"They will unfortunately need to be set up again," the statement said. "This has not affected the software or performance of the device but it does need to be re-setup."

Hours earlier, many users had taken to forums and social media to voice their dissatisfaction and confusion.

It's not a great start for Google Wifi, an otherwise excellent router that launched three months ago. It's the company's first router made in-house. The 2015 Google-branded OnHub series was made by Asus and TP-Link.
