My new smart-TV is not working well with wifi, it drops the signal often and I have been told that using an ethernet connection will fix that. Since I cannot move my router to where the TV is, I am considering a Google Mesh system. Would I be able to connect a Google Mesh system to my existing network, whereby one of the units can be placed near my TV so I can run a wire from the device to my TV, to stabilize the internet connection? From what I read in the initial specs, a "point" does not have an LAN port but maybe I can connect two nest "routers" (one being the main, which is hard-wired to my modem...and the other being wireless but acting as a "point" that can connect to my TV via ethernet cable). Would this work? Also, by setting up this way does it take my current router (provided by Optimum, my cable provider) out of play completely?
Any Nest Wifi and Google Wifi unit with ethernet ports can also be used as a secondary point. This is also mentioned in the setup guide:
Just don't get "Nest Wifi add-on point" without ethernet ports, and don't try to mix "Nest Wifi Pro" (Wi-Fi 6E triband) with the older "Nest Wifi" and "Google Wifi" (both Wi-Fi 5 dualband).
So, get 2x "Nest Wifi router" or 2x "Nest Wifi Peo" for instance. 🙂
Here are the specs on the different units:
