You’re familiar with Google Wifi (Nest Wifi) and its smooth, reliable wireless coverage.
It can be used to create multiple points that allow you to set up internet connectivity at various locations, such as your living room or basement, garage, office, or office. You may have to reset Google Wifi factory settings if it stops working, just like other technologies.
One example is when your mesh network loses connectivity to the internet. You can access the network but not the internet.
There are many solutions, including checking cables and connections, restarting your modem, or checking your configuration. Sometimes, however, the best solution is to reset Google Wifi.
When is it necessary to factory reset a Google Wifi router
You may need to reset your Google Wifi mesh in certain situations. If you need to:
- Make sure to fix offline points
- Your information should be deleted from the router or point
- Return your Google Wifi device
- Give or sell the device to someone else
- Set up your router and points to start anew
You can choose to factory reset your device. This will erase all of your settings and data, making it impossible for you to recover them. After you have completed the Google Wifi factory reboot, you can start over by setting up your router and points.
How do you reset the Google Wifi factory? Here’s how it works:
Google Wifi Factory Reset via the App
- Open Google Wifi app
- Tap the Settings icon
- Choose Network Settings
- Get Wifi points by tapping on the button
- Click on Factory Reset
- Tap on Factory Reset at bottom of the window.
- Pop-up windows will be displayed
- Click Continue
It may take up to five minutes for the reset process to begin. Once it is done, click on Done. Next, you will need to set up your device.
Notice: Google Wifi blinking means that the reset process is underway. Allow your device to wipe out the data for at least ten minutes. Google Wifi will display a solid blue signal that it is ready to go.
Use the reset button
Google Wifi’s back button is a reset button. It can be used to reset your device to factory settings. Here’s how it works:
- Hold the button down for 10 seconds
- It will flash yellow and then turn to solid yellow.
- Once it changes to solid yellow, release the button
- It can take up to ten minutes for the reset process to begin.
- Ensure that the power cord is securely in place during the entire process
After the reset, the yellow-colored light will change to pulse white.
Through the Google Home App
You can factory reset your device if you have already set it up in the Home app.
- Google Home app
- Tap on Wi-Fi points
- Tap the Settings icon
- Choose Factory Reset Wifi Point
- Tap on Factory Reset to confirm
If you’re using Google Next routers or Google Nest points, the steps described above will work.
Here’s a video that covers the steps in the previous step:
Google Wifi will be restarted, allowing you to resolve any issues, such as connectivity or network loss.
If this does not work, you can reset it to factory defaults. However, a factory reset will wipe all data and you will need to start over.
