I recently moved and had to get a new WiFi router. I went through the process of setting up the new router and connecting all my devices to it. I thought I was done, but then I realized that my Ring Doorbell was no longer working. I tried pressing the reset button and going through the setup process again, but it just wouldn’t connect. I even tried putting my old router back, but that didn’t work either. I was starting to get really frustrated.
Then, I remembered that I had seen something online about how to reconnect a Ring Doorbell to a new WiFi network. I went and found the article and followed the instructions. It was really easy and only took a few minutes. Now my Ring Doorbell is working again and I’m so relieved!

Ring Product Troubleshooting: Tips to Fix WiFi Issues
- If you are having trouble connecting your Ring Doorbell or Cam, first check that your WiFi is functioning properly. If you can connect to a WiFi network on your phone or computer, but your Ring device is unable to do so, try power cycling the router and then reconnect your device. This means unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in.
- Your router may need a reboot or reset if it is giving you trouble. To reboot your router: unplug it from the wall and plug it back in. To reset your router: press the small white button on the back of your router and hold for at least 10 seconds until all lights blink.
- You can also try deleting the product and then adding it back to your Ring account.
- If you need help with connectivity issues, please contact Ring Support by first searching the knowledge base. If you can’t find an answer there, then create a new support ticket by logging into your Ring account and navigating to the support tab.
