Re: Connecting Orbi to Alexa

The Echo/Echo Dot and Echo Show have different processes for connecting to wifi, which Echo device are you trying to connect ?

So the echo dot gets configured via the alexa app on your phone/tablet.

 

You put the dot into config mode, connect to it over wifi with your phone/tablet and then go through the steps to connect it to the Orbi.

 

What part of that process is not working ?

The Alexa app will not discover Orbi. The Wifi portion is working and Alexa is connected to the network via Orbi, but I want to integrate Alexa to turn the guest network on and off.
