5.Google WiFi

Whole Home WiFi Mesh System

$$$

Google WiFi wins our pick for best design not just for its hardware, but its software, too. The accompanying app (for Android or iOS) is intuitive and lets you manage the status of your points, as well as set up guest networks, test speeds, port forwarding and more. Unfortunately, there are no parental controls, but regardless, Google Wi-Fi will get your household online quickly and easily.

  • Each point houses a Quad-core Arm CPU, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of eMMC flash memory,
  • plus AC1200 (2X2) 802.11ac and 802.11s (mesh) circuitry and a Bluetooth radio. Google combines its 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands into a single band, which means you can’t designate a device to a single band, but on the upside, it uses beamforming technology, which automatically routes devices to the strongest signal.
  • Leave it to Google to design the best-looking anything. Its Wi-Fi system is no exception. The set contains three satellites, which Google called “Wi-Fi points,” each of which covers 1,500 square feet, for a grand total of 4,500 square feet of blanketed coverage. The points are shaped like thick hockey pucks and sit beautifully in plain view.

This mesh product still follows the previous few google hardware ‘s design style, the round cake shape design makes it look more compact and convenient. The middle of a circle of state lights brings more artistic beauty.

Product Dimensions, 4.2 x 4.2 x 2.7 inches.

A single Wi-Fi point covers up to 1,500 sq. ft., a set of three covers homes up to 4,500 sq. ft. Wi-Fi points work together so you can add more if you need additional coverage
