Google Wifi isn’t a bad looking router (or three) on its own, and it’s pretty easy to stick it anywhere in your house without offending anyone. However, every home is different and you might want something a little more elegant and organized than just plonking a node down on a window sill. Thanks to its popularity and the fact it’s a pretty simple shape, there are plenty of options out there for mounting the Google Wifi to a wall or even a ceiling.
If you want your router flush with your power plug, this mount is for you. You can wrap and hide the power cable around the inside of the mount so it isn’t seen, and the weight of the router is easily supported by the power plug and your wall. Finally, there’s an opening at the bottom for plugging in an Ethernet cable.
This mount makes it super easy to hang your router on a wall or ceiling, and you can still route in an Ethernet cable to hard-wire devices. The mount comes in a single-, two- or three-pack, and it includes screws for installation.
This product is great for your Google Wifi, but also for other small gadgets weighing less than 10 pounds. There’s a small channel at the back of the shelf where you can route your power and Ethernet cables, and installing the shelf is as easy as unscrewing your existing wall plate and screwing on the new one.
This may be the most minimal option of this list: you just screw the mount on the wall, and sort of drop the Google Wifi in. You also get a channel for routing the power cable, and enough clearance for Ethernet cables. The screws and drywall sockets you need are included, and the kit comes in single-, two- and three-packs.
This is a middle step between the more minimal options and the full brackets. The mount attaches to your wall with four screws, and you can organize the power and Ethernet cables easily. Your router just rests on the shelf, so there’s nothing obstructing it. The kit comes in single-, two- and three-packs.
Another minimal option is this mount from Anco. Again, you screw the mount itself on the wall, then the router drops on top. There aren’t any cable management options on the mount itself, so this would be a better fit for some who can route power and Ethernet through their wall. This mount is available in a single-, two- and three-pack.
If you want your router to be as secure as it possibly can be, this mount is for you. Again, there aren’t any cable management options on the mount itself, so you’ll want to measure your cables to keep them from looking sloppy on your wall.
An elegant solution
The Google Wifi isn’t the ugliest router out there, but sometimes you just want it out of the way, and that’s where mounts come in. Luckily, Google Wifi modules are small enough to hide on any shelf or desk, but you can also affordably mount them to your wall near a convenient outlet if that fits better in a particular room or space in your home.
Our top pick is the Dot Genie Google Wifi Outlet Holder which requires no screws for set up, sits flush below your power outlet on the wall, and offers built-in cord management so you don’t have unsightly wires dangling down your wall.
All of these mounts are great options for mounting the Google Wifi, but we’ll shout out the ECHOGEAR Outlet Shelf, since it can also be used for another gadget if need be and it’s really easy to install.
