Why your smartphone does not “see” Wi-Fi: the most common reasons

In today's world, where uninterrupted access to the Internet has become an integral part of our lives, problems with connecting to Wi-Fi can cause real stress. Especially annoying is the situation when your smartphone suddenly stops “seeing” home network This can happen for a variety of reasons, from simple settings on your device to more complex technical issues with your router or network infrastructure.

Problems detecting your home Wi-Fi network on a smartphone can have different reasons. Let's consider the main sources of malfunctions and ways to eliminate them.

Smartphone malfunctions:

  • Check if the device can see other networks.
  • Try restarting your phone or Wi-Fi module.
  • Remove the bulky case if you have one.
  • Scan your device for viruses.
  • Update software.
  • If all this did not help, reset the phone to factory settings.

Problems with the router:

  • Reboot the router several times.
  • Make sure that the Wi-Fi sharing function is activated in the settings.
  • Change the transmission channel in the router settings.
  • Check the operating mode.

Other possible reasons:

  • Large distance between devices.
  • Frequency incompatibility (2.4 GHz vs 5 GHz).
  • Phone settings that hide weak signals.

Additional steps:

  • Reset your phone's Wi-Fi settings.
  • Restore the factory settings of the router.

If none of the methods helped, physical damage to the Wi-Fi module of the smartphone is possible, which requires diagnosis at a service center. Remember that some problems may be related to your ISP, so contact their support if necessary.
