Ring DoorBell Not Connecting With WiFi? Here is a Fix
There can be multiple issues because of which you are unable to connect your ring doorbell with a WiFi network. So let’s check all the things one by one.
First of all, check your network band. If it is a 5 GHz band, your ring doorbell won’t connect as Ring doorbell below supports only a 2.4GHz network. But if you have Ring doorbell 2, 3 or 4th Generation then you don’t have to worry as it support 5GHz band.
If the network band is fine, check the password you are entering; it might be incorrect or some typing issue due to which you cannot connect.
Also, check your WiFi signal and ensure that your network is not Hidden. Some people keep it hidden so that unknown user can’t connect to your WiFi.
You can also check reducing the distance between WiFi router and where you have installed ring doorbell.
Do check power and voltage as the ring doorbell needs at least 16V; else, the battery won’t last more than 6-12 months.
If nothing works for you, then reset your ring doorbell.
To reset, you need to press and hold the orange button on the device’s backside.
