I spent over $300 on the mesh Wi-Fi system I use in my apartment. It’s great and it supports lightning-fast data speeds, but it’s also a total waste of money. My home internet only goes up to 200 Mbps and I definitely don’t need all the coverage that a mesh system provides. Instead of getting this system, I should have picked up a TP-Link WR841N Wireless Wi-Fi Router. It has high-power antennas that provide more than enough coverage for most apartments, and it has data speeds up to 300 Mbps. All that for only $18!
