Set a custom LAN IP

If you have a complex network configuration, consider setting up a custom LAN IP range in the Google Wifi app. This simple step will save you from having to reset or reconfigure each device in your home to work with your Google Nest Wifi or Google Wifi mesh network, if the devices have static IP addresses.

Once you set up a custom LAN IP range, we'll automatically migrate existing DHCP IP reservations and port forwarding rules to the new subnet.
