Does anybody have it? Like-dislike?
I have it. Covers the whole house. I'm sitting on the deck streaming the baseball game and this is my speeds at the moment.
Though my brother has the Netgear Wi-Fi mesh and gets a little bit better speeds. Though Google wifi is smaller and easier to hide also cheaper.
What kind of connection do you have?
As in provider?
Yeah like google fiber or charter or fios or whatever
149 is outside. I'm usually 190s in the house .
Never heard of it decent speeds you got tho im hoping i can convince the lady to get a 1gbps connection when we move
what i get on a wired connection closer to 60/10 on wifi. dont need a good looking router because we dont hide our in the basement like some ing weirdo afraid of radio waves
I’m at 370 up/down with AT&T fiber. Will never go back to cable if I don’t have to. Symmetrical (equal) download and upload speeds are great for file uploads and FaceTiming.
Set my retiree parents up with Google WiFi units and they've been great for them. They’ve got security chips, auto select 2.4 or 5 ghz WiFi frequency for each individual device using the same network SSID (name) and they automatically install firmware/security updates. I can also remote in with the Google WiFi app on my phone and see what’s going on if they ever have any net issues.
Very nice. Highest I've had is in the 250s. But that's also not during peak hours.
Can you imagine Google looking at Shecky's internet history?..Yuk!
isps already do that and so does google with analytics
You can manually set your DNS server addresses from within the Google Wifi app. Might give a little more privacy if that's a concern. Think I remember @cheryl mentioning she's a Cloudflare DNS fan. Their servers are 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
Google Wifi DNS options are "Automatic" (Google's DNS), "ISP's DNS" and "Custom."
DNS servers are basically "phone books" that translate the web address you enter when you navigate to a website into the site's actual ip address. browncafe.com might actually be 123.456.78.9 or something. Any company that provides this service can see what sites are being navigated to. Just a matter of who you trust, if you care at all.
My internet is so slow I'm just barely able to download porn. It gets flustering trying to watch a video and they freeze just a millisecond before the money shot.
Some porno-related botnet is probably using your computer to mine Bitcoin or something. Floods your CPU cycles and net connection. LOL
