Google Wifi Mesh System for Retail Outlets?

Hi, I am looking at getting the Google Wifi Mesh set of 3 for my retail shops.

Shop 1 ---10m--- Shop 2 ---20m---- Shop 3

The modem/router is currently placed at Shop 2 which is situated in the middle. The distance between Shop 1 and 2 is around 10m and shop 2 and 3 is 20m

All 3 shops are located at the same building.

I have tried the Mi Wifi Extender to no avail. Do you think the google wifi mesh system would be a viable solution for my situation?

Thanks !

The distance is one thing, you also need to consider if there are walls in between or any electronic interference from other devices. I suggest to buy/borrow one and see where's the furthest you can walk to before your connection drops. As long the 2nd node is within range, it should work.

You’ll more likely to benefit from enterprise grade access points than Google wifi mesh..

Talk to your landlord. You are paying rent for 3 shops. That's tens of thousand of dollars every month?

Rental market is softening now and some retail shops are bleeding.

See if you can run a lan cable through.
