Chromebook now unable to connect to Nest Wifi

Community Member

Has anyone experienced new connectivity issues from Chromebooks to Nest Wi-Fi?

  My Chromebook is no longer able to access internet via Nest Wi-Fi. This is a recent problem and seems like it could potentially be related to a recent update (just speculating).  It can connect to the Nest Wi-Fi but no internet is available.  All other devices work fine when connected to Nest Wi-Fi (phones, laptops, Xboxes, etc). The Chromebook can successfully connect to the internet when using a separate Wi-Fi hotspot off my phone. It only has a problem accessing the internet when connected to Nest Wi-Fi. I have already power washed the Chromebook multiple times.  Each time, I connect to the Nest Wi-Fi but it freezes on the "Loading..." screen unable to download any updates... I have to power wash again and connect to my phone's hotspot where it updates correctly.

HP Chromebook Model 14-db0020nr

Hi rsknowles,


Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry to hear that you're having an issue with accessing internet using your Chromebook. I see that you already tried some troubleshooting steps to resolve this. To isolate the issue, could you also try rebooting your Google WiFi router?


Let us know how it goes.




Thanks Edward.  I also called Google Support who recommended restarting the router which worked.  I had just restarted it a few days prior so hopefully this last one will stick.  I appreciate the follow-up.
