Your Alexa device has to be linked to Wi-Fi in order to operate to its full capacity. Unless your Alexa is connected to this specific Wi-Fi network, it will not function if you are taking it somewhere new or have changed your internet network.
Whether you have the Alexa app or not, this post will provide you a straightforward tutorial on how to connect your Alexa to Wi-Fi.
Connect Alexa To Wi-Fi With The App
The Alexa app makes it simple to connect your Alexa to Wi-Fi. You’ll need to launch the app first.
On The Devices, Tap
When the app has loaded, select Devices from the menu in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Alexa and Echo
Next, select the device you want to connect by tapping on the Echo & Alexa option in the top right corner.
If your device isn’t listed among the alternatives, you can choose All Devices and it will.
Click The Status.
When you hit the Status option after choosing your device, Alexa’s WiFi network connection will be shown.
Click on Change.
On your Alexa device, tap Change, and then press and hold the action button. The button with the round dot is this one. Hold down this button for approximately 15 seconds, or until an orange light appears.
Press Continue on the app when the orange light starts spinning and then appears.
Your device will show up under Available Devices after you select Continue. To connect your Alexa to a Wi-Fi network, first choose it, then touch on it and type the password.
When you enter the password and click Connect, Alexa will successfully connect to the Wi-Fi.
Connecting Your Alexa To Wi-Fi (No App)
You can still connect your device to your Wi-Fi network even if you haven’t downloaded the Alexa app; you’ll just need to do it through a web browser.
Entering alexa.amazon.com in the search box and signing into your Amazon account should be your first two steps.
Go to Settings in the sidebar on the left of the page once you’ve logged into your account.
Configure a New Device
Next, select the device you want to connect to your Wi-Fi network by clicking on Set up a new device.
Click Continue after choosing your device, then make sure Alexa is connected to a power source.
Should Appear Orange Light
If an orange light doesn’t show after using the method described above, push the button with a circular dot and hold it down for 15 seconds.
When the light comes on, you can choose to continue.
Go to your Wi-Fi networks and choose one that has Amazon -XXX marked on it.
Click Continue on your browser, select the network you want to connect to, and then enter the password.
These instructions should successfully connect your Alexa to your Wi-Fi network.
It is crucial to note that doing this using the app is a little bit simpler, so if you don’t already have it, you should download it.
In conclusion, Alexas are fantastic gadgets, but they require WiFi in order to function properly.
It’s easy to connect your Alexa to your Wi-Fi network, and while you may do it with or without the app, using the Alexa app will make the process go more quickly and smoothly.
We hope this post has given you a practical how-to guide for doing this.
