Wifi routers

Community Member

Hi, I have Google wifi and have multiple ones around the house. My problem is that I was trying to use virtual desktop to play pc vr wirelessly but it says I'm am connected to a different network because of the multiple points. How do I change which point for wifi I am connected to.

You should not need to connect client devices to the same physical Nest Wifi unit in order for the client devices to reach each other, because client devices will be on the same LAN/subnet no matter what physical Nest Wifi unit they are connected to.

This sounds more like a double NAT problem: Do you run double NAT, as in a router or multimodem in front of the first/main Nest Wifi unit, that also acts as a router and access point?

If yes: Make sure all devices are connected downstream from the first/main Nest Wifi unit, and preferably put any box in front of it in bridge mode, sometimes called bypass mode. If you need more LAN ports, add an unmanaged switch:

I don't work for Google.
