Hey guys, I'm working on a problem with the Google smart home gear. I have a client that has Google Home's and Chromecasts in every room. They are having an issue where anytime the AP gets rebooted, the Google devices will not reconnect on their own. The user is forced to power cycle each device. I was unable to solve this issue for them and said I would get back to them.
I purchased 5 of the Google Home Mini's for myself to test with. I'm using an RB4011 as my access point at home and I've found the same issue here. Though my issue seems worse. They do indeed refuse to reconnect when the AP reboots, but mine will also just randomly fall off of the network every 5 to 7 days. Same solution works.. power cycle the google device and it reconnects instantly.
I've tried talking to Google about this and they will not help because I'm using "non-standard" hardware for my network.
