Tech News and Commentary

Dave and Chris discuss the Cybertruck recall, Google’s Ai photo tools free use extension, Ai and iOS 18, YouTube and connected TVs, Walmart’s self-driving forklifts, No Space, and more.

Steve in Kenosha, Wisconsin asked: “I live in a small apartment, about 1000 square feet. Do I really need a mesh router? I want one, but do I need one? I know you guys have talked about that they can cancel each other out if you have too many. How many is “too many”? I have two right now but I was thinking of getting a third and putting it in the living room. I’m not really having an issue with dropout or anything so I’m not sure I really need it.”

Steve, if youre not having any connection issues then, no not really. Youll just be spending money for no reason.

The point of mesh networks is to create a larger area of wireless coverage. You dont get a signal in a bedroom, so you add a device to repeat the signal and extend it into the bedroom.

If you already have good coverage everywhere theres no benefit to adding more nodes.

This is one of those if you need it you already know it situations. If you have no issues using your devices anywhere then youre all set, adding more wont benefit you in any way and they are not cheap devices.

Youd be better off saving the money or treating yourself to something else youd like instead, a single mesh router will buy a whole lot of gallons of ice cream!
