Factory Reset Google WiFi [Fix]

In our recent guide on Reset Google WiFi, one of the key topics discussed was the process of resetting your Google Nest WiFi system when other options are exhausted. Here, you will find detailed instructions for performing a factory reset on all variations of the system.

To initiate a factory reset on Google WiFi, press and hold the small reset button on the bottom of your router for 10 seconds. Alternatively, you can open the Google Home application, navigate to Settings > Nest Wi-fi > Factory Reset. This action will reset Google WiFi to its factory settings and erase all accumulated data.

Just how to Reset a Google WiFi Router

A factory reset can be performed using either method. The simplest way is through the Google Home app, but it can also be accomplished by holding down the WiFi router. Here’s how to execute both of these approaches.

There are two types of resets on a Google WiFi— a factory reset and a soft reset. A soft reset is a good initial step, as it can resolve many issues without deleting all the data and settings on your device. If the soft reset doesn’t solve the problem, proceed with the factory reset, as explained below.

To perform a soft reset on a Google WiFi router, simply disconnect the power. For specific details on how to do a factory reset, including a video demonstration, refer to the section below. Google WiFi routers are powered by a cable that connects to the wall and then links to the Google WiFi router with a micro USB connection.

Reset Google Wifi on the application

Google has replaced the Google Wifi application with the Google Home app. If you haven’t installed it yet, ensure to download it, and then follow these steps:

  • Open the Google Home app and tap on the WiFi symbol.
  • Scroll forward and look for “Settings.”
  • Tap on “Factory Reset Network.”
  • Wait for the reset process to complete.

Simply wait a few minutes, and your Google WiFi will be reset and ready to use!

What to Do if Google Wi-fi Reset Button does Not Functioning

The reset button method for performing a factory reset on a Google WiFi is the simplest. However, if you’re unable to get it to work, there’s another method you can use. Here’s the alternative way to do it as explained by Google.

If the reset button is not working, use the Google Home app to reset your Google WiFi. To reset a single Google WiFi device (not all devices) from the app, choose Wi-Fi, then ‘Settings,’ then ‘Factory reset Wifi point,’ and finally, select OK. The instructions to reset all devices are provided below.

To reset all devices, open the Google Home app, select Wi-Fi, then ‘Settings,’ then ‘Factory reset,’ and choose OK. Despite the instructions stating it only resets the Wi-Fi settings, it effectively resets your entire Google WiFi device.
