C6900 Modem Mode for Google Wifi

 I recenly purchased the Google Wifi system but it doesn't have any ether ports on the hub.  Should I just use the ports on the modem after setting it into Router only mode or do I need to go out and purchase a network switch to plug into the Google Wifi? 

 

I have not setup the Google Wifi yet since I have my Arlo hub, Xbox, and FireTV connected to the C6900 currently.

Sonmething to ask Google about. Check the user manual for there product. 

 

If it has a built in router already, you may want to put the C series modem in to modem only mode. As it already has built in router and wifi.

I ended up setting everything up yesterday and the ports on the C series no longer function after putting it into modem mode so I had to go out and buy a switch.

Yes that is by design. 

So you'll need to put a switch behind the Google router if more ports are needed. 

 

Good Luck.
