Altice DVRs use a WPS button to pair to their Altice One Gateway (all in one modem / router that's terrible). I installed my own modem and Nest Wifi, but don't have the WPS function on the Nest router. Any recommendation on how to pair the Altice Mini DVR's? Thanks.

If the only way to hook them up to your wifi network is push button WPS then it gets complicated...WPS is pretty old technology now and considered very insecure. I'd be yelling at the provider (ok maybe don't yell at the call centre staff, it's not their fault!) about still giving out devices needing WPS.
BUT...if you have to do it...you likely need to disconnect your Nest Wifi and put the Altice modem/router back in for a bit...give it the same wifi name (SSID) and password as you want to use on Nest wifi...then use WPS to hook up your mini boxes. Once they're working, get rid of the Altice router and put your Nest wifi back in, the boxes should reconnect using their saved wifi name/password.

I just wanted to jump in real fast to see if you saw Juzdu's reply and to see if you still needed some help on this or if you were able to get it sorted out. If you are still needing some help, just let us know and we'll be happy to continue helping.

I wanted to check in once more to see if you were still needing some help on this or if you were all set. Let us know if you still needed some help.

Just one quick final check in here since activity has slowed down. We'll be locking the thread in the next 24 hours, but if you still need help, I would be happy to keep it open. If there's more we can do, just let me know.

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.
