It has been a while since we took a look at a network device here at ThinkComputers, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been advancements in this arena. Mesh wireless kits are quite popular, adding additional wireless signal in areas of homes where a traditional, single access point just doesn’t cut it. Cue 2020 and the increase in work-at-home needs due to COVID-19, and it makes perfect sense to take a look at a mesh wireless system. In this review we will be taking a look at the M3 Whole Home WiFi system from MeshForce. This kit features a primary base station, along with two additional WiFi extension units. With families needing improved wireless network coverage due to more devices on the network, and expanded usage locations, a mesh WiFi system might just be the device to help accomplish this.

The packaging for the MeshForce M3 Whole Home Mest WiFi system shows us a frontal image of the M3 WiFi point, as well as the two included M3 Dot points.
Around back we see an example home floor plan with the M3 products spaced out around the house for improved coverage. We also have some information regarding the various features of the system, as well as a recommendation chart that can be used to help choose the right system for your needs.
Included with the kit is a Quick Start Guide and help pamphlet, as well as a few other items. In addition to the documentation, we have a single, flat Ethernet cable for use with the main M3 unit, as well as it’s corresponding power supply.
