New google nest, can I add my old google wifi pods for better coverage

PeterD1

Did not get full coverage in our home with Google Wifi so I upgraded to Google Nest.  Still not great.  Wanted to see if I could add my Google Wifi pods to the system for better coverage.  No luck.  Do not have WPA.  Am I just out of luck?

Yes, you absolutely can do this (assuming it's Nest Wifi you have and not Nest Wifi Pro).

Use Nest Wifi and Google Wifi devices on the same network - Google Nest Help

Be aware that Google recommends a maximum of 5 Wifi devices in a single network. Adding more might be detrimental to Wifi performance.

If you're having coverage/signal problems, I'd also check you're following Google's placement guidelines. Ideally, you want your primary Wifi point to be as close as possible to the centre of your home.

Thank you, David.  We did a factory reset and the Google nest system took them and we have full house coverage now.  Great to be up.
