    Awesome stuff. Similar to what ASUS is doing with AiMesh. Thanks for the in-depth review.

      That’s true. They do have a similar approach, which is a good thing. I like AiMesh too, more than traditional mesh WiFi systems.

    Excellent article! Question, if I wanted to get started with synologys mesh eco system, would you recommend I start with 1 RT2600ac and 1 mr2200 or just go with 2 mr2200? Lastly… Did you cover using the mr2200 with a wired backhaul? I want to make sure that works as I have cat6 already wired to each location and would prefer to use that. Thanks much!

      Thanks for appreciating my work. I did not have for testing two MR2200 units, only the RT2600ac+MR2200 combo. Pricewise, I think that two MR2200 units are cheaper.
      Also, I did not have enough time to make a wired backhaul for this review. However, I plan to ask Synology to send me the units one more time, sometime next month, exactly for this analysis. I know that it works, but I cannot tell you more.

    I would consider buying the MR2200 if it is possible to use the attached USB drive similar to a NAS with additional apps via the Synology Router Manager, i.e. as an iTunes server. I’ve read vague reference to this but no definitive descriptions / instruction. Can you find any information?

    Sorry but you´re a bit wrong. SRM it´s available in many languages, not only in English. I use it in Spanish everyday!!!
    And I also work with a 1Gbps Internet connection and tests give to me almost 100% of the bandwith.

      Hi Ismael. Is there a place where you switch the language and see all the available display languages? I couldn’t find it. Or maybe you bought a Spanish version, and the software was in Spanish out of the box?
