Issues with Google Nest Router

Hi Everyone,

I just signed up to Virgin Media, Have setup my hub 3 router and I also got a Google Nest router which I've set up however it's not letting me add any additional google wifi hubs to start up a mesh I keep getting a error message that the wifi hub is not close to the Nest router. I've even tried putting it right next to the nest and have had no luck

I then tried connecting the google wifi directly to the next via ethernet which works but then when I disconnect it it loses the internet connection.

I tried ringing Virgin customer service who was asking me why I would even connect a 3rd party router to the hub3....
