I am setting up a 3 unit mesh. I got the main unit and second unit connected fine. The third unit will not compete setup though. I keep getting the "unit is too far away from hub" message, even if I plug it in on the dame room 10 feet from the main unit.

This happened to me yesterday when I set up my Google Wifi for the first time. Instead, it was the second Wifi-point that kept generating that message even when I placed it in the next room. I proceeded to install the third Wifi-point and after that had no trouble installing the previously failing second Wifi-point, though in a different spot than where I originally tried.

So, try reversing the order in which you install them.
