Truth be told, we struggled a bit writing the following review. It has nothing to do with the new Magic 2 WiFi 6 Mesh Multiroom Kit being bad, as we pretty much found it the best option available on the market. We mainly struggled because we could have easily copy-pasted our review of the Magic 2 WiFi 6 Multiroom Kit, as this new bundle is very much the same as the latter. The new Mesh bundle, as its name may imply, focuses more on the Mesh functionalities, but other than that, there is not much more we can tell we haven’t stated before when looking at new Devolo products. The brand strives to be the best on the market, and it succeeds at doing this. That being said, we will be giving a short explanation of the functions of the new kit, and also why we found this an absolutely amazing product. For our original review of the Magic 2 WiFi 6 Multiroom Kit, you can click here to read it.

The new kit once again comes with three adapters, each having two Ethernet ports for LAN devices, while also supporting WiFi 6. This means that this kit covers all grounds by allowing you to hook up older devices to the adapters while also being able to enjoy the best wireless browsing experience possible. As this new package clearly has ‘Mesh’ in its name, it’s all about creating one big network for your home or office, making it so that you do not need to fill in a new access key for every access point. It’s actually even so that this then makes the entire zone one big access point, where your signal gets boosted thanks to the adapter you’re closest to. The seamless transitions are a delight, and after a while, you actually forget the Devolo devices are even there.

Every adapter in this kit comes with its own power outlet, making sure your wall plugs do not go to waste. You can simply plug in an adapter in your wall outlet, and then plug in any other device you wish to use. While the adapter will often still work when you plug it in a power strip, we have to recommend not doing this, as the device is not to be used in such a fashion. This is also clearly marked in the manual. We also suggest not plugging in a power strip into the adapter that has too many heavy appliances connected to it, as this may strain the adapter a bit more than is intended. That being said, you can basically plug in whatever you want, and you will hardly ever notice any decline in the quality of the kit’s output.

We have mentioned this already a dozen times in our repeater/router reviews, and we are going to do it for the umpteenth time here as well. The quality of your connection is still wholly dependent on the quality of your internet subscription. This kit will not make your base internet go faster than what your subscription or even your base router is capable of. You will not reach phenomenal speeds if you have a very low-cost internet subscription that barely allows you to stream an episode of your favorite show on Netflix. Keep that in mind if you’re just looking for a simple repeater or something to boost the signal strength in your home. The Magic 2 WiFi 6 Mesh Multiroom Kit is a premium-priced package, and it will only work best for people who have a fast internet connection/subscription.

Again, for our installation process, we actually did not have to use the dedicated Devolo app. We just connected the devices as shown in the instructions and we were literally good to go after a minute or two. The setup is very simple, even for people who are absolutely not tech-savvy. You just have to connect one of the adapters to your router, and the other two you can plug in wherever you like, and you’re good to go. There is absolutely no hassle involved, and this is a superb package that guarantees a minimum loss of data when using WiFi, or even when using the powerline functionalities.

Conclusion

Once again we were treated to the best solution on the market thanks to Devolo. If you’re looking to make sure your fast internet connection covers a very big area, with mesh capabilities and powerline functions, there is no better solution than the Magic 2 WiFi 6 Mesh Multiroom Kit. Be warned though, this package will not be used to its full potential when you have a budget-friendly internet subscription with limited download and upload speeds. Given the premium price of this kit, it will serve best as an investment for people who have a fast internet connection and actually use a lot of data, be it for streaming or gaming.
