I rent out part of my home and want a separate mesh network in the rented space. Can I do this with two Google Nest Mesh networks or would I have to have a different brand of mesh in my rental area. Are the mesh AP's configured to a specific router or would they connect to whichever mesh router that they are closest to? I have a router that is hard wired to each space.
Rsgriener, as I understand it, and I am no expert, if you want two separate networks then ideally you need two routers; one to manage each network. Each network should have a unique name and password. The routers should be in parallel, not chained.
I dont know how the Home app would react to that though. I have no direct experience; you might need two instances of the Home app maybe?
