Hi, I was wondering I have a house that is smaller than $2,200 ft² but I have a lot of devices connected to my Wi-Fi smart plugs light plugs phones. the list goes on tons of devices connected. I'm going to be buying the nest Wi-Fi pro 2 pack, but I have a $400 gift card. should I just go ahead and buy the 3 pack? Will 3 nest wifi pros make my connection more stable since I have so many Wi-Fi devices. or does the more points I have weak in my connection? I'm confused. should I get the three pack or two pack? it's all about the best connection for me not about the money
2 Nest Wifi Pro routers will generally cover up to 4,400 sq ft and they can handle up to 300 connected devices per network. Generally speaking, router placement and home size, materials and layout can affect how Wi-Fi signal travels. Poor placement and larger homes or homes with thicker walls or long, narrow layouts may need extra Wi-Fi points for full coverage. The strength and speed of the signal will also depend on your Internet provider. All of that is to say its important where you place your routers, as well as the construction of your home. As for adding multiple routers, as a rule, more than five routers in a network may result in degraded performance and is not recommended. I'll link some useful resources below as well.
We appreciate you choosing our Nest Wifi Pro for your home's Wifi network. The 3 pack can definitely cover an area more than your whole property. Given the quantity of smart devices that you have, I hope that your internet bandwidth can cover all of your devices. Usually smart devices would compete with each other for the internet connection and sometimes it can lead other devices to have a slow connection. You may update us here on this thread about your experience with your new Nest Wifi Pro and let us know if you have additional questions.
I saw in have 1 gb internet speeds with a great modem that's capable of doing over 1 gb. What I got from her is that as long as my modem is & internet provider are good I could have a thousand devices on one router as long as it was under 2200 sq ft. But I still got the 3 pack. What's faster 3 pack in a 1400 sq ft house with a thousand devices or a 1 pack
Let me see if I can explain it a bit. A single point provides excellent speed and a good amount of coverage, but at the edges of its reach, it won't be quite as fast as it will be closer to the point. The 5GHz speeds have a lower range than the 2.4GHz, so closer to the router is faster. Each point will take that router's range and extend it, so your 5GHz range will be greater throughout your home. You will want to have the points spread apart so they can blanket your home with coverage, but make sure each point is within a couple of rooms of your main router. This will give you the fastest speeds, strongest connections, and most reliable network across your living space.
If you have any more questions, please let me know.
