# How to Connect Alexa to Wi-Fi Without the App
If you have an Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled device, you can use it to control smart devices in your home, play music, answer questions, and more. However, to do any of these things, you first need to connect your Alexa device to your Wi-Fi network. While the process is straightforward if you have the Alexa app installed, some people may not want to use the app or may not have access to it. Fortunately, there is a way to connect Alexa to Wi-Fi without the app. Here’s how to do it.

## Requirements
Before you begin, make sure you have the following:

– An Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled device
– A smartphone, tablet, or computer with Wi-Fi connectivity
– A web browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.)

## Steps
1. Turn on your Alexa device and wait for it to light up orange, indicating that it’s in setup mode.
2. Use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to search for Wi-Fi networks in your area.
3. Look for a network called “Amazon-xxxxxx” (with a series of numbers and letters after “Amazon”).
4. Select this network and click “Connect” (you might be redirected to a web page).
5. After you connect, your device may automatically bring up a web page with instructions on how to set up your Alexa device.
6. If it doesn’t, open a web browser and go to “” (or “” if you’re in the UK).
7. Choose “Settings” on the left-hand menu. If your Alexa device is already registered to your Amazon account, it should appear in the list of devices.
8. Click on your device name and then click “Connect to Wi-Fi.”
9. Follow the instructions on the screen to enter your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password.
10. Wait a moment while your Alexa device connects to your Wi-Fi network. The light on your device will turn blue when it’s connected.

## Troubleshooting
If you have trouble connecting your Alexa device to Wi-Fi, try the following:

– Make sure your device is close to your Wi-Fi router.
– Double-check your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password.
– Try resetting your device by holding down the mute and volume down buttons at the same time until your device’s light ring turns orange (about 20 seconds).
– If all else fails, try using the Alexa app to set up your device.

## Conclusion
Connecting Alexa to Wi-Fi without the app is easy and straightforward, although it does require a little extra effort. If you don’t want to use the app or don’t have access to it, following these steps will allow you to set up your device and start using Alexa to control your smart devices, play music, and much more.
