I have a a long shaped house where there was always no wifi cover areas, now that I have three points in my mesh I have wifi throughout, its so simple to set up apart from when I changed my fibre provider I couldnt link google wifi to the new modem , but the google wifi support team were brilliant and soon got it back online. I also love how I can contol who is connected which is great when you have four teenagers in the house and see how much data their using so you can tell if their streaming moviies or doing their homework, the guest wifi is also great for visitors.
Need to be able to set different names for bands... I don't want my kids on the 5Ghz band, that's for my devices I use for streaming! Plus allow us to change the channel. Just because it detects channel 1 is good where it is, doesn't mean it is a good channel 50 ft from it where devices are
The Google WiFi is ultimately very basic. It gives you WiFi. That's it. However, it does a really good job of that! My overall network performance has dramatically improved since switching from a far more complicated professional router, and I'm not even using the multi-unit system. Internet and network tests are great and it gives you a lot of basic features a normal person can actually use. Networking for Dummies, or techies who are just tired of messing with stuff.
Overall I've had a positive experience. The setup was easy and the app is very handy for checking the internet and WiFi connection. The navigation of the app is a little difficult for me. I get confused/forget where I should go for what, the organisation seems a bit chaotic to me. For me there are two missing features that would make this 5 stars and that's the ability to not broadcast the SSID, I just don't want other people in my neighbourhood to see the broadcast. The second feature is to set priority on devices over other devices generally, not sure for the next 4 hours.
My wifi was horrible downstairs so I thought I'd give a mesh network a try. Google did not disappoint, I finally have internet all over my house. Buy the three. It's pretty sweet.
Does what it was designed for, but lacks a few features. I'd like to see a list of devices that are connected to a certain access point instead of selecting each device for more details. Also, it would be nice if you could move a device to another access point as some of my devices don't seem to connect to the nearest point. Other than that, it works and is easy to use.
