Major Wi-Fi Problems
« on: August 30, 2018, 03:48:12 pm »
I don't know if it's the device, or my router. But my router seems to work fine with all the devices that I connect it too. The Wi-Fi for my Echo is very unstable, and sometimes it cannot detect WiFi. So for now i'm using the Lenovo Smart Display with Google assistant and it works just fine. The camera shutter screen is just a life-changing feature that the Echo Show does not have. However, since i've purchased the device, I still want it to work just like any other of my devices. The more assistants the merrier yes?

What have you tried already..?

Switching between 2.4GHz and 5GHz, switching channels, moving echo closer to router, ...?
My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, 2 Fire tablets,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Domoticz server connecting e-thermostat, smartplugs etc.

This could be a signal strength issue between the Show and router.  The Show may need a better signal because of the video feature.  You did not tell us which wi-fi band you are connected to.  2,4 G is best because of the extended range, and 5G may help video signal but has shorter range.    Also, your Show likely needs to be closer to your router for best reception.  Be sure you are closer to router as was suggested.
