2 routers for nest home connection

Community Member

I currently have a google nest wifi system with my 4g router and I'm soon to get a starlink internet router also.
My question is it possible to have 2 routers both providing connection to the internet (one dominate and other is backup). 
Is it as simple as just connecting another lan cable into the google nest wifi unit?

Hello @Quinn 

No, this is not something the Google / Nest WiFi systems can do on their own. You may be able to find a third party router that can do this, but it will not be inexpensive. It would need to be connected to both of your internet services and then Google / Nest WiFi would be connected to it.

Hi, Quinn.

I just wanted to follow up and see if you saw MichaelP's response and to find out if there's anything else we can do for you here. If you still need help, just let us know.

Hi, everyone.

As we haven't had any activity here recently I'm going to go ahead and close the thread. If you have more to add, feel free to start a new discussion.
