Installing a Google mesh WiFi puck in structured wire enclosure

Has anyone had success installing a Google mesh WiFi puck in a plastic structured wire enclosure? I would like to try to put the primary puck in a new home that has a Legrand On-Q enclosure in a central coat closet. Thoughts? Success stories? Bad idea?

In a coat closet, near a bunch of coat hangers that have metal in them ?  Not a good idea signal wise.  Your main puck should be centrally placed, with the points spread out around them , but unobstructed as possible to avoid any signal issues.

Hi, Xc86.
I just wanted to jump in real fast to see if you saw Ashepherdson's reply and to see if you still needed some help on this or if you were able to get it sorted out. If you are still needing some help, just let us know and we'll be happy to continue helping.

Perhaps I should simplify: Does anyone put a Google Mesh Wifi puck in a structured wiring cabinet (one made of plastic, centrally located, etc.)? Disregard coat closet comment; it's all about the structured wiring cabinet such as a Legrand On-Q.

Oh okay so you mean like a communications cabinet I actually have one of these in my home as well however it was poorly placed as it's in the basement and it's directly beside the circuit breaker and all of the channels with the coax cables ethernet cables and more so there was a lot of interference for me and I ended up moving it out of that cabinet quite quickly.  If your communications cabinet isn't located near your circuit breaker and lots of wiring that's active then you should be fine however if there is a lot of wiring in that cabinet you may run into the same issues I did.

Hi, everyone.
As we haven't had any activity here recently I'm going to go ahead and close the thread. If you have more to add, feel free to start a new discussion.
