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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, reliable but doesn't play well with BT Parental Controls I've had this item since launch day and have mixed feelings about it. It is very reliable and is always available. Devices seem to stay connected throughout my whole home with 2 points. I found that I could not set up the second access point without first switching off and then removing the BT Parental Controls. Any attempt to remove the parental controls stopped the second device from working properly. The primary access point however worked fine with parental control enabled. Something to be aware of and might save lots of time trying to figure out what the problem is. Before I tried Google Wifi I also had the BT Whole Home system. Dare I say it - I preferred the BT Whole Home Wifi. It seemed to be faster, simpler to set up and worked well with my existing router so that I could still use functions such as the router built in VPN and time limit controls for the kids. The Google Wifi device has no VPN or parental controls, other than time scheduling certain devices. In essence, Google Wifi is a router and as such if you connect it to your existing router you might end up with issues with double nat. This can replace your existing router providing you still have a modem (for BT type lines) If you want simplicity then go for the Google Wifi. If you want to retain control of your settings and router functionality I would go with the BT Whole Home Wifi.

Does this collect all information and report back to Google servers. You have to accept Google can collect information before you can use an Android phone, so is this the same. Looks good otherwise.

You would need to check the Google terms of service for the item directly with Google.

Can this device be used as an access point to connect to a MiFi type device (I mean a MiFI device which uses 3G/4G to connect to the internet instead of an ADSL router)

Asked by: David
Unfortunately this would not be suitable for your requirements.

Is this compatible with Virgin Media fibre broadband?

Asked by: Itaylor49
This should work with any internet modem as this is only a replacement for the router. If you have a combined router and modem then you may need to put your existing router into modem only mode for this to connect properly.
