Setting up WiFi mesh in 3-storey house

Currently using linksys router on 1F with 1 AP near main entrance
The linksys router is place back of the house where the ONT is located. Don't ask me how it was placed there as my friend is a complete noob n can't be bothered

2F has another AP
Both APs were old Dlink 816 routers n used for 6 yrs

Recently wifi became unstable n he asked me if I could help
His current setup was done by his wife's friend who is no longer in Sg

I was looking at Google wifi n linksys velop and since his place is 3 storey house,I think the Velop is suitable

Any suggestions n advice?

Your AP(s) are via wired or wireless connection to your main router ?

If you want the fastest wifi mesh, get the netgear orbi flagship model. Most expensive also.

Linksys have both dual bands and tri band model. Since you have data points, you can save some cash by going for the dual band model.

Google has the weakest WiFi spec of the 3 but it has a simple and easy setup. Some might say, too simple in terms of features.
