Do I have to keep the google WiFi points plugged in at night when I’m sleeping? Or does unplugging and plugging it back again need a reconnect of the point to the WiFi? Because I unplugged it once and it wasn’t able to do anything before I had to manually go on the app and connect the point to my router again. Thanks!
It should survive a reboot/ taking out power. I'd try again just to be sure. But my 2nd wirelessly meshed Nest Wifi router survive reboots.
What exact device are we talking here?
Ok, thanks for the added info, fios_user.
What olavrb said still applies. Your WiFi points should retain all their settings after being unplugged or powered down and turned back on. Out of curiosity, is there a reason why you would want the WiFi point unplugged overnight? Let me know what you're looking to do there and we can probably come up with a better way to manage that for you.
As an update for you all, I wanted to let you know that we have a firmware update coming out now. Some people may have already received the update, but most will see it coming still. Everyone will have it before the end of April. If you receive that update and don't see an improvement in your issues here, please let me know and we can keep looking into things.
Just wish to report that the performance of my Nest WiFi point connection has improved considerably with the update. I've had it for a week now and the speed has gone up from 40-80% of the speed of my ISP speed to being consistently at 95-100% of my full ISP speed. My WiFi point has four brick walls between it and the router so this performance is impressive.
