Just purchased my first rachio 2nd gen and was really excited for a quick and easy setup. Unfortunately that has yet to happen. Here is my issue. I have downloaded the app, created an account. I have plugged in my the controller wires and station wires and the plugged in the power. Next, I launch the app to search for the device. (my phone is a Google pixel attached to my dedicated 2.4 GHz network). The rachio app sees my device, I click it and it asks to choose which network. I choose the 2.4 network and then type in the password when prompted. Next, the screen comes up asking for the rachios serial number. I type that in, and this is where it goes weird. As soon as I confirm the serial number, my phone gets removed from my home 2.4 WiFi network and connects to an ssid called "rachio". The app screen says connecting to device, but it never connects. It sits there for as long as up to a half an hour before I give up and try again. I have tried turning off my cellular signal on my phone with no luck. I have tried renaming my 2.4 GHz network said. I have tried my guest network said, all with the exact same outcome. Has anyone seen this before? What am I doing wrong? Could the device be faulty? I would be great full for some advice. Thank you for your time.
