Configure google wifi

Hello
I just bought google wifi.
I've watched your configuration and connection tutorial in French.
The installation looks easy. I have a gmail account. I have downloaded the google home application.

My question: can we connect the rj45 cable to my lan network?

How have you connected up the main/ master/ primary Nest Wifi puck, what's in front of it? It should be:

  • Internet
  • Modem in bridge mode to avoid double NAT
  • Primary Nest Wifi WAN port
  • Eventual ethernet connected LAN devices behind primary Nest Wifi puck LAN port.

See following for how to add more LAN ports with an unmanaged switch:


I don't work for Google. I'm here to help and learn more.

Hi everyone,

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.

Thanks,

I thank you for your answers and support.

I need to test the google wifi kiosks set up, today Wednesday Oct 5th.

Here is how I will proceed...
On my RJ 45 LAN socket. I will plug in the main router to configure it (it will be in the middle of the workspace). Once the configuration is done, I will do the configuration operations for the two satellites.

I will keep you informed of the result soon.
Thanks again to you 🙂

Hello to all,
I thank you again for your patience and for your advice.

Report of the installation.
Today, I have configured my installation and it works perfectly.
The mesh test shows an "excellent connection".

The main router is connected to an ethernet hub and the satellites are well connected.
Thanks to all.
