Upgrading from TP-Link AX1500

    I have Sky SIRO, and use a TP-Link AX1500 (based on on post elsewhere here I was able to ditch the POS Sky device), but I've been running into issues and think I need a better device.

    I have 40+ devices on my network, with about 35 of them on Wi-Fi (not all on together, but generally the majority would, even if not in active use)

    We've been finding the Wi-Fi speeds slow, and some devices are suffering from frequent disconnects.

    Would it be worth moving to a higher spec TP-Link device, or is there a better option?

    If for WiFi reasons alone - better of with dedicated AP. Most of consumer "routers" support "up to" 32 WiFi clients, TP conveniently do not specify how much this particular model does

    Yeah, that must be it. Should have occurred to me - had a similar issue with with an ISP supplied unit a few years ago - ran into trouble once we went over 20 devices.

    I've ordered a compatible mesh device which will hopefully keep things going until I research with Prosumer device would suit me best.

    Aruba (HP) or Unify comes with respect.

    Then there are higher ends....
