Are you seeing your network? Have you tried connecting via pushbutton WPS

Make sure it's set to the correct frequency that your router is at home, it may be set to 5ghz on the phone and your router may only be a 2.4ghz capable router.

Hi Taylor, It should be automatic. The pixel should be able to see either. Try unplugging your router for a minute and plug it back in. Sometimes they just need a reset.
