Connection problem during setup - Could not communicate with your Nest Mini

Community Member


Just bought a new Google Nest Mini (2nd gen) and tried setting it up multiple times. Every single time i come across the same issue. When I reach the stage of connecting device to wifi I get the same message - "Connection problem during setup - Could not communicate with your Nest Mini".

I rebooted by Android phone, my router to no avail. I even brought the Google Home Device close to the router (any closer and they would be married). 

I don't know what else to do. Need help!!

  • Reset your Nest Mini
