I have an old Apple Airport Extreme base station that has served me well but it's about 8 years old and it tops out at 802.11n. I have a three story house ~2300 square feet and I have the Airport in the basement. I keep it down there because the kids have an Xbox one and PS4 in the basement. I speed tested around the house and I was getting around 10 Mbps (~1.26 MB/s) in most rooms except the kitchen and the master bedroom where I get half that. My service is TWC 300 Mbps. We are the typical digital family. 2 laptops, 5 iPhones, 2 iPads, Apple TV etc. I am intrigued by the thought but not the expense of a mesh network. But because I mostly get the same wifi signal around the house, I am wondering is I just purchased a modern dual band wifi router would I be OK. One issue I have is two of my kids have iPhone 7s and strangely these fall off the wifi every once and awhile.
