Check the strength of your Wi-Fi signal
The first step in resolving the error Fire Stick Connected with Problems is to assess the strength of your internet connection.
Here’s how it’s done:
- On the Amazon Fire TV Stick’s home screen, go to Settings.
- Select Network and then click OK.
- The connected Wi-Fi network is selected automatically. To check the Wi-Fi status, press the Play/Pause button on the remote.
- The network/Wi-Fi status is displayed in a window.
- Now we’ll look at the different options based on your Signal Strength.
‘Poor’ signal strength or anything other than ‘Very Good’ signal strength
When your Fire Stick isn’t receiving Wi-Fi signals properly, this happens.
You should keep your modem/router between 20-25 feet of your device (which is usually the maximum range of most routers).
If you can’t get your modem any closer, contact your Internet service provider to have it adjusted.
If you think your FireStick is within range, try moving the modem to a different area. You could, for example, set it a little higher.
You should also keep the modem away from any other electronic devices that are plugged in. Electronic equipment may cause signal interference.
However, if you believe you have done everything possible and the FireStick Connected with Problems message persists, there may be a problem with the modem/router. You may need to contact your ISP once more.
Restore the factory defaults on your Fire Stick.
Because it deletes all previous apps and settings, resetting means starting again. As a result, it is the last resort for troubleshooting.
When nothing else seems to work, rebooting the computer frequently solves the problem.
After you’ve reset the device, you’ll need to set it up as if it were brand new.
- Go to Settings > My Fire TV on your FireStick.
- Reset to Factory Defaults is located at the bottom of the page.
- To confirm, click Reset.
These are the solutions to the FireStick Connected with Problems error, allowing you to stream again on your device.
