We’ve hit the point in our house where I had to upgrade us beyond our AirPort Extreme (AC) to a netgear Nighthawk. The GF was running fine on the airport. Now won’t connect to the Nighthawk.
I can get it to see the 2.4ghz network on the Netgear, give it a password, it seems to attempt to connect, then gives me the ole

So far what I’ve found is that it seems the GF needs:
- 2.4ghz - won’t see 5ghz
- SSID broadcast (this I doubt, there’s a manual add network option)
Am I missing anything else? Can anyone from GF confirm and expound. Documentation is either lacking or I’ve not found it yet (entirely possible).
WPA2 I get. The other requirements are disappointing. But can’t be changed at this point I suppose. Everything else has connected to the new router just fine, and that includes our HUE lights hub and Logi Circle cam.
I have reconnected the old Airport Router (which previously connected just fine and ran for about two weeks) and the GF will not connect to that either. Is there a factory reset?
On app.glowforge.com, it says that my GF is “cancelling” last time I used it was about a day ago.
