Wi-Fi Mesh Systems are home networking kits usually consisting of one main router node which is connected to your current router, and then one or two additional nodes or pods which are placed strategically around the home to improve the strength and consistency of the wifi coverage in these areas.
In this way you can get a better wifi signal in all parts of the home, when there may be been weak spots or deadzones just using your main router. Different kits are available depending on the size of your home and the number of floors the coverage needs to reach to.
Wi-Fi Mesh Systems are on the whole quite expensive home networking solutions, and the more range you want, the more the price goes up. However, they are so far proving to be very effective in delivering consistent signals through larger homes, and feedback on them has generally been good.
