I recently got a few google home products and have set them up fine but because I have a BT wifi extender (610) for the parts of the flat that the BT home hub doesn't reach they don't register as being part of the same home network. I followed instructions on how to change the ssid of the wifi extension but it's not registering as the same network. Any ideas? I'm happy to get a different extender if it's likely to just transfer the same network name.
If you can keep the extenders name with the “extn” if possible, the google product will try to connect to the Wi-Fi SSID that replies first. So if you have made the Extender Wi-Fi the same as the HUB’s / Router it could be holding on to the original Wi-Fi. (This could be very week and slow) Try setting up the google device near the Extender 610 If you are still having a problem, try this workaround: Set up the Extender and then connect the Extender to the HUB using the Ethernet port and turn off the Wi-Fi on the HUB, then set up the google device, forcing it to connect to the extender, then you can reposition both and then turn on the Hubs Wi-Fi again. What Google Home product / device are you trying to connect?
