Google Wifi Is Now Available to Purchase From Best Buy
Update: After refreshing the Best Buy page, it looks like the ‘3-pack’ Google Wifi has run out of stock unfortunately, but the $129.99 router is still available.
If you’re experiencing difficulty purchasing a Google Wifi to simplify your home or office network due to lack of availability of the product, then you’ll be more than happy to know that the router is available to purchase from Best Buy.
In Addition to Being Available on Best Buy, Here Are Instructions on How to Setup Google Wifi in a Painless Manner
Both the single Google Wifi router and ‘3-pack deal’ products are available at Best Buy with no changes in pricing. As for instructions, Google Wifi comes with just two Ethernet ports, which will require you to use one of the ports when you plug in your modem. The compact nature of the router certainly has its perks, but the lack of additional Ethernet ports might create complications for users who want a small, but powerful router to increase the speeds and range of their existing network.
After you plug the Google Wifi into the modem, the light of the device will turn blue, prompting you that the device is now ready to get configured. During this time, you should download the Google Wifi app and sign in using your Google account. After successfully signing in, the QR code will need to be scanned (present underneath the Wifi) using the smartphone and the app will do the rest. After going through this process, you will be required to setup a username and password for the router. In case you have additional devices that you need to setup your Wifi, you can use the app to do that for you, which sounds like a painless experience.
It is certainly easier compared to manually configuring your old routers, saving you time in the process. However, you will still be required to shell out a few extra dollars on Google Wifi, as a single device costs $129, while a 3-pack router costs $299 for bombarding your home with network signals.
