I switched my internet service from cable to fiber. After this change, I found that I could no longer watch my local TV channels on YouTubeTV (when I accessed my YouTubeTV account on a laptop, YouTubeTV asked if I was moving or if this "trip" is temporary - it thought I had left my home area). When I checked whatismyipaddress.com, it showed I was located in a city about an hour to my west, which was why I could no longer watch my local channels. Apparently the solution for this is to get a static ip address from my fiber internet company. I received the static ip info, but now I can't seem to make the change in Google Home. I went into Google Home Settings -> Nest WiFi -> Advanced Networking -> WAN Connection. Currently it is on DHCP and there is a message that these settings cannot be edited right now. The "Show me how" link says to take the hub offline by removing the ethernet cable and ensure the device (iPad) is still connected to the WiFi network. I tried this and the light on the Hub started flashing yellow and it said it should, as far as I could tell I was still connected to the WiFi network, but now I couldn't even access the Nest Wifi settings.
Any suggestions on how to change my Google Home Nest hub to use a static ip address?
Sorry for not replying sooner. I had tried replying to the email I received about your note but found out I'm not allowed to do that. I was having other issues with MetroNet as well, couldn't get any communication from them and I ended up switching back to Spectrum internet so I no longer have any of the issues I was having with MetroNet. Thanks for checking in with me.
Chiming in to check if you still have questions about this? As an additional info, you may check these recommended network settings to successfully set up the Google Nest Hub to your network.
Configuring your Router Settings
Enable: Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), multicast, Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP)
Disable: AP/client isolation, virtual private networks (VPNs), proxy servers, IGMP Proxy. VPNs and proxy servers should be disabled on your computer as well (if applicable).
Here's some additional information to keep in mind:
Hope this helps.
Sorry for not replying sooner. I was having other issues with MetroNet as well and couldn't get any communication from MetroNet's customer service so I ended up switching back to Spectrum internet. I no longer have any of the issues I was having with MetroNet, which was good because we had severe storms approaching our area the last couple days so it was nice to have my local channels again. Thanks for your time and trouble.
