#2 Fix: Reconnect to Wi-Fi
The problem can persist if you are connected to a Wi-Fi network with no internet access. You can follow the steps below to fix the problem.
- Restart your router by unplugging and plugging the power adapter to the wall socket. In case you use mobile data, turn off the Wi-Fi hotspot and re-enable it.
- Now move over to Settings among the group of tabs above the Fire TV home screen.
- Select Network from the list of options.
- Select your preferred network under the Network If you don’t see your network, click Rescan. Make sure your Wi-Fi router is not too far from your Fire TV device.
- Enter the Wi-Fi password using the on-screen keyboard. Click Connect once you are done.
Restarting your router will free up resources on your router and begin to process and respond to incoming data packets. But make sure your internet connection is working correctly. Verify it from your internet service provider first. If this doesn’t fix the issue, then carry on to the next fix.
