You fancy a new Wi-Fi router? Wait a minute, there could be a new model on the market in the coming weeks. Indeed, it is reported that Google is preparing to launch a router to its event “Pixel” on October 4, which may seem odd given that the company already has the OnHub router on the market.
However, the sources relate to Android Police that this new router, called Google WiFi will cost 129 dollars.
Although this is not the cheapest router market, this is still a peripheral cheap, cheaper than OnHub which costs 179 dollars. But, you may well use it for something else. Indeed, the router would be able to connect to multiple access points and turn them into a wireless giant.

This basically mesh network connects different networks together so they completely cover a house in one super network.
Certainly, routers already do this, but they are more expensive than the future supply of Google. Currently, consumers can also extend their wireless coverage in many ways. For starters, they can purchase a router and an additional transponder to extend coverage.
The repeater captures the wireless signal from the router and projects the signal in other parts of the house that the router can not reach. Another method is to buy more than one router and connect them together via an Ethernet cable, which is ugly, but that is a perfect method to cover dead spots.
It is also mentioned that the Google WiFi router will have some smart features, although details on these are rare.
In addition to Google WiFi, it is also expected that the search giant revealed the price of its Google Home to 129 dollars, a new 4K Ultra Chromecast and the famous smartphones and Pixel Pixel XL next month. Stay connected, I will keep you informed.
