If you’re looking to improve your home Wi-Fi situation, the best thing you can do is invest in a mesh router. Mesh router systems make it easy to cover all corners of your home with a strong Wi-Fi signal and are easily expandable depending on how much square footage you have. Fortunately, a number of the best mesh router systems on the market are heavily discounted for Cyber Monday, so you can save quite a bit on one right now

If you have a basic home internet plan of 300Mbps or less, you can do fine with a Wi-Fi 5 based system, such as the entry-level Eero or Google’s Nest Wifi. If you have faster internet at home, up to a gigabit connection, you might want to invest in a Wi-Fi 6 system.

Looking for more Cyber Monday deals? Be sure to check out our continuously updated roundup of all the best sales.

Eero deals

Amazon-owned Eero is discounting both its entry-level Wi-Fi 5 systems and the brand-new Wi-Fi 6 models. The base Eero mesh system can be purchased in one-, two-, or three-pack setups, with discounts ranging from $20 to $75 off, depending on which set you choose. A three-pack is designed to cover up to 5,000 square feet and is ideal for up to 300Mbps internet service.

Bulk up your internet connection at home with a three-pack of this popular mesh Wi-Fi system.

If you are interested in the new Wi-Fi 6 Eero 6 system, you can get the base model in one-, two-, or three-packs starting at $103. The three-pack covers up to 5,000 square feet and is good for up to 500Mbps internet service, according to the company.

$159

The Eero 6 mesh router system covers up to 5,000 square feet and is good for internet speeds up to 500Mbps; it also supports Zigbee for connecting smart home devices.

For the most speed, you’ll want to pony up for the Eero 6 Pro, which can also be purchased in one-, two-, or three-packs. Eero says the Pro system is designed for those with gigabit internet service, with a three-pack covering up to 6,000 square feet. It adds a third Wi-Fi band to speed up communication between the nodes and provides faster connections to your devices.

$319

The Eero 6 Pro mesh router is designed to fill up to 3,500 square foot homes with fast (up to one gigabit) internet connections. It supports the Wi-Fi 6 protocol as well as Zigbee connections for smart home devices.

Nest Wifi deals

Google’s Nest Wifi is a dual-band Wi-Fi 5 based system. It’s faster than the base Eero system but won’t quite keep up with the best Wi-Fi 6 systems on the market. It’s a good in-between option, however, providing easy setup, reliable connections, and fast speeds up to 500Mbps. A two-pack is the popular option and covers up to 4,400 square feet.

Netgear mesh router deals

Like Eero, Netgear has a wide range of mesh router systems, with all the newest ones supporting Wi-Fi 6. The dual-band Nighthawk system is the entry-level option, with support for up to 25 devices, coverage up to 3,000 square feet, and internet speeds up to 400Mbps.

$169

The Netgear Nighthawk is a Wi-Fi 6 mesh router system designed for internet speeds up to 400Mbps.

The Orbi line is Netgear’s flagship mesh system and is designed for larger homes, more connected devices, and up to gigabit internet speeds. The Orbi models are tri-band, much like the Eero 6 Pro, and are the best options to get the fastest speeds you can.

California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes the state’s “BitLicense” law.

The bill, called the Digital Financial Assets Law, would establish a regulatory framework for companies that transact with cryptocurrency in the state, similar to New York’s BitLicense system. In a statement, Newsom says it’s “premature to lock a licensing structure” and that implementing such a program is a “costly undertaking:”

A more flexible approach is needed to ensure regulatory oversight can keep up with rapidly evolving technology and use cases, and is tailored with the proper tools to address trends and mitigate consumer harm.

Get ready for some Netflix news.

At 1PM ET today Netflix is streaming its second annual Tudum event, where you can expect to hear news about and see trailers from its biggest franchises, including The Witcher and Bridgerton. I’ll be covering the event live alongside my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore, and you can also watch along at the link below. There will be lots of expected names during the stream, but I have my fingers crossed for a new season of Hemlock Grove.

Looking for something to do this weekend?

Why not hang out on the couch playing video games and watching TV. It’s a good time for it, with intriguing recent releases like Return to Monkey Island, Session: Skate Sim, and the Star Wars spinoff Andor. Or you could check out some of the new anime on Netflix, including Thermae Romae Novae (pictured below), which is my personal favorite time-traveling story about bathing.

If you’re using crash detection on the iPhone 14, invest in a really good phone mount.

Motorcycle owner Douglas Sonders has a cautionary tale in Jalopnik today about the iPhone 14’s new crash detection feature. He was riding his LiveWire One motorcycle down the West Side Highway at about 60 mph when he hit a bump, causing his iPhone 14 Pro Max to fly off its handlebar mount. Soon after, his girlfriend and parents received text messages that he had been in a horrible accident, causing several hours of panic. The phone even called the police, all because it fell off the handlebars. All thanks to crash detection.

Riding a motorcycle is very dangerous, and the last thing anyone needs is to think their loved one was in a horrible crash when they weren’t. This is obviously an edge case, but it makes me wonder what other sort of false positives we see as more phones adopt this technology.

Ford is running out of its own Blue Oval badges.

Running out of semiconductors is one thing, but running out of your own iconic nameplates is just downright brutal. The Wall Street Journal reports badge and nameplate shortages are impacting the automaker's popular F-series pickup lineup, delaying deliveries and causing general chaos.

Some executives are even proposing a 3D printing workaround, but they didn’t feel like the substitutes would clear the bar. All in all, it's been a dreadful summer of supply chain setbacks for Ford, leading the company to reorganize its org chart to bring some sort of relief.
