    One of the things that I like about these recent Wifi system is their design. They don't look as much out-of-place as regular routers (especially modern ones, with D-Link, Asus and Netgear going with weird spaceship/spider designs).

    i guess black will make sense to some and their design / color scheme , where is the red / go faster option :)

    as long as ascetics doesnt effect performance all the power to them , beamforming has made it far better and so those monolith antennas arnt so much needed any more , esp in these mesh type units

    Dear colleagues,

    As you might already know the Google Wifi mesh system has support for the 802.11mc (Round Travel Time / Fine Time Measurement) protocol that allows to measure the distance between a terminal (i.e. smartphone such as Google Pixel 2) and the router. The Google WiFi features the Qualcomm IPQ4108 which is the earlier version of the IPQ4019 chipset, which is the one being shipped within the Linksys Velop.

    Does anyone has tried the 802.11mc RTT feature with this WiFi Mess system?

    Many thanks!

    Miquel
