I setup my replacement Nest Wifi yesterday. The main router setup easy, but then I couldn't use either of my google phones (pixel 5 and pixel 6) to setup the points. A legit 3 pack nest wifi system from Google would not setup with my google phone because google claims there is a bug with Google phones. I fired up my old 1+ and setup the points after I figured out I had to download some google software called "device manager" that is evidently banned in North America. It took me an hour to finally get the 2 new points, paired with my older 5 google wifi points, and everything is working. Now to the issue,
For the last 3 years I've used Google Wifi with a LAN of 10.0.0.1 It has functioned without issue. I have a fairly large home networking setup, and I have countless devices that are set to use this LAN IP.
I can go into the google home app, click on wifi, go to the network settings, and no matter how many times I change the settings and click save, as soon as I reload the app it defaults back to 192. I've tried my pixel 5, pixel 6, and 1+. How is it possible that this bug exists? Is there a work around for it? I am not going to reprogram about 20 devices to use a different LAN.
It's probably a bug with the Google Home app. It should work, it's even a guide for it:
I escalated this thread, up to Google to respond now.
@olavrb, thanks for the help as always!
@chauncythecat, thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues with setting up a custom LAN IP. I'd love to know more about this and I have a few questions:
Looking forward to your response.
