When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Show WiFi problem
« on: November 16, 2017, 06:53:56 pm »
Iím in the UK and received my new Echo Show today. For some reason, it will not connect to my WiFi. Iíve just sold my basic Echo and had no problem with that at all. Also, our other devices such as iPads and iPhones are connected to the WiFi without a problem. Iíve tried restarting the hub but no luck. One odd thing is that my Alexa app is recognising the new Echo Show but I am unable to get past the ĎCannot connect to WiFi. Check your WiFi settingsí screen on the Show.

Any help will be much appreciated.

I got mine yesterday and it's up and running without problems. If everything else is connected, it sounds local to the Show so what do you mean by 'restarting the hub', and does this include that old favourite, 'unplug it for at least 5 minutes'?

Thanks for your response. Iíve been on the phone to Amazon and they think itís a software problem. Theyíve given me a case number and are investigating it. Apparently, Iím not the only one with this problem. I reset the BT Hub with a pin and also tried the unplug and replug thing!

Iím now set up! I tried setting the device up on the 2nd floor of the house and this has done the trick!

Interesting! You can relocate it though, now it's connected? It would be a bit of a nuisance if you could only see it upstairs! Did it download a bunch of updates once you got it going? That might have ironed out its glitch.
Pretty innit  :D

It's now working anywhere in the house. I didn't notice any updates downloading.

Mine did that as soon as it connected and before it did anything else. maybe you were so pleased it had got itself on the wifi, you didn't notice :)
