Devices on the wrong WiFi network.

Devices on the wrong WiFi network.

I recently changed the ISPs and made some configurations of the new router. I have my own router for the home network, but the ISP router also creates a WiFi network and I occasionally join it so that I can connect to the model and change the settings. I collect HomeKit devices that track the WiFi network that the phone is connected to, and some of them switch to the router’s network at some point, and then don’t turn the switch back on. That network was originally set to Auto Join, but I’ve disabled it since. Now, when I enter the Home app, I see a “Wi-Fi Network” alert that says two of my HomePods aren’t available, and when I touch them, it says “This HomePod is on the BELL968 Wi-Fi network, which is different from the network on which this iPhone is activated. “My Ikea blinds are also not available in HomeKit, I suspect they are also in the wrong network. So what do I do about it? I switched my phone to the BELL968 network, and the devices are not yet accessible, so I don’t know what kind of limbo he’s in now.
