WIFI extension options for Nighthawk M2 router.

We live in rural Queensland and use a Netgear Nighthawk M2 router for WIFI access 

 

We get poor cover coverage across the house and we would like to improve this?

 

We are considering two options:-

 

(1) Firstly, get an and plug it into the ethernet plug in the modem, or 

(2) Buy a Nighthawk MK63 Mesh system 

 

Any guidance would be appreciated

I'd would get a router or mesh system and connect to it. 

The reason why is the why on hotspots/cell spots is limiting in how far the wifi can broadcast. Its part of its broadcast regulation since they're designed to travel. 

If you get a router/mesh system, it doesn't have that restriction. Plus they tend to have more cpu/processing power and be more capable.

Who you suggest buying either a Orbi or Google nest system?

either. I haven't used any of the google products but I have the orbi's so that's all I can attest to. 

Dongknows has done some really good reviews on mesh systems and its worth taking a look at his site.
