When it is properly connected, the LED on the front of the Network Box lights up solid blue. If the LED does not light up solid blue about 2 minutes after being connected to power, contact Google Fiber customer support.
The Network Box serves as a router, which provides Internet service for your home networks. You can connect computers and other devices to the Network Box using Ethernet cables or the wireless networks it provides. A maximum of four devices can be wired to the Network Box using Ethernet cables.
If you want to add more wired devices, you can connect a gigabit Ethernet switch. Connecting directly to the Network Box provides the fastest speeds on your network.
The Network Box supports a maximum of 16 wireless devices. As the number of connected devices approaches 16, however, performance degrades dramatically.
