I live in New Zealand.
For 3 years I’ve owned and enjoyed two Google home minis.
Today we decided to upgrade our wifi to a Google nest mesh.
The Google home minis will not connect to the new Google wifi. An error comes up saying they’re not manufactured in this country.
But if I turn the wifi back on, on our old router - I can connect the minis and they work fine. I’ve tried a factory reset on the minis.
It’s real frustrating!
Wifi has different regulations/ rules in different parts of the world. It's about things like what frequencies can be used, how strong a signal can you broadcast.
Combine this with the fact that you can't manually control what Wi-Fi channels or channel width to use on Nest Wifi, you might get compatibility issues with devices not bought for the same region/ country.
What region does Nest Wifi say it's made for? Go to following page when connected to Nest Wifi:
What region is your Nest Home Mini made for? Where did you buy it from? Have you tried factory reseting it?
