Problem solved folks. I use a hidden network and don’t have SSID broadcast turned on. Apparently the Alexa app cannot connect to hidden networks. You have to broadcast the SSID during setup, then youand can go ahead and hide it again afterwards. No ideaonce you’re connected. However, if ityour connection drops for any reason, the Echo will reconnect after losing connectivity thoughno longer be able to connect.
