Changing wifi network

Community Member

Hi & sorry. This is no about getting started. It is getting re-started.

I have been using Nest Cam with Camera for over a year. I just changed my router & need to establish my Nest Cam with Floodlight through the new router's wifi.

I use a Chromebook.

I have followed all advice I could find here & elsewhere on line. I have failed & wasted days.

I have performed a fresh re-set via the small button on the back of the camera. The chime has played with each re-set. I repeat this prior to each attempt.

I have blue tooth operating on the Chromebook.

I have the CHromebook up the ladder with me, 12 inches from the Nest Cam with Floodlight.

I have the Chromebook connected to the new wifi. The one I wish to connect the Nest Cam with Floodlight to.

I then My problem is that Home (the app) variously:

- does not find my Nest Cam with Floodlight

- does find it, invites me to enter the 6 digit device code, which I enter, & Home then hangs endlessly while "Trying to Connect"

- does find it,  invites me to enter the 6 digit device code, which I enter, does Try to Connect & detects my wifi inviting me to select it & enter a password, which I enter and then if says Try Again" but SSID & password are correct .

WHat do I do?

This is really challenging & I am being ultra careful at every step.

I have been through this process about 7 or 8 times in the last two hours, always getting one of the above results, but never compeleting the connection.

Can someone please tell me how to re-connect.

Thank you sincerely.
