Of course, network connectivity is stable and easily accessible. Google Wi-Fi routers are a set of devices that can offer internet connectivity in every corner of your house let it be multiple story building. The connection to mesh point will be stronger if the distance between them is lesser. Thus, it would be better if the nodes are kept just above or below the primary router. The network connectivity or signal strength also depends on the walls between the accessing point and the device.
- Google Wi-Fi router exhibits signals in a circular manner, thus it’s not a matter of direction but distance. Nearer the nodes to each other, better the signal. The distance is in the vertical direction or horizontally doesn’t really create any difference. However, you must keep the devices at a similar place on both levels as it will provide a consistent Wi-Fi connection to devices.
- Since the network connection is in a circular manner thus if you keep the primary node in the center of your house, you will be getting better signals across your home and the mesh points will possibly be connected. However, there can be a loss of speed if there isn’t a direct connection from the primary device.
- Keeping the speed constant in ‘Home Wi-Fi’ has always been a challenge as houses are made of different material and every home has a different structure. The floor or ceiling can have various materials such as wiring, ventilation system and the brick and concrete which is used for a stronger holding, can definitely block wireless signals passed on by the primary router.
- Well, there is nothing to worry about as Google Wi-Fi offers an Ethernet cable connection to avoid such a situation. So, you can connect the mesh points with the primary device using Ethernet cables. The use of these cables can even let you experience high-speed internet in the weak signal connectivity areas of your home. As Google WI-FI offers a mesh network, which allows you to add more mesh units and you can experience unlimited network with high speed on different floors of your home.
To conclude, Google Wi-Fi is capable of working well in big or multi-story homes condition being, the position of the additional devices must be along with the primary node. There are other possible alternatives to establish a connection with the help of Ethernet cable if a wireless connection is weak due to the thickness of the floor walls and the elements used in construction. Google Wi-Fi creates a mesh network so, if in future you plan on expanding the structure of your home, then you can purchase another mesh unit and link it to the primary unit.For more information go to Google WiFi Help.
