Yes the google nest can be connected directly to Arris modem but if you want an phone service you will need to connect the Smart modem to an ethernet port on google nest.

If the Google nest WiFi was working connected to LAN port of Smart modem it should work connected to Arris modem with same settings. No need to reboot Arris modem.

Doing away with the Smart Modem 2 will remove the 4G Backup capability for your internet service as well, but if that is not a concern, the Nest connected to the NTD should be fine..

Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Re: Googel Nest Wifi connect to Arris NBN on HFC

works perfect - my local WIFI went from low 20's to the full 100MBS on the Google Nest vs the telstra smart modem ... yes no 4G back up - but i also have my mobile if needed for short term data.. 

 

I can also keep the old Telstra SM2 and plug it in IF needed ... 

anway anyone looking for a better solution with MESH then the Google NEST Wifi solution has been awesome
