How to Change the WiFi on an Echo Show

Amazon’s Echo Show allows you to easily change the WiFi network you’re using to connect to the internet.

The process is quite similar to changing the WiFi network on your smartphone.

You can change your WiFi network on the Echo Show through the on-screen network settings or in the Alexa app. Both methods will help the Echo Show scan for and connect to a new wireless network.

Changing your WiFi network using your Echo Show device is typically the easiest method. All you need to do is follow these quick steps:

  • Swipe down on your Echo Show’s screen to access the drop-down notification bar.
  • Click on “Settings.”
  • Select “Network” or “WiFi.”
  • Choose your new WiFi network.
  • Enter the password if required.

If you don’t see the WiFi network you want to connect to, scroll down to “Advanced WiFi Options.”

Here, you can select “Add Network,” then type in and manually search for your WiFi network.

Alternatively, you can select “Rescan” to search for your preferred network again.

Using the Alexa App to Change the WiFi on the Echo Show

Echo Shows are compatible with Amazon Alexa, meaning you can do many of the same functions you do on-screen through the Alexa app.

If you would rather use this method to change the WiFi network you’re using, follow the steps below:

  • Enable Bluetooth on your mobile phone.
  • Open the Alexa app.
  • Select “Devices.”
  • Click on “Echo and Alexa.”
  • Choose your Echo Show device.
  • Select “Settings.”
  • Tap “WiFi Network.”
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to connect to a new WiFi network.

After following the above steps, your Echo Show should run smoothly on the new WiFi network.

Why Won’t My Echo Show Connect to a New Network?

Sometimes, your Echo Show may not detect the network you want to connect to.

Other times, the Echo Show might fail to connect to the new network successfully.

If you are facing either of these problems, try some of the following steps to solve the problem:

  • Make sure your Echo Show is not close to any network-interrupting devices, like baby monitors, metal, radios, or microwave ovens.
  • Restart the Echo Show by unplugging the power cord from the power outlet and plugging it back in after a minute.
  • Reset the Echo Show to kickstart basic operations. Press and hold the “Mute” and volume down buttons simultaneously for about 15 seconds to do so.
  • Move your Echo Show closer to your WiFi router. The two devices should be no more than 30 feet from each other.
  • Make sure your router is working by checking if it can connect to other devices.
  • Ensure you are entering the correct WiFi password.
  • Disconnect other devices from the network. The problem might be that too many devices are connected to your WiFi.
  • Reboot your router. Unplug it from the power outlet, wait for 10 seconds, then plug it back again.

In some instances, the issue may be due to a network problem.

If this happens, you will just have to wait a few minutes until the network picks up again.

Note that factory resetting your Echo Show will clear all your personal settings and reset the device to the factory settings.

However, it will also clear any bugs that are preventing you from connecting to the WiFi network.

On the off chance that none of these fixes work, you may have to reach out to Amazon Customer Support for more technical assistance.

There You Have It!

If you want to change the WiFi network on your Echo Show, simply go to the device’s network settings and scan for your new WiFi network.

Unlike most Echo devices, the Echo Show has a touchscreen display.

This allows you to easily tweak different settings, such as the WiFi network you’re connected to, without using the Alexa app.

However, if you have trouble changing your network the usual way, you can still use the Alexa app.

Both methods are fast and efficient, allowing you to easily connect to a new network whenever you need to.
