Everyone knows the feeling. You’ve just set up the wireless network in your house. You go into a random room and the connection is terrible. Closer to the router, the speeds are faster, but your Wi-Fi signal degrades as it travels further away through brick walls and metal studs. So how can you use the internet reliably in the furthest reaches of your house? If you set up a mesh network Wi-Fi system properly in your house, you’ll be covered!

What Is Mesh Network Wi-Fi?

Previously, you had to use repeaters and Wi-Fi extenders to spread your internet signal far enough in your house. Unfortunately, while these generally work, every time the repeater repeats the signal, your throughput speed effectively halves.

Enter mesh networking. Finally, you can create a complete Wi-Fi network in your home that runs at full speed. By simply placing nodes around the house, you can make sure your kid in the attic can research on the internet for homework…or game at full speed. The TV in your basement won’t have any trouble streaming the latest sports and movies. And best of all, there’s just one single network SSID, so you’ll always have the best connection, even when moving between nodes!

Use a FlashRouter to Put VPN On Your Mesh Network

While you’ll have internet connectivity when you set up a mesh network, your devices in the furthest reaches of your house still aren’t covered by your VPN. That smart TV deep in the basement? Your Xbox in the attic? None have native VPN capabilities. But, with a FlashRouter, all of your devices are covered! Stream from anywhere in your house, anywhere in the world with a FlashRouter!

All you have to do to use a FlashRouter with your mesh network is to daisychain your mesh router into the FlashRouter and you’ll be set!

How Can A FlashRouter Expand My Mesh Network Capabilities?

Whether it’s Google Nest Wi-Fi, Network Orbi, Linksys Velop, T-Link Deco, Amazon eero, or any other mesh network Wi-Fi system, it needs a powerful hub to get the most out of your network. And, even if these mesh systems have VPN capabilities, they are limited.

When you add a FlashRouter at the fore of your mesh network, using the dual-router setup pictured above, you’ll be able to extend VPN across your devices. Furthermore, with our specialized Merlin products, you can seamlessly integrate a FlashRouter into your existing Asus setup.

So, say “Goodbye!” to wireless dead spots and say “Hello!” to network-wide protection with a VPN-configured mesh system powered by FlashRouters!

How To Setup Mesh Network Wi-Fi

Extending coverage to your entire house has never been easier than with a mesh network setup. While the router system depends on your needs, popular options include Netgear Robi, Linksys Velop, Asus ZenWifi, Google Nest WiFi, and more. Most come with an app to download to your phone to walk you through the steps. Generally, you will:

  1. Connect the mesh router to a power outlet and your modem.
  2. Connect the mesh router with your smartphone app
  3. Follow the instructions on the app to name the router and create an SSID/password
  4. Plug in and name the access nodes. Generally, it’s best to choose an area halfway between the router and the dead spot in your home for the best coverage
  5. Finalize your network on the app. If you weren’t prompted to create a password in step 3, you will set one up now.
  6. Enjoy full Wi-Fi coverage in your house!
