Nest cannot find ANY wifi network

Community Member

I  purchased a new construction house in April that had 2 Nest Es installed so they cannot be very old. They both worked fine for several months but about a month ago one completely stopped being able to recognize ANY wifi network. The other is still working fine. 

It looks like I'm having the same issues shown here:

I've tried all the troubleshooting steps here:

If you have done all the troubleshooting steps, and especially if the Nest E cannot see wifi networks, then yes I would suspect that the Wifi chip has gone dead, you will need to contact support to see about getting a replacement unit.
