Cellular hot spot

Community Member

Will the google home nest router connect to the internet using a cellular hot spot that stays at home all the time?

Hello @HughT 

The Nest WiFi Router needs to connect to the internet through an Ethernet (wire) connection. If your cellular hot spot device has an Ethernet port, a Nest WiFi Router might work. If not, then you would need another piece of hardware to act as a WiFi client (to the hotspot) that does have an Ethernet port the Nest WiFi Router could use. I don't think I'd recommend that configuration for anything other than a temporary situation.

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.
