How To Connect Nest Thermostat To Wi-Fi?

If you change your home network password or install a new router and change the network name (SSID) and/or password, you must update the Wi-Fi information on your Nest equipment.

Nest gadgets will remember the name and password of your Wi-Fi network. So, if you have changed the name or password of your home network, your Nest products will be unable to connect to the Internet and you will be unable to access or manage them via the Nest app.

Set up a Nest Thermostat to a New Router/Wi-fi Password

Method 1

Use the same network name and password as before.

The most basic solution for most Nest gadgets is to upgrade your home network so that the network name (SSID) and password remain the same. As long as the manufacturer’s settings are the same, this should work even if you’ve purchased a new Wi-Fi router.

If this doesn’t work, or if you want to preserve your new network name or password, you’ll need to change the Wi-Fi information on all of your Nest equipment – please see step 2.

If your Nest products are unable to connect to your new network, you must update each of them with the new Wi-Fi credentials. The directions varies depending on the product; for the thermostat, follow the steps below.
