nest Wi-Fi point only shows up as a cast device

Community Member

I got a new nest Wi-Fi access point. I set it up normal with no errors but the mesh does not seem to be created? I don't even have an option to do a mesh test.

When I look at the the Home app I can see the new access point down as a cast device only? It's like it's only connected as a speaker

Was it added to a network and Google Home home that exist of other Nest Wifi devices?

If no, and this one Nest Wifi add-on point exists as a standalone Nest Wifi device, I think this is expected behavior.

I don't work for Google.

Bingo...that was it. Figured it out about 30mins ago. Needed to factory reset the access point and setup again under the correct group.


Thank for the lighting quick response!
