Soix, I assumed that's what you meant. I have an upgraded Node feeding a Pontus II and the mesh system really helped stabilze my streaming experience. My wifi signal is average at best. I really couldn't hear a difference in sound, but it is diffi... 
Best EXTERNAL DAC suggestions
Yes, I went from a wifi extender to Google Mesh and connected it as Soix described. Much more stable, no more audio dropouts.
