Hi
Because we have Comcast, we have to use one of their approved routers. We are leaning toward the TP-Link Archer CR700 but also are interested in using a mesh system to ensure complete coverage over all 3 levels of our house. Can we use the TP-Link Archer router with a mesh system? What else would we need to purchase along with the router to make it a mesh system? Thanks.

Hello
I need some valid suggestion in selecting router. Since Nov. 2016, I am using TL-WR841N, which is working quite good but the only issue is coverage. It is not covering my entire flat( no idea about the area of the flat). So, now I would like to know is it a good choice to switch to NET GEAR wnr2000. ? and PLEASE guide me the practical experienced pros and cons of both routers..?

Yes and if you could afford the difference in cost I would recommend the Ac1750 over the N750 as you'll get better coverage and a better range of areas you're trying to use WiFi in.
