I recently purchased a Pixel 2 phone from Verizon along with a Google Home smart speaker. I downloaded Google Home on Pixel 2 and tried to get it to connect to my 5Ghz FiOS router. No luck. Google Home just takes forever and it looks like it will not connect. Pixel 2 phone itself has no problem connecting to the same router on 5Ghz. I tried to manually enter th Wi-Fi key and that too did not work. Any help appreciated.
Have you tried to see if it would connect to a 2.4 GHz network to verify the Wi-Fi chip works correctly on the speaker?
