No extenders.

Pods suffice, within limits. If i use Eero will we even need the TP link? Speed: Dual-band, AC2200 MU-MIMO However, Techlicious doesn’t recommend xFi Pods for most people looking to extend their home WiFi network. So you actually need more Pods in-line to move signals around the same size house, with each added Pod diminishing the speed more as you move away from your Xfinity WiFi router. I have an Xfinity gateway modem/router and 1st generation google router hardwired to that. Mesh network appears to be better than using an extender.
You can check out the Orbi outdoor extender here:, From Bruce Ballis on August 14, 2020 :: 7:34 am, Hi Josh: From Josh Kirschner on August 25, 2020 :: 3:43 pm. Over the last few years, mesh networks have become probably the most popular way to make sure your entire home is blanketed with fast, reliable WiFi. An xFi Pod works with our xFi Gateway to extend your WiFi network, and help eliminate deadspots for more consistent coverage to keep you seamlessly connected throughout your home. Techlicious participates in affiliate programs, including the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, which provide a small commission from some, but not all, of the "click-thru to buy" links contained in our articles. Also, when xFi Pods are first put in place, Xfinity locks your Gateway to only show a unified band SSID and password. I have an Xfinity Gateway with 3 XFi extenders. Intelligent “band steering” and “beamforming” technology then directs the traffic, so your gear connects to the most appropriate frequency and node. As before, these pods will only work with your network if you’re using the Xfinity Gateway, a combo router and wireless access point the company rents to customers. I plugged two of the pods into different outlets on the inside of the same wall facing the backyard, and the third pod into an exterior outlet on the same wall (under a covered deck). Now enhanced for better performance and 2x faster speeds than our last generation. That is the implicitly assurance that Comcast’s own xFi Pods are giving. Stand alone modems that are certified to work with Xfinity internet and voice services (which there are only 2) only have one ethernet port which malfunctions a lot and wifi disconnects a lot too. In addition to streamlining the setup process, the app allows you to set parental controls, change your password and get alerts when a new device connects.

How does this help xfinity over other services?

Most Wi-Fi meshes come in packs of three nodes and the xFi Pods are no different.
If you don’t put it in bridge mode what problems will it cause? We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read. On the bright side, the devices use the router built into the Xfinity Gateway and run with the same xFi app you’ve probably already installed on … You’ll need an xFi Gateway too, of course, which Comcast offers for $14 per month; that comes with the company’s xFi Advanced Security bundled. All of that is done to increase overall system efficiency and make the most robust and fastest possible connection at any given moment. You could just get the Nest router and use your existing Google Wifi hubs, since they’re compatible with each other, to see how that goes. Here are the best deals already announced, The best Black Friday 2020 deals available now and coming soon, Discuss: Comcast gets into mesh Wi-Fi with xFi pods, announced the Pods last year along with the launch of its xFi platform, regarded as short on features and customization options. Like a new car that loses value the moment you drive it off the dealer’s lot, a mesh net starts decreasing the available signal strength as soon as you move a few feet from the Gateway and connected router. From Josh Kirschner on August 28, 2020 :: 3:32 pm, You will always need a cable modem in your system. Comcast is upgrading its Xfinity mesh network system, with the second-generation xFi Pod promising more speed and wider WiFi coverage. The Netgear EX8000 can be used as a mesh system, so one option (and the cheapest) is to get another one and link them up in mesh mode. After ensuring you’ve optimized your WiFi network, it’s time to get a WiFi extender, which, as its name suggests, extends the reach of your Xfinity WiFi network to all corners of your home. Comcast offers a mesh network solution that is custom-designed to work with Xfinity WiFi routers, called xFi Pods (a three-pack is $119). With nest the router can be used as a router or beacon wirelessly or hardwired. On the bright side, the devices use the router built into the Xfinity Gateway and run with the same xFi app you’ve probably already installed on a smartphone or tablet to monitor bandwidth use, set parental restrictions and check on your Xfinity Home security system. You can also prioritize devices, so you can ensure your living room TV will get flawless 4K streaming. They’re only $79 bucks and would provide the same performance as a Beacon. Once just a feature in offices and more sophisticated environments, home networks have become just as complicated to require their assistance. Demand has doubled since March 2020, according to the carrier. To learn more or opt-out, read our Cookie Policy. However, the top tier of service for Xfinity customers is Gigabit Pro, which delivers up to 2Gbps. Mesh WiFi systems operate at two bands or different sets of frequencies. Can I use the eero devices as the extender only? Xfinity has instructions on how to do that here: That is why Comcast has just launched their own xFi Pods mesh system so that XFinity subscribers won’t have to look elsewhere or give anyone else their money. I have the xb7 and was concidering the new nest wifi. Wi-Fi meshes are now the hot thing in home networking.

For $119, you get three nodes though you can go all the way to six nodes for $199. From Richard on July 29, 2020 :: 12:47 pm. Nest WiFi tops several “best of 2020” reviewers lists, including being rated “Best overall” and “most well rounded” mesh WiFi system of 2020 by CNET,  earning an “Excellent” rating (4 out of 5 stars) by PCMag,  and scoring 4.5 (out of 5 stars) by TechRadar. At first they seemed fine but one pod constantly losses it’s signal. The new xFi Pod is a fairly straightforward upgrade, therefore.

Which extender would help me get decent wifi in the garage so that I can set up a bike and stream classes on our IPAD. If you were to mount it to the outside of your exterior wall, that might be able to do it for you. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. Not all mesh WiFi systems are created equal.
