Description

    Overview

    Google Wifi is a new kind of home Wi-Fi system that can improve your Wi-Fi experience by seamlessly connecting with your modem or gateway.

    Key Features

    Google Wifi is smart, automatically putting your devices on the clearest channel and fastest band, so you can do what you love without missing a beat.

    Google Wifi is modular—simply add more Wi-Fi points to extend coverage to the garage, patio, attic, or anywhere else. If you have a smaller home, start with a single point and add on if you need more coverage.

    Engineered for you, made by Google: It’s everything you love about Google—smarts, security and simplicity—brought to home Wi-Fi. Google have re-thought everything about routers to create a scalable Wi-Fi solution that's reliable, flexible and handles your devices and online activities, seamlessly.

    Use the Google Wifi companion app to see what’s connected, run a speedtest, quickly troubleshoot, set up a guest network, and more.

    Manage kids’ screen time by pausing Wi-Fi to their devices during bedtime, dinnertime, or whenever appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought the 3 pack after reading various reviews as WiFi in our two storey double brick house has been poor any distance from the router. Set up was a breeze, had all three units installed and updated in about 20 minutes through the app and we've had nothing but a 3 bar WiFi signal throughout the house since (well, for the five days since we bought it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Support your internet with a good wifi system If you have * Good internet (NBN?) or good internet available only in particular place of your house/apartment/property (eg you have 4G internet through a 4G router, use OpenSignal app to find best place to get reception) * And would like that spread across your house/apartment/property (within not so crazy distances) * Want devices to talk to each other wirelessly (eg computer to wifi printer) seamlessly * Want multiple devices (tested with upto 70) connected at once and still have a good internet experience across all of them Recommend the Google Wifi * Easy to setup * Good $ price * Easy to monitor * Better than Linksys Velop (have tested both)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised After looking at a new modem router and WiFi extender to give better coverage of our 2 story and long house, I was introduced to Google WiFi. I was skeptical but done some quick research and must say, this is brilliant! Definitely the way of the future, so easy to set up, works so much better than range extenders and keeps everything on the one network. I was even thinking I may have needed to buy an extra 4th module, however 3 works great and we have a 4 out of 5 bars at the lowest point in our house. speed, range is great and multiple users, no problem. Great investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Have FTTP NBN and am with TPG 100 Mbps plan. My previous supposedly enthusiast modem/router Netgear X8 R8500 ($700) was giving me 98 Mbps hardwired to my gaming PC but........30 - 38 Mbps over WiFi anywhere in my house....rubbish. Now I get over 80 - 90 Mbps anywhere with the 3 pack placed in key positions. Very happy with this Mesh Network and will never go back to any modem/router that claims to have a large coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for hassle free, long range WIFI I have currently used this product for over a month now and it has completely eliminated any network issues I previously had. When researching this product and many others like it I was initially concerned that the nodes would not have a strong signal to each other in my house as reviews online suggested each node wasn't as powerful as other similar solutions. This would have been an issue as my internet enters my home upstairs. Therefore the upstairs node would have to penetrate a wall and a thick concrete slab to reach the next node downstairs. Despite this, the low price (in comparison to other competing solutions) was to tempting and I took the dive. To my surprise even with only one node installed my entire double story house received almost full WiFi coverage with only the furthest edges of my house receiving one bar. After installing all three however I now have consistent 3 bar coverage everywhere in my home. Setup was extremely easy and took minutes. The Iphone app is super easy to use and for the average consumer contains all the necessary features plus a few extras. All nodes report that they have a strong connection to each other and walking around the house is seamless with no dropout as a device switches from one node to the other. The external network monitoring works flawlessly and in use I was able to restart the network to solve an issue for my parents in Townsville while I was in Sydney. (Note this issue was not due to google WiFi.) In my opinion this device is perfect for people who either do not have the knowledge /time to set up standalone access points that are hardwired into their network. Or people who cannot run Ethernet cables to standalone access points through their house such as in my case due to my house not being fitted with Ethernet. (Note however if you can run Ethernet to each node you can also run google WiFi in a wired configuration) Keep in mind you will need a modem either from your ISP/NBN (FTTP), or you can plug google WiFi into your exiting WiFi router if it has a built in modem and turn your old routers WiFi off so that only your google WiFi network appears. I had to do this and it required no extra steps on my old router, I just plugged it in and the app setup did the rest)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WiFi problem solved in 20 minutes I have a large house and had no end of wifi problems. Extenders were unreliable with weak coverage and constant drop out. I bought the Google 3 pack and was amazed how easy it was to set up. I now get up to 90mbs throughout the whole house plus backyard with zero drop out. The app is fantastic and good fun to tinker with too. This is a first class pruduct for reasonable cost.
