Can WiFi Repeater Connect to Google Nest Set Up?
Google Nest WiFi device is a mesh router which has three nodes. One of these nodes act as the router and other nodes connect to the main node of the mesh system. The Nest device gives boost to the WiFi signals that the main Nest router nods transforms.
But some people have a Google nest WiFi setup related question. They ask that can they can add a range extender or WiFi repeater to their Google nest set up in home.
Here in this informative blog we will give you answer of above asked question. We will give you full explanation whether the conclusion has come ‘cannot be connected’ or ‘can make a connection’. So, let’s start this blog quickly.
Working: Google Nest Set Up Network
There is simple working of the Google nest WiFi system. You just have to connect it with your modem via Ethernet cable and adjust its settings to use it at its full potentials.
You have to connect a single node to the modem to, you can choose any. It will work just as a WiFi router. The modem is a device that sends the signals to router physically. Then the router converts these modem signals to WiFi signals. With the help of these wireless signals of router, you can able to use internet services in your laptop or phone.
But routers have limited WiFi signal reach, so people use range extender and signal repeaters to make the signals boosts and extend in their house. Wireless-N Wifi repeater setup and Netgear Wifi extender setup connects with the router easily and expands its WiFi range.
Google nest WiFi is a mesh system that provides three nodes, in which one connects with the modem and other two nodes links with the main router node. These other nodes help to boost and extend the WiFi signals in your house.
Can Repeater Link with Google Nest Set Up?
Mesh systems and WiFi signal repeaters both are used to boost the WiFi network signals. Repeaters mainly connect with single WiFi routers to expand the WiFi coverage, but at the other hand mesh WiFi systems works both of network devices (router and repeater). Google Nest WiFi is one of those mesh systems.
The answer of the above asked question is ‘NO’. You can’t connect any WiFi extender to a mesh system. But, if you have a simple and single router of any brand then you can easily complete the WiFi repeater setup via any of your internet devices.
Why You Can’t Link Repeater to Google nest?
There are several reasons why you can’t connect WiFi signal repeater to already completed Google nest set up. Let’s list them up one by one down here.
Mesh Router Are Boosters
Some brands distribute mesh routers worldwide, because it provides two network devices qualities to the users. It is a router as well as booster or repeater. So, if you want to link a repeater to the mesh systems then, the connection will be failed, and you will not able to connect your internet devices to your home network.
Repeaters Can Link to Routers Only
You can connect a WiFi repeater to a single router, which have Ethernet port and WPS button to network devices wirelessly. You just have to use network cable to connect with the router. but mesh router system won’t have WPS button or an extra Ethernet port for other network device connection.
Can’t Manage Both Interface Settings
Both the networking devices provide web interface utilities to configure settings and networks. But, you can’t able to log in to the both device’s interface at the same time.
If you want to complete WiFi repeater setup on mobile then you have to link it with extender. If you want to complete Google Nest set up then you must connect you internet device to it. So, you can’t access the interface of both the network devices.
Now, we have to share the conclusion of this blog. The simple and straight answer to the question (Can WiFi Repeater Connect to Google Nest Set Up) is NO. You cannot connect any repeater, extender or booster to already completed Google nest set up. Hope, you have understood why both the mentioned networking devices can’t be linked together.
