I am a new user in Sylvan Park. I use a Engenious EOC-2610 Wireless Client to access the Google Wifi node. The unit is inside the house, and all my internet devices work under that router. I typically get between 1 and 3mbs down (avg 1.5) and between 0.5 to 1.5 mbs up (avg 1.0)

I am very satisfied with what I am getting.

Thanks Google.
