AT&T WiFi Calling and Google WiFi Don’t Work, but here’s the fix

My chat with Google support was thorough and a lot of work on my side, but it didn’t solve anything.

  1. While most folks report that setup is a breeze, it relies on a cell connection for easy setup. As I mentioned, I don’t have a cell connection, so setup was definitely trickier. I wanted to use the same network name as before to avoid reconfiguring a dozen or more devices, and that made setup even more complicated.
  2. Content filtering is only available with an eero plus subscription. This is a real bummer for anyone with a family as you will almost certainly want to enable safe browsing. Google’s content filtering is free and easy to configure. On the plus side (no pun intended) the eero plus subscription comes with several added services included, the best of which is a family account with 1Password. Oh, and did I mention ad blocking at the router level? Pretty sweet.
  3. OK, there are really only two downsides and the second one barely qualifies as a downside. So, really, you should just buy the darn thing.
