While it is often nice to get into the nitty-gritty details of configuring a Wifi router, the Nest Wifi mesh router and point take away much of the complexity, making it a snap to set up, configure, and use. And it’s a smart device too! I was a bit nervous in setting up this mesh Wifi router from Google Nest mainly because I am used to having full configuration of the WiFi routers I have used in the past. Also, I had read about issues related to the fiber modem and router I was using due to reports of reduced bandwidth and other issues.
However, the setup and configuration using Google Home were easy and straight-forward. And, with recent updates to Google Home, there are more configurations options now available. Bandwidth and throughput on our Wifi network have been equal to or better than previous Wifi routers I have used in the past. And the coverage, because of the mesh, has been better. The price point is right in line with other mesh routers as well as other higher-end Wifi routers. And this is a “smart” Wifi router, fully integrated into the Google Home and Google Assistant ecosystem.
