Google Wifi

Problem: Poor WiFi signal on the second floor.

Best solution: Pull a network cable up two floors and add an AP.

Lazy solution: Test a mesh WiFi.

Google Wifi was just released in the UK, so I grey imported it and will give it a go to see how it performs.

Initial thoughts: WiFi coverage is considerably better. iPerf shows about 10 times increase in throughput between client on second floor and server on the ground floor.
