Amazon FireStick Not Connecting To WiFi: Troubleshooting Steps to Follow
If your Amazon fire stick is giving you a hard time in connecting to the wireless network, you can follow the troubleshooting steps below to fix the problem:

Many times, Firestick won’t connect to WiFi because something is wrong with the router. Thus, you need to check a few things with the router. Check that if your router is functioning fine and does not have any restriction or limitation that may prevent the firestick from connecting to the Wi-Fi. Make sure that your router has DHCP enabled. Otherwise, you need to assign a static IP address to your firestick.
In case the number of connected devices on the Wi-Fi reaches the limit, you can either increase the number of connections or disconnect one of the devices to make space for your Amazon FireStick.
