Meshforce M7 Tri-Band Whole-Home Mesh WiFi System Review

Meshforce M7 Tri-Band: As you may recall from my previous evaluations, I like easy-to-install equipment and have been spoilt by the abundance of easy-to-install goods available these days. This is not the case with the MeshForce M7 Tri-Band Whole Home Mesh WiFi System.

Yes, I like the simplicity of installation – but I’m also fussy. While the Meshforce M7 system is simple to install and provides enough performance coverage, I believe it is lacking in functionality and options.

I like the aesthetics of this system — very classy-looking similar spherical nodes spanning around five by five inches — which allows it to be used practically everywhere. Each node has a silver ornamental disc on top and an LED indication on the front. As with the majority of similar devices, the Meshforce M7 logo emits a green LED to indicate a successful connection.

You may also click the settings button at the bottom to get a page that allows you to change the date and time, add more mesh nodes, and establish port forwarding rules. The wifi settings only enable you to modify the SSID password.

I wished for an encryption and channel setting. However, I want to separate the WiFi radio bands, which is not possible. Worse still, there are no pre-configured settings for gaming or video streaming, nor are there any parental controls.

These are the system’s fundamental characteristics as described on the Amazon Website.

Each node is equipped with a dual-core CPU, 256MB of RAM, four internal antennae, and 802.11ac circuitry capable of MU-MIMO (simultaneous data streaming), beamforming (direct data delivery to clients), and band steering (the router decided which bands to use).

This is an AC2100 system capable of data transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz radio band and up to 867Mbps on each of the two 5GHz channels. One of the 5GHz bands is reserve for wireless backhaul, but you may utilise a wired backhaul setup to free up that band.

You may download the My Mesh mobile app, which works flawlessly on my iPhone – others have reported that it works as well on their Android devices. It navigates to your My WiFi screen, where you’ll see a network map and information on your internet upload and download rates. To determine whether customers (at work) or family members (at home) are connect. Tap any node on the map and examine information such as connection quality, online status, IP and MAC addresses, and firmware version.

How to Construct

The simplest approach to configure your M7 Tri-Band Whole Home Mesh WiFi System is to watch the instructional video included on the instruction page — or you may follow the written instructions.

Therefore, connect one of the nodes (they are power) and download My Mesh over your internet connection. I did this on my iPhone WiFi (although it may be more efficient to do it through your computer) and enter my password and tapp Setup on the app.

The software determines your internet connection, and then you hit Next. I changed the network’s name and assigned it a password. It connects after a few moments. Determine the location of your additional two nodes. I spaced mine rather far apart to see whether they could maintain excellent connection. Indeed, they did.

I joined each node to the system one at a time, waiting for the green signal. With my mobile phone in hand, I wait for each node to flash green. If I didn’t see the green glow, I shifted the node slightly (so I knew there was a reliable connection from the node).

Thoughts

Although I truly appreciate the Meshforce M7 Tri-Band Whole Home Mesh WiFi System. The Throughput Test indicate acceptable speeds But it was not nearly as fast as the competitors.
