Nest router + point behind another router

Community Member


I have a summer house where my wifi comes from neighbor house router via Ubiquiti Loco M5 (wireless bridge).

Is it possible to set up a mesh with Router+point in my house? Or does the Nest router have to be in router mode?

A Nest Wifi router can also be used as a wireless mesh point. In fact thats what many do, including me, to get better performance on the wireless. AC2200 vs. AC1200.

Just make sure it's added as a point to an existing Google Home home network.

I don't work for Google.

Ok, that is my issue. The wireless bridge delivered by my Loco comes from another modem/router already providing the router function, so I need AP only. I was hoping I could create a mesh in my summer house to get better coverage. But then Google Nest may not be what I need?
