I'm new to NowTV and I want to use my Google wifi mesh system with the hub 2.
It has set up ok BUT devices keep losing connection to the internet. LAN connection ok but then can't get through the hub.
Ideally I'd have the hub in "modem mode" which I understand is not possible with the hub 2.
Any suggestions on what settings I need to change to make my internet connection more reliable?
Not being a broadband customer I can't give much advice. All I can think of for Wi-fi is to split the channels into 2.4 and 5ghz spectively.
Your Hub Two is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5 GHz). Splitting these bands to create 2 different Wi-Fi networks can help to improve the speed to your devices. Here’s how to do it:
As for the LAN or amending the router itself I would suggest having a nosy at this thread
Thanks for that.
I think (but I don't know for certain) that the issue lies within DHCP or similar. All devices use the Google wifi connection, not the hub directly but they intermittently lose the ability to talk to the outside world.
If the Hub had modem mode, it would not use its DHCP or DNS and that would all be down to the Google router. So I need to mimic that
Try turning off DHCP and DNS on the Google router, and letting the Hub2 handle these things exclusively.
No guarantees, and I don’t have either device here, but prior postings on related topics lead me to believe that this might work.
Worth a try, anyway.
