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 Signal drop outs I finally got NBN in my new house but every day at 4pm I found my signal would just drop in and out. It was incredibly annoying, but then I also found if I was on the Wifi and my partner was on, the internet would struggle to be giving us both signal and loading. I heard about the Google Wifi through a friend and decided to try one for myself. I bought a single one seeing as I only have a one bedroom apartment. So I got home and set it up (was so easy!) and played the waiting game. 4pm hit and there was no drop out. My partner got home and we were both on the internet and again, not drop outs or struggling to load. It had completely stabilised the signal and managed between the devices perfectly. So happy I bought it, would 100% recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is awesome! Great range and speed Been using this for a week now and it is epic. I didn't realise how bad my WiFi was upstairs. All my WiFi devices work so much more reliably. Chromecast and Google home especially. I no longer need use 4g at home. Quick side note, I only have one and it is ethernet connected so I can't comment on the WiFi extension features or multiple device set up. I also don't use any of the family or guest options. I can say that I get better speed downstairs from this than my AC router in the next room. It's so fast I can steam games from my Pc to my phone/TV lag free. Set up was easy the only blip was when i had to forget and reconnect the network on my phone. Everything else connected straight away using the same name and pass as my router. The app is cool and it's handy to see what is connected and test speeds. It is expensive for just a repeater though. Probably better value if you use the other features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well i bought this to try and improve my wifi coverage in my house and out onto the deck and shed for casting music. as a single unit i didn't find it any better than the wifi router my isp provided to me. i bought a second one so i could use it as a mesh system that its designed for. once i meshed it, it has been outstanding. i can listen to music in my shed and in the garden now and all my home automation gear works well as the google wifi is designed for lots of traffic. i like the part where i can prioritise my foxtel box for an hour or so while a show is streaming so other users don't take all the internet, and if you have kids, you can set schedules for internet time or just cut them off if they are playing up. in hindsight, unless you have a 15 square house or smaller, i would buy the 3 pack as this is where google shines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new family recommendation for reliable Wifi Wifi done well. Easily my new recommendation for family or friends who are sick of their wifi dropping out or being slow. A little pricier than normal, but it's not garbage. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money My internet since buying this device is about 5 times faster and I get signal throughout the house. Extremely easy set up too. just remember to turn your router WiFi off to get the best signal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home wifi mesh is the way to go With the poor performance from most ISP supplied modem/routers, a reasonable size home will struggle with bandwidth and the number of wifi connected devices. I found the answer with a mesh network. There are lots to choose from but I went with Google and I can tell you it is so easy to install and manage with the app. Now I don't see issues with slow downloads in the home.
