I am trying to create my mesh network and I am facing some difficulties to setup the second and third routers in the mesh network.
I have 1 router connected to the modem, the home is created and the network is also created and works fine.
The issue comes when setting up a second router as a pointer, without cable connection. I am prompted by the Google home app to scan the qr code and proceed with normal setup, but always get the result of Failure in Connection.
Is there something that I am missing? Is there anyone that can help me with this please?
Connecting the second router via cable is not a possibility, as I do not have Ethernet ports in the rest of the house.
Thank you in advance!
Make sure you have no VPN enabled/ connected; not any 3rd party product, nor the "Apple iCloud Private Relay" ( https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212614 ).
Make sure the Google Home app has been granted permission for "local network access" ( https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/7172427?hl=en ).
IPv6 on Nest Wifi has caused strange problems lately. One thing to try is to disable IPv6 ( https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/6361450?hl=en ), add new Nest Wifi unit, then leave IPv6 off or enable it again.
