Conclusion on the devolo Magic 2 WiFi Multiroom Kit
The devolo Magic 2 WiFi Multiroom Kit is designed to connect a DLAN and a mesh WLAN for all those interested in improving network coverage in their own homes. This worked well in our test. Setting up or activating the mesh WLAN is very easy and was completed quickly. If you can’t get any further here, you should quickly find help in the structured and illustrated operating manual. We also liked the operation and configuration via the web console in the browser very much. All categories are divided and clearly arranged. Only the fact that the homepage of the devolo cockpit was occasionally empty and you had to restart the tool again irritated us a bit.
On the hardware side there is also nothing to criticize. The adapters look high quality, have a decent weight and have their own power socket. It’s just a pity that the third adapter of the bundle only transmits the network signal over the power line and has no WLAN antenna itself. Finally there is the price, with € 299.90 the set is no bargain. However, if you don’t have the option of equipping the entire house with network cables and depend on a good WLAN signal, the devolo Magic 2 WiFi Multiroom Kit could be a good way to upgrade your wireless network. A prerequisite, however, is that the wiring of the home electrical system is as up-to-date as possible. Old power lines can significantly impair performance via the powerline feature.
