I don’t live in a big suburban house, but my parents-in-law do. So while I reviewed the singular Google Wifi earlier this month, I wasn’t able to really see the full potential of using the routers together to create a mesh network. I knew where I could, though. I’ve long struggled with getting my work done when staying with my in-laws, because their WiFi has always been absolutely horrid. They’ve long stuck with the stock router that Comcast gave them, and said ISP foolishly placed it in the most secluded corner of the house.

Thankfully this isn’t just any router, though. This is the successor to the OnHub, and that means we get an attractive design, as well as a delightfully user-friendly app that lets you “set it and forget it” if you want to, but puts all the most important features at your fingertips if you ever need them…

Google’s goal for Google Wifi is to make creating a strong mesh wireless network through an entire home easy and relatively affordable. We already know the setup process is a breeze, but we’ve yet to see exactly how strong Google’s product is. Now, Google is putting it to the test.
