Amazon has the Nest WiFi router 2-pack for $239.

https://www.amazon.com/Google-Nes...161&sr=8-3

Store: Amazon

NOTE: This is for 2 routers and not the Router and Point 2 pack. Both units are at AC2200 instead of the Point at AC1200 which can be cheaper but slower internet speeds.


SOME ADDTIONAL INFORMATION FROM PREVIOUS DEALS

This deal is for 2 WiFi Routers, which is different from 1 WiFi Router and 1 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.

he 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.

Add an unmanaged Ethernet hub. You can find a cheap one for $10.

Get an 8 port gigabit ethernet switch (they are cheap for 15 to 20 bucks). In this day and age where we have so many streaming devices and gaming devices in family room and bedrooms. An ethernet switch in every room is always handy to connect all devices.

I always alike all my entertainment/gaming devices wired for a stable connection leaving only the mobile devices on wifi.

how do you connect multiple switches? don't they have to be hardwired to the router?

As the others said, a competent unmanaged 8 port switch (I typically use brand TP-Link myself, such as the TP-Link TL-SG108) is cheap and gets the job done for adding more ethernet ports

Yes. They will. You connect an ethernet wire from router to one of the port on the switch. If it is an 8 port gigabut switch then rest of the 7 ports can be used to connect various devices like TV, Xbox, receiver/Amp, bluray player, Roku, desktop etc etc

In my case my home was pre-wired with ethernet jacks coming out of the wall in every room. So in my office where the coax comes into my home (which is the entry point) I have my main router there connected to the modem. From the router an ethernet wire is connected to a switch. From the switch an ethernet wire is connected to the port on the wall thus opening up the rest of the home where I can place other switches directly connecting the wire from wall to the switch.
I placed the second (and third) mesh router (I have a different mesh setup old TP link routers using google wifi app) in another room hardwired it to the port coming from the wall and then another wire goes out to the switch from the router.

In cases where the home is not hardwired then all you do is just use the second router unit to connect to the main unit wirelessly via mesh and you can still use the second unit to connect to another second switch and make use of multiple ports. In this case though you will not get the full potential of a wired backhaul setup you can still use a switch connected to the 2nd unit.

Will the backhaul work if there is an unmanaged switch in-between wifit router and hubs? I know you can do wired backhaul directly, but haven't found anything to confirm it can be done indirectly as well.

Thanks,

I just bought the Google - Nest Wifi AC2200 Mesh System Router and 2 Add-On Points (3-Pack) - Snow about 1/2 hour ago for $270.00 ($300-10% birthday coupon).

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/goog...Id=6382518

I'm wondering if this is a better deal. I have a 2 story 2350 sq foot house with the router on the second floor. I have a hardwire Ethernet port also on the first floor. Would I be better off putting a router on each floor using this deal, or keeping the 3 pack I just purchased and using the router upstairs and setting up 2 access points on the first level? Thanks for any suggestions.

I have a TP link that's on its last leg. It's not even 3 years old and it's about to die. But the coverage on it is great. I have a 1700SF house plus a garage and a 640SF granny flat in the back. And it covers most of the backyard. So I'd say roughly 6000SF with one router. With one Nest router, it only covers 2200SF? Why so small compare to conventional?

You say it allows wired backhaul. Presumably that means the signal from the access point to the router, but how about the signal from the router to the access point?
