If your Wi-Fi is slow and laggy — and doesn’t cover every room in your home, we feel for you. Sometimes the router that came from the cable company just doesn't cut it. Especially if you have a two-story home. This is super frustrating, whether you're working from home or just watching / gaming / communicating from there. The thing is, there's a simple fix.
An eero mesh router, which eliminates dead zones, is the answer. And thanks to this year's Prime Day deals, you can get a great one for a whopping 35% off. This year's deals are even better than usual. Why? Because the retail industry has a glut of merchandise. And when stores want to move product, they drop prices. Luckily we're the ones who benefit!
This device's mesh tech adapts to your space, allowing you a full range of coverage no matter where you are in your home.
The Amazon Eero Pro 6 gives you up to 2,000 square feet of internet coverage, supporting WiFi speeds of up to a gigabit. This device also doubles as a Zigbee smart home hub, so you can connect and control compatible devices on your network with Alexa.
"The speed difference is transformative," said a five-star fan. "For example, the lag that used to be part of navigating apps on our TV and calling up shows/movies has simply vanished, even though the TV does not have WiFi 6."
WiFi 6 supports faster speeds and over 75 connected devices on one system (though you'd be hard pressed to reach that limit). If you need to expand your system, this unit is compatible with other eero hardware to support your needs as they evolve.
One happy customer reports: "What was initially a very good product has become a great product with robust and frequent software upgrades."
Another five-star fan put it to the test: "I ran a speed test near the new router and got the same approximate 200 Mbps, but when I went to the furthest spot on my back bedroom without a Beacon, I got about 150 Mbps. The improvement in performance is astounding, and I think it will be a life-changer for those of us with multiple kids at home with constant video calls. [Before,] I made sure that I wasn't watching any videos on my laptop while the kids were on their calls, because invariably, one of them would shout that their video was glitching. My network simply couldn't handle three devices using that much bandwidth. But now with the Pro 6 mesh's ability to handle more devices, plus the astounding extra coverage, my entire apartment is blanketed in blazing fast wifi."
What are you waiting for? Time to banish buffering for good.

Two fires threatening communities in central Newfoundland grew less than anticipated yesterday due to higher humidity and lighter than predicted winds, says Jeff Motty, Newfoundland and Labrador's forest protection supervisor.

A four-time Gold Cup & Saucer winner ended up in the hospital this weekend following a scary harness racing crash at Charlottetown's Red Shores Race Track & Casino. New Brunswick native Gilles Barrieau, driving Island Beach Boy, was thrown backwards while he was fending off a late challenge in the 12th race of Saturday's card. He was then run over by the horse that was right behind him. "[Island Beach Boy] was sent to the front, and as they reached the 3/4 pole near the end of the race, there wa
A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday: ENGLAND Striker Erling Haaland is set to make his Premier League debut for Manchester City at West Ham. City will be without defender Aymeric Laporte for the start of its league title defense. Laporte had knee surgery and could be sidelined for a month. West Ham's new signings aren't ready to debut. Striker Gianluca Scamacca isn't fit enough yet and defender Nayef Aguerd has a knee injury. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been co
When the fish were not biting, these fishermen believed it was because there were none to be caught. But this father decided to attach a camera to his hook to see if his sons' claims were correct. When he looked at the footage, he was surprised to see not only a bunch of fish, but that he nearly bonked one on the head when the camera hit the bottom. This father and his sons are fishing in a remote lake in Ontario, Canada. They have chosen a spot in front of a beaver lodge, usually a sure place to catch fish. But as the fish are reluctant to bite, it became difficult to believe that they were there. The camera shows that it was skill, not a lack of fish that made them go back to the cottage empty-handed. The bottom of a lake is a mysterious place and a camera on a string reveals that there is more going on than meets the eye. These fish were actually more curious about the camera than they were about the bait being presented. The lesson in this might be that persistence will pay off eventually and that they shouldn't give up, thinking that nothing lurks below.
The owners of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League are trying to reassure fans that they are "working hard" to keep the team in the Chaleur region.

"It is important for us, the Titan owners, to offer you our deepest apologies for the va

There are at least two millionaires in Toronto who don't know it yet. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) says no one has claimed a $55 million Lotto Max prize, adding the ticket was sold somewhere in Toronto.

That ticket was also sold in Toronto. Claimants have one year from the draw date to claim their prize. Pla
LONDON (AP) — Erik ten Hag pleaded for time after starting his Manchester United reign with a disappointing loss. Erling Haaland didn't need much time at all to show what kind of impact he will have at Manchester City. The two biggest offseason arrivals in Manchester had starkly different starts to the Premier League season on Sunday. Ten Hag looked grim-faced on the sideline as the Dutch coach watched United slump to a 2-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford, with his side being outplayed in the f

HAPPY CAMP, Calif. — A wildfire burning in a remote area just south of the Oregon border appears to have caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Klamath River fish, the Karuk Tribe said Saturday. The tribe said in a statement that the dead fish of all species were found Friday near Happy Camp, California, along the main stem of the Klamath River. Tribal fisheries biologists believe a flash flood caused by heavy rains over the burn area caused a massive debris flow that entered the river at or
