How To Fix The Issue Of Wi-Fi Connectivity In Amazon Echo?

Amazon had developed an Amazon Echo a few year ago which is a smart device to control different appliances at home through your voice commands. It uses the voice assistant ‘Alexa’ to communicate with you. You can control your home lights and thermostat with the Amazon Echo setup on the device. You can even ask any question from Alexa related to current weather, music or news. It works on speech recognition technology which changes your speech into action.

To connect your device to the Amazon Echo, you need an internet connection on both the devices. Amazon Echo also requires an internet connection to reply to your commands in an accurate way. Before, this you need to configure your device on a smartphone or on the tablet by visiting www Amazon com echosetup link. Your Amazon works on dual-band Wi-Fi network but not with peer to peer network. If you are getting the problem in configuring the wireless network on the device, then follow the below mentioned steps.

  1. Check the status of your network: You will find Wi-Fi LED on the top of your device. Check the status of this light.
