I have a TPG HFC connection with a Arris CM8200 modem and a TP-link 1600v Router.
I purchased the lastest Google Nest product which is a router and mesh device. I understand that the Google Nest router does not support VLAN, which is an element of the HFC modem.
Is there a work around that will allow me to use the the Google Nest product, or have I bought an expensive paperweight?
Please note this question is specific to the google NEST product released 8/19, NOT the earlier google WIFI product.
SImply turn off the wifi on the TP-Link modem, then connect an ethernet cable from the WAN port on the Nest router to a LAN port on the TP-Link. This post covers the process in more detail (is for a Google Wifi but the process will still be the same).
For what it's worth, this is what I have done and I am using a Google Wifi setup with an HFC connection with no issues.
This only worked temporarlily for me. Eventually I got errors from Google about multiple DHCP servers. I tried turning DHCP off on the TPLink and lost my connection comp;etely. TPG support got me to do a factory reset on the TPLink and put it in bridge mode with pppoe, but that doesn't work with Google Nest. I still don't know what is wrong. Looks like I might have to trash the Google Nest. $350 odd up in smoke...
