Our recommendations Basic home or business setups, with a small number of users.  Best used for large coverage, with a low concentration of users.  Most commonly bought access point, good range, medium concentration of users.  Used in office spaces with a high density of users.   Most up-to-date access point, with a high throughput. Often in smart homes or medium sized offices.  Extra level of security for secure usage, and used in high-density locations.  Low-profile access points, easy to install within a wall.  Also low-profile access points, easy to install within a wall.  Another low-profile access point, additional ethernet ports. Good for home/office use.  Exterior mesh access point - good for large coverage areas and outside use.  The mesh pro offers the same functionality as the standard mesh, but with higher throughput and 3 x 3 MiMo for faster use. 

A table-top AP that offers high performance and throughput speeds.

No need for ceiling or wall mounts with this one!

More simple requirements to 'extend' a wireless signal, with no need for more detailed configuration.
