How to connect Echo to Wi-Fi

Your Amazon Echo can be a window into the world. You can stream music, get weather reports, be briefed on the latest news and control your smart home. But to do all of that, you're going to need to connect to a Wi-Fi network.

And hey, we get it. Maybe you've upgraded your router or you're using your Echo speaker in someone else's house. But you've only connected your Wi-Fi to your Echo during setup, so how the heck do you do it after the fact?

Well, it's going to be fine. Below, we've assembled a guide to tell you how exactly to connect your Echo device to your Wi-Fi.

How to connect your Echo to Wi-Fi

You're going to need to make sure your Echo is plugged in and you've got your Alexa app ready to go. Once you've done that, you're all set to connect your Echo to your Wi-Fi network.

1) Open the left panel and click Settings.
2) Tap Device Settings.
3) Select your device and tap Change next to the Wi-Fi network.
4) Your Echo device will now go through setup.
5) Select the Wi-Fi network in the Alexa app.
6) Log in to your Wi-Fi.
7) Tap Connect.

Congratulations, you've connected your Echo device to the Wi-Fi. One thing to note, however, is that if you can't find your network you can always tap Add a Network to do it manually. You can also tap Rescan to search for Wi-Fi networks again.

If you need to add your Echo device to a list of approved devices, you can also put in your MAC address. There are also two optional settings. One is to save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon. This way, when you set up new Echo devices in the future it'll already know your Wi-Fi information.

You can also connect your Echo to a public Wi-Fi network. So if you're going to a hotel or want to install one in the classroom, you can enter any information that might be asked for in a browser-based pop-up. This is an option that'll pop up as you're going through the Wi-Fi setup. This information, however, cannot be saved.
