Nest wifi flashing orange on first day of use?

Community Member

Hello all,


I’ve recently purchased the Google nest Wi-Fi, router and point pack. I’ve just hooked them up today and all seemed to be okay for the first hour, but then there’s been this strange orange flashing light that keeps happening on the point intermittently. I’ve tried moving the router closer to the point, I’ve tried moving the point closer to the router and this orange flashing light continues. Doesn’t seem to be any sort of pattern to the flashing, and it seems to cut off mid flash most of the time, like it’s having trouble connecting and then reconnecting. I’ve got a video of this but can’t upload it here. Any seen/dealt with this or have any idea on what could be causing this?

According to this:

Orange on the Nest Wifi add-on point indicates that the microphone is turned off.

Does the Google Home app indicate any trouble when this happens, like does it show the puck as offline?

I don't work for Google.
