            @Ven0m: I use an old tablet that is 2.4ghz to set up all devices that can only connect to tge 2.4ghz network.

        •  

          There are particular smart home products that are dumb and have trouble connecting when a mesh router appears as one wireless network name and a workaround is to temporarily turn off 5Ghz or go outside for the initial setup.

        Not sure how it would have been possible last week (unless i am missing something) I have been checking TGG commercial everyday for the past month and it has been out of stock for the 1 base plus 2 points.

        Probably means last month lol e.g. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/8789218/redir

        To answer your question : Unfortunately No. It has been out of stock for sometime.

    Need a new wifi system. Was thinking of the Netgear RBK50 if its much better? Stream 4k remuxs from my NAS.

    •  

      Are you completely unable to use Ethernet?

      •  

        Not completely but for the most part. Ethernet in 1 room only. Laying ethernet is not very practical as the house is besser block and just a nightmare.

            @b0sanac: Not interested in powerline crap.

    I missed out 3 pack M5 on Amazon for $223 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/542135
    , this is double the price. Is it worth the price tag?

    What about this :

    If you have a use for Google One.

    1) Sign up to Google One (the 2TB Plan for $12.49)
    2) Purchase and receive 10% back in store credit ($44.90)
    3) Cancel Google One Subscription
    4) Final Price Via Google, taking into account the $12.49 = $416.59

    •  

      Hi Krish,
      If we've had Google One for a little while, it looks like the 10% hardware credit is returned after 25 days so it might be a while before we see the credits.

    Could this sustain a 1GPS FTTP connection over wifi? Current router is struggling.

    • +2 votes

      Nope that's wifi 6 router territory.

      •  

        Yeah - have been looking at WIFI6 but its around $560 for a single router without any additional mesh points. This is apparantly recommended by ABB so it's quite confusing.

        • +1 vote

          Thats just shit you say in a partnership.

          Asus models are cheaper than that I believe…. Though they either work great or buggy as hell… They've given up on some devices too.

          Aaaww negged. Diddums. I'm an ABB customer using this very device. It doesn't make one tiny difference.

          Nest wifi can handle Gigabit wired with ethernet.

          •  

            @Twix: Yeah my current Asus RT-68CU router can sustain 940 down on wired, 600 max on wireless. Looking for something with more horsepower. people on whirlpool have had success with WIFI 6 so though this Nest with its mesh system might be worth while but have found no confidence here.

              @ndr2h: That's great considering it's a 6 year old router. Perhaps wait for the Asus RT-AX89X

        Xiaomi last month released the Mi Router AX1800 which according to review can support nesh networking later. Currently it can be had around $100 per unit on Gearbest. I'm very happy with the Tenda Nova MW3 3 pack but will upgrade to the Xiaomi one if their mesh is decent.

        •  

          Since it's not a urgent upgrade wait about 6 to 8 months for the initial firmware bugs to get fixed.

      No existing Wifi standard can.

      Edit: Wi-Fi 6 seems to be getting very close at real life distances. https://www.cnet.com/news/how-fast-is-wi-fi-6-our-latest-spe...

        This. 1000mbps over Wifi, dreaming.

        If an asthmatic fly sneezes it'd knock off those imaginary figures.

        • +1 vote

          It will be close, I currently get approx 90MB/s (700mbps ish) on my Asus rt ac88u and pce-88 adapter, from roughly 7m in another room on my server.

          When they release 4x4 wifi 6 clients it should get to 900's which is close enough to call it done.

          •  

            @AEKaBeer: Raw speed figures isn't the only influencing factor though.

            And naturally everyone's experiences will be different with wifi too.

            •  

              @DisabledUser139667: What other factors are there that actually matter if you are achieving said raw speed reliably?

              By no means is wifi perfect, but I think people's expectations are very skewed when it comes to this stuff. Most issues are addressed by the use of a second access point and selecting a less congested band. The specific to one group of people's issues, like those with leaky microwaves or multi-story double brick houses isn't the fault of wifi.

              •  

                @AEKaBeer: If online gaming is a concern, wifi is hardly desirable….

                Many devices don't like wifi connections over wired regardless…. in house streaming is a prime example of devices that favour ethernet.

                I'm in a double story, not brick, and I can't get wifi at all in my back room…. I had to run ethernet. I used atleast half a dozen devices, probably more.

                •  

                  @DisabledUser139667: Online gaming, wifi 6 is said to do an excellent job of managing latency (I don't have it so I can't speak from experience).

                  In home streaming works well in my case, from PC to tablet and PC to PC, but not great for the steamlink device itself.

                  As far as your range issue, it's again one of those cases I was talking about earlier. There's an external factor from the wireless tech itself that is preventing you from getting wifi in the backroom. It could be the sheer size of the house or the construction materials (lots of metal/sisilation).

                  I mean ethernet is the approach I went with for my place, until both ports behind my main PC failed due to poor placement of the runs by the electrician during construction (directly under the bath where they were crushed), I can't go and blame ethernet saying "on ethernet, dreaming" because my situation didn't work out.

                  •  

                    @AEKaBeer: Optimally you'd still go Ethernet given the option. It's more stable. Fair points though

    Do the points have ethernet out?

      None on the Nest wifi points.

        Ah man that's a shame. Thanks for the response.

          Yeah for ethernet pickup a few Nest wifi bases. Unfortunately it's a costly exercise.

      Nope.

      Just add a switch to the main router. A huge downside on the original.

    Just bought a base unit for 191 price matched GG commercial at JB.

    I had 3 of the old Google wifi units with ethernet ports so will make this my router now and relegate the 3 older ones as extensions

    • +1 vote

      do JB price match GG commercial>>?

    •  

      What is the benefit of adding a single nest wifi router to the older 3 google wifi system? Apart from adding a 4th puc.

      •  

        Nest wifi is a faster spec router and more wifi coverage.

        • +1 vote

          Well I needed a 4th one and rather than buy a refurb or used Google wifi unit, this was an option that worked with my existing 3. So use this one as the main router to take advantage of any new benefits and use the older one as extensions.

  • +2 votes

    Disappointing that Google decided to remove the ethernet port in the Nest Wifi. I have the old Google Wifi and use the ethernet ports for a super stable wired backhaul. Mesh extenders through wifi will never be as good as a wired system.

    •  

      For ethernet pickup a few Nest wifi bases. Nest wifi is backwards compatible and you can swap out or add Nest wifi to your existing Google wifi setup.

        This. I have 3 older ones and currently have 2x hue and 1x smart things connected.

        Just used the base nest as my new router but technically you can run 3 base units

    No dice getting this price matched with officeworks phone sales. The lady and her manager said they couldn't verify the model number is the same on the google store. Also they said the google store doesn't say AUD, even though it is a AU website…

        Have you got one price matched ?

        •  

          Nah I haven't called. That's from Google Store checkout. There's no reason for Officeworks to deny the price match.

  •  

    How does this stack up against the Amazon Eero pre-sale on promotion at the moment. I've got my eye on a 3-pack to extend the signal to far reaches of a large double-storey home. Not sure whether to go for Nest or Eero, or whether it's safer to just wait for Wifi 6

    •  

      Or Wifi 6E…

  •  

    Now also $449 at officeworks

    •  

      Might as well get it direct from Google, if only you have the Google One subscription and pending the level of your plan, you can get up to 10% cash back in the form of store credit for next purchase on Google store.

  •  

    If two points are too many for me, am I able to sell one off? I.e. can others buy any one point to add onto their current system? thanks

  •  

    Just noticed today, Officeworks have these at the same price ($449). No more price beat.

  •  

    This or Deco M5? I don't think I'll use the Nest speaker or Google assistant. But being a newer device likely to get more software updates over M5. Thoughts? Happy to spend extra on Nest.

    Hey guys,

    I currently am using a Telstra smart gen 2 modem with my ABB HFC connection. The modem is located quite centrally so am finding adequate wifi coverage however on the furtherest devices it can sometime take a little while for wifi to connect when starting the device (e.g smart tv)

    Sorry if this is a noob question – Would having these google wifi mesh system (3 pack) as a replacement make my wifi devices' wifi "more responsive"?

    Secondly, if my existing wifi coverage is ok – what benefits could I expect from using this wifi nest wifi system as an alternative? E.g more devices streaming? stronger wifi signal across the house?

    Thank you

  •  

    Thanks op. If you have a 2TB Google account the price is effectively $404 ($45 voucher).

    Suspect this deal is no longer. Google store is full price
