After making its way through the FCC and then being made available to preorder a few weeks ago, Google has now officially launched its new Google WiFi router, which has been designed to provide an easy to set up system that creates a wireless mesh providing seamless WiFi coverage throughout your home.
Using a selection of Google WiFi routers and replacing their existing hardware, users can eliminate dead zones and buffering, says Google. The new Google wireless router is compatible with major Internet service providers including Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon Fios.
Google explains :
Enjoy a fast signal in every room, on every device thanks to a new type of connected system. Replace your router with a set of Google Wifi points that work together to cover your home in fast, reliable Wi-Fi. Advanced software works in the background to manage your network so you never have to. Network Assist always selects the clearest channel and fastest band for your devices.
Through the companion app, it’s easy to share your password with guests, prioritize devices on your network, see what’s connected, and more. Google Wifi allows you to pause the Wi-Fi on kids’ devices, like during bedtime or dinnertime.
Features of the new Google Wireless router include :
• A single Wifi point covers up to 1,500 sq. ft, a set of three covers homes up to 4,500 sq. ft. Wifi points work together so you can add more if you need additional coverage
• Network Assist technology keeps your connection fast by always selecting the clearest channel and fastest band for your devices
• A simple app gets you set up quickly and allows you to see what’s connected, prioritize devices, and pause the Wi-Fi on kids’ devices
Google recommends that one wireless router is capable of covering a 500-1500 square feet, while two will cover 1500-3000 square feet and three 3000-4500 square feet.
