    Hi - does anyone know about a problem connecting ESP8266 to google wifi router? It doesn't connect no matter what i do. when I use tp-link router instead - the connection works fine.

    by "connecting" i mean - it is programmed to connect to the routers SSID with the password. each router is using a different SSID (and i program each module to the correct ssid/password)

    They can both operate at 2.4ghz so i can't see what's the cause.

    Are you able to run a serial monitor and view the Wi-Fi connection logging from the ESP8266? Most of the libraries will output some sort of information whilst trying to establish a connection, so you may be able to find out a little more about the issue (i.e. is it an authentication issue, SSID not detected, etc...).

    Are you using the same protocol on both routers - WPA2-PSK I presume?
