Android TV Can’t Connect to WiFi? Here are the Fixes

Android TVs are great value for money as you get access to thousands of top-notch apps for TV. You can also use Google Assistant on your Android TV and do much more with just a voice command. However, there are some lingering issues with Android TV that hamper the experience and one of them is WiFi connectivity. Many users have reported that Android TV can’t connect to WiFi even when the access point is working well on other devices. On some TVs, WiFi does not even turn on. So if you are facing WiFi issues on your Android TV then follow our guide below to fix all nagging problems on your TV.

Android TV Can’t Connect to WiFi? Resolve Your Issues Here

1. If your Android TV can’t connect to WiFi then, first of all, you need to adjust the time and date settings. To do so, open Settings by clicking on the gear icon located at the top-right corner. After that, open Device Preferences.

2. Next, open “Date and Time” and click on “Automatic Date and Time”.

3. Here, select “Use network provided time“. For the majority of Android TV WiFi issues, this will instantly fix the problem. Also, if you are getting “Connected, no internet” error then this will resolve the issue then and there.

4. If the above steps didn’t fix it for you then follow these steps. Open Settings and move to “Network and Internet”. Make sure the WiFi toggle is turned on. After that, open your WiFi access point.

5. Now, scroll down to the bottom and click on “Forget Network“.

6. Next, reconnect to the WiFi again by entering the password and this time your Android TV WiFi should be resolved.

7. If the issue still persists then open your WiFi access point again and make sure Proxy is set to “None” and IP Settings is set to “DHCP”.

8. Apart from that, some Android TV also face “hotspot WiFi” issues where the TV is connected to the smartphone hotspot, but the internet does not work. This mainly happens when the data saver limit reaches its ceiling. So to disable data saver on Android TV open Settings and move to “Network and Internet”.

9. Here, open “Data Saver” and turn it off.

10. In case, you are facing issues such as WiFi not showing on your Android TV then you may have to tweak some of your router settings. Open on a browser from your computer or smartphone that is connected to the WiFi. It will allow you to access your router settings.

11. Here, look for “SSID Broadcast” and make sure it’s turned on. Generally, SSID settings are found under the Wireless section so look over there. It will make your WiFi access point visible to all devices.

12. Next, some TVs don’t support the 5GHz WiFi connection. In that case, you need to change the router settings to broadcast both 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels. Under the router settings page, open Wireless Settings and enable wireless radio for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels. Now, you will find your WiFi access point on your Android TV.

13. In case the Android TV WiFi toggle is disabled then it’s likely a hardware issue but we will try some troubleshooting. When the TV is turned on, unplug the cord directly from the power outlet. Wait for a minute and then plug it again and start your TV. Now check if you are able to turn on the WiFi switch on your Android TV.

14. If none of the above steps worked for you then you can hard reset your Android TV. This will erase all your local files, apps, settings, and remove your Google account from your Android TV. After the reset process, you will start a clean slate and most likely, the “Android TV WiFi disabled” issue will be gone.

    I have a Net Gear wifi booster that I use to access xfinity wifi so I have wifi on my mobile device. My sceptre android “smart” tv will connect to my Net Gear booster that has no security, but displays ” connected to a device that has no internet, but the mobile hot spot that is getting its internet connection from my Net Gear will connect to the tv, and let me connect to the internet. So all the internet I have is through my wifi booster and every other device I have will connect to it except my tv, it only works off of my phone’s hot spot that gets its internet through the same device my tv says has no internet
