I switched from the Apple Airport Extreme to Google Wifi and do I ever wish I had switched sooner. I actually get the speed I pay for, there are no dead zones in my house and it is easy to setup and manage. And now that I can install Google Play apps on my Chromebook, I can manage my network anywhere! 👍
Seriously? IPv6 is more important then bridging with mesh? The percentage of IPv6 users is so much smaller than people who want to integrate google WiFi with their existing network infrastructure. Priority much?
The ability to hard wire remote access point sold me. While I am still getting used to not having a browser interface from my PC this app is working great and I have no complaints.
(Nearly) painlessly solved my Wi-Fi issues. The Good: Very easy to set up. Essentially plug and play. Accepts wired gigabit connection to router, and between access points. Allows custom DNS resolvers. Use your ISPs, Google's, one on your network, or whatever one you want. Does port forwarding. Does DNS reservation. The Not So Good: Requires internet. You can't set it up without internet access, and it's not clear to me right now if my modem went out if I would still be able to access resources inside my network. No web config. You can only use the app to configure the system. Configurable from WAN. You can change your network from the internet. This has never been a good idea, and there doesn't seem to be a way to prevent this. Upnp turned on by default. You can shut it off, but it really should just be off unless you know you need it. Only 2 wired ports (actually only 1, since you'll probably already be using one to wire it directly. You will need a switch if you use wired devices. Overall, this is a good value in my humble opinion. I've tried Power line devices, ddwrt repeaters, and several WiFi routers, all with spotty results. This system has been rock solid for several weeks.
does not work on galaxy s8. can't find devices
Mesh in bridge mode please..
IPv6: Enable IPv6 on your Google Wifi.
Wi-Fi Pause: We’ll alert you if you’re about to pause your own device.
