However, if you are considering, as I did, buying these devices to create a mesh network behind some other existing router (ie, you wish to run in these Synology units in Access Point mode), then THINK AGAIN:-
THE MR2200ac WILL NOT CREATE A MESH NETWORK WHEN OPERATING IN ACCESS POINT MODE.
I will return to this later.
The first thing you will notice when commissioning these units is that they are painfully slow to boot, and it typically takes several minutes from power-on to full operation. If you have multiple units, the initial process of pairing them is simply agonising. Pairing cannot begin until both units have reached an operating state - say 10 minutes from cold boot. The the main unit must then "find" its subsidiary unit, and then send it configuration information, all over wifi. This again takes a considerable time, during which the internet connection is unavailable, and the less patient user is likely to have given up long before the process is complete. I don't doubt that this is Synology being thorough, but I can't help feeling that much time might be saved if initial pairing could be completed using a wired connection between the units. However, the pairing process explicitly requires wifi connection only - wired connection can only be made once pairing has been completed, which strikes me as silly, as well as wildly unintuitive even if it is common practice.
I have already mentioned mesh networking. Remember that this device is advertised and sold as a mesh router, which to me seems to be only partly true. The main point of a mesh network is that on can have multiple router/access-points working together to provide seamless wifi coverage over an area that could not be covered by a single unit. The benefit of this to the user is that one can move around anywhere within the covered area, connecting invisibly and without interruption of communication to the unit providing the best signal at that particular moment. Switching between units should be instantaneous.
After I had installed my Synology units in addition to (and not as a replacement for) my existing DrayTek router, I found that there could be a hiatus in communications of several seconds, occasionally tens of seconds, in switching between units. It was only when I eventually queried this with the Synology support department I was told that mesh communications is only available when the master unit is operating in full router mode, otherwise it is explicitly disabled! I remain more than a little annoyed about this, as I found no indication of it before purchase, and nor does it seem a remotely reasonable limitation on so pricey a piece of kit. I am an enthusiastic user of other Synology NAS devices, and so I had no qualms in purchasing these devices. However, had I known of the mesh limitations I would most certainly not have done so.
I didn't want the WiFi from Synology, I only wanted it for the parental controls. When I finally got it hooked up between the Media hub and the Edgerouter it worked a treat. The fact that you can set on / off times for the internet for groups of devices, and limit the total internet time per day is just fantastic.
Yes - savvy kids could turn off WiFi on their phones and resort to a mobile data signal but we limit the Gb's per month on those so they run out very quickly.
I did have a speed issue to start with. I disabled traffic control (used to give priority bandwidth to devices that you choose) and since then it can manage 350Mbs connection I have just fine.
I think it's a great product.
