The Best Wi-Fi Mesh Network Systems for 2020 (PC Magazine)What Is a Mesh Wi-Fi System?
Designed to blanket your home with wireless coverage, Wi-Fi systems are a hybrid of sorts, made up of several networking components. There's a main router that connects directly to your modem, and a series of satellite modules, or nodes, that you place throughout your house. They are all part of a single wireless network, and share the same SSID and password. Unlike range extenders, which communicate with the router via the 2.4GHz or 5GHz radio bands, most Wi-Fi system satellites use mesh technology to talk to the router and to each other.

I noticed that the tablet network icon only shows about 50% strength in the livingroom which isn't that far from the main router. Haven't tried any wireless devices in the yard yet. Wondering if worth looking into a mesh system???
