Many people and companies buy mesh WiFi systems to improve the WiFi coverage in homes and workplaces were providing reliable wireless networks is tough. This way, they can place one mesh WiFi hub in an area where they usually have problems, to improve their wireless network coverage. However, there are situations when even a mesh WiFi system cannot help. In that case, one great idea is to connect all your mesh WiFi hubs through Ethernet cables. Here's how it works when using an ASUS Lyra mesh WiFi system, and the benefits you get:
ASUS has launched three different mesh wireless systems, all of them named Lyra. They began with ASUS Lyra, then ASUS Lyra Trio and now they are launching the ASUS Lyra Mini. Except for the price and their looks, it is difficult to tell them apart and understand what is different between the three models. That's why we decided to make a detailed comparison which covers: their looks, hardware, wireless signal coverage, wireless performance, Ethernet connection speeds, security features, and price. There is a lot of ground to cover, so let's get started:
ASUS started the year with news of its AiMesh system, which allows existing users of ASUS routers to add other ASUS routers and create their own home-made mesh WiFi systems. If you want to improve the wireless network coverage and speed in large homes, buying a mesh whole-home WiFi system makes a lot of sense. But what if you did not have to, and you just bought another ASUS router to create a mesh WiFi? Do you still get real-life benefits in WiFi speed and coverage? To answer these questions, we created our own ASUS AiMesh system and compared it with a competing whole-home WiFi system.
