NETGEAR Debuts the World’s First Mesh WiFi System with Alexa Built-In Smart Speaker and Audio by Harman Kardon


Um, what? Which part of this qualifies as “World’s First”? :D

Mesh WiFi? Sonos has had that for 15 years. Alexa? Nope. Audio by HK? Samsung subsidiary now, hardly a big deal.

Mesh WiFi... Sonos has mesh wireless, but the only non-Sonos devices that can connect to it are Android devices, and only after they've installed the Sonos app and activated the very specific setting allowing them to connect to SonosNet. Not to mention that SonosNet definitely isn't built for high-speed, unlike some of Netgear's Orbi mesh WiFi systems. I would imagine this new product falls into that category.
