About this deal

You can even enable an option that allows the guest network password to be viewed from your smart display, and there’s a QR code option that allows guests to sign in quickly. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. As for the hardware itself, the Nest Wifi Router and Nest Wifi Point each feature a simplistic, inoffensive design that's built to blend into your home without needing to be hidden out of sight, where they won't perform as well. The Nest Wifi Router only comes in white, but the Nest Wifi Points come in your choice of three colors.

Automatic updates and an advanced security chip in the Nest Wifi router help your network stay safe. The app is clean and fairly simple, and it does a great job of walking you through a setup process that's easy to begin with. If you need access to functions like port forwarding or some such, you better go for a more traditional model from the likes of Linksys or Netgear. Like other mesh routers, you connect one Google Wifi device to your modem and then scatter the others throughout your home to spread a speedy Wi-Fi signal from room to room. This latter Speed Test result doesn’t line up with our experience using the router and Point, however, and 2.The Point doesn’t have an ethernet jack and is solely wireless, meaning you need at least one Nest Wifi router to use the Point. Three separate bands, including an all-new 6 GHz band, help reduce interference to provide faster connections for more devices.

While Google’s Point bundles come with a white model, Google wants its Points to blend into your decor, so it also offers pale blue or pale pink options. Still, I feel like adding Assistant might have encouraged folks to prominently display the router, which would lead to even better Wi-Fi since there would be potentially fewer obstructions this way. As for the rest, our fastest mesh system of all is the AX6000 version of Netgear Orbi, which rang in with an eye-popping average of 289Mbps throughout my entire home. Your Thread-enabled network will be faster, use less energy, and reach more places throughout and around your home. Note: Nest Wifi Pro (Wi-Fi 6E) can't be combined with Nest Wifi routers or points or Google Wifi points (Wi-Fi 5) in a mesh network.

Google recommends adding no more than five points to a single network for a total of six units (1 router + 5 points). In our own lab, we clocked the Google Wifi with top wireless transfer rates of 451Mbps at close range and 201Mbps at a distance of 75 feet.

Will I have better range and speed across the network or do the routers slow down when used as extenders?That brings us to Wi-Fi 6, and as you might have guessed, average speeds were pretty much higher across the board.

Nest Wifi Pro is built with Matter , the new universal standard that simplifies smart home compatibility. it's an extremely expensive option, and really only worth it for advanced users ready to take full advantage of its capabilities. You can play your favourite playlists, ask about the best shows on Netflix from the living room or control smart devices wherever you are in the home. This means you can continue using your Google Wifi routers alongside a Nest Wifi router or even add a Point to your existing Google Wifi setup.If you have multiple devices available for set-up, select the Nest Wifi point that you would like to set up. The Google Nest Wifi is a wireless mesh system and a follow-up to the original Google Wifi from 2016.
