  • Abstract:  One of the most common annoyances of modern man is a poorly functioning WiFi connection. Especially now that more and more devices are becoming connected and it only gets busier in the ether, it can do no harm to take a good look at your current equipment...

  • When we look at the results of our first major comparative mesh-test, it is striking that mesh-technology certainly does not guarantee a higher throughput in all cases. It is also noteworthy that the test results clearly show that a client that is close t...

  • Google Wifi – Setup and interface What will appeal to many about the Google Wifi is its apparently easy setup and maintenance. Just download the Google Wifi app, follow the simple instructions and away you go. Some users may dislike that you're forced to...

  • Only one open ethernet port, and no USB, Limited range compared to alternatives, Few advanced configuration options
  • Yes, if you want a simple and elegant design that is beat only by its user-centric app. At $129 for a single or $299 for a three-pack of points, it's a good value compared to the alternatives. Keep in mind, however, that it has just one Ethernet port, and...

  • Google Wifi is the easiest router that we've ever set up, period. And, that's considering the two extra devices required to complete it. For a relatively affordable price, Google offers more units than most competitors and the best setup and management ap...

  • If you're looking to patch-up Wi-Fi weak spots or extend the reach of your internet around the home, then a mesh network solution such as using multiple Google Wifi units is a great way of doing it.It's hassle-free, you don't need a Master's degree in com...
