Mesh or Router for Gigabox

I am looking for advice on improving coverage and strength of wifi signal in my home with UPC Gigabox. I have tried the boosters and while they improve coverage a bit, the speed is dramatically impacted in the entire home and therefore not acceptable.

 

Does anyone have experience with specific routers or mesh systems that you know work well in maintaining speed and increasing coverage with UPC gigabox? Our home is ~250m2 on one floor.

 

Thanks!

  1. Change the Location of Your Router.
  2. Avoid turning on different wireless devices at one time.
  3. Change the channel of your wireless router.
  4. Use a Homemade WiFi Extender.

Mesh and repeaters look simple and easy on the outside, but it limits the available band width in your LAN.

Whenever possible I would go for a controller based wifi. I have deployed Ubiquiti equipment in my home.

Well...in my case referenced mesh router increased the speed significantly.

UPC Gigabox WLAN measurement was around 150Mbps, with mesh router at the same point and same device 450Mbps. Of course, Gigabox is set to modem mode only now.
