Oh where to begin…
Techie but not so much when it comes to networking. Fringe cell area, weird house layout that limited cable pulls and reliance on 2 different routers with different names to get coverage in all areas of the house. It worked but could be a pain to switch over from one SSID to another if you wanted to be mobile. I never could get both access points to work properly with the same name.
I had an opportunity to get a 3 pack of the Google Wifi pucks. With nothing to lose, I replaced one of the routers in the far end of the house and placed the remaining 2 pucks in rooms stretching to the other side. Ease of setup, WOW.
RW coverage is seamless now and better than ever in the house. So much so, I took the 2nd router out of the mix.
I don’t know how they did it or how it all works with the pucks to create the mesh network but again wow. Going outside to have a conversation meant the end of a phone call. Not anymore.
