Or, to put it another way, what router specifications will best tell me about its MESH capabilities.

 

Thanks for your help

A mesh router? Orbi

 

Otherwise there isn't really a mesh router. 

A mesh extender just simply uses the same ssid as the router and allows a devices (pc/laptop/cell/etc) to roam based on a roaming protocol. A full mesh system uses a controller that runs the satellites. Mesh extenders don't have that option. 

 

If you're simply wanting a router to match with your extender, look at the performance of the extender and get "at least" the same performance from your router.
