Starlink Gen 2 and Google Nest

We have the gen 2 Starlink (rectangular dish) and the ethernet adapter. I have tried putting Starlink into Bridge mode and plugging in my existing Google WiFi. The lights on the Google turn white, indicating it is seeing a signal, but I am not getting WiFi. 

Another post suggested starting a new Google Wifi... I don't want to do that as all my home devices are paired to the existing system. That post has been locked and it was never clarified if that is the only solution to make it work.

I can get the Starlink mesh, but since I already own Google, I want to try and make it work first. Thanks.

History shows that changing ISP (internet service provider) often requires you to set up the Google Wifi network from scratch. If you reuse network name (SSID) and password your devices should reconnect automatically, at least.

It requires an internet connection to be managed from the Google Home app. So it's kind of a catch 22 there.

So, first factory reset:

Then set up:

Is my advice at least.


I don't work for Google. I'm here to help and learn more.
