The Best Mesh WiFi Routers For Your Vacation Rental

Your guests will rave over the easy connectivity and fast internet service.

WiFi has become a necessity in vacation rentals but getting signal into every nook and cranny is tough. Fortunately, mesh routers can solve that problem by creating a network of nodes in your rental. Here's why they're a must add.

While you'll need to check if a certain brand will work with your cable or FiOS modem, at this point most of them are platform-agnostic.

Many are also compatible with voice assistants, so if you've wired up your rental as a smart home, this will allow you to extend that virtual butler further.

Since they're always connected, and "reinforce" each other, the nodes automatically update themselves; once they're plugged in, you can use apps to check on them.
