Google Nest WiFi Router £129 at John Lewis & Partners

My alarm system won't connect to Nest Wifi no matter what I do for some reason. The technicians said they have issues with Google Wifi as soon as I mentioned. Have to use ethernet to connect it.


I've got 4 of he original Google wifi's connected to a sky router. Been brilliant since day one. Some great features too.


Well in the end I've connected my TV wirelessly back to modem directly and no problems since then. Unfortunately in the new estates they put internet points on the 1st floor for some reason:)) Anyway thank you for your time and responses!


I assume it's connected wirelessly? Do you have the option to connect via an Ethernet cable or are you normal and have your router in the hallway like most? :D Depending on what kind of property you live in (they don't always play nice in older houses) you can purchase Network Powerline Adapters. This means you can plug one adapter in to the plug socket near your router and connect that via ethernet to your Google WiFi and then the other plug goes behind your TV with an Ethernet cable to the TV. It's just one option, but I realise it's not for everyone.


Well looks like it's just TV doesn't like this G product.

Can anyone confirm if this would work for the setup I'm trying to create below I have a 50m ethernet cable running from our main hub to a holiday let at the end of the garden. Does this create a wireless connection for the building next to it, or would I need to run another ethernet cable? I tried using an old sky hub to create the WiFi but it was getting confused between our personal WiFi and wanting a new connection

The problem is requirements for networking all over the place and those 24-port Gigabit switches are not cheap! I was using 10/100 until recently but they really do throttle the connection speeds on faster devices.


Do like I did. I have a 24 port Cisco switch behind the TV and will never want for a spare ethernet port again ever.


Good price, but everytime I buy a 5-port switch I inevitably kick myself later for not buying an 8-port.


can't you change your alert to include the word 'Nintendo' then?

Yup, I know what you mean. It sucks this one has failover but not load balance, my 3 mast has been down for a year


You mean I'm an idiot :) Just say yes, if that's what you think, I really don't care, in my time here I've spoken to many people who didn't know what they were talking about :)


I can understand they didn't seem to understand what your talking about.


This one doesn't load balance. I actually have three copper connections. Although fibre is only about half a mile away, they're never going to extend it up here, blame Mrs Thatcher for that, if you know anything about the history of fibre in this country. There are a few houses here, but no business. If there was a business there is a scheme. I got about 5 megs per line. I did talk to Draytec about a suitable router but the people I spoke didn't seem to understand what I was talking about. I think it's now Chinese owned anyway. So, i had three seperate networks! That worked. But it really wasn't enough. Not for today, not for the future. Fortunately there'd a Three mast fairly close, so I've lost one connection to 4G. It's quite fast up to 20 megabits download. I think I can push it further and finally say goodbye and good riddance to BTs (poo) service !

No worries. You can always turn it off again if you have any issues but I bet you won't. Its off by default for the people rocking 10 year old devices who just want stuff to work when switch on.


Thank you, Sir


I did. See previous comment. I had no issues and would recommend trying it.


I got some of these. Very flaky, sent them back and I rarely give up on tech.


Installed these couple weeks ago. Fantastic. I get cut off Call of Duty MW (old one) Online multiplayer on the desktop, which I have hard-wired to the Deco. Not sure if it's Deco or the game. It happens when connected via ethernet cable or WIFI. There's a setting called Fast Roaming IEEE 802.11r that is disabled by default. Do you guys recommend enabling it?

ASUS RT-AC86U Wi-Fi AC2900 (AI Mesh USB 3.0 Router, AiProtection by Trend Micro, AI Mesh, WTFast Game Accelerator Adaptive QoS, Dual-WAN 3G/4G Support)

to be honest havent dived into the logs but i suspect possibly a faulty second router, but the internet is plagued with reports of mesh dropouts, could be the luck of the draw/silicon inside who knows??


This might help https://www.snbforums.com/threads/ac86u-or-ac88u.44951/


How does this compare to ASUS RT-AC88U?


I can’t believe that so many people have/ had issues when my setup works flawlessly. Wonder what the difference is to good behaving setup compared to what you described. Also, have there been any visible issues in a form of log entries?


I second all of this, Mesh was a disaster for me using 2 ac68u's latest Asus firmware went back to 1 and zero issues. Even had issues with 1 in AP mode. 1 is best and also ill wait for a ax model to be cheaper.

No they work on any provider. Should get up to 220mb

Absolutely not. They just need to be within Wi-Fi coverage of one another which I’m sure will be fine around a 3-5 bedroom house in the U.K.!


I have the bigger version, not the mini and last seasons and they’re AWESOME! No connectivity issues. No drop in speed and greater coverage!! Yes, they’re worth the money at this price for the baby version!

It isn't a replacement as such, just a newer model at a cheaper price, hence the specs are slightly different.


Currys have now price matched this LINK.


thanks right now i have connected my nas DNS-320 (using ethernet) to Asus EePC , EePC is using the WiFi connection and I have bridged the WiFi connection and Assu EePC LAN connection to access NAS. Whenever i try to play videos from that NAS to my laptop or TV, there is lot of buffering. i am in process of building a better rig but that project had to pause due to recent global events, so right now exploring what is the next better option to improve access/playback speed from content on NAS


I've used three TP link AV500 wi fi powerlines for two years. My house is a 30 yr old 4 bed detached with the router located in the small bedroom upstairs used as an office. Specifically got powerlines to connect via ethernet cable to my TV and Amazon fire tv box. Hoped that the wi fi facility would boost wi fi speeds generally and eliminate a couple of poor reception areas. Most of the time things worked well but both cable and wi fi suffered from intermittent drop outs at inconvenient times. Sometimes i would test the wi fi speed and it was a meagre 1-2 Mbps. Lost count of the router reboots etc etc but eventually eliminated it and the internet provider as culprits, which only left the powerlines. Two weeks ago bought the 3 pack M5's and the improvement is dramatic. Wi fi is fast, stable and seamless. As for streaming, so far no problems with buffering and drop outs. I'm no longer getting ear ache from Mrs topazz. Only used two of the three discs so far - one upstairs next to the router and one downstairs in the lounge and use the disc's two ethernet connections to connect to the tv and firetv box. Wi fi coverage is great right to the corners of the house. The integrated anti virus software is a welcome bonus (2yrs free subscription) and the TP Link software supplied is informative and easy to use. If your requirements are relatively simple like mine then a mesh system is the way to go IMO.


I bought the M5 for my parents house and thought I would splash out with the Google WiFi for my own house. I was extremely disappointed with the Google WiFi. TP-Link have great software, that you can do a lot more with and get a lot more feedback from. The google WiFi done the simple things bad, mainly webfiltering profiles, blacklisting devices, and prioritising devices. It's like the app was thrown together in 5 mins. Don't be fooled by looks, TP-link all the way. I have sent the google stuff back and will buy the M9's.

Definitely old enough but clinging on at the moment!!


You may have noticed an increase in baldness if you have lived long enough...


I have not used my phone that way for YEARS!


Yes. The WS5200 uses AC1200, this router uses AC1900. Basically, it can output higher speeds so yes you'll see an improvement for sure (especially if you pay for a very fast line like 300Mb+) I moved from the Virgin Superhub 3.0 (which uses AC1200 I believe). I have a 500Mb line. My laptop upstairs went from 150Mb speeds to 320Mb. My Xbox One X (also upstairs) went from 110Mb to 220Mb. And lastly my smartphone (upstairs) went from 220Mb to 400Mb (also as far in my garden as possible I went from 90Mb to 200Mb on my phone). So a vast improvement from my experience but the superhub 3.0 probably isn't as bad as the WS5200.


Is this any better than the Huawei WS5200 purchased it back in April the Wifi signal is terrible!

I haven't experienced any issues with Chromecast but don't know about the Ring and have heard of similar issues (not necessarily related to AmpliFi) with devices not liking WiFi 5Ghz protocol. Have you tried creating an additional 2.4Ghz SSID on the device nearest to your Ring bell and connecting it to it. Give this a try and see if it helps. I don't think that the Unifi units would be any different in dealing with this as it is usually a problem with the client device rather than the network source. Also can you just confirm that you have the AmpliFi HD kit with one router and 2 mesh points or are you using 2 routers and are your devices all running the same (and the latest) firmware version?


I've had issues with my Chromecast devices connecting to one AmpliFi HD AP and my phone still being connected to another in the house and then not being able to pick up the Chromecast. My Ring Chime will also not work on the Amplifi HD mesh setup, apart from those two gripes I like it. Would have liked to have had the time/knowledge to setup multiple Unify AC UAC Lite points, maybe next time. Would the Unify Lite points deal with this issue better than the AmpliFi HD mesh or be just the same?


Looks like it unfortunately has but keep on checking Scan as they drop back to this price every now and then,

Yes 100% will help- around the whole house and across all three floors for me. I simply converted the virgin super hub (which is very very poor as a router) from a router to modem - instructions on how to do this can be found on virgin media webpage. I connected deco 1 to one of the ports on the virgin superhub via ethernet (note: all other ports will not work once superhub is in modem mode). Deco 2 gets autoconected to deco 1 ( which is now considered the main deco/router). And deco 3 gets autoconnected to deco 2. Deco 2 and 3 are only powered via mains. No other cables connected to them. Hope this helps. As i write this in the garden, i am getting 140mb....


Hi ,I got virgin last week-200mbs which is ok if your right next to the router,will these help distribute the 200mbs around the house ? Also did you have to get another router or did you run these straight from the virgin superhub 3 ?


Hi guys,I got virgin last week-200mbs which is ok if your right next to the router,will these help distribute the 200mbs around the house ?


More like 'dumb' Mesh Access points, they will still require a router first, but can be used to expand your current network rather than log on/off your current WiFi like most repeaters / extenders


Are these Mesh or like repeaters?

Update on update. It must have been listening. I was getting ready to pack it all away and it's now running steady at good speeds (skeptical) and WiFi over the house. I'll stick with it (for now).


Update. It's gone back to being really slow. I'm sending them back tomorrow. 👎


Had the MW6 and they went back. Devices were connected to the furthest node away, speed was poor and I had issues with Alexa devices. I have a house full of spots, shows and echos. They were all ok apart from the echo devices. Both kept disconnecting, became slow to respond and would cut out during Spotify playback. It’s a shame as phone WiFi signal seemed great around the house but it’s like devices were bounces around the boded with consequences! If I went to the garden with my work laptop, I had great signal strength but it would boot me out of my works secure system. Think I’m going to go for a really good router and see if that works instead.


Thanks. I tried that and it seems to work. Still not massively fast but better. It doesn't help that my Moto G7 Power notoriously has WiFi issues for that model but turning off the WiFi scanning helped.


I run them in Bridge mode. I'm going to try the total reset more in hope than anticipation.

I'd even recommend Bitdefender Free over AVG, Avast used to be good until AVG bought them and ruined it... Bitdefender Free has plugins for browsers too which is good


AVG is rubbish for free you could use Avira Anti Vir Free edition or even the built in security in Windows 10 is good these days

Mine just arrived and of course I rushed to try it out. My verdict is you'r right it is amazing. Why is it not generally known or am I completely out of the loop? Thanks again for finding this.


I'm a little confused by "This cable is only compatible with 20V Power Delivery chargers" that's int he description, yet earlier it says up to 65W


None, think of electricity like water, your device is the tap and the charger the pipe. If you only open the tap a little, you get a little water even if the pipe could carry much much more.


Power Delivery will also ensure devices are not overcharged and will only provide the necessary amount of juice needed.


Yes, amazing isn't it? I use similar (other brand) for my old Surface pro 4, using 61W and USB C cable.

Fair point! It might be worth mentioning that auto channel selection usually only occurs when all wireless clients are disconnected. At least that's my experience with enterprise grade WiFi, so it's a double edge sword. Sometimes worth rebooting it during a busy period to see what channel it picks up, but more than likely the hubs are just crap


Sorry I was being sarcastic there! but it obviously wasn't clear. I know the automatic selection should pick the least congested and cleanest channel, not that's always possible with so many wifi users,.. all my neighbours have BT home hubs and they all pick the same 1 or 2 channels, the most congested, I've even experimented and moved my channel and they follow the same channel as mine....their automatic channel selection is useless. My experience is that many devices cannot pick the best channel.


Ha ha sweaty nerd rage at its best. I used the word 'probably' to indicate that the comment is applicable to most individuals. Reading CoMpReHeNsIoN please. Just because products are sold doesn't mean they're adopted or well understood. You're reaction to my initial comment is hypocritical at best now that you're trying to claim that I have no interpersonal awareness, yet your initial reaction was to instantly react and claim I was being arrogant. Get back in your comms cabinet, you pedantic wasteman.


doing wonders for the stereotype of IT bods having no interpersonal awareness, carry on. all I wrote: "personally am holding out for wifi 6" what you wrote like a snotty twot, completely unbidden: "...I bet my bottom dollar that you're probably not utilising wifi5 routers to their full capabilities..." now you're moving goal posts: "...Most typical wifi users will not benefit from WiFi6" which itself is debatable given ax compatible devices, phone and laptops especially, have been being sold for a good while now (not to mention the unfortunate but now inevitable rise of IOT). instead of apologising for being a prat and/or having poor reading comprehension, you doubled down on the arrogance and added sprinkling of confabulation. there was a polite way to gab about or inform others on wifi6, if that's what you were in the mood for, challenging strangers you have no knowledge of, on their own buying criteria, is not that.


Not correct. Wireless channel selection is always based on the cleanest, least congested channel. You want this feature on by default. Manually channel selection is good in some specific scenarios but for office blocks / flats etc then auto channel selection is what you want by default. Still strange that they'd remove the static channel functionality though.
