Been waiting for this deal to go live.

For Cyber Monday, Amazon has the 2 pack of Nest WiFi routers for $259.00. Right now the single routers are $149.00 so if you need multiple for wired backhaul or want the ability to use as a wireless mesh and need Ethernet ports on each point this is the best deal.

Note: This is not like the 3 packs that include a Router and 2 Points that are on sale for $289 - again these are 2 Routers. There is no Google Assistant in either of these devices like the Points in the 3 pack as well.

These are both routers, so they are actually $150 each. The points are $130 each.

Edit: Thought you meant individual pricing, but if you meant in terms of this combo then yeah it would be like paying $130 per.
$260 for the router 2 pack makes them $130 each.

Can anyone comment on the range of this router? I have a 3 level,2200 sqft home I'm trying to cover. Would like to just use one router without additional access points.
I have a 1600sf house with an extra 1000 sf finished in the basement. The house is a rectangle about 52 ' long. I have the router in the lower level at the far end. Anything within 30' says excellent, very good to about 45' and good at the far end. I bought the 3 pack set. $298 -100 for the Pixel 3a bonus. I was going to sell one point but now my coverage is good enough I can sell two and break even on the router.

Pm me. I'd be interested in buying an access point

This deal is for 2 WiFi Routers, which is different from your BB deal of 1 WiFi Router and 2 WiFi Points. The Routers allows hard-wiring Ethernet which the Points lack. The Routers also don't have the Google Assistant speaker built in like the Points do. OP's description already states all this.
Are you able to connect the two routers wirelessly? I currently have a single router upstairs, and want to put one router there, and the other one downstairs to be able to hardwire my desktop to. I don't want to have an ethernet connecting to the two routers

Yes you can. I even mentioned that in my original post.

How is this comparable to their older gen 3 pack mesh Google WiFi?
The older generation 3 pack mesh WiFi has three identical looking pucks, each at AC1200 speed and each with an ethernet port on it. Total coverage is 4,500 SF, with each covering 1,500 SF. You use the Google WiFi app, and there is no smart assistant, microphone, or speaker.

This particular 2 pack has two identical looking units, each at AC2200 speed and each with an ethernet port on it. Total coverage is 4,400 SF, with each covering 2,200 SF. You use the Google Home app, and this particular 2-pack has no smart assistant, microphone, or speaker either. However, if you were to buy a different set of Nest WiFi units that contain 1,600 SF satellite units (Amazon doesn't have them because they're a direct competitor with Amazon's echo units), or you were to add them on at a later date, those satellite units would have a smart assistant, microphone, speaker, and no ethernet port.

If you buy Google Wifi, or this particular Nest WiFi two pack, you have the choice of wireless backhaul (which will result in a reduction in speed for all but the unit directly plugged into the modem), or wired backhaul (run CAT-6 between the units and get the full speed out of each unit,). If you add a satellite unit onto Google Nest WiFi, there's no Ethernet port so you can only use wireless backhaul to those.

Google Nest Wifi is technically superior, but doesn't (yet?) have the proven track record that Google WiFi has. For example, on bestbuy.com, the Google Nest WiFi combinations they have for sale have between zero and 15 reviews, between 4.4 and 4.6 stars, and between 80% and 87% recommending to a friend. Google WiFi has 11,932 reviews, 4.8 stars, and 97% recommending to a friend.

Are these compatible with the Google Mesh Wifi? Or do I have to stay with the old system if I want to expand?

See these Nest wifi's just got release on 15th Oct and will take some time to garnish it's glory similar to original google wifi's. Also once people will start using them there will be bugs also that will eventually get fixed in few firmware iterations and then Nest wifi will be great again. I am using Two Nest router's and one Nest Point for past month and they have been excellently working without any single issue faced so far. Also you dont need to hard wire the 2n'd next router to setup as someone mentioned with reference to amazon review. You can simply setup any combination of routers or point's with simply plunging them in i.e. one router unit to modem rest others wirelessly. Patience is the key with any router be it nest or netgear or asus and they all takes few months of bug fixing in their software before these devices can be used optimally. Again so far no issues in 1 month where i have 32 devices connected to them all the time with multiple atleast 3 sources streaming 4K videos at any given point of time.

Yes google wifi's and Nest wifis can be mixed and matched in mesh setup. Only old Ohub routers are not compatible with these Nest wifi's

I would avoid buying Nest Point's in any configuration as they are not that better in terms of performance as compare to original google wifi's and ofcourse who needs google assistant built into the point's ? when everyone has google speakers/displays and so many other devices scattered throughout the home that can litsen to you and do whatever these point's are suppose to do. Nest Wifi routers are the one to go after for best performance and value for money. Nest point's will be hard to sell even in used device marked

Also best part is i never heard of these Google wifi's or Nest wifi units being bricked which is very common with Netgear or asus routers. So yes these google/Nest devices as long term investment and will definitely run for long haul. One should still keep one of these units handy at home for those situations when you'r existing routers starts behaving weired or need replacement due to frequent disconnect or wifi issues.

I bought these and just set them up. 2nd router does not need to be hardwired in. It can be used similar to the point.
