Or rather, how not to
July 11th, 2018
To get better wi-fi coverage at home, I recently started looking at getting a mesh system. With mesh, two or more units are placed around your house and then they will magically work together to produce perfect coverage everywhere. Each node typically also has a couple of RJ45 ports for connecting wired network equipment. I ended up betting on the affordable AC1202 kit by D-Link (same as AC1203 except with two nodes instead of three). I had originally planned to wall mount one node, and the guy in the shop told be this would be easy because they come with mounting holes - which turned out to be inaccurate. Read on for a simple method endorsed by no one.
