Your simple home WiFi
Get seamless WiFi coverage throughout your home with Google’s Whole Home Wifi system. Designed to keep up with your increasing WiFi demands, you simply replace your router with a Google Wifi point and it will work with your modem and internet provider to give you fast, seamless signal for your whole home. The Google Whole Home Wifi System offers fantastic scalability for your home network by allowing additional Google Wifi points to be added for larger homes.

Stay in control with the App
Google Wifi is set up and controlled through the Google Wifi mobile app (available on iOS and android), which can be accessed wherever you are in the world. See what devices are connected to your WiFi network and manage existing connections in an instant. You can even set up parental controls; if it’s family time, dinnertime or lights out you can control when your children can access the internet. Share your WiFi network with friends and family using guest access or even prioritise devices to benefit from greater speeds.

Benefit from the best speeds
Network assist technology will be working in the background to deliver you the fastest internet speeds. It selects the best WiFi pathway so you will be benefitting from the fastest possible speeds whilst connected to your devices. If you have more than one Google Wifi point, Google Wifi will connect you to the closest point meaning you enjoy consistent speeds throughout your home.

Easy to set up
Simple to set up, you sign into the Google Wifi app through your Google account and the app will guide you through installation. Choose any Wifi point, plug it in and connect it to your modem, then wait for the light to go blue on your Google Wifi point. The app will then guide you step by step through installation once you have scanned the QR code on the base of your point. Setting up additional WiFi points is just as easy as the initial set up, for ultimate optimisation place each point about two rooms apart.

If you need additional units to further cut out the dead zones in your home, you can opt for another Single Pack or Double Pack

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, however performance issues The control app and setting up is very easy. I've had issues with the mesh connection to the second unit - in the same location as my phone which tests 'strong' wifi connection via the app. Features to group and pause devices are superb. On the whole pleased but not as impressed as I was hoping. Tech note: you cannot change the DHCP IP address range the router uses so you will need to renumber your network if you have static devices. Nice design of units, but have not noticed a large performance increase over my existing Virgin superhub router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day One so far so good Really easy to setup. Bit faffy getting Sonos connected but that is because Sonos is a pain sometimes. Speed over wireless is now about 25% better with a huge increase in coverage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement for an unreliable wireless network We just moved to a larger home, which led to my usual wifi strategies failing. Powerline solutions didn't work well due to having too many different circuits in the mains. Using multiple standard repeaters/range extenders was leading to odd behaviour which I suspect was extenders connecting to each other rather than the source router. My tech support role for the home network was becoming altogether too stressful! Having read around a little I opted to take the plunge with these units. There are 'mesh' competitors but I'm taking a bet that Google will have better longevity of support. Time will tell... Observations: - They aren't cheap. In the end I bought two twin packs, the amount of ddwrt-compatible kit I could have bought with the same money is quite scary! - The design of the units has been popular with the family, much nicer to look at than the usual kit, meaning they don't get pushed into the corner, meaning signal strength is better. - As others have noted, these are pretty locked-down in terms of what you can do. What seemed the most troubling was that the IP address range is fixed, so any static addresses had to be changed. Doing that on an Epson EcoTank printer is only for the brave of heart! - Setup, provided you have a compatible smartphone, is a doddle. My approach was to set up a 'competitor' wifi network (leaving my old, slightly broken one in place) and test that I had the units well placed relative to each other and was good coverage around the house. Having established that everything was working, I pulled the plug on all the old kit (except the modem) and changed the ssid and password on the Google units to match the now retired one. Everything DHCP jumped over without a hitch; phones & tablets, smart TVs, Sonos, laptops etc all just started working, and a lot better than they had before. As mentioned the static stuff was a bit more of a pain; in retrospect I should have got them all over to dynamic addresses on the old network before switching. To 'fix' those I just allowed them to be given dynamic addresses then used the Google app to assign them with the addresses (in the prescribed subnet) that I wanted. Of course you can do that with other routers (why hadn't I??) but somehow doing it on the Google ones felt easier and more solid, not sure why. Of course the true acid test is the family - and thus far I've had no issues to resolve nd everyone is very happy with the new network. Tech support just got a lot easier. My main lesson learned is: don't worry too much about the loss of micro-level control, just enjoy a solid and reliable wireless network...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great.Mesh Network I have had the google wifi mesh setup for about 2 weeks, fantastic coverage of my house, In a two story house I setup four of these units.I have fibre optic which was weaker in some parts of the house, after adding google wifi it now reaches alround the house-- no dead spots-- would recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a credible replacement for an existing router If you are starting a network from scratch and you have an Android phone, this is probably a good way to start off. If you have an existing network and you want to keep your LAN addresses as they are - forget it: there's no ability to change LAN address assignments and Google WiFi doesn't default to 192.168.1.x. Furthermore, these devices don't lend themselves to any form of configuration if there is no internet connection. You'll probably need another router/modem combination to get any diagnostics if there's connection trouble. Also, rather like the Google Home, the out of the box software needs updating before you try to do anything. So approach with a view of just getting a connection to update the software then factory reset before attempting proper configuration. I've boxed my Google WiFi back up while I think of what use it might be. I suspect that I'll end up buying a proper router and subnet a new wireless network on top for non-serious surfing and streaming - this is probably the best use case for Google WiFi.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am NOT pleased with the so called wide coverage of Google Wifi. Its coverage is limited to the boundary of my house, not as Maplin salesperson has claimed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Style over substance After having the Google Wi-Fi for 3 months I had to return it. This is a good example of style over substance. This is a great product for people with no networking knowledge and want to replace a modem or router with poor Wi-Fi signal. If you want to tinker and more advanced features this may not be for you. The quality of the product is top notch and the app is fantastic. But the signal between the units isn't as reliable as the competition and for use with an average 4 bedroom house I needed to buy a third unit to get reliable signal throughout the house. It's a bit of a slap in the face that in the UK they are sold in pairs whilst the US models are sold in threes. I mean even BT's offering comes with three for less cash! I was getting constant buffering and loading issues that I hadn't experienced before, even though the units were all placed in "great" signal receiving locations. The biggest negative though is the fact that with the Google Wi-Fi units you can only use 2 subnets and this cannot be changed. You can only use 192.168.86.x or 192.168.85.x subnets. Basic routers for the last 20 years have allowed users to change subnets. This is unforgivable for such a premium product. If you have BT TV then forget using Google Wi-Fi efficiently. You will have to run two different networks inside your home which becomes cumbersome and defeats the object. In the end the Google Wi-Fi units were returned and I bought BT Whole Home Wi-Fi. The BT units aren't as good looking and the app is nowhere near as polished or sophisticated but, I can manage the network with no issues. The 3 BT units have better signal strength between units (probably due to the more powerful 4x4 radios). Good effort Google but more of a Wi-Fi spot than router as you cannot route.

Can I transport this system around and install it in various different locations as required? I want to use it for boosting wireless video streaming services for Clients.

Asked by: Gmac
This would be possible but you would require to factory reset the unit and reconfigure to the client's network at every new location.
