Hi, there is so much conflicting information out there mixed up with the current generation of starlink (square) vs the original (round) one. I’ve tried multiple ways of getting my AC1200 Nests to work to no avail. I have the original round starlink dish.
I am unable to bridge the starlink router and plug the nest directly into the Aux port and get nest to work, the nest is unable to find an internet connection via google home app setup. There doesn’t appear to be any settings in the starlink app/settings to bridge, I’ve tried numerous ways to do this. This is with Starlink latest software as of 10/22/2022. My understanding was that this functionality was available in the past but was removed with newer software.
I have also tried simply plugging in the Ethernet cable directly from the nest to the Starlink power adapter (removing the Starlink router entirely). The nest does not find a network.
Question: do I need to buy a separate router in addition to the nests that is compatible with the Starlink dish power adapter that allows bridging to get this to work? If so, do you have a recommendation?
I have a hard time believing I am the only one with this problem.
Seems bridge mode is named "bypass" in Starlink.
As this is more of a Starlink question that anything, I'll attach som search results that might help. First, all Nest Wifi communities I know about (this and two reddit groups), searching for "starlink":
Then the starlink reddit community, searching for "google wifi" and "nest wifi":
Seems this thread in particular discusses your problem?
The network with the nests are now working correctly, I added in additional router to the Starlink router aux output then wired up the nest via LAN through that. My understanding is that it has something to do with the need for a static IP address.
I'm happy to see things are working well for you and I appreciate you letting us know what turned out to be the fix. It's always good to see what clears things up. Before marking this as resolved, I wanted to check in and see if there was anything else you might need. If there's more you need, just let me know.
