Nintendo switch lite to switch oled transfer issue

So picked up a new oled switch to replace my switch lite. When I go to transfer my account the switch like says searching for target console forever, while the oled switch sees the switch lite. Eventually the oled times out and makes me go through the whole log in process again. Any ideas?

This is a bit late, but, same problem — target finds source, but source can’t find target. Yes. Within 4 feet of router. Yes, switches were within inches of each other (even put one on top of the other)./

Manually entered account, then downloaded Cloud user data (game data, too, but that’s normal).

Had a couple non-cloud-saved files that wouldn’t transfer. Animal Crossing transfer process “couldn’t communicate”

Was gonna go buy another to see if I had same problem. My highly non-technical wife suggested stopping at Starbucks for Coffee and Wifi. I guess not knowing what you’re doing pays off sometimes.

Zip, zap, files transferred. Didn’t even have time to take more than a couple sips from the cup.

My best guess is that either some security setting in my Xfinity modem/router was blocking two way recognition, or we just have too many neighbors who think they have the right to use wifi, too.
