Thanks OP. Not sure why all the thumbs down. Comments anyone?

If you have Ethernet around your house and you're looking to put in a Google Nest mesh setup for tablets and other wireless devices, replacing the stock Google Nest access point pucks with these router pucks gets you ethernet connectivity, creating a dedicated hardwired backhaul; note that the new Google Nest mesh access point pucks lack ethernet jacks.

This router puck two-pack from Amazon is at least $40 less than buying two router pucks ala carte from Google directly. There are probably other brands of mesh setups with ethernet backhaul capability that cost less, but if you're married to Google Nest products, and you want ethernet backhaul, this is the way to go.

To be clear, the previous version of the Google's mesh hardware (called simply Google Wifi) included ethernet jacks on the access point pucks. Wish Google hadn't taken that feature away on the Nest product.
