thank you! how about wifi repeater?
You don't need a repeater with 3 Google wifi units; it will cover your entire house.
I am not in IT but, I like tech stuff and computers. That's the only qualifications I have but, I run a Ubiquiti Unifi system at home. There's an article that says something like, Ubiquiti Unifi made him realize how the traditional wifi sucks. That is so true. It's also perfect for your home and business setup. I feel like I would be doing you injustice, if I didn't tell you all that before you decide to buy a traditional wifi system.
Ended up purchasing the Deco M9+, I've been studying the Ubiquiti Unifi system last night and decided that it'd be overkill for my current needs (and for the next year or so), that plus the convenience of buying the Deco in your neighborhood computer supply shop and being able to setup ASAP. Maybe next time I'd be able to justify the "upgrade" and join you guys up there.
a wired acess point on the 2nd floor may solve your problem.
Easiest and cheapest method would be to move the existing WiFi router to a more central location, that might help in boosting your signal upstairs. If not, then you can opt to put a repeater (additional device and SSID/WiFi Name) or a Mesh system where you buy a set up multiple nodes (usually bought in a pack of 2s or 3s) to cover your entire home. The latter is easier to setup since you need minimal networking knowledge and almost no re-wiring needed.
This is the best approach. A wired connection to a 2nd or succeeding AP is always ideal, especially on multi-storey environments. This applies even to some mesh solutions. Google WiFi and TP-Link Deco, as examples, allows for a LAN backhaul on the satellite pucks.
