A:AnswerI have the same question and the answer should be YES. On the Nest Wifi product page, it does say that the Nest Wifi is "compatible" with Google Wifi. That could just mean though that only the Nest Wifi Points are compatible with the Google Wifi Router. I am hoping that I can use my existing Google Wifi router as an extender and replace it with the Nest Wifi router since it has a more powerful antenna.
A:AnswerYes I have 4 nest wifi points and 3 google wifi points and it works although the google home software sucks is buggy and no where near as good as google wifi app. Meshdownload performance is better in mixed network than with Google wifi points alone.
A:AnswerYes - there are two ports on the Nest Router - a WAN port for the modem to connect to, and a LAN port for hardwiring a device. Hardwiring more than one device will require a network switch, but those are relatively cheap (I have a 5 port switch connected to the LAN port for all of my home theater electronics)
One thing to note, if you purchase a second router to use in place of an access point, both the WAN and LAN ports on it will function as LAN ports. Good to have if you need to connect up devices that are far away from the modem (ex. My Wife’s desktop does not have WiFi built in, so we set up the second router at her desk and ran the hardwire from the router to the PC - works great)
A:AnswerAbout the basement it's not the most ideal place for a router and my nest has very poor performance more than 6 inches away from the device. My old Netgear nighthawk I could connect to my Wi-Fi a block away from my house.
A:AnswerYes, Nest Wifi can work with your AT&T modem/router combo. We recommend putting your combo in Bridge mode to avoid a Double NAT as it may cause connection issues due to the creation of 2 private networks. You can check out this support article for more information on Bridge mode and Double NAT: https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/6240987
A:AnswerThere is no monthly fee to use Nest Wifi mesh system, it's just a one-time purchase. However, you will need internet connection from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

A:AnswerYes it can be use as a travel router, but I wouldn’t recommend it. As a repeater, not so great. I bought two and was trying to do a hard wire repeater instead of wireless, Even with the second router connected to Ethernet it constantly reverted to add the second router as a mesh network, you will loose a lot of speed depending on what you’re paying.
