Google WiFi and wired connection

Community Member

Good morning

I have the Google Wi-Fi and am getting ready to install. I want to place one of the "pucks" about 75 feet from the main puck via an ethernet cable. Can I just plug an ethernet cable into the "LAN" port on the main plug and the other end into the "WEB" port on the satellite puck or do I need to do something else. I would initially configure all 3 pucks via Wi-Fi first to ensure that a single SSID name is used.

Hello @Robby9876 

If you set them up first relatively close to the primary/main unit via WiFi (as you have planned), you should then be able to connect one of the secondaries back to the primary's LAN Ethernet port using either one of the ports on the secondary (just pick one and stick with it, though). No other configuration is required. I would recommend testing this one step at a time, perhaps using a shorter Ethernet cable first and then connecting the longer one. I would also consider picking up at least one inexpensive, unmanaged Ethernet switch. Connect that to the primary's LAN Ethernet port and then connect the long Ethernet cable to the switch. If the other end of the cable is in another building, put another inexpensive Ethernet switch on the other end of that cable just for increased electrical isolation (replacing switches is less expensive than replacing access points/routers). This can also help to provide more Ethernet ports to connect other devices in your home (TVs in particular benefit from this, but gaming consoles, computers, printers, etc. will as well).



Will see how good it is with Wi-Fi first and if required will attempt via ethernet

Thanks for the quick reply
