Question about Echo Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Echo is saying it has lost its connection yet I see it is connected to my router. Is the network at fault?

I have two devices and both are giving the same error at the same time so I suspect it is the Amazon cloud that is at fault. Does this make sense?

Ye s
amazon like all web users use a web server (IP address) that can crash at times and break internet connections
not to panic at this point in time as they are normally attended to automatically or by technicians maintaining the server
give it a few hours to reconnect or if longer call amazon by phone and ask about the cloud server

SOURCE: 3 problems writting on hd, drop connection n download master

Use a FAT32 Formatted partition (32GB) on your external USB Harddrive as the main Master Download Area. To do this, connect the drive to the PC by USB and re-partition the drive in sections with the disk manager. 32GB for the FAT32 and the rest in NTFS. Re-connect the drive to the WL500W USB and the FAT32 partition will be recognised automatically by the Router. Linux users can use the full HD drive if they format the drive in Ext2/Ext3. Correctly formatted USB memory sticks with a capacity of 32GB are better suited for this un-attended (low power) dowloading. You can use a (FAT32) 8 Gbyte stick also !

Warning !

Using only NTFS partitions will make the drive read-only and useless for un-attended downloads by the WL500W. Unfortunatly this is the case with 100% of all new availbale drives (>500GB) - So RE-PARTITION it wisely !!!

What about Queing (Waiting) ?

It waits for the connection and if bandwidth is available it starts the download. If files are missing on a server or the address is invalid an error is risen and the link is aborted or deleted. Many BitTorrent files are invalid or have nobody seeding. Waiting is therefore the best option.

Ports 5225-5226 need to be open on the router and on your machine.

SOURCE: Internet radio will not connect to recognized WiFi

Try going into your router configuration menu, and opening the network so that any device can connect. Disable any passwords and all of that, and see if it will connect in that way. This doesnt sound like a problem with the Stiletto, rather a problem with the configuration of the wireless router. Maybe call the tech support for the router also.

I just switched to a different internet provider. Alexa says she is having trouble connecting. What should I do?


You probably need to connect to your new wireless router.

Open the Alexa app.
In the Alexa app, open the left navigation panel and then select Settings.
Select your device and then select Update Wi-Fi. If you're adding a new device to your account, select Set up a new device instead.
On your Echo device, press and hold the Action button for five seconds. The light ring changes to orange, and your mobile device connects to your Echo device. A list of available Wi-Fi networks appear in the app.
Note: The Alexa app may ask you to manually connect your device to your Echo device through your Wi-Fi settings.
Select your Wi-Fi network and enter the network password (if required). If you don't see your Wi-Fi network, scroll down and select Add a Network (for hidden networks) or Rescan.
Optional - Save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon: Any Wi-Fi passwords saved during setup automatically appear when you connect a new Alexa device to the same Wi-Fi network. The password is also remembered if you switch between saved Wi-Fi networks. For more information, go to Saving Your Wi-Fi Passwords to Amazon FAQs.
Optional - Connect to a public network: Enter any required information if you are connecting to a public network that requires a web browser to sign in, like a school or hotel. The information could be a pre-shared password, room number, or just a button to accept conditions for using the network. This information cannot be saved to Amazon. Contact the network owner for more information.
Select Connect. After your device connects to your Wi-Fi network, a confirmation message appears in the app.

You must first connect directly to the Echo and configure. The as with any Wifi device enter the SSID and password/key. If your router has a guest mode, set-up with no password to see if it will connect that way.

How do I get it on my wifi network? it keeps telling me it is avoiding the network because of poor internet cinnection.


If you have poor internet connection problem with your WiFi, try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from ScanmySpeed.com before and after following these steps.

not sure this will help but heregoes,
If you can see that the plotter believes there is network communication when no network cables are connected then the fault must lie within the plotter. ( I've had Carriage PCA's give me a similar fault with network issues) and the only way forward is to replace 1 part at a time using logical faullt deduction to identify the next part.
If you see an orange com light only after you connect the lead the network card is telling you there is a com fault in the line to the router/switch ( make sure your NOT using a crossover cable if connected to a router/switch as this is often the case for this fault) replace the cable then switch/router
if the plotter has been defaulted then it should be set to DHCP and should automatically find a working IP address and subnet,
another way of checking the plotters external comms device is to connect via USB, which may help decide if the replacement Main PCA was functional to begin with,
My experience would suggest in order the fault will lie:
external Net cables
external router/switch comms
Formatter
Main Pca
Power supply ( comes with Main PCA)
Display panel
and finally the Carriage Pca,
thankfully the ISS Pwb has never given me any issues.
Good luck

Loss of internet connection when going through router


Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.
