Unable to connect with correct password

Community Member

We took two cameras new out of the box from about 2016 and can’t connect them. I keep getting the error code c104 but the password is definitely correct. Both cameras give the same error. 




If you are trying to install two Google Nest Outdoor Cameras purchased in 2016 for the first time, you might be encountering some incompatibility between the six-year-old firmware on the camera and the current version of the Google Nest app and the current version of the software on Google Nest's servers.

You might have to contact Support for assistance:

Hi folks,


Thanks for the help, @MplsCustomer.


@Dischick, thanks for posting. Did you try the suggestion MplsCustomer provided? You can also try to do this troubleshooting steps. 

  1. Quit the Nest app
  2. Check that your home Wi-Fi network is connected to the internet and the connection is working as expected. If other devices can’t connect to the internet, you’ll need to contact your internet service provider to restore service.

  • You can use a computer to visit a web page like and make sure it loads properly.
    On a phone
  • Or, turn on Airplane Mode on your phone. Then, turn on Wi-Fi on your phone while also keeping Airplane Mode on. Allow your device to connect to your home Wi-Fi network, and try to visit a web page like Make sure it loads properly. When you’re done testing, turn off Airplane Mode.
  1. Make sure your phone’s Wi-Fi is turned on, and that it’s connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Make sure you’re not trying to connect a 2.4 GHz-only camera to a 5 GHz network.
  3. Use the instructions in this article to restart your camera.
  4. Open the app again and set up your Nest camera on your phone.

Hey folks, 

We appreciate your help here, Juni and MplsCustomer.
Dischick, I wanted to follow up and see if you are still in need of any help. Please let me know if you are still having any concerns or questions from here, as I would be happy to take a closer look and assist you further.


Hi Mel I appreciate the prior answers but unfortunately they did not solve the problem. My husband reached out to google nest support and he was told that the problem is that we have spectrum internet and suggested he contact them to change a setting on our account. Spectrum had no idea what he was was referencing. At this point we no longer have any more avenues to pursue to get our nest cameras working.
