Overview

Our take on the Google Wifi 3-Pack

Mesh routers make it easy to get speedy, powerful Wi-Fi coverage in just about any type of home. This package of three routers works great for a large property, whether it spreads out horizontally, or stacks levels vertically like a townhome.

Strong, fast mesh Wi-Fi for a large home

Mesh routers make it easy to get speedy, powerful Wi-Fi coverage in just about any type of home. This package of three routers works great for a large property, whether it spreads out horizontally, or stacks levels vertically like a townhome.

However your property is laid out, you can cover 3,000-4,500 square feet with these three inconspicuous modules. A speedy quad-core processor and beamforming technology in each one helps keep traffic moving quickly in a busy household.

Convenient app-based control

The free Google Wifi app helps you set up and control your mesh network from a mobile device. You can see which household devices are using the network at a glance, pause internet for the kids to make bedtime easier, and prioritize a specific device — like your big-screen TV — so content streams without glitching. It's a powerful tool, right in the palm of your hand.

Keep your data and your family safe

Built-in parental controls let you set up "time out" periods and limit access to specific websites, so you're in charge of when your kids are online, and where they go. Google also uses the tough WPA2-PSK security protocol to help keep your network secure.

So far, so good

John from Lake Ronkonkoma, NY on 1/8/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The system was easy to install and is working well with all of my devices. I'm getting good coverage throughout the house. My wife likes the way they look which makes placement out in the open easier. So far I've had no dropouts or anything to complain about. The mobile app is simple, informative and gives you some configuration options. I configured the name (SSID) and password the same as my old access point and all my devices connected immediately. My Sling TV and NAS (QNAP) are working fine as well. I also like the fact that you can find aftermarket mounts,etc. for on wall applications.

Pros: Look great, easy to setup, work well.

Cons:

Incredibly Reliable, Easy Setup

Crutchfield customer from Los Angeles, CA on 7/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently upgraded my ISP from AT&T to Spectrum/Time Warner. I also switched from traditional DirecTV to DirecTV Now. Suffice it say, I'm doing a lot more streaming. The Google Wi-Fi has worked remarkably well at ensuring all devices within my two bedroom apartment are streaming properly. The setup is easy to configure and the Google Wi-Fi app (needed to configure the three devices is very user-friendly. I highly recommend.

Features

Google WiFi: Google WiFi replaces your old router and works with your modem and ISP (Internet Service Provider) to create a mesh network and increase your home's WiFi coverage. Google WiFi works differently than a traditional router; traditional routers have limited range and when you add WiFi extenders you end up degrading your speed. Google WiFi works together with multiple access points, creating a "mesh network" to cover your home with a reliably strong, fast WiFi signal

Note: Google WiFi is a mesh router; you'll still need service from your ISP, as well as a modem. Google WiFi cannot be used as an extender for your current router. Google WiFi will replace your router with one or more Google WiFi points.

Mesh WiFi Network: Google WiFi creates a Mesh WiFi Network throughout your home. A mesh network is a group of routers that communicate wirelessly to each other to create a single WiFi network that provides a blanket of connectivity. This allows you to have multiple sources of powerful WiFi throughout your home, instead of just a single router. Since WiFi is broadcasted from each WiFi point (and not just a single router), Google WiFi is a connected system that provides better coverage over a wider space. The system is flexible and scalable, so if you have a larger home, connect as many points as needed to get better WiFi in every room. The WiFi points connect wirelessly, so you don't need to run Ethernet cables throughout your house making installation a lot simpler and faster.

Notes:
  • These coverage estimates are for homes with timber frames. Homes made of other materials may see different WiFi coverage.
  • Google WiFi points work best when they can see each other with a clear line of sight. Barriers like heavy furniture and walls made of thick concrete or brick can influence WiFi performance. With additional Wifi points, it'll be easier to strategically place them in a way that avoids obstructions.
  • Crowded WiFi areas like apartment buildings can result in crowded WiFi channels and reduced WiFi performance. In these environments, the closer you are to a WiFi point, the better your WiFi performance will be.

Network Assist: Network Assist technology ensures that Google WiFi always chooses the fastest route from your device to the internet. This means that you get faster WiFi speeds for things like streaming and gaming. Google WiFi's Network Assist takes care of things behind the scenes by always connecting you to fastest WiFi point, placing you on the least congested channel, and using the fasted band for your devices.

Simultaneous Dual-Band 802.11ac: The Google WiFi offers support for simultaneous dual-band (2.4GHz + 5GHz) WiFi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) for reliable and fast wireless networking speeds up to 1200Mbps.

Ethernet Jacks: The Google WiFi has two Ethernet (RJ-45) jacks - 1 WAN and 1 LAN. The primary Google WiFi router needs to be connected to your modem and ISP via its WAN Ethernet jack and Ethernet cable. Additional Google WiFi points do not require a hardwired Ethernet connection and can be linked via WiFi (although they can be connected to each other via Ethernet, if you prefer a hardwired connection). A network device that requires a hardwired connection can also be connected to the Google WiFi's LAN Ethernet jack.

Google WiFi App: The Google WiFi app (for Apple iOS 10.0+ and Android OS 4.0.3+) lets you set up and control Google WiFi right from your compatible smartphone or tablet. It puts you in control of your network by allowing you to easily share your WiFi password, see what devices are online, prioritize devices for better performance, or pause WiFi on kids' devices. The app also provides insights to help you get the most out of your Google WiFi Mesh network.

Family-Friendly Controls: Through the Google WiFi app, you can schedule a regular WiFi pause on your kids' devices, like at bedtime or dinnertime. Plus, you'll have the ability to block access to millions of explicit websites.

Cloud-Based Security: Industry-leading hardware and cloud-based security that automatically updates itself means you're always protected. Google WiFi has several built-in security measures to protect you online.

  • Firewall: Google WiFi's firewall creates a barrier between your WiFi network and the Internet, protecting your data from unsolicited connections or connection attempts. It's a stateful firewall, which keeps track of connections (TCP streams, UDP communication) traveling across it. Only data associated with a known active connection is allowed through the firewall.
  • WPA 2: Google WiFi supports WPA2, which is the latest and most popular WiFi encryption protocol. This makes sure that only people with the correct passphrase can join your wireless network. Google WiFi doesn't support older protocols like WPA and WEP because they have been deemed unsecure by the WiFi Alliance and industry experts. There are also known and documented attacks against WEP and WPA. WPS, a mechanism that lets a device join a wireless network without entering a password, is also not supported for security reasons.
  • Automatic Updates: Google WiFi receives automatic software updates to make sure you always have the latest security. These updates include open source components and go through several rigorous reviews.
  • TLS: All communication between Google WiFi and Google is secured by Transport Layer Security (TLS). This is a protocol that ensures privacy between a device and a server, making sure no one else sees or tampers with the message.
Note: Settings like UPnP and port forwarding allow devices to bypass the firewall and have an open connection, leaving them potentially vulnerable.

Mounting Placement, & Installation: The primary Google WiFi point needs to be connected to your modem with broadband internet connection via Ethernet and to a nearby electrical outlet using the included AC power adapter. Additional Google WiFi points can be connected via WiFi, but still will require a nearby electrical outlet using the included AC power adapter. As a general rule, WiFi points work best when they're no more than two rooms away from each other. Setup and configuration will be done through the Google WiFi app on your Apple iOS or Android OS device. If possible, place the Google WiFi in plain view like on a shelf or TV stand; it also helps to choose a central location at eye level.

System Requirements: Here is what you'll need to use Google WiFi -

  • Google WiFi mesh network router(s) with Google Account
  • Google WiFi app for Apple iOS 10.0+ or Android 4.0.3+
  • Mode and ISP (Internet Service Provider) w/ broadband internet connection
  • Ethernet cable for primary WiFi point
  • AC Power

AC Power: Each Google WiFi point comes with an AC power adapter and will require a nearby electrical outlet.
