I don't understand why you'd need 3 routers. Explain.
cause 5ghz has shit range and speeds drop off like 2 room away. So having a mesh makes your coverage more even and consistent.

The one I posted comes with a router and two extenders. Is this another case of you not reading, or am I really missing something?

marketing bullshit. Its not 3 routers. Its functionally the same as your router + 2 extenders, with the exception that it has one less band. The "router" devices do some "route optimization" using the third band as a backhaul rather than saturating the primary TX/RX channels.

The extenders are a little less efficient in their data management, thats all.

I see nothing about a backhaul band for any of them.

you gotta go the the website and dig into the tech specs. The one listed as "3 routers" rather that "1 router + 2 extenders" the primary difference is 3 channels on the former and 2 on the latter.
