I have the initial router setup and it is working great, but when I went to add a point for a mesh setup I am having issues.
When using the Google home app it goes thru all the steps and gets to a spot to name the network, but there is already a network I would just like to add this one to?
Do you enter the existing network name in there? It never asks to join an existing network?
Thank you for reaching out. I'm sorry to hear that you're having an issue with setting up your mesh point. I'd love to know more about this ‒ a few questions:

I’m not sure I understand all your questions so I’ll tell you what I did.
I set up first unit to incoming cable modem. Then attached to a switch by Ethernet cables.
then tried to follow Google home app for setup
there does not seem to be an option in the app, that I found, to ask if you are adding a node vs primary unit.
so the only option I could do was using same name as the primary. This of course confused devices previously setup on the original unit. Different IP addresses.
so I’ve disconnected the node unit, back to only getting the primary.
