Hi - just switched from Optimum and am really happy with everything about Fios! I really like to hardwire everything if I can but I was hoping to get some advice if I'm doing this most efficiently. In short, I'm wondering if I should:
a) go from the Verizon router to Google Nest puck (2200) to a GB switch; or
b) go from the Verizon router to the GB switch to the Google puck (2200).
Here are some more details.
- Verizon Fios Router/modem - Gb service and it's one of those new white towers which I believe is WiFi 6 compatible (triple play)
- 5 Google Mesh pucks (3-2200s and 2-1200s); 2200 is the main router
- TP-Link 8-port GB Switch (TL-SG1008D)
I like to hardwire to the devices in close proximity (maybe this is overkill)...TiVo Vox Bolt = Sony 930E Android TV + Firestick + 3 more devices.
I'm wondering if you had any advice...
- what would be the optimal configuration
- Should I disable the Verizon wifi network and just use my Google network?
- anything else I should consider?
The way you set them up looks fine. Google Nest WiFi is difficult to configure and lacks documentation. Verizon equipment is nicer in terms of configurability.
You have 5 packs? You must have paid over $500? For this large scale, it is better to go with Cisco solutions or Aruba Networks.
