your google home mini was set up successfully but can't be found 0 Recommended Answers 7 Replies 27 Upvotes

I had various different Google smart devices (home, home mini, Chromecast and 2 Chromecast audios) connected to my network with no issues. I then noticed that the home, home mini and one Chromecast audio could not be found on the network in the Google home app. This meant the group's would not work, so when trying to restart them and connect again, I get the following error message: "your google home mini was set up successfully but can't be found". It then mentions AP isolation, which is not an option on my router. I have tried factory resets, removing the devices from connected devices in my router settings but nothing works. Any help?

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post your issue.
Try each of the following before moving on to the next:
  • Are you using the Google Home app  
  • Are your Apple or Android devices on current Minimum system requirement?
  • If iOS, turn on Bluetooth:
    1. On the home screen, tap Settings > Bluetooth.
    2. Make sure the slider is On (toggled to the right and green).
    3. Close out of Settings and return to the Google Home app .
  • Reboot your router
  • If you have a dual-band router, make sure it is on the 2.4 GHz band for better coverage.
  • Make sure you power the Home device with the provided power supply into an open electrical outlet, not using a USB input on your TV or other device.
  • Try placing your Google Home device about 20 feet away from your router, or less.
  • Unplug your Router and Google Home device from electrical wall outlets for 5 minutes

I had to log into my router and uncheck the box to synchronize my 2.4gz and 5gz WiFi. Having these as independent lines solved my issue, sky Q router doesn't give the option needed any other way.

I’m having the same issue. 
How can this be so complicated?  I have connected dozens of devices in the past and this is the first time in years that something doesn’t work simply. There must be another way, this is Google, how can it not be simple to connect?  Help!
Oh, and I tried to set up the device at two different homes with different WiFi but the exact same problem happened with both systems.
