I recently purchased the Google Nest Wifi Pro and have it working, although two of the points have a poor connection. Is it possible to wire those points into my network so that the router and the two points are all hard-wired? I have network ports in those rooms but when I've tried to connect them to the network the entire network seems to crash.
I have the following equipment:
NETGEAR 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Plus Switch (GSS116E) that takes all the Ethernet from my wired rooms and connects it to the 10GELAN port on the Verizon FIOS CR1900A Gateway 2022 Router. My 10GEWAN port is connected to the Verizon ONT.
I'd love to be able to wire the points to the Switch as well so that I have the best WiFi possible at all three locations, vs. great at the point and weak at the other two.
Thanks in advance!
Ethernet between the pucks instead of wireless is possible, this is known as "wired backhaul".
But the order of which you connect the devices are important.
First you'll have the modem, preferably in bridge mode to avoid double NAT:
Then the first/ main Nest Wifi Pro unit. Then a unmanaged switch without any fancy features like loop detection/ prevention.
Then you connect other wired devices to the switch, like the two other Nest Wifi Pro units.
