What's the point of having two routers instead of one router and one point?

Routers also have Ethernet in so they can be connected via Ethernet backhaul and deliver greater speeds. Satellites have neither Ethernet in or out and can only be connected using wireless backhaul so speeds will be slower

I'm new to the mesh setup: can you connect two of these routers to just one network?

This is an Amazon only bundle Google had to come up with as an alternative to the router+point bundle. Amazon doesnt sell competing assistant devices. The point has Google assistant built in, the router does not.

That sucks. I would actually want my second device to have the assistant built in. Two birds stoned at once and all that.

How would this be vs. the Eero 3 pack (non-pro) around the same price ($249)?

I have the smaller Orbi setup from Costco and get constant dropped connections for several seconds to a minute and then it comes back. Driving the family crazy. This is sitting right next to the router. I can literally touch it on my home office desk.

I cant use the points with no ports, I need Ethernet on the other points for devices hardwired in.

Best buy has that bundle for 199, if you want that option. the router has better bandwidth but is pricey

Sorry, dumb question. I am putting my PS4 upstairs in my new house. If I put one router downstairs and one router upstairs and hook that up to my PS4 via Ethernet - is this much better than having it connected via Wifi with an access point? Even though the second router is connected with Ethernet- doesn't it still need to communicate with the main router wirelessly?

I have this and it's been okay overall. Came from just one router that worked well but had dead spots in the house. My experience with this set up has been mixed. Set up was super easy and fast. I get excellent speeds and no longer have dead spots in my house. The issue I have run into is I have to reset the router a 1-2 times per month because it won't transmit data. I previously have only had to do that once per year. It isn't a dealbreaker but annoying. If they fix that issue I would love this set up. W

Technically better. Real world, probably won't notice a difference at all. Yes it connects wirelessly, unless you run a cable, but I'm assuming that's not an option.

No. It is dual band, not tri-band
