Fios (1gb) + Google wifi/Mesh - GB Switch

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?

thank you!

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.
