Key features of Google WiFiThe huge, game-changing feature of mesh technology (including Google WiFi) is that you can get a solid, reliable WiFi signal right where you want it. You’re no longer confined by the range of a single WiFi transmitting device. Google WiFi is superb for larger homes or for homeowners seeking to push WiFi out to the edges of their property. For those of you who have worked with WiFi extenders or older bridging options for WiFi, you’ll know that cluttered channels and competing devices are a constant, ongoing issue. Google WiFi instantly solves that. Mesh technology works in a far more coordinated way. The result is a fast and stable connection. Another big selling point of this product is that once you’re set up, the entire network is very easy to administer. If you have some WiFi experience, setup will be a breeze and if you don’t, remember that Nerds On Call offers an installation service. Just call 1-800-919-6373 or use our contact form for more information.

Among the positive reviews, the simplicity of use was often cited as a selling point. Many consumers write about how they were able to use Google WiFi to solve an ongoing connectivity issue. Of the few negative reviews, a few people spoke about needing to purchase additional units to extend their WiFi range. This typically applied to very large homes. Others did not like using an app to administer their network.
How smart home friendly is this product?Good WiFi is the backbone of smart home products. As such this product is a great purchase to strengthen the overall tech infrastructure of your home. Google also plans to incorporate Google Home and Alexa functionality, so in the future, your home network could be controlled via voice. While this is far from necessary, it’s a great bonus.
Installation and setupGoogle WiFi installation is designed for simplicity. If you have experience with home WiFi this will be a breeze for you. The app guides you through the process of setup and is designed to be highly intuitive. However, if you aren’t as confident or if you want to get a bit more sophisticated (for example if you want to allocate bandwidth limits to devices or integrate guest access to certain devices in your network,) Nerds On Call can always help with a complete installation and hookup.
We’re highly experienced in the setup and installation of home WiFi systems. If you’d like our help you can call us at 1-800-919-6373 or reach us via our contact form.

Questions nerds often hear about Google WiFi
I just can’t get WiFi to work in my home. Should I just get network cable installed?
A few years ago, the answer would probably have been yes. These days though mesh technology can work wonders in houses with lots of connection black spots. While cable is still necessary in some cases, this can usually be avoided.
Will I need to get permission to do this with my Internet Service Provider?
No, this isn’t necessary. All the equipment we install will work with (and improve) your connection.
Is it secure?
This product is designed to keep your home network and connected devices safe. Additionally, as part of our installation service, we’ll make sure it’s configured to be fully secure.
