Greetings,

 

I am looking into purchasing Google WiFi for the wifi needs of my home. I'd like to still maintain the benefits of the Netduma for my gaming/streaming. Is this possible? Would I just hook the NetDuma up to a Google Wifi "hotspot" and then plug my console/gaming PC into the NetDuma?

 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Hi Keys - you have two options. Modem -> R1 -> Google WiFi or Modem -> Google WiFi -> R1

The advantage of the first option is all traffic goes through the R1, so you can take advantage of the congestion control.

But if you just want to use the Geo-Filter then you could go with second option with the console connected to the R1. Just remember the R1 would need to be wired into the Google WiFi

Thank you for the information. Are there any settings within either the R1 or Google WiFi that I'd need to change?

 

Thank you for responding so quickly!

For the R1, no. If should be fine. If you are getting a moderate NAT let us know but I expect it’ll be ok. 

 

I shouldnt think youll need to change anything on Google WiFi either
