Other Possible Fixes for Echo Connection Problems – The issue you’re having could be a result of your internet connection. Perhaps the Echo isn’t connecting to the router, or the router isn’t connected to your ISP. Follow these steps in order until it has reconnected.
Check to make sure your router is plugged in and connected to the Internet. Can you connect to Wi-Fi and access the Internet from another device? If not, the problem lies with either your router or your modem. Unplug both devices, wait 15 seconds, then plug them back in. If that does not work, try the same thing with the Echo. Turn it completely off using the power button, wait 15 seconds, then turn it back on. Wait a minute to see if it automatically reconnects to the internet.Is there still no connection? Don’t get frustrated – You may have saved your wireless password to your Amazon account when you first set up your Echo. If you recently changed your Wi-Fi password, the Echo will be unable to connect. Just open your Alexa app, update the password, and it should reconnect automatically.If you are using a dual-band modem, then you may have two Wi-Fi networks set up. The two frequencies are optimized for different uses. The 5GHz frequency offers a more stable connection, while the 2.4GHz frequency is better for devices located further away. Try switching to the other network to see if the Echo will connect.Check to make sure that your router is not blocking the device. Many routers will not allow a new device to join for security purposes. Login to your router and make sure the Echo has permission to join.Is it still not working? Try repositioning your Echo. First, get it away from any wireless devices that could interfere with its signal. Then, move it higher, such as on top of a piece of furniture, to avoid interference. Finally, it could be that the Echo is too far from the wireless router (within 30 feet is ideal) or in a part of your house where the signal is not especially strong. Try moving the Echo to a better location, such as right next to your wireless router. Tip: Alternatively, you could get a wireless extender to expand your router’s range.
