I took the dive and bought google wifi from amazon. I think my setup is different from some of you as I still continued to use the Singtel default router for the TV. I connected 1x google wifi nodes to the router via Ethernet cable, so my setup goes like this:


Singtel ONT -> Singtel default router -> MioTV
-> Google Wifi

I understand that some of you wants to use the google wifi to replace the default singtel router, so this might not work for you.

I also logged in to the router admin page to disable the wifi of the singtel router. This way only google wifi nodes will transmit wifi. In other words, Singtel router is only for MioTV, google Wifi for wifi. During setup, I just put the same SSID and network key so that my devices can connect to the new wifi seamlessly.

Any other ways to set up from other users?

You did not buy 3x of Google Wifi to mesh up the wifi coverage for your house.

For your setup, try forcing the Google Wifi to work as Bridge, this will give you a flat network , all devices can see each other. It will still work when all wifi devices are under the Google Wifi network however this still face the Double NAT , not an issue but just spending time to do one more time of network address replacement by the main router.
You wont feel it indeed.

Hi HMAN could you share how do we force Google Wifi to work on bridge mode? I have a singtel ONT without MioTV. Sorry Super newbie.

You first need to setup Google Wifi as primary Wi-Fi point,
1.Connect the LAN cable between Google Wifi WAN port and main router LAN port.
2. Setup Google Wifi as primary Wi-Fi point with Google Wifi app
3. After setup complete, from within Google app find the settings to change to use bridge mode.

Any idea what’s the best solution to get away the Singtel router?

Managed switch? Which model is recommended for internet and mio tv.

Using ONT, you just need any 3rd party router which supports vlan tagging with priority setting

Using ONR, then sorry, you are only allow to use with AP. Unless you bang table.

Else look beyond Singtel.

Hi Bros,

Seek your advice...

Am using only SingTel for internet (no Mio TV), so can I just buy Google WiFi 3 pack and configure it as bridge mode?

Worried bout the double NAT issue

Leaning towards Google WiFi as its the most easy to setup imo....

Onr always have double nat issue. But can dmz your google wifi. Even if u were provided an ont, u still need a managed switch to strip the vlan10 tag anyway...
