1. In the bottom bar, tap “More” and then tap “Settings”.
1. Click on ‘Device settings’.
3. Choose your device, and then tap the ‘Change Wi-Fi Network’ button.
4. Now, your Echo device will go through the setup process.

7. Click ‘Connect’.

You’ve successfully connected your Echo device with Wi-Fi.

  • Enter your network details manually by tapping ‘Add A Network’.

You can enter your MAC address if you want to add the Echo device to a approved devices list. Two optional settings are available. The first is to store your Wi-Fi Password with Amazon. Then, the next time you want to set up a new Echo device, Amazon will already have your Wi-Fi password.

You can connect your Echo with a public WiFI network. If you are installing one in a classroom or a hotel, you can input any information in a pop-up window. You’ll see this option pop-up as you proceed through the WiFI setup. However, this information cannot be saved.
