Title: Google WiFi
Post by: walkerx on March 07, 2019, 03:16:02 pm

I'm hopefully setting up a google wifi system for home (i was using a netgear orbi, but returned as constant failures with the satellites), but unlike the orbi, google recommends leaving the device in default router mode and not bridge mode otherwise mesh will not work.

I can't wire every unit up so need to get the mesh side working, but this will cause the wifi to be double natted. This isn't too bad for devices accessing the internet that won't be gaming, but how will i get these devices to then see my networked devices.

 Google recommends,  setting router into bridge mode, then connecting the google wifi, then any switch after it, but if set to bridge mode how easy is it to configure this and wouldn't it then eliminate the need for opnsense?
