Google mesh Wi-Fi network aims to address various Wi-Fi problems that we encounter in our modern day life. It was designed to solve unreliable connection so you don’t need to move to different room to get a better signal. The system uses a series of interconnected nodes to provide seamless coverage with no dead zones. It allows you to add as many extra nodes as you need to provide full coverage.
Google Wi-Fi’s design is very similar with Google Home and looks like a stealth bomber than something that broadcasts Wi-Fi. The nodes have cylindrical body bisected by an LED ring that acts as the main status indicator for the device. It is small, unobtrusive, and blends in with most home or workplace décor.
Setting up the Google device is simple and painless; it will take you through each step with clear and easy-to-follow instructions. It takes approximately 15 minutes to set up the first node and about five minutes in adding each node. It does not require any maintenance as it is a ‘set it and forget it’ system, which also uses machine learning and dedicated sensors to determine which channels and bands to use, automatically switching them to give you the best signal possible.
