How do I reset my Google Home Wi-Fi?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To reset the Wi-Fi on your Google Home device, you will need to use the Google Home app on your mobile device. Here are the steps to follow:

1. Open the Google Home app on your mobile device. Make sure that you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Google Home device.

2. Once the app is open, you will see a list of all your connected devices. Find the tile for the Google Home device that you want to reset the Wi-Fi for.

3. Touch and hold the tile for the device. This will bring up a menu with several options.

4. At the top right corner of the screen, you will see a gear icon. Tap on it to access the settings for your Google Home device.

5. In the settings menu, you will find a section called “Device settings”. Scroll down until you see the option for “Restart Wifi point”. Tap on it.

6. A confirmation prompt will appear, asking if you want to restart the Wi-Fi point. Tap on “Restart” to proceed with the reset.

7. The Google Home device will now restart and reset its Wi-Fi connection. It may take a few moments for the device to reconnect to the Wi-Fi network.

8. Once the reset is complete, you can set up the Wi-Fi connection again by going through the initial setup process for your Google Home device. This may involve selecting the correct Wi-Fi network and entering the password.

It’s important to note that resetting the Wi-Fi on your Google Home device will disconnect it from the network and remove any saved Wi-Fi settings. This means that you will need to set up the Wi-Fi connection again after the reset.

If you’re experiencing issues with your Google Home device’s Wi-Fi connection, resetting it can often help resolve the problem. It can be particularly useful if you’ve recently changed your Wi-Fi network or are having trouble connecting to a new network.

In my personal experience, I’ve had to reset the Wi-Fi on my Google Home device a couple of times when I moved to a new house and changed my internet service provider. The reset process was straightforward, and it allowed me to easily reconnect my device to the new Wi-Fi network.

Resetting the Wi-Fi on your Google Home device is a simple process that can help resolve connectivity issues. Just follow the steps outlined above, and you should be able to get your device back up and running on the Wi-Fi network in no time.
