The Google Wifi mesh wireless system has been at the top of Amazon’s best-selling routers list for, well, for as long as we can remember. It’s not the best mesh Wi-Fi system we’ve tested — the AmpliFi HD takes that honor — but it’s wonderfully simple and it’s the most affordable home mesh system out there. It’s also a Google product, so it’s no wonder that it’s Amazon’s best-selling router product. Or at least, it was Amazon’s best-selling router product. Google Wifi was just surpassed by the NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 Smart Dual Band WiFi Router, another top-quality option from one of the leading names in home wireless systems. It’s three times less expensive than Google Wifi, and you should definitely check it out if you’re in the market for a new router.
