I’m using the T-Mobile gateway as a secondary Internet connection at home. Primary Internet is with the cable company, and the T-Mobile appliance and cable modem are configured as a gateway group on my pfSense firewall. I use Google access points for home WiFi. My primary WiFi network uses two Google access points in a mesh configuration. Unfortunately the T-Mobile device cannot be configured for bridge mode. I’ve disabled the T-Mobile WiFi and connected it to my pfSense appliance on an Ethernet port. As a result, I do have a bit of NAT madness going on. Direct WiFi speed through my T-Mobile gateway to the Internet clocks in at around 100Mbps, but traffic through my pfSense drops down to ~ 40Mbps. (I tested direct WiFi through T-Mobile before disabling it.) Though the T-Mobile gateway is configured as my failover Internet connection, your question got me wondering about external Plex access. I like to access Plex from hotels when my family is on vacation, but had not tested it
SETTING UP GOOGLE NEST WIFI POINTS WITH T-MOBILE HOME INTERNET Example 1: You had Google Nest Wifi Points setup with a modem from another provider. The Google Wifi point plugged into the old modem is the “router” point and all other wifi points are “bridge” points. Since T-Mobile is a “gateway” that means it’s a modem and router all-in-one. Make sure the wifi point you plug into the T-Mobile gateway is the “router” point (the point that was plugged into your old modem), not one of the “bridge” points. Otherwise you’ll have to RESET all wifi points in the mesh just like you had to do when you first setup your Google mesh. Use the Google Home app if you need to find which point is your Google wifi “router” point. Make sure that your T-mobile gateway network name is DIFFERENT from your Google mesh network name. The T-mobile gateway is also wireless and if both your gateway and mesh networks have the same network name then you’ll have problems (DOUBLE NAT) with devices and apps becau
