Hi @jimathome1036

 

Please follow the steps below: 
Remove your camera entry from the GoPro App's history. 
Android: Open GoPro App. Press and hold the image of the camera and delete the entry from your camera history. 
Reset your camera’s Wi-Fi settings using the instructions on https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/Reset-Wi-Fi-Name-and-Password/ta-p/394276
Delete the GoPro camera under the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi entries in your mobile device’s settings before attempting to re-pair to your GoPro.
 

You may also test it with another phone to help isolate the issue.

Let us know how it goes.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Google pixel 2 HERO 8 won't connect

Thanks for the reply it's still not working won't connect to the 5Ghz at all, connects to the 2.4Ghz band briefly but then stops working causes my wi-fi connection on my Pixel 2 to turn off and there we have the reason the app toggles my wi-fi off and on again, don't know if this is an app issue or a pixel issue just noticed I'm not the only one who has this problem with pixel and GoPro
