The design of the nodes is attractive and the setup process is pretty painless, when it works. Some will find the LED lighting intrusive, however that can be disabled making it a moot point. 

Meanwhile, performance on the 5GHz band is excellent, allowing seamless movement while maintaining internets speeds close to or on a par with a wired connection. A web based interface adds more advanced controls beyond those provided by the user-friendly smartphone app.

Setup via the smartphone app can be hit and miss, requiring reboots of individual nodes. Performance on the 2,4GHz band is disappointing and ensuring devices connect at 5GHz is not entirely straight forward. The design of the universal socket plate on the power adapters is also poor, with one of our adapters struggling to maintain connection and thus power to the node.

Overall, D-Link’s Covr kit is a mostly painless, pleasant and high-performing mesh networking solution. Setup, when it works, is simple and quick and the result is a reliable and fast home network, with a few provisos. Performance on the 5GHz band is excellent, but less so on 2.4GHz. The ability prioritise performance-sensitive devices for 5GHz connectivity would be a welcome addition.
