I have a nest setup with one router and three points,
I have recently had issues with devices insisting on connecting to the router instead of the point even though i was in the same room as the point. It went so far as losing connection completely even though the Google Home app showed no mesh problems and I was close to the point. I was not able to force it to connect to the nearest / strongest wifi mesh point.
Resetting everything and recreating mesh seemed to help but only until I re-added my guest network. As I turned it on all the devices started either connecting to the router itself, or losing connection. Turning off and everything we've back to the suggest mesh point out could see.
Both my phone and Google picture frame showed the same behaviour.
Therefore I can't have a guest network.
What am I missing?
Thanks for posting — let's see what's going on.
A few questions: are you using a modem/router combo from your Internet service provider (ISP)? How many devices are dropping from the network? Also, do you have any paused devices?
Give these steps a try:
Let us know how it goes.
