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 Wow I have a 300m2 block in Caulfield. The house is 1930s double brick so wifi struggles to penetrate the walls. We have cable internet from Telstra. Prior to upgrading to Google wifi 3 pack the best speeds I could achieve right next to the router was 27mbs down and 5mbs up. The router is located right at the front of the house meaning by the time you get to the back of the house the most speed I could achieve was 4mbs. After plugging in the Google wifi and about 90 seconds of setup process I now get a solid 55mbs download and 5mbs upload through the entire house. I was sceptical before purchasing but am still amazed at the quality and consistency of the coverage. Wish I'd done it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, no more streaming issues I've tried a lot of different solutions to solve my streaming issues. Multiple routers, extenders, powerline connectors... No luck, still getting connection drop outs and freezing when streaming (internet and local content on my PC). The only thing that worked was an ethernet cable (I ran one inside the house to check) so my next step was to wire the house which would have been a pain. Luckily I came across wifi Mesh (chose Google for the price and the 3 included bases). This fixed my problems and was very easy to set-up. I did use the ethernet ports on the bases for my key devices which seems to be quicker than the wifi but I don't think it would have been necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WiFi like it should be From opening the box to complete setup was 15 minutes. Best WiFi router I have ever used. All you need is a modem for your Internet connection to the outside world (WAN), and off you go. You will quickly forget the price when you appreciate the engineering work behind-the-scenes. I am the unpaid head of IT in my household. I need quick, practical solutions that respond to an ever-increasingly complicated world and demands from everyone—like when friends drop in without any warning and want to stream live video to our TV from their smartphone cricket app which I never heard of before while ensuring my network security and family safety is not comprised. Google WiFi delivers. You won't regret buying it.

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 Has made my NBN reliable and fast I had no end of NBN issues with my telco provider. After many complaints, they agreed to send a technician out to look into the problem. He told me the telco supplied modem was of poor quality and recommended the Google WiFi Mesh to fix the problem by boosting the WiFi signal in my home. Installation was as quick and easy as promised, and I have not had a single problem with my NBN since installing this product. I am very happy with the product's functionality, but it also looks good compared to other products on the market designed to do similar things.The app to set it up and use it is also really good.

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 Great experience all around Bought this set to replace another dud Telstra modem (3rd dead in one year). Packaging is so nice and setting it up was well guided and easy via the app. I have NBN on cable (hfc) and I plugged one google unit directly into the NBN box. I didn’t have to do any complex setup, google did it all for me. I plugged my Xbox one into the Ethernet port and that works great too. My house is double brick and previous modems had weak signals to none in the back of the house. Now I have no dead spots and high speed everywhere. Expensive to buy but I am impressed and happy.

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)
