Wi-Fi dead spots are the modern scourge that keeps us from enjoying Netflix in the back room or getting the smart scale in the bathroom to sync with the internet. Rather than buying beefier, ever-more-expensive routers, you can try a three-piece mesh router that blankets the whole house with distributed satellite units, or just add a Wi-Fi extender to your existing network. Right now, Rock Space has a sale on both kinds of Wi-Fi gadgets.
The Rock Space Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System usually sells for $170, but you can get it for $140 right now if you apply promo code 5HQJJ7GN at checkout. The deal expires Oct. 31.
This mesh router uses a trio of black, cube-shaped satellites and achieves speed up to 1,200Mbps using MU-MIMO technology. Rock Space says this system can cover about 5,400 square feet. Like any mesh router, it gives you a single SSID for your whole home (that’s the downside of most Wi-Fi extenders — SSIDs that change depending upon where you are in the house) and is easy to set up and configure via a mobile app. The dual channels give you both 2.4 and 5GHz networks, and it’s rated for 1,167Mbps.
