Last year I've bought and tried the M5, albeit with 3x units, and I was pretty happy with the MESH it created. Pretty consistent connectivity. A couple of weeks later, it was Prime Day and they had the last year's Prime Day deals, they've put a 3x Deco P7 kit on sale, for practically the same price as the M5 so I've returned the M5 for it.

The Deco P7 is - from my reading of the specs - practically the same hardware as far as the access points go (correct me if I am wrong), but the main difference is that the P7 comes with power-adapters that add PLC, i.e. powerline, that adds a hardline backbone that also meshes with the WiFi and seems to be working a tad better in a 3-story Townhome (just a tad, the M5 was already good).

Your case is different, but since your 2nd space is also attached, I am 100% sure the two access points will work better than the single one you have now, and the benefit with MESH systems is that you have seamless switching between APs so it is much easier than switching networks as it is the case with e extenders etc.

How does this compare to this Netgear Orbi Mini AC2200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi System [costco.com]

I bought this last week. The coverage and signal strength are amazing. However, my wifi keeps getting disconnected very often. I haven't called their support yet, but I am kind of disappointed to have this issue.

My nest doorbell struggles with a solid wifi connection. Would something like this help a lot for that?

Afaik yes for multiple M5, and I also think you can actually mix & match other tp link mesh products in.

Santa brought me a eero and now my WiFi double in strength (speed test prior and after install ..dsl speed) and my outside cameras work flawlessly now. Far end corner one to my garage always had weak signal. Now it's full signal. Super easy to install and so far so good.

I'm up to about 60 devices. 2 shield TVs, a steam link, 3 laptops, desktop, 5 echos, a bunch of smart switches/plugs everywhere.

Will a system like be good to replace my suffering archer c9?

I'd also be happy to set up another router but having trouble with the second router being slow

wall separating inlaw is concrete block.
brick and cinderblock will dull your wifi as much as metal.
whatever solution you pursue, you must get around there.
maybe if you mounted each unit at the far ends of the wall
that separates your two homes, or simply run a twisted pair
wire between your two homes leaving a wifi unit in each.

i would get a 1.8mhz cpu unit for so many devices,
at least an asus ac2900 which sale new at $160
and you can often find used on ebay for $110.

btw, it's a good idea with so many IOT devices
to setup a separate guest network for them, so
they can't potentially spy on unrelated devices.
asus firmware allows for 4+4 wifi ssid which i do;
family = full lan wan access
iot = other iot intranet vlan
vpn = no intranet vlan
guests = no intranet
(intranet means - seeing other devices on your lan)

Is there a benefit of buying a single tri band deco 9 to work as the central hub and then using two of the duel band m5s as satellites? My house isn't wired so no Ethernet backgaul option. Guess it boils down to does the third band, dedicated to just transferring data between decos, get used if only one of the two devices is tri band. I had looked all over and didn't see anything.

My total ally uninformed guess was that duel band connects to the tri band so the main hubs 2.4 and 5gh isn't getting stressed by the satanite communication, but the salalites still get stressed. Seems like it would be better though as the central hubs bandwidth is likely the most stressed in the network.
