    I hear it is good.

    But I don't really trust internet devices run by say Amazon or Google ... privacy wise.

    Although I have an Android phone ....

    1. Raspberry Pi Zero W - $10
    2. BrosTrend 650Mbps Long Range Linux WiFi Adapter - $24
    3. microUSB to USB 3.1 adapter - $8
    4. [optional] PoE hat. $15

    There's so much fun network learning to be had this way too!

    And if you neighbor pisses you off... adding a deauther to these is pretty easy.

    Why buy off the shelf when you can build your own apache attack mesh network?

    What ever you get it works perfectly for 6 months and then develops weird problems. Except for if there is link, tech or sys in the name, then it is 1 month. It was true for my Mikrotik wifi and just today my Google Wifi started acting up really badly. It's been running like clockwork since February. So it was a bit overdue.

    @N00bPancakes yeah that's true. Friend wants it who isn't a hardcore techie anyway.

    @HiFiWiFiSciFi lol I was expecting this answer.

    @Ubbe well so stop buying stuff?

    @SortOfTested thanks. Will share it with him.

    I. I don't think the friend that @F1973 was mentioning is quite that tech savvy and I doubt @F1973 wants to faff with it every time something doesn't work quite right.
    II. I don't think that does Mesh networking as easily or good as it does for products right out the box.
    III. I don't think the aforementioned friend would be too hyped about a flimsy bunch of "stuff" held together by ducttape and zipties.

    In my company I setup a Ubiquiti system.

    They have been running stably for 2 years now (except for one getting killed from a lightning surge) and if someone says they have an issue (which for some reason I never have an issue) I do a software update and it works totally fine.
