I recently rebooted my Cox Panoramic router and ever since none of my five Google Home Minis will connect. I have spoken to Google Support three times and reset each device. Google says everything looks good on their end. They will connect to wi-fi for a moment and then disconnect. Could it have to do with the 2G vs 5G? Any ideas how to fix this? Thank you.
Why did you reboot? Did you change a setting within Panoramic requiring a reboot? Are the Minis assigned to a profile in Panoramic?
Are your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands assigned to 1 network? Meaning, how many wireless networks does your Panoramic broadcast...1 for the 2 GHz and 1 for the 5 GHz?
I'm not familiar with how the Minis work, but do the Minis connect to an intermediary device, such as a Mini hub, computer or smart device?

All the Google Home products are 2.4 and 5Ghz compatible, however it could have something to do combing the two into one SSID. See link below on instructions on how to separate them. Please note step 5. You're going to want to check the box to "Use different names and passwords for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi".

Pretty sure they are smart speakers. See below for specs.
I was reading another article about a centralized hub, Home Hub, and am wondering to what exactly the Minis (speakers) connect. Do the Minis...as all other speakers in your link...directly connect to the Panoramic or to the Home Hub. I'd think the Hub for audio sync.
UPDATE: I got the rebranded monikers confused. Not Home Hub but Nest Hub.
I guess it was first called the "Home mini" but then second generation was called "Nest mini". Both can either connect to the Panoramic gateway via wifi or direct to the device via bluetooth.
Minis are speakers, right? Let's just call 'em Minis. Is there a centralized hub for these speakers? Should OP be troubleshooting the Minis or, if applicable, the hub?
