I received the notice about On Hub no longer being supported after this year, so I bought a Google Nest WiFi router.
I'm wondering, does migrating mean I will have to setup all of my existing smart home devices again? Is there a way to simply replace the On Hub with the new Nest Router and keep the existing settings?
You will need to set the new Nest WiFi system up from scratch. However, if you use the same network name and shared password, all of your existing devices should reconnect without needing to be reconfigured. So, before taking down the old system, take note of any specific settings you want to preserve (like the network name and password, but also any IP address reservations and port forwarding you want to recreate).
I just wanted to jump in real fast to see if you saw MichaelP'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.
Just one quick final check in here since activity has slowed down. We'll be locking the thread in the next 24 hours, but if you still need help, I would be happy to keep it open. If there's more we can do, just let me know.
