According to Jiang, Deco M5 automatically optimises WiFi connections for every device, and it comes equipped with TP-Link HomeCare, which allows consumers to customise their network security through powerful features that include robust parental controls.


He pointed out that Deco M5 utilises the firm’s Adaptive Routing Technology (ART) to ensure your network is always operating at top speeds, quickly identifying and selecting the fastest path for your devices to connect to the network.
