Without any further delay, let’s start with the troubleshooting guides:

  • Make sure that the devices are on the same WiFi network

First of all, you need to make sure that your devices, Echo dot and the smartphone are on the same WiFi network or not. Connect both devices to the same frequency i.e. 2.4 GHz to 5 GHz.

  • Check the WiFi connection

Make sure that you are connected to the WiFi properly. If the device is showing green light that means the device is connected properly but if it is showing red light then there is an issue with the router. Then you need to reboot the router to fix the issue. 

  • Check the power outlet

Verify if your Alexa or Echo dot is receiving the proper power supply or not. If the power outlet is not working properly then unplug the device and plug it again to fix the issue. Or else you can plug the device in a different socket.

  • Check the WiFi signal strength

Sometimes your Echo dot appears offline due to the weak signal strength. So, you can verify the signal strength by checking the WiFi bars on your smartphone. If you see less WiFi bars then move your device closer to the router. It will boost the WiFi signals.

  • Use the correct power adapter

Use the correct adapter that comes with the Echo dot in the packaging. The wrong adapter can cause the Echo dot offline issue.

  • Update the software version

Usually, the Echo dot device updates automatically over the WiFi. Sometimes, the outdated version of the software can cause the issue. To resolve the issue, always use the updated version of the software.

  • Update the Alexa app

Update your Alexa app from time to time to enjoy the features of Alexa. To update the Alexa App, go to the Google play store or iTune app store.

  • Reinstall the Alexa app

If updating the app or software is not working then first uninstall the Alexa app and then reinstall it. This will fix the Echo dot offline issue.

  • Update the WiFi information in your Alexa app

If you have changed your router recently then you need to update the new network name and password in your Alexa app. Also, check the firmware updates for your router. Update the firmware by logging in to the router admin panel, if required.

  • Reset your Echo dot device

If everything is not working then the last option is to factory reset the Echo dot device. Factory reset of the Echo dot device will remove all the information from the device.
