The house has something great going for it-- there is wired ethernet everywhere. Because the house is wired, I would think I can do better using that wiring, than just using repeaters or even the Eero. My impression is that instead I'd get a more reliable and faster signal by getting a couple Wireless Access Points instead, which would be connected through the house wired ethernet, to the router (Pace 5268ac).
One possible system I've been thinking of is the TP-Link Deco M5, but put into Access Point mode, not into its standard mode. And, turning off the Pace's wifi so the TP-Link Deco m5 units can-- hopefully-- work out amongst themselves what strengths, channels, etc. are optimal.
Another possibility is just plugging in my old WNDR3700 as a WAP at the far end of the house, and leaving on the Pace's existing wifi for the area near it. However, presumably neither unit would be working to accommodate the signal strengths & channel choices of the other unit and I'd have to work that out myself (and networking is not my forte).
Anyway, I'm hoping to get some advice. Am I thinking along the right lines, and is the TP-Link Deco M5 a good choice? Am I right that the M5 units would coordinate in some way to optimize their channel and strength choices (much as an Eero or similar system does)?
Thank you for any tips!
