" ...  Hi guys, if you want to extend the wifi to more rooms to cover more space. ... NEVER BUY MULTIPLE ROUTERS!! ... Just buy one router and multiple points.  ...  "

" ...  I have an "up to 300 mbps" Internet service, and the router gives me a consistent reading of 300 mbps or higher. ... The mesh connections are acceptable - there's something about the design of the house that makes a couple of rooms a challenge, but the signal still gets there and I get no complaints.  ...  "

" ...  The Second Router Configured without and issues. ... And I am using a wired connection to the 2nd device from my Home internet and it works great, the same as G-Wifi did, But it does not requires a wired connection.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Our house is 3 floors, 3750 sq ft. We use 3 of these (one is physically connected to our internet router, the other two act as signal boosters) and we get powerful signal even at the farthest reaches. ... Even for our big house, my tests showed we could have probably made do with just 2 routers (at the cost of some speed the further from the router we got), but we're suckers for speed so opted to go all out with 3, and I'm super happy we did.  ...  "

" ...  This is my second 2-router nest wifi purchase, which I have used to upgrade both my main home and a weekend house. ... In my weekend home I have just installed a couple of the google nest wifi routers (one as the router, the other as an access point again ethernet connected), but also have kept and am using a few of the older google wifi points as access points. ... Highly recommend the upgrade, especially if you found that the google wifi points were just not giving you the same range.  ...  "

" ...  another 5 min and the nest wifi was ready and I was adding the other 2 points ... while I had good coverage with the google wifi, the Nest gave 1 of my kids the speed boost I was looking for and now his remote learning due to Covid-19 has a little less lag during those video chats with his teacher on google he had a DL speed of 72Mbps down with 60 Mbps up, once the nest wifi was set up in the same room/ same location his speed increased to 167 Mbps down and 272 Mbps up that an improvement of 95 Mbps down and 212 Mbps up! ... i work from home and utilize a VPN for business and have had no issues with either the google wifi or the Nest Wifi .  ...  "

" ...  Confirm you don't have double NAT by running command prompt 'tracert 8.8.8.8' - there should only be one private IP address in the first two hops. ... Good luck with Google support if you need it - I chatted online with someone for two hours (no call center due to COVID-19) and all the agent did was send me form emails with different troubleshooting tips - sometimes unrelated to my problems, other times for steps I clearly already told him I've tried before.  ...  "
