My wifi suddenly stopped working 2 days back due to some ISP issue. That problem has been resolved and I can use the internet service from my ISP's router, but after resetting my ISP's router, I cannot reconnect my Nest WiFi router which was working fine for the last 2 years until the day B4 yesterday.
I restarted the network several times but with no result. Lastly, I reset the whole Nest & Google wifi network to Factory reset. My mesh consist of 4 Google Wifi <1st gen.> which I had been using for last 4 years and 1 + 3 Nest Wifi which I had been using for the last 2 years.
Now, after factory resetting my whole network, I cannot setup the Nest wifi itself. After finishing this set up, I will have 2 set up all other 7 mesh points.
Is it due to any update from Google which I'm unaware of...??
Plz. suggest me a way out to set up my network, else my whole eco-system will collapse including my Cams, Hub Max, Nest Audio, Cromecast, bulbs, and all other IoT enabled devices.
As part of factory resetting your Google Wifi and Nest Wifi pucks, have you made sure that your existing Nest Wifi network is deleted from your Google Home home? This must be done before you can add a new master/ main/ primary puck to your Google Home home.

I'd also recommend to use the Nest Wifi router as the main/ master/ primary puck as it has more powerfull hardware than the rest.
I'd also consider using fewer pucks, I read it as 6 in total? That could hurt performance due to interference and wireless backhaul overhead. Max recommended wireless pucks by Google is 5 in total. Read more here:
One more thing: The ISP equipment should be put in bridge mode if not already, to avoid double NAT. More about that:
