NFT: Google Wifi - Follow-up to Other Thread

ZogZerg : 2/10/2019 10:47 am
COSTCO had the Google Home WiFi - 4 pack on sale so I went ahead and picked it up yesterday.

I have Verizon Fios and I know there were some questions whether Google WiFi would work OK with it.

The answer was "yes" on that thread and I just wanted to confirm for anyone still thinking about it, that Google WiFi works fine with Verizon Fios. All I had to do was make a simple change to my Verizon router to turn of the wireless and the Google WiFi was a simple hookup after that. I then placed the other 3 Google devices throughout the house and I now have a great WiFi connection throughout my whole house.

Everything was easy to setup with the Google WiFi app.


Of course you have to reconnect all of your wireless devices, but I took that as an opportunity to change and create a stronger PW.


Awesome

FiOS router.
I have enough FiOS products so I didn't want anything else from them.
I have a Verizon/Google system.

Works fine. I believe I commented on the older thread stood. No more connection issues.

Anyone have success improving FIOS with a NETGEAR Orbi Wall-Plug Whole Home Mesh WiFi System? Amazon has a deal on it currently. Thanks.
