Very good price and warranty!
Brilliant price...I was tracking it on Amazon (camel camel) for the three pack and that went down to £283. And triple at John Lewis is £259.
I bought the two pack from Amazon last year for £160 so might want to wait till prime day?

I bought 2 and wait for the prime day to see if there drop the price. It'll be within 30 days, so I could return to JL.
At least I've got them at this price.
Just bought 2. Hoping this helps get WiFi in our garden

Just posted a deal - 2 pack for £169- directly from Google store. Nit sure JL will price match but worth a try. If not you can always return and order from Google store

Would this extend my WiFi range? Thanks

Yes, but only if you have other Google Wifi units. It is not a standalone extender/repeater.

Whole point of the product.

Connect via ethernet to your router then pick up some other units and place accordingly around your house and you'll get pretty good speeds wherever you go in the house and maybe outside like your garden or driveway. Your devices will swap between each unit seamlessly so you'll have the best signal wherever you are.

Ah ok thanks. Bit too rich for my taste then if I would need several to make it work! Good for someone with an existing setup though I guess.

Good, but you'll need three as one on its own will be worse than a standard wireless router, and the throughput is not always what it could be. Great concept poorly supported, just got rid of mine.

Sometimes even 2 is enough. These mesh systems do cost a lot of money but then they are worth it if you want the coverage and speed simultaneously. A lot of people tend to use power line adaptors as it's much cheaper and uses the electrical wiring in your property.

That is a good read. Personally I think if a person runs a really long ethernet wire from the ISP router/modem to the Google Wifi base, you could feasibly get away with just two in a standard 3 bed room house. Google wifi isn't the best for speed/coverage but for style, and basic plug and play you'd have a hard time finding better.
Update - received mine last week. Bought two. Setting couldn't be more easier. Download the app and the wifi packs are pretty much plug and play.
One thing to remember is google wifi has one ethernet cable slot. One in from your router/modem and one out. I put my virgin hub to modem modem, so had to by a gigabyte switch to plug in all additional ethernet cables.
Constant wifi throughout the house (3 bed) and I even get decent signal strength in the garden too. All in all very happy.
Anyone had experience of using this with their NAS and setting external access, etc, etc? Not sure if the Google Wifi is too simplistic for this.

These are only really useful if you have a rubbish router to start with. BT Smart Hub has never failed me. I get full coverage everywhere, even right down at the bottom of the garden

I thought I was tech savvy but maybe not - when I needed better range I bought a cheap repeater off ebay for a tenner. What does this do that those don't? Genuine question, wanting to understand.

A very good price, though these are imported with US power adapters, so not quite as neat as the UK versions.

Except they don't work. I've had to hardwire mine in and they're still crap. Also have an issue with iOS devices.
This is absolutely useless, to buy by itself, a good router will do a better job. However, if you want the mesh, go for the lot from the beginning, you can get a better price and experience.

To put it simply, (and I'm not an expert), these form a mesh network. The more of them you have, the better your overall WiFi range/speed will be. But as fAr as all of your devices are concerned, they're all connected to the exact same network (all of the box thingies communicate amongst themselves). These box thingies automatically "steer" your device to the correct one (the one with best signal or range) without any intervention from yourself or the device having to find a better signal (like your phone having to switch from the router to a repeater).

They work seamlessly. So you connect all of your devices to this new network instead of using your router's WiFi or a secondary network of a repeater.

With a repeater thingy, you won't have as good a range, and your devices are not on the same network as such.

I have cat6 running throughout the house. The Virgin SH3 is running in modem mode. My router is a Netgear R8000, and I have 2 access points hardwired in to increase the WiFi coverage. Would I see much benefit in replacing this setup with a mesh system or should I stick to what I have?

Thanks in advance.

Hard wired is better than mesh.. stick with what you have unless your APs are not that good then I would still recommend a different AP to Google ...

Nice, thanks for that.

I am using the nighthawk ex7000 and have a TP-link router configured as an AP, but will be swapping it out for the Linksys wrt1900 running in AP mode too.

Currently have them set up using individual SSID’s, would I be better off keeping them on the same SSID but different channels?

It’s becoming a bit of a pain switching networks depending whether we are upstairs or downstairs!

Cheers

Most (not all) devices will roam to the strongest signal.. so I would recommend the same SSID, however if your AP supports multiple SSIDs then setting up a different one in addition can help to force specific devices, I needed to do this with my Roku as it liked to wander..

If you haven't bought the WRT I would recommend UniFi.. I used to have a WRT54G running DD-WRT many years ago, it was a good router but eventually died.. TP Link APs I have had unreliability issues with but they were only cheap APs

Excellent - thanks for the advice. I already have the Linksys as I was only lending it to someone who will be returning it soon. My media devices and my NAS are all hardwired into a 24 port switch so it’s only really mobiles, tablets and laptops which use wireless. Will probably look to set up a single SSID throughout the whole house one weekend. Cheers!

It wasn't clear from your comment whether you were referring to Google WiFi or mesh networks in general.

You'd be the first person I've seen say Google WiFi doesn't work.
