Google WIFI is not a modem. To use it, you’ll have to connect it to a modem with an Ethernet cable. This can be a standalone modem or a modem+router combo provided by your ISP - as others have already indicated, you should disable the router function of any modem+router by putting it in bridge mode and similarly disable the router's wireless access point. Then plug-in and setup Google WIFI and you're in business. Don’t have a modem? Some apartment buildings and dorms don’t require modems for broadband connections. If this is the case, you can plug the Google WIFI directly into the ethernet jackpoint on your wall.)

If your Spark modem has router functionality, it will need to be able to be configured to work in bridged mode (or pass through mode). This will essentially 'turn off' the router functionality, meaning that you would plug the master Google Wifi node into a LAN port on the modem/router. I have configured an Apple Airport Extreme in a similar way: Used the internet provider sourced combined modem/router as a modem only by enabling bridged mode and disabling the wireless access point, using the Airport Extreme as the Router and Wireless Access Point instead. The tech desk at PB Tech should be able to help you out with this.

Your normal ISP modem would work well on this. I am disabling my ISP modems WiFi abilities and using these three as wired solution across the home and the entire house is covered.
