    This Google Product Ended My Wifi Problems.

    I have had this now for about 5 days and these devices have done exactly what they were advertised to do. My home is about 3700 SF and two stories. My modem is not centrally located in the house. In essence, I have one puck attached to the modem at one end of the house upstairs, one centrally located on the main floor and the third on the main floor as well and on the complete opposite end of the where the modem and first puck are located. Setup was a snap with the app. I actually tried to set the third puck at the extreme opposite end of the house and the app prompted me to move closer to puck 1. Only needed to move it about 8 feet closer and I was set. Coverage is phenomenal. My daughter can now roam the house without dropping our wifi signal. This setup is great and a great value. Upload and download speeds tested at 50Mbps and 56Mbps, respectively. I'm told this is not a very customizable system but I'm not one to delve in to the innards of this kind of equipment anyway.

    Google Wifi - 3-pack

    Having a bit of (outdated) IT experience, I purchased this expecting to have to do a fair amount of wrestling to get it connected to my Comcast modem/router. I found that if you know how to install an app on your cell phone and how to read very basic instructions, it is truly plug and play. There were no "network configuration" settings to mess with. The only wrinkle was they don't mention that you need to make sure your cell phone bluetooth is turned on for the setup app to work. Once the setup is completed you can turn it off again if you want. The result is high speed WiFi throughout a 2,500 square foot home with the Comcast router at one end of the house and the streaming video TV at the far end. As a side note, after installing the system, I had to temporarily relocate my desk-top PC (without wireless) to another room. I just plugged it into one of the remote Google units and it fired up with no questions asked. Refreshing.

    Amazing

    If you've set up any other Google device on your network, you will find that setting up your Wifi is only slightly more detailed. That is, I set my new router up from my phone (which I believe is how they prefer you do it). The app handles just about everything for you and walks you through the things you have to do. It Provides a painless set-up for a guest network and easily provides access for your guests, allows you to set family parameters (including pausing internet service for devices on a schedule or on demand) and prioritize service for individual devices (QOS) at will. It's pricey, but fun, cool looking and, if you currently have any issues with signal strength, network speed or connectivity, this will cure your ills. Also, the app let's you test everything, internet speed, mesh speed (how fast the Google hardware is talking to each other) and specific devices. PS - Don't know where the "LoveToShop1965" came from, but I can't get rid of it. - Verm

    New Router

    My internet is much faster than with my last router.

    Very pleased with performance, few minor issues

    This network was very easy to setup and there are helpful videos and articles online to help you along the way. I really liked how easy it was to setup the network as wired or mesh and the devices just knew what to do after I had them signed into my Google account. My home network is much more stable than it has been in the past with other routers daisy chained to extend the network. There are only 2 things that I don't like about this system. There is only one LAN port available at the main HUB and other competitors have multiple. This was easily resolved with a $25 Gigabit switch but it was an additional expense I did not want to have. The other is I can only adjust the setting through the app, not through the BIOS. If Google is going to continue limiting to app control then please expand to macOS, Windows, and iOS for iPad but I'd rather just logon to the router through my browser.

    Strong coverage in 3200 sq ft 1 story

    I just moved into a ranch style one story. I decided to upgrade everything related to wifi coverage and speed. I initially bought a TP-Link archer c7 wifi router which had great reviews and a Netgear CM700 cable modem. The cable modem and TP-Link were getting speeds as promised when close to the router, but I had corners of the house that were getting less than 5MBs (From 100+MBs nearby). I even had one corner where my sons PC sits that often was not even getting the signal. That was not going to work for me. I returned the TP-Link and order the google wifi system on a bigly online retailer (the biggest). I waited a week or two and still nothing in stock. Was surprised to see Wal-Mart had it. Ordered online and had it 2 days later. Google wifi works great in our house. Lowest speeds I get are around 50MBs even in my sons room. Incredibly easy to set up. While I think the google wifi routers look nice throughout the house, my wife does not agree and I have them all hiding. I wanted the TP-Link to work since it is much less expensive than this system, but I wasn't going to accept inferior speed to save $200.

    Not working as expected

    Replaced 2 others lost in home lightning strike. Have not been able to get online on an Android device with all 3 running at the same time (obtaining IP address loop) need to contact Google support will update if resolved.

    Google Wifi

    Easy setup and great coverage. Better than even anticipated

    Not ready for mainstream use

    The technology just isn't there yet, and the support from Google is really poor.

    Easy and great

    This system was very easy to set up.. and for once in my house I actually have a very strong wifi signal all over my house. I was lucky to get a signal much less any speed in my upstairs.. now, no issues and download measured at 97 Mbps at furthest point away
