Gruezi from freezing Zurich,
Unfortunately i was not able to find an answer yet, so any help in solving this is very much appreciated.
2 Nest Wifi Router
5 Nest Wifi Access Points
1 Wifi spread over two hard wired Routers with each router having several APs.
1 Wifi for house (router(1) + 3 APs) and Office (Router(2) + 2 APs
Setting up the mesh with 2 routers and 5 APs works, but unfortunately all the APs connect to the primary Router only and the second router is automatically set as an hard-wired AP. Which doesnt solve the problem of covering the office area which is out of wifi range.
I hope the drawing helps a bit
Unfortunately, the way mesh / 802.11s works, it does not travel through ethernet. Meaning, devices close to the 2nd wired nest wifi will still go to the primary nest wifi router for mesh connectivity.
The better slternative here would be to hardwire all devices. Or maybe actually not wiring the 2nd Nest Wifi router, if you don't want to buy more equipment.
There are other topics about this with more info, just search for "nest wifi 802.11s". 🙂 For instance:
