I've also got the Deco's.  Great for painting your house / outdoors with wifi.

 

Unfortunately, they do have issues with regards to the firmware.

 

Most glaring is that if you don't happen to live in the middle of nowhere then it may be an issue that the network is always on a certain channel and cannot be changed, even if there are empty channels present.

 

One complaint I do have though other than the channel issue (doesn't really affect me) is that I have to disable roaming on certain devices within the Deco software in order for some devices (eg my Ring Doorbell and my Alexas) to be able to connect at all.

Don't get me wrong.  I wouldn't trade them at all.  That absolute best thing I find is that I get a notification every time one of my mooching neighbours latch onto my guest network.  One click and poof they're gone.

 

I used to paint everything with multiple routers etc.  Switching to the mesh network on a Deco made my life so much easier.

Pretty happy with my UPS purchase, power has been a little choppy this year with brownouts or blackouts at least once a month.

I picked up a Cyberpower PR2200ELCDSL to support multiple systems and I then control it in the Unraid UPS panel (apcupsd) and it has worked a treat.

Damn..that's why I keep having random disconnections. After changing 15 cards now I know the reason :D

Happy new year to all!
