The mesh test measures the connection between your router or primary Wifi point (the one connected to your modem) and any additional points. The stronger that connection is, the better your Wi-Fi will be throughout your house.
Note: This test is only available if you have multiple Wifi devices.
To run a mesh test:
- Open the Google Home app .
- Tap Wi-Fi Wifi devices Points Test mesh.
Once your mesh test is concluded, one of these three ratings will appear: “Great,” “OK,” or “Weak.” Here’s what those ratings mean:
|Great||More than 100 Mbps|
|OK||Between 50 and 100 Mbps|
|Weak||Less than 50 Mbps|
Note: Overall performance also depends on internet speed provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If your point has a weak mesh connection, try to move it closer to your router or primary Wifi point (the one connected to your modem). Points work best when they’re no more than two rooms apart. Also, make sure there aren’t any objects like thick walls or furniture that block your Wifi points.
Sometimes you need to move a different point that’s not “weak” in order to improve the weak Wifi point’s performance.
