    Wired speed > wireless speed.
    Mesh Wi-Fi kits are quickly gaining traction as a way for people to eliminate spotty coverage in their home or office networks. They work by spreading the Wi-Fi signal out over a number of nodes, eliminating the need for a main router or hub. Despite multiple nodes, there's only one network to connect to, and your devices will seamlessly connect to whichever is providing the strongest signal. These nodes all communicate with each other to direct traffic in the most efficient manner possible, and you won't have to worry about your network failing at a single point.
    Delivering data to your devices is one thing, but getting it back to whichever node is connected to an outside access point (like your modem) is another thing entirely. This return is known as "backhaul," and it's an important aspect that shouldn't be overlooked when choosing a mesh system.
