Wireless router + Google Wifi?

Hello everyone, 

As I am quite "mobile", I don't use a wired router, but a wireless one with a sim card... Can I still connect the Google/Nest wifi with my wireless router at home? 

Thanks in advance

Hello @PedroSuarez 

Google/Nest WiFi requires an Ethernet connection to the internet. If your wireless router has an Ethernet port, you should be able to set up a Google WiFi or Nest WiFi system through it. If not, then the answer isn't exactly "no", but it's a lot more complicated, requires purchasing more equipment and configuring it carefully.
