|This article provides troubleshooting steps if your frame has suddenly lost connection to a previously working WiFi network. If you had never managed to connect to your network in the first place, please visit this article for help.|
If your frame loses its WiFi connection, it will either display an "Offline" or "Couldn't join network [network name]" message on the screen. After 24 hours, your frame's screen reverts to the setup screen with the 4-digit code and a message alerting you that the frame has lost its WiFi connection.
Please try the following steps to reconnect your Aura frame.
1. Reboot your frame
Unplug and replug the power cord. Wait for your frame to power back on and initiate its connection with your WiFi network before troubleshooting further.
2. Check that your frame is attempting to connect to the correct WiFi network.
You can view the network details in the Aura App:
- First, open the app and tap on the "Settings" icon on the top left
- Next, tap on your frame name before scrolling down to where you'll see the option "WiFi Network."
- Do not tap on the Network Name unless you wish to change WiFi networks, as clicking this will disconnect the frame from its current network and prompt you to enter network details for a new WiFi network.
3. Reboot your router
Unplugging your router and plugging it back in can reset your router's network settings. This can help your frame re-establish it's connection to the correct 2.4GHz network. When you reboot your router, please attempt to reconnect your frame within 5 minutes as your router may revert back to it's previous settings.
When rebooting most in-home routers, it may take up to 10 minutes for the router to finish rebooting. The best way to check that your router has fully rebooted is by verifying your WiFi connection in your smart device's WiFi settings. During this time, you can also assess whether moving the frame closer to the router will help with the network connection.
4. Re-add the frame in the Aura App
Don't worry - this won't actually add a new frame! Tap your frame name at the bottom of the app home screen. Click "+ New Frame" and follow the steps to "Set Up A New Frame." Once your frame is connected to WiFi your photos will start to display immediately.
5. Forget the WiFi network on your device:

6. Check your network connection.
Use this iOS app or download the NetSpot app for Android devices to test your WiFi connection. If the network is weak, contact your Internet Service Provider who can install a WiFi booster or replace your router. This can make a big difference in regards to your frame's functionality and ability to stay connected to WiFi.
