How it works

Google WIFI works differently than a traditional router. You set up multiple points throughout your home, creating a mesh network that delivers a consistently strong and secure signal. WIFI points work together to create a connected system that gives you a strong signal all throughout your home. A consistently fast signal because each WIFI point is a router with a high-fidelity signal; all of your devices get a fast connection.

Google WIFI uses mesh technology to create one Wi-Fi network, so you can stream a movie on your phone and walk from room to room without any signal drops.

But what is mesh, exactly?

Let us get you to configure with your new Google WIFI system.

Here is what you will need to get started:
  • Google WIFI points
  • Google Account
  • Google WIFI app for Android or IOS
  • Broadband connection
  • Modem
  • Ethernet cable for the primary WIFI point
  • Power adapter for each WIFI point

Step 1: Find a spot for your WIFI point

Your primary WIFI point needs to be connected to a modem. Depending on the length of the Ethernet and power cables, place your WIFI point in plain view like on a shelf or TV stand.

Step 2: Plug in your primary WIFI point

Connect the provided Ethernet cable to the WAN port of your Google WIFI point. Then connect the other end to your modem. Plug your Google WIFI point into a power outlet. The light will slowly flash in blue to indicate that it is powered on and ready for setup.

Step 3: Download the Google WIFI app

Download the Google WIFI app on your Android or iOS mobile device. Sign in to your Google Account.

Step 4: Find and connect Google WIFI point

Open the Google WIFI app and follow the instructions to connect it to the internet. Scan the QR code. The app will automatically find your WIFI point. When prompted, point your phone’s camera at the QR code on the base of your WIFI point. This will automatically connect your phone to your Google WIFI point. If the QR code is missing or you are unable to scan it, you can find and enter the code manually.

Step 5: In the app, choose your WIFI point’s location

Where is your Google WIFI point? Select a location in the app — this label will help you identify it later. You can also make a custom label. When you are done, tap next.

Step 6: Set up Wi-Fi

When asked, create a name for your Wi-Fi network. Then tap ‘Next’.

Create a password. Then tap ‘Create’.

Step 7: Set up additional WIFI points (if necessary)

Have more Google WIFI points? Select how many more you need to set up, and tap Next.

Where to put additional WIFI points

Additional points work best when they are no more than 2 rooms away. Also, try putting them in an open space. Learn more about the best place to put your WIFI points.

Hold your phone close to your Google WIFI point and tap ‘Add WIFI point‘.

Step 8: Review your network

After your WIFI points are setup, you will see an overview of your Wi-Fi network and all the WIFI points you have set up.

Step 9: Install software

After your WIFI points are setup, the app will download and install the Google WIFI software, which includes the latest features and security measures. This can take up to 10 minutes. Your WIFI points will restart and your Wi-Fi network will be down until the WIFI points fully turn on, when the light is solid teal.
