Step-By-Step Procedures to Connect a Nest Router as an Access Point

Can someone provider the step-by-step procedures from Google Home to add a new Router as an Access Point to an existing Network.  I have tried everyone and keeps giving me the "Something Went Wrong".  I even attempted to add the device as a Point (even though its a router).  This can be done correct?

Adding to this, I purchased a Nest Router and Point and I can not connect the Point to my Mesh Network either.

Someone posted the same question over at Reddit. Link .

"The only way Google home app recognizes the second mesh router if you only have 1 Ethernet access point is to hard line it into the first router, then set it up via the Google home app, then unplug the second router and move it to where you want it."

Thank you!! Assuming it will treat it as an Access Point wherever I move it - correct?

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.
Thanks

That's exactly correct!
