    "Not bad...Love it...I purchased the Google mesh WiFi home system a little over a month ago, and I purchased it to go along with my Ring Pro doorbell, because something they don't tell you about the Ring doorbell is that it needs a substantial amount of WiFi in order to work properly, so I had to purchase an additional single satellite and put it on the back side of the wall where my ring Pro doorbell is located in order to get a better wifi connection to the doorbell....So each Google Wi-Fi in the 3 pack is it's own dual band ac-1200 access point, technically if u break it down there are 6 separate Wi-Fi signals that Google manages for u, these guys do what we call smart connect meaning that when u look in ur Wi-Fi list you'll only see one wifi network."

    "It's ok...Love it...I have had many routers before but this one is the ultimate router I love that it drops off those that are not using the Wi-Fi in order to allow the ones that are using the Wi-Fi to work faster ....I also did a walk around outside the house with my smartphone to see how far away I could get before the signal weakened which it did after about a hundred feet from the router that was inside the house, but still had a pretty good signal."
