Use Google Wifi with Smart Wifi

How can I use the Google Wifi as the mesh network along with the new Starhub's Smart Wifi as the router?

 

I am using only 1Gb home broadband which comes along with only 1 set of Smart Wifi, while I have 3 sets of Google Wifi. It feel so wasted to not being able to use them, plus, no mesh network to reach each corner of the house.

Suggest you use the Google WiFi as your main setup. Then setup the Nokia Beacons in bridge mode. See this for steps using the web UI:

 

  1. Connect to your Nokia WiFi network (or connect your laptop to your root Nokia WiFi Beacon with an Ethernet cable)
  2. Under the Network tab, select MESH on the left side of the web page.
  3. Select the check box Enable Bridge Mode to enable or disable bridge mode.
  4. Click the Reboot button in the pop-up window.

Hi, will this setup be able to access the free-to-air channels on the Starhub TV+ box?
