that is not that much a good news, as I have 16 albums in DSD128, 509 in DSD64, and 209 in 24/192...

Anyway, I bought the TP-Link Deco M5; I'll see what the result is... I may then disable the minimserver conversion to wav files...

RE: Question about mesh network
I should really have said it’s an intermittent problem. Currently listening to Eagles Hotel California 24/192 transcoded to Wav with no problem.

Hopefully you’ll be OK.

RE: Question about mesh network
Am using an Orbi mesh network and stream multi channel DSF files to my Panasonic player using MinimServer and BubbleUPnP. No problems whatsoever but my Pana is only 2 metres away from the Orbi.

Depending on the size of the house and building material, you may want to get more than 2 Orbi units. Suggest getting a phone app to measure the wifi signal and add an additional satellite if required.

iStumbler, free, is good for doing room to room wifi signal tests.
Can be a bit buggy and moody and nags. But fine to solve your problem
