‘ZDNet Recommends’ What exactly does that mean?

ZDNet’s recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of YOU, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form


Save $70 on the Meshforce M7 tri-band mesh Wi-Fi system

Build yourself a high-reliability, pro-grade Wi-Fi network for less.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The router that you were supplied by your internet provider is junk. Sure, it's fine when coping with a few devices, but throw in work from home and an extended start home system, and you can quickly see the cracks form.

It's a great time to upgrade your Wi-Fi with the latest mesh networking systems for improved coverage.

The problem is that good quality networking gear is not cheap, but right now Meshforce has a good deal on its M7 Tri-Band whole home mesh Wi-Fi system.

Networks can be complicated to set up, but not the Meshforce. One feature that I like a lot is that it is easy to set up -- you can have it out of the box, updated, and up and running in minutes. 

The 3-pack is perfect for larger homes, capable of covering 6,000 square feet -- and if that's not enough for you, you can extend coverage even more by adding a further three mesh points to your setup. Mesh means that you can move from one point to another seamlessly and automatically, without having to reconnect to a different access point. 

The Meshforce M7 is packed with pro features that you'd expect -- parental controls, guest network, fast roaming, smart QoS, WPS, dedicated backhaul, and more -- and updates are pushed to the devices and installed automatically based on a maintenance schedule you can set, so you're always up to date.
