Need a new thermostat. I guess Goggle Wifi won't plan nice with my old C-50 one

So I have a 3M-50 thermostat. Yeah, I know it is at least 6 or 7 years old, but it plays nice with SmartThings, and Alexa and thus did what I needed. I just upgraded to Google Wifi and I am at wits end on getting it to work. only an old computer running Windows 7 even sees the Ad-Hoc network the thermostat wants to setup, and with Google Wifi, I can not separate the 2.4 and 5 networks. Won’t go into all the steps I have tried, so just a need a recomendation for a new Thermostat that will connect with Google Wifi without jumping thru hoops, works with SmartThings, and plays with Alexa. Any suggestions? Thanks

My ecobee does all of this.


Maybe just buy a really cheap seperate router or single network range extender? I’m you can find some for $20-30 if not cheaper.
