Even though my mesh network has "great connection," the speeds are slow when I am using the further nest point.
I am wondering if I can use 3 Nest Routers (1 as the main router, 2 as points) and connect 2 of the routers via ethernet to a wall ethernet port.
To clarify, I am not looking to connect router 1 to router 2 with an ethernet cable. I am wondering if I can connect router 2 or 3 to a wall ethernet port, and if that would make the wifi speed faster.
Any help would be super appreciated 🙂 Thank you!
What is at the other end of the wall ethernet ports?
For correct operation, your main router should be plugged into your modem (or modem/router combo), and additional routers should be connected downstream of your main router. So to hardwire your devices you'll either need to daisy chain them, or install a non-managed switch downstream of your main router, connecting your additional routers to the switch.
Any Ethernet connection is going to have better speeds than a Wifi connection. By using the wall Ethernet ports, you are essentially connecting them with an Ethernet cable, if they are interconnected via a switch.
In general, follow the suggestions in @David_K 's link.
Thanks for the input, davidking and PatrickP_Viking.
