After Successful pairing and Renaming the device it does not connect to wifi and Green light keeps blinking, tried to delete and repair but no luck.
One device is connecting and another - Does not.... :(
Try to create the same wi-fi network (same SID and same password, also, same security type) to your new route. Then, make sure that your devices are connected to the old router.
Turn-off the old router, turn-on the new router that already has the same wi-fi configuration.
This should work since the divices will look for the SID.
It worked for me.
I hope this can help you.
Hello guys! I could resolve this issue even with AES-security enabled... it was just a small detail. Please do the following:
I had the same problem with a number of BASIC switches. Strangely when I shifted from my phone (Android 7.1.2) to my tablet (Android 8.0.0) the problem disappeared !!!
Hi I had a similar problem on some of my POW and T1 switches, this is how I solved the problem:
(I broke it down to changes on your phone , switch and tablet (hot-spot))
I've never flashed any of my iteads and have managed to get them working fine.
The problem is when people change their router and don't remove the switches before hand.
Then when you try to connect them to your new router, they won't work.
The simple way that i do it is just create a second Sonoff account with a different email address' (just create one with your ISP). Then set them up as normal using this account. once they are working you can just leave them on this account or delete them whilst they are connected and then switch back to your original account and connect them as normal to that. I've got about 18 switches working at the moment and after having the same problem as everyone else, that was how i fixed it.
Once you figure it out it's quite simple. It's also best to pair them with a phone and not a tablet, as phones can change from the iteads wifi to your home wifi faster than tables do.
I've got some of the 5/12v boards, and they have been the same. create a new account and they work fine. I also as it happens control them all with Alexa, i never use a phone to control them, just to add them.
I can't say I've been paying attention to your comments, i just get emails now and again from posters and just picked up your one today.
No one is stopping you flashing them with whatever you want, all i was offering you was a simple solution that works, and save you having to do that.
I don't even see the issue as a problem anymore. What is actually causing it in the first place is the boards security, it's not going to let you change networks with the same account without first deleting it via your original network. Once you get your head around that it's not an issue.
1, Delete the original app on your phone.
2, Get a new email address from your ISP
3, Re download the Sonoff app and create a new sonoff account with that email.
4, Connect them via the phone, just as you would a brand new one out the box.
5, Once they work, delete them from this account whilst they are connected to it.
6, Log out of this new account , and re log in to your original Sonoff account with your original email and reconnect them as normal.
If you control them with Alexa, you may find that when you tell alexa to discover devices, and then try to control them. She may say that there are two devices with that name which one do you want?
Ignore that. Go to your Alexa app, Down to smart home, then devices, then down to the bottom of the page and click forget all. Then either click Discover next to forget or just tell one of your echo's to discover devices, that will then repopulate this list with all your devices.
Most important when finished.
1, Sit down and chill out.
2, Have a beer and consider yourself triumphant.
Well our unlucky then mate, because it works for everyone else. This isn't the only place I've discussed it.
Sorry Steve Christie, we're not unlucky, it seems you're lucky. Your method doesn't work for me either. I now have 6 Ewelink accounts with different email addresses, and I've tried on 2 Android and 1 iOS device, and no luck.
The device connects to my WiFi router (confirmed in the router software), but it can't seem to reach the mothership. Just keeps flashing twice every 2 seconds.
I also tried Neil Walker's and Ed Marion's solutions, same thing. My device has the correct WiFi credentials, and it actually does connect to the WiFi (although it pretends not to, the router confirms that it is connected).
Thanks for the tips anyway.
