Google wifi unboxed setup and reviewed with an explanation of what it is and the benefits of mesh wifi. If you want to extend fast internet to every corner of your home the google wifi is the best device to do it. Google really doesnt ask for much especially when you consider whats on offer. Most mesh systems of this sort can work with just one wi fi point but as individual routers go theyre not the fastest or most feature rich so would seldom be our first choice.
This means its priority is not to blast out the fastest wireless signal it can from a single location but to blanket an area with consistently high quality wifi by broadcasting it from multiple locations. Unlike most such mesh systems google is pushing the wifi as a standalone replacement for existing routers. Google wifis setup involves taking the three hubs out of the sophisticated apple like box. Google wifi will cost 299 329 au499 for a set of three units thats one primary wifi point the one you hook up to the modem or gateway and two secondary wifi points.
Google wifi is whats known as a mesh router system. Google wifis white cylindrical design however is fairly unremarkable and thats precisely the point. They all sport the same stylish industrial design and have a blue cylon like light at the front. You just need two things.
With a diameter of 41 inches and a height of 27 inches each google wifi unit is small and can be hidden on a shelf or a window sill. A quick internet search for wireless router returns a slew of angular black boxes with ugly antennas that might look okay in an office or basement but nowhere else. This is because unlike most routers theres no web based interface and the new wi fi system can only be set up and controlled via the new google wifi mobile application.
