About this deal

For the strongest signal, place your router at eye level, in plain view, like on a shelf or TV stand. Granted, speeds still varied in some areas further from the router or Point, but they were never poor. And while the Nest Wifi router is only available in white, the range-extending Nest Wifi Points come in your choice of three colors -- white, blue and coral. The range-extending Nest Wifi Points come in your choice of three colors and double as Google Assistant smart speakers.

A CNET editor since 2013, Ry's beats include smart home tech, lighting, appliances, broadband and home networking.You just plug everything in, tell the app to connect with the router, and then scan a QR code on the bottom of each Point with your phone's camera. While Google’s Point bundles come with a white model, Google wants its Points to blend into your decor, so it also offers pale blue or pale pink options. If you'd like to add another Wi-Fi device, tap Yes in the app to continue or follow the steps below to add a point at a later time. Devices that aren't Wi-Fi 6E compatible will still work with Nest Wifi Pro, they just won't be able to access the 6 GHz band.

The Google Nest Wifi is a wireless mesh system and a follow-up to the original Google Wifi from 2016. Adding a Wifi Point after the main Router is done in exactly the same way, and can be just as … start-and-stop. Three separate bands, including an all-new 6 GHz band, help reduce interference to provide faster connections for more devices. You can then add Google Wifi and/or Nest Wifi points to the new network for additional Wi-Fi coverage. If you're unable to scan the QR code, tap Continue without scanning, then enter the setup key on the bottom of your device.Editors' note, April 8, 2020: We have updated this review with testing data from additional products.

Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience. The Nest Wifi can also prioritize traffic to any of the devices on your network, which comes in handy if you're streaming 4K video or gaming online. Once you've added all of your Wi-Fi devices, the app will perform a mesh test to confirm that everything is working. A mesh router system makes for a smart, sensible upgrade to your home's network, particularly if you're struggling with dead spots.The Point doesn’t have an ethernet jack and is solely wireless, meaning you need at least one Nest Wifi router to use the Point. Most Matter devices can be set up in just a few taps, and Matter's local connectivity makes your devices more responsive, reliable and secure.

So, I took each system home, set them each up on my network, and then ran lots and lots of speed tests in five different spots around my house. If the promotional purchase amount is not paid in full within the applicable promotional period, interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date and your total payments will be greater than the amount of the promotional purchase amount. Netgear's ping to a server located on the other end of Kentucky was only noticeably higher than average during 5 tests out of 120.

Google's Nest WiFi Router and Point both work together as a mesh system, to boost your wi-fi signal. Pretty much every room saw at least 150Mbps or better, and that was undoubtedly a massive improvement over the 80Mbps average we were getting from the existing crappy Wi-Fi router in my co-working space (a basic unit provided by CenturyLink).
