A new, cheaper Google Wifi router is in the works

A new, cheaper Google Wifi router is in the works

Google's latest Nest Wifi routers are rather expensive, but unique: They serve as both a Wi-Fi access point and a Nest Home speaker at the same time.

Google Nest Wifi review: Effortless whole-home networking made even better

Modern-day networking has taken a lot of the sting out of getting your devices up and connected, but there can still be a lot of hoops to jump though, and the idea of running cables, placing antennas, and drowning in a sea of DHCP leases and DNS lookups is enough to give even seasoned techies a mild panic attack.
