Nest Wifi Router Offline

Community Member

My nest wifi router is showing offline in the google home app but my wifi is still working. I am unable to connect any wifi points since the network is offline. I've hard reset my network, I've reset my modem and router and all things recommended by these forums. Anyone have other ideas?

Hey, Rocinante.

Sorry for the issues you're having with the Home app. I know it can be frustrating to have these sorts of issues. Let's see what we can do to get this fixed.

Thanks for letting me know what troubleshooting you have already tried. That should steer us in the right direction. One thing I would like you to try is to reset your cloud services connection to see if that will clear things up. The instructions for that are below.


Open the Google Home app.

  1. Tap the WiFi icon.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Select Privacy settings.

  4. Toggle Nest WiFi cloud services OFF and wait for 30 seconds, then back ON.

Once done, close the Home app and perform a full network restart to ensure that the new settings are in place. To do this, I would recommend doing a power cycle on your network.

  1. Disconnect the power adapter and the Ethernet cable from the Nest WiFi router.

  2. Disconnect the power adapter from the Nest WiFi points.

  3. Disconnect the power adapter from the modem. Allow all devices to stay disconnected from the power for 5 minutes.

  4. Connect the power back to the modem only and wait for it to fully back up. All lights should be lit up before moving to the next step.

  5. After the modem is back online, connect the Ethernet cable back to Nest WiFi router's WAN port (globe symbol port).

  6. Connect the power back to the Nest WiFi router and to the Nest WiFi points. Wait until they're all fully back on.

Once you've gone through these steps, check to see if you're able to see things working correctly in your Home app. If you're still having issues at that point, please let me know and we'll look at other options. Thanks.
