With more family members streaming, studying, and working from home, you might have noticed a lag in your WiFi. There’s a speedier solution. Google WiFi allows you to replace your complicated home router and router extensions with a scalable, flexible WiFi system that covers your entire home.

How It Works

Each sleekly designed Google WiFi system gives you coverage for 1500 square feet, while a 3 pack can cover up to 4500 square feet. Unlike the complicated and glitchy setup traditional routers use, the Google WiFi system is easy to connect and expand through the Google Home app.

Control Your WiFi

In addition to being consistently fast, Google WiFi gives parents more control over how their network is used. Prevent children from browsing online when they should be learning from home by setting up restrictions on the mesh network. Parents can also manage screen time, restrict certain kinds of adult content, and pause WiFi to specific devices.

Why Customers Love It

More than 400 Amazon customers gave Google WiFi an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. Reviews mentioned how easy the setup was by just scanning the bottom of the device on the Google Home app. Customers who were frustrated with traditional WiFi extenders also felt the Google WiFi 3 pack was worth the investment and worked seamlessly from room to room.

Q: The grout line between my kitchen granite countertop and the tile backsplash has cracked for the umpteenth time. Each winter the crack appears, and each year I re-grout it hoping it will be the final time. Am I using the wrong grout? How would you repair this, and why does the crack disappear on its own in the summer? I have the same issue with other cracks around my home that mysteriously open and close depending on the time of year. --Gary K., Columbus, Oio
