I have had a Ring Video Doorbell 2 that has been connected (weakly, usually) to my main wifi for over 8 months. After my most recent time of charging it, it will no longer connect to my internet OR the new wifi extender network I have. I am 1000% sure of the password I am typing in. Here’s what happens:
It starts fine.
The white circle spins.
I click the button my my phone to say it is spinning.
I go to my wifi and change over to the Ring network.
I go back to the app and it says the Ring device is looking for wifi networks.
It finds all of them and I choose either one.
I type in the password.
My phone now says, reconnecting your phone to the wifi. This never completes. I have to manually do this.
The device has the blue ring that flashes from bottom to top (like it is connecting to the wifi), but then changes to a flashing white light on the left side (according to all documentation, a problem with the internet…).
After I connect my phone back to the actual wifi, it just shows the video with the device and the blue flashing like it SHOULD be doing, but isn’t. Also, the device stops flashing at all and there are no lights on it.
After about 30 seconds, a popup appears asking what the device is doing. No choice here matters at it either goes back to the previous screen for another 30 seconds before the popup returns. The white flashing light on the left option says, fix your internet. I put the device on top of the router, just to show, that isn’t it. I am hitting almost 80 Mbps on my speed test.
I performed the hard reset (held orange button down for 25 seconds) and tried again, this time adding it as a new device. Nothing.
Other than beating this thing with a hammer, any ideas?
