Meshing Devices

These are devices that can run the MassMesh firmware. They provide access to the mesh via wifi access points as well as ethernet, while also meshing with nearby nodes automatically.

Recommended Devices

These are devices that are known to work well with our firmware.

Overview of Recommended Devices

TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 Exit / Relay No 2013 $99.99 $40
TP-Link TL-WDR3500 Exit / Relay No 2012 $44.99 $25

Work in Progress Devices

These are devices that currently don't work with the MassMesh firmware, but are currently being evaluated and worked on to add support. If you are looking to host a node, we do not recommend that you buy one of these, as it's not guaranteed that they will work well or even work at all in the mesh.

If you would like to assist with adding device support, check in with the tech team on the status of these devices and what you can do to help.

Xiaomi Mi Router 3 Home No ? $39.99

Point to Point

These are devices that provide direct links between 2 locations. They usually use directional antennas to allow long range links. These radios can augment a mesh node by bridging longer distances that are otherwise hard to bridge.
