I've been waiting for a deal on this since the last one (January 2020). It retails at £239. There are also reductions on standalone WiFi Routers and Points.

John Lewis have the same price but sold out. EBay Currys have it for £207. Other shops also (BT) have it for 199 but I don't think you can find it cheaper and Google have free delivery.

Did the same, got a router only from JL and it is getting delivered tomorrow
Bought this 2 weeks ago at £240. Never seen it in the sale before Very pleased with it though, good strong WiFi across the whole house and garden.
Does anyone know what is the max internet speed this would work for?

Thanks
John Lewis also reduced single router to 129

I think its 2 GBPS. FYI - old Google wifi is backward compatible and can also be used along with the new nest wifi router.
personally I'd get two routers instead. You get the full AC2200 then and also an ethernet port in and out. If you use the node it is 1200AC and no ethernet port. If you do that actually better getting the older ones!

Agreed, I’ve got three 1st gen ones and they’re pants
I'm planning on getting 2 routers, not sure I can get away with buying another right now. A single router gives me a signal strength of -65dbm on 2nd floor of my house ( built 2009)
How does thy is compare to the Amazon eero mesh? Both seem good?

I discounted them as they didn't seem to support pppoe. They look pretty good though
Hi @junitrules & @cantonbean - I've been looking into how to extend the Wi-Fi coverage in our house and into the garden, but I keep reading conflicting info on the best way to do it.

Is there a particular guide you guys have looked at that made you go with 2x routers instead of something like Google Nest.

My Virgin hub is in the living room downstairs at the front of the house, but I'm currently working from is the small back bedroom of the house on the floor above, so I am seeing a lot slower speeds here & I'd also like to extend the coverage into the back garden (as I think we'll be spending a lot of time out there this year).

Any help or suggestions would be hugely appreciated
I bought one the other week with JL, been testing it and having issues, but mainly due to my ISP.

I use Sky, and because you are not able to use bridge mode only, double natting is happening. For me, that is not much of a problem as I do not game.

However, the main problem I am having is that my internet on the Google Wifi/Nest Wifi, drops once or twice a day.

If I jump on the Sky router, via the LAN, the internet is still there, so it is the Google Devices.

A restart of the Sky router fixes the issue.

Google's tech support, requested I put the Sky router in bridge mode, which is not possible. I turned off the Firewall on the Sky Router and DHCP on the LAN, but the issue is still there.

I think unless you have virgin, or a similar setup, you will have issues.

Apart from that, it's quite nice

What do I need pppoe for? I know it’s a protocol. I have echo dots, sonos’, nest etc about but they don’t need it?

Routers are better spec'd but in reality unless you have the devices that support the extra antennae then a nest point is fine. The bonus of the nest router is the Ethernet ports (assuming you can use both on a remote one). There's lots of mesh Wi-Fi systems out though which some are best for coverage and some best for speed.

I searched reddit for nest and google Wi-Fi to see how people are using them

If you have bt fttc (infinity) then it will use pppoe. To get a good connection and remove double Nat it's preferred to use a separate modem and you bridge through to the nest router. On the router you put in your broadband username and password and the nest router handles Nat and dhcp

Ok so Virgin uses dynamic allocation so I wouldn’t need pppoe?

Is it Sky FTTC? If so, buy a VDSL modem and ditch your Sky router.

I’ve been running a VDSL modem with google WiFi since it was first released and it’s been great.

Yeah it does. So that would remove the need for pppoe?
If I have BT fibre (330mb but soon to upgrade to 1gb), should I keep the BT router and use with Nest or is there a better router?

Hi,

Good morning, thank you for replying.

Yes, it should be FTTC.

I did look at other modems, but some were mega expensive and also, not many support MER for authentication, what modem are you using out of curiosity and was it easy to authenticate?

Thanks very much,

Gabi.

I’m using a Netgear dm200-100eus which cost £35. Granted, this was in June 2017 mind you!

No idea what MER is, I simply put my providers login details into the auth section of the modem. I’ve used it with BT Infinity and Plusnet fibre.

For reference, I brought an eero pro earlier in the week. Sh#te in comparison to the TP link P9’s I currently have. I found it unstable and speeds were only what they should be in the room of the router

I have virgin 500mb/a package, I got maximum of 250. With my P9’s I get over 300 in each room of the house, the Eero didn’t even reach.

Interesting. Seems hit and miss with the Amazon reviews..
So with this I'd run my Virgin super hub 2 in modem only mode. Then I'd have to run a switch off the ethernet on the Nest to use all the devices I currently have cabled into the Virgin router?

Correct. Cheap switch would do make sure it's 10/100/1000 though
Any advice between this and a Tp-link deco M4 for £130?

If you have BT FTTP broadband, you dont need a modem or your exisiting BT router. You can directly connect the ethernet cable coming from the broadband box to any google home wifi or nest wifi router with following settings

PPPoE
username - bthomehub@btbroadband.com

Would this also apply to Virgin? As that is also FTTP.
