First things first; I followed the setup guide for the Nest Wifi and for the most part it is working as expected.
First the configuration:
Firewalla WAN Port: Connected to my CenturyLink modem via DHCP. (No Issues)
The next port over (port 3) is connected to the WAN port on the google router. It's configured for DHCP and a dedicated subnet of 192.168.200.0/24. (Currently the WAN IP is showing "not available" on the google Wifi app, but initially it was showing a .200 address from the subnet above.)
The LAN on the google router is configured for 192.168.86.1/24 with a DHCP pool of .2 - .3. (And my two access points have claimed these addresses as expected.)
The next two Firewalla ports (1 and 2) are configured for DHCP on what is my home network (192.168.1.0/24) Port 2 is going back to the LAN interface on the google router and port 1 goes to my physical switch where my lab and various ethernet ports around the house are connected.
Everything that connects via WiFi is working as expected and pulling a 192.168.1.0/24 address.
Everything on the switch that has a static 192.168.1.0/24 address works as expected.
One of the workstations that is connected to the switch and is using DHCP is having intermittent issues. (It works fine with a static IP.) When on DHCP it intermittently tries to pull and address from the 192.168.86.1 DHCP server and fails to obtain an address. I don't under stand why it is going there and not to 192.168.1.1 like the other devices.
Anther odd thing: In Firewalla's Devices I see 70 devices. (As expected) But when I look at the device list on the Google Wifi app I only see 20. And there is no logical reason for the 20 devices I see. They are all WiFi devices, but most of the 70 devices are so it makes no sense why the nest app only sees these 20.
Is there something I am missing here?
