Step 3: Verify your connection

Once your Amazon Alexa is connected to WiFi, you can verify the connection by asking Alexa to perform a task. For example, you can say “Alexa, what’s the weather like today?” If Alexa is able to answer your question, your device is successfully connected to WiFi.

If you’re still having trouble connecting your device to WiFi, try restarting your router and modem. You can also try moving your Alexa device closer to your WiFi router to improve the signal strength.

Troubleshooting Alexa’s Wi-Fi Connection Issues

If you are experiencing issues with your Alexa device connecting to Wi-Fi, it’s likely due to a problem with your network or your Echo device. To determine whether it’s a network issue, try connecting another device to your Wi-Fi. If the other device also can’t connect, then the problem is likely with your network. In that case, you can try restarting your router and modem to see if that resolves the issue.

If other devices can connect to your Wi-Fi but your Alexa device still can’t, then there may be an issue with the device itself. In this case, you can try unplugging the power adapter from your Echo device for about 3 seconds, then plugging it back in. This can sometimes help to reset the device and resolve any connectivity issues.

Additionally, make sure that your Alexa device is within range of your Wi-Fi network and that your network is functioning properly. You can also try resetting your Alexa device to its factory settings and setting it up again from scratch. If none of these steps work, you may need to contact Amazon support for further assistance.


Connecting your Alexa device to WiFi is a simple process that can be done without the use of the app. By logging into your Amazon account and selecting the device you wish to connect, you can easily choose a WiFi network that is marked as Amazon-XXX. If you encounter any issues with the connection, it is important to check for any problems with your network before restarting your Echo device. Following these steps will ensure that you can enjoy the full functionality of your Alexa device and all of its features.
