Wifi issue

Do you have to have internet for the device or does it come with built in wifi??

Hello @Topgun424 

Assuming you're asking about the Google WiFi or Nest WiFi Router products, they require an existing internet connection of some kind. It must provide an Ethernet (wired) connection to the first Google/Nest WiFi unit that is set up. They will then provide WiFi connectivity to client devices in your home, and can provide wired connectivity through another Ethernet port. I hope this answers your question, but if you have more, feel free to ask here.

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.
