You may have noticed that your new Google Home doesn’t always connect to the Internet and it does not seem to have a connection to your wireless network. What can you do to fix this? The first thing to check is that your Google Home is turned on in the first place. If it isn’t turned on then it will either have to be connected via a USB dongle or via a Wifi dongle.
Next, check if the Google Home is set up correctly. You should make sure that your Google Home has the option to go online when you push the power button on the unit and that it connects to the internet at the correct time.
If your Google Home is still on its initial software setup and you have not received a new software version yet then it probably means that you are not connected to a Wifi network and therefore cannot get online using your Google Home. The easiest way to solve this problem is to sign-in to your Google Home’s setting page by signing into the homepage.
Once you have signed in you should be able to see the list of available software updates for your Google Home. Click on the one that you want to update and then follow the instructions for installing them. Once you have installed them, you will need to reboot your Google Home again so that the new software will take effect.
If after rebooting your Google Home again you are still having trouble getting it to connect to the internet then it is likely that your Google Home is using a Wifi network that has not been configured correctly. The best way to correct this problem is to follow the instructions for creating your own Wi-Fi network, which you will find below.
If after following these steps and rebooting your Google Home you are still having trouble then there are a few things that you can do to repair the problem. Firstly, if you want to set up a secure wireless network for your Google Home then there is a simple solution to do this which is to connect it to a USB wifi dongle which will give it a secure wireless connection. If this doesn’t fix the issue then you may also want to try and download and run a Wifi scanner on your laptop.
To scan for any available networks you should use WLANscan. This tool will show up as a network to scan and then give you the status of each network that it finds. Once you’ve found the network you want, connect it to your Google Home and then click on the network and then click on the Scan button on the bottom left hand side of the screen.
Once you have found a network that matches your preferences, you need to click on the Scan button on the bottom left side of the screen and then click on the scan button again. This will let Wlanscan scan through all the available networks and then report back with the results.
Once you have downloaded and ran the WLANscan utility on your computer, then you should be able to set up your Google Home to be able to connect to your new network by clicking on the Scan button again on the bottom left hand side of your screen. After a while the Google Home will begin to appear on your screen and you should be able to view it and see if it is able to connect to the internet via the network you have created.
When it is finished scanning the networks, you may want to click on the scan button again to make sure that it has detected the correct Wlanscan. utility that you need installed on your computer. If the Wlanscan utility that you have installed fails to work then you can go back to the Google Home website and purchase a new one to replace it.
Once you have downloaded and run WLANscan you need to click on the Save button and then click on the Apply button to reboot your home and set up the network that you want your Google Home to use. If all goes well then after your Google Home reboots you should then be able to access the internet as normal. However, if you are still having trouble then it is likely that the problem lies with your Wifi router or your Wifi scanner.
One thing that you should check if you are having troubles with your Google Home is to see whether you have any other devices such as your Wifi scanner or your router that is giving you problems. It may be that one of these devices is causing the Wifi scanner to stop working. If this is the case then you should try disconnecting the other device from the Wifi scanner and then reinstalling the Wlan scanner from the web so that you are able to see whether your Google Home can now access the internet again.
