Small build to solve Wi-Fii coverage problems | Tenda MW3 to get started

Large apartment and villa users, Speaking of WiFi is just a bit of tears. A wireless router can't cover all rooms at all. Selecting a wireless relay or a power cat will cause network transmission rate attenuation problems.

Unless it is done in advance of the renovation of the wiring, the network cable will be drawn for each room, otherwise it will be difficult to achieve full-house Wi-Fi coverage in the later period. Tenda specifically designed the MW3 wireless router for villas and large-sized users, solve the WiFi coverage problem through mesh technology.

Wiring-free ad hoc network Tenda MW3 review introduction

Wireless mesh networking can effectively solve the problem of WiFi coverage for large apartment and villa users. No wiring, no complicated setup, automatic connection between devices, allowing users to easily complete deployment and setup.

Tenda MW3 adopts self-developed true mesh technology. Three MW3 sets can effectively cover 300m2, and two sets can cover 200m2. In addition, users do not need to worry about switching of devices. MW3 adopts IEEE 802.11v and IEEE 802.11r standards. Roaming agreement provides users with a smoother Internet experience.

Tenda MW3 uses the most popular IEEE 802.11ac wave 2 wireless technology, dual-band concurrent maximum wireless transmission rate of 1167Mbps (2.4GHz band 300Mbps + 5GHz frequency band 867Mbps).

While providing high-speed wireless network transmission, MU-MIMO technology allows more devices to send data at the same time, and many devices do not card. MW3 built-in intelligent QoS features, home video watching, playing games, video chat, download, etc. 3. The system will intelligently allocate bandwidth, do not interfere with each other, and bid farewell to network speed.

In addition, MW3 also has a 'wired backhaul' feature, which facilitates the use of a room that has already been wired.

The wireless router's face value is now getting higher and higher. The Tenda MW3 is no exception. The whole machine adopts a white cube design, elegant and generous, placed in the house like an ornament, and completely bid farewell to the inherent image of the router's silly big black.

And to replace the two 'big-bang' wireless antennas into a built-in, the MW3 has a unique aesthetic design on top, just like the hands of a master sculptor.

Extremely simple to set up to use mobile phone WiFi deployment

The installation of wireless routers used to be daunting. In this case, the mesh networking function was added. The installation and deployment were not complicated anymore. Wrong! It is simpler!

Tenda MW3 is very easy to install, plug and play, and it can be completed easily with the guidance of Tenda app! Now let's take a look at the installation process of Tenda MW3. First, plug in the power and insert the cable into the WAN port of Tenda MW3.

Set up MW3 Internet

Next we need to use the phone and connect to the WiFi called 'nova_XXX' (the WiFi name is at the bottom of the router). Then open the Tenda app and the app will guide the user through all the settings.

When using for the first time, the system will automatically detect the user's access to the Internet. PPPoE dial-up users need to enter the broadband account and password provided by the operator on the Internet settings page. Next, the user can set the WiFi name and password to complete the MW3 settings. , Connect the WiFi signal transmitted by MW3 again to the Internet.

Set up the second mw3 to join the network

After the main route is set up, you can find the 'Add nova' function in the 'Settings' in the lower right corner of the app homepage. Adding a device is very simple, the user puts a good position, and it is best to have no more than two rooms between the device and the device. The distance is not more than 10 meters. Then power on nova and scan the QR code on the bottom of the device to complete the network.

After the completion of the app home page

Open the Tenda app again, you can enter the control homepage of mw3. The upper part of the home page shows the current network real-time traffic situation, the middle is the link status of three MW3.

Green indicates that the network has the best signal. If there is a connection failure or failure, it will be displayed in red. Click on the three MW3s on the screen to view the information of each nova and set it.

The bottom part also shows that there are a few devices connected to the router. Click to view the specific information of the connected devices. For those who do not know, you can use one key to block them. The lower right corner of the setting interface shows the nova management interface. The user clicks the corresponding function. You can enter the settings.

Guest Network and Parental Control

The guest network and parental controls are two very useful features. Especially when relatives and friends come to visit in their homes, they can't wait for everyone to ask their WiFi password at home.

After setting up the guest network, you can avoid the trouble of dictating the password. You can also isolate the intranet and guest network to increase the security of the home network.

The parental control function can help parents to set the time for their children to access the Internet. At other times, children can't connect to the Internet even if they connect to the wifi. Help parents to cultivate their children's healthy surfing habits and create a green network space.

Intelligent QoS and fast roaming capabilities

After turning on the 'Smart QoS' function, the MW3 system will automatically allocate traffic for the user's Internet surfing behavior based on the upload and download bandwidth set by the user.

Make different Internet surfing behaviors at home get a reasonable traffic channel, no longer rob the speed phenomenon. Fast roaming function can help users quickly and seamlessly switch connecting nodes when surfing the Internet, allowing users to automatically switch from weaker signals during the move process. To a stronger signal.

When you are surfing the Internet at home, you no longer have to worry about frequent network switching due to frequent node switching.

Villa network PK Tenda MW3 wireless signal measurement

Villa users' WiFi coverage problem is very vexing. A router is uncertain, traditional wireless relay and power cat expansion will attenuate the speed, Tenda MW3 wireless mesh technology is undoubtedly more advantageous.

Then in actual use scenarios, can Tenda MW3 solve the problem of WiFi coverage? The signal is not enough. We will also use speedtest to test the actual upload and downlink rates. (Note: The test data is for reference only)

Test Methods:

We used the laptop to test the wireless coverage and signal strength and actual transmission capabilities of the Tenda MW3 in a three-storey villa of approximately 370m2 using professional wireless signal test software and speedtest.

And use a single wireless router (hereinafter referred to as T), and Tenda MW3 for comparison testing to see who can solve the villa network problems.

test environment:

Place the main route next to the television in the living room of the first floor and set it as point A. Point B is the test point, about 15 meters away from point A, and the kitchen; point C is the bedroom, about the same distance from point A is about 10 meters, and the wall is blocked .

Point D and point E are two bedrooms on the second floor. There is a pick-up point from Point A, which is about 25 meters away. Point F is a three-level bedroom with a wall and ceiling blocking away from point A. (Test network environment for the downlink 100M, uplink 4M home broadband environment)

Let's take a look at the test scores of the wireless router T:

Point B wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 64%


↑↑↑ download speed is 1.05MB/s

C point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 92%


↑↑↑Download speed is 9.6M/s

Point D wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 68%


↑↑↑ download speed is 1.05MB/s

E point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 68%


↑↑↑ download speed is 1.03MB/s

F point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 47%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed 0.1MB/s

After using the wirelessmon and speedtest tests, we can see that a single wireless router can not meet the needs of villa users. A layer of distance from the kitchen B, wireless signal strength is only 64%, wireless transmission speed is only 1.05MB / s, Almost impossible to browse the web.

C is closer to point A, the wireless signal strength is 92%, and the wireless transmission downlink speed is 9.6MB/s. The attenuation is not large. The two-deck bedroom D is similar to point E, and the wireless signal strength is 68%. , The downlink speeds are 1.05MB/s and 1.03MB/s, respectively. The WiFi experience is also very poor.

The third floor of the bedroom F, the signal is very poor and sometimes can not even properly connect A point WiFi, wireless signal strength of 47%, the downlink speed is only 0.1MB/s.

A single wireless router T does not completely cover the entire villa. Using Tenda MW3 to set the main route except Point A, set the node route to extend WiFi in rooms at points D and F respectively. What is the actual effect?

Point B wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 96%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed is 9.31MB/s

C point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 100%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed is 12.1MB/s

Point D wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 100%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed is 8.44MB/s

E point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 96%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed is 8.23MB/s

F point wireless signal strength:


↑↑↑ Wireless signal strength is 100%


↑↑↑ wireless download speed is 9.6MB/s

After using the same wirelessmon and speedtest tests, we can see that the Tenda MW3 has delivered the WiFi signal perfectly to every room in the villa. The layer B kitchen is farther away, the wireless signal strength is 96%, and the wireless transmission speed is down. 9.31MB/s, failed to block a single MW3 route.

Point C is closer to point A, the wireless signal strength is 100%, the downlink speed of wireless transmission is 12.1MB/s, and 100Mbps is near full speed. The two-deck bedroom D is similar to point E and uses MW3 nodes. After routing, the wireless signal strengths were 100% and 96% respectively, and the downlink speeds were 8.44MB/s and 8.23MB/s, respectively. The Layer 2 wireless transmission speed was also very good.

The third floor bedroom F, single wireless router can not be covered, after the MW3 second node routing expanded wireless signal strength is 100%, the downlink speed soared to 9.60MB/s. The test results have fully demonstrated that a set of MW3 can Perfect solution to the villa's WiFi network problem, not only signal online as fast.

Summary: Tenda MW3 gently solves home WiFi full coverage

The compact size, elegant shape, top-like sculptural design, and the Tenda MW3 met for the first time, I believe it can capture the user's heart. In addition to outstanding design, MW3's network is easy to use, white users It's easy to get started.

At the same time, the router also has practical functions such as guest network, intelligent QoS, and parental control, so that the WiFi experience of the home users can be upgraded to a higher level.
