Before you begin

You probably don’t need to make any changes to your Wi-Fi network or router settings unless:

Before you change any Wi-Fi network or router settings, refer to our Troubleshoot Wi-Fi and connection issues article to check if you can fix the problem you’re experiencing with your Nest product. Do not change Wi-Fi settings unless instructed to.

If you’re not familiar with Wi-Fi access point or router settings, contact your internet service provider (ISP) or router manufacturer for help with these settings.
