Seamless, Secure Wi-Fi for Every Room
Deco M5 uses three units to deliver up to 4,500 sq. ft. of seamless Wi-Fi coverage. Deco’s ART (Adaptive Routing Technology) automatically chooses the best path for all your devices to keep your Wi-Fi running as fast as possible. No matter which room you’re in, Deco lets you stream music and movies and run your smart home devices without interruption.
TP-Link HomeCareTM gives Deco the most comprehensive security of any whole-home Wi-Fi system, protecting every device from security threats. HomeCare includes parental controls easy to use right from the Deco app. You can even prioritize devices and activities so your network stays fast, even when everyone is online at once.
Stay Connected In Every Room
Average routers are designed to send Wi-Fi in all directions but don’t always provide full coverage. Range extenders improve coverage but create multiple networks that can be difficult to navigate. Deco M5 uses several units working together to create seamless Wi-Fi in every room.
HomeCare for Cyber Security
Every device that uses Wi-Fi is protected by Deco. That includes things that don’t normally have protection from viruses and malware, like Wi-Fi cameras, smart devices and game consoles. That’s because Deco includes three years of antivirus security with HomeCare powered by Trend Micro.
Keep Your Family Safe Online
Deco M5’s parental controls can be used right from the Deco app. Restrict sites by age, content ratings or categories like social media, news and entertainment. View reports of internet activity, schedule Wi-Fi access and set time limits for family members. You can even pause the internet!
Keep Your Favorites Running Fast
Optimize your internet bandwidth with QoS (Quality of Service) to get the best performance from every device. Simply choose which devices and activities have priority when you’re online, and when your network becomes busier, Deco M5 keeps your preferred connections running fast.
Run Your Wi-Fi From Your Phone
With the Deco app, you’re just a few taps away from faster, safer Wi-Fi. It includes features and settings to help you easily protect every connected device, choose which sites your kids can access, keep connections fast and create separate accounts for visitors.
Wi-Fi That’s Always Strong
Deco is always working to keep all of your devices online. Whether you’re sitting on the couch or moving around your home, Deco automatically connects each device to the best unit. With Deco, you can watch, stream and read what you love without losing Wi-Fi.
Expand Your Wi-Fi In No Time
Need more Wi-Fi coverage? Just add a Deco unit! Three units cover up to 4,500 sq. ft., and each additional unit adds another 1,500 sq. ft. of coverage. You can place up to 10 Deco units on your home network to bring strong Wi-Fi coverage to every room.

The set up was really easy, I'm getting speeds that max out my 50mb connection throughout every corner of my house.
It took a couple of firmware updates to fix a few problems and I was hesitant at first to endorse this product, but now it works as advertised.
Please understand that this mesh/router combo is the type of product that you set up once and forget about it, meaning there are not that many advanced settings. But in my house I have a control 4 whole home autometion system, with multiple lighting options, multiple security cameras and multiple devices and all are working great
I live in 3000 - 3500 square ft house with 50 Mbps fiber optic connection and my old router (ASUS RT-N66U) used to serve me well. In last couple of years, number of wireless devices (ecobee, Rainmachine, arlo, smartthings, echo and several sticks etc…) significantly increased in my house. So, I wanted to buy a new router which covers my house better. Researched online and bought a Netgear Orbi AC3000 (2 pack) for around $350.
Orbi system is a good product and I installed (with latest firmware) one base unit in M Bedroom and one satellite unit in farthest required location (study room). Wi-Fi coverage is improved compared to my old router. Here are my problems.
1) With Orbi, my backyard does not have good Wi-Fi signal, they claim the system should cover 5000 square ft but it is not doing in my case. I need to buy another Orbi satellite to solve it, which costs additional $200. I do not want to spend more money.
2) Though Orbi has dedicated back-haul, speeds never matched to my ISP’s 50 Mbps. I think, with any current Wi-Fi systems, satellites have to be placed near to base. Any obstructions between main and satellite can significantly degrade overall Wi-Fi system performance. -- I used Orbi’s wireless back-haul.
I am not satisfied with Orbi and decided to try Deco (3 pack) because of price and coverage it can give. Bought Deco (3 pack) from Amazon for a real good price, less than $200 (lightening deal + coupon).
I was able setup and update firmware on all of the 3 Decos. My initial installation was one base unit in M Bedroom, one satellite unit in Study room (farthest) and another satellite unit in Living room (not very far). This made a triangle. I did check the speeds. The speeds are good and similar to Orbi. My backyard now has some good coverage with Deco (3 pack) than Orbi(2 pack).
I am still not satisfied and decided to use TP-Link’s wired Ethernet backhaul feature. First, I connected my farthest Deco (from study room) with wire, this increased overall speeds. This explains, if you setup a Deco unit wirelessly too far from base unit, it degrades overall performance. I finally decided to connect all the Deco units (3 ) with wire. Surprise, I have 50 Mbps Wi-Fi in most of the areas in my hose and end of the backyard, I am getting 20 Mbps. I am very happy with my current setup. I like the IOS app also.
Note: I used an old ASUS switch ( Link: https://www.amazon.com/GX1005B-V4-ports-Ethernet-Switch/dp/B00383A2AY ) to connect satellite Deco units for Ethernet back-haul.
As some folks described that Deco M5 does not have advanced features. Hope TP-Link provides these features in future firmware updates. For now, I was able to connect easily (no special setup needed) and use Ecobee 3, Echo Dot, Rainmachine, Smartthings Hub and Arlo system.
TP-Link Deco M5 is a right product for many many many users out there who are like me. You get a wonderful Wi-Fi system for decent price. Some people points out that, Netgear Orbi works better in old houses without Ethernet wiring. I would say, why don’t you buy two Deco M5 systems (total of 6 Deco units connected) for approximately same price of Orbi (3 pack) and install everywhere in your house. I think Deco M5 units gives better results than Orbi for the same price.
***** BONUS ****
Attached a picture (slide) describing tests I made. This explains how Deco M5 performed in my house when I replaced my old router. I hope the slide helps people to decide on this TP-Link’s Deco M5.
Thanks for reading.
Update on 6-28-2017: TP-Link just pushed new firmware update, which gave some of the advanced features like DDNS, Port Forwarding, and Address Reservation,
