If your Pixel 8 is not connecting to WiFi, there are several steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue. Here are some solutions:
- Check settings & restart: Make sure Wi-Fi is on. Then turn it off and on again to reconnect. Make sure Airplane mode is off. Then turn it on and off again to reconnect. Press your phone’s power button for a few seconds. Then, on your screen, tap Restart.
- Forget and reconnect to Wi-Fi network: From your settings menu, open up your Wi-Fi network settings and scan through the available network names until you find yours. Press and hold on the network name and tap “Forget Network.” Once it’s disabled for a couple of minutes, try reconnecting. You’ll be prompted to enter your Wi-Fi password.
- Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth: Open your phone’s Settings app. Tap System Reset options Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth. At the bottom, tap Reset settings.
- Check Wi-Fi network and router: Make sure your Wi-Fi connection is still on and active. Look for the Wi-Fi icon and tap it to turn it off. Wait a few seconds and tap it again to enable it. Your Google Pixel phone will begin scanning for an open network connection and should start reconnecting momentarily. Troubleshoot your router by resetting it.
- Reboot your Google Pixel: Reboot your phone by pressing and holding the power button for a few seconds. Once the phone has turned off, press and hold the power button again to turn it back on.
If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact your phone manufacturer or service provider for further assistance.
