Lost remote, New WiFi I can’t connect without the remote.

I have a new WiFi. My Amazon Fire TV is stuck on my network settings screen. I lost the remote, and now cannot pair my device with my FireTv app on my phone. What do I do? Switched TVs, didn’t work. Unplugged it a million times. Is there no way to do a factory reset without having access to some kind of remote???

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you have lost your remote for your fire tv, (not related to firestick) and your TV is needing to be connected to the wifi. But you can't! Cause you don't have the remote. Then your like me, fml. However I was able to find a solution that worked!!!! I hooked a pc keyboard up through a USB port on the back of my TV, and was able to use that as a remote, find the wifi, and connect. Once my TV was connected the remote app for fire tv worked perfectly. Hope this helps! (BTW tried a mouse first with no success) KEYBOARD FOR THE WIN!

you must either A. purchase or borrow a new firestick remote and pair it to your firestick using home button.

B. Connect 1 smart phone to old ip addresses network as hotspot and use a 2nd smartphone to connect to your current ip address where ur internet resides and properly is confiugured, you then must download an app known as the fire stick tv remote emulator once doing this ur firestick should be operable from the hotspot using old ip reset the network through the firestick and forget the previous configured Ip address on ur firestick then reboot the firestick and re connect it using the emulator controller on smartphone that has working wifi. problem should be solved, i however have not tryed or attempted this nor do i properly know that i explained it 100% accurately but its tedious so involves some reserch but iv seen positive responses.

or C. connect to your computer the firestick via usb ( your firestick must previously already have usb and adb debug mode enabled in order for this to work )

1st step is to download adb for windows.

connect firestick to your computer via usb

once adb opens youll see a selection of options click new and add your firestick to it it should automatically find it.

click edit to add it manually,

then once its connected you should be able to connect it to your router and local internet using adb command prompt command lines, very easy to find on google the guide and commands. you can reconfigure the ip address for the firestick to connect it to a internet.

once all of this is complete plug the hdmi of ur firestick to your tv and use the keypad on ur adb to navigate through the firestick home interface to ur network to manually manage the internet connection without having to have a firestick amazon remote or application that wont work anyway unless its connected to a wifi connection in the first place. reboot firestick and enjoy ur repaired connection to your streaming device that is terribly designed for user friendly purposes.

or of course the last option if you have an ethernet adapter u can use it to connect ur firestick to a local network. I apologize for any false information i provided to the best of my knowledge I hope like heaven you get help from my info. if you could plese respond and leave feedback on a solution that worked for you involving *not having a firestick remote or anyway to connect it to an internet connection to navigate to change the old IP network* regards,

How do I connect my firestik to my new wifi without the old wifi information and with out a remote for the firestik

by

No remote and no access to the old wifi info....and so I'd hook the ethernet cord from what to what

by

I tried this method and it worked for me. Thanks for sharing this.

I renamed my mobile hotspot to the old wifi network with the same password (this is what the firestick TV is connected to, right). And then I connected another phone (which already has the firestick TV remote app) to my mobile hotspot. Voila! The firestick TV can now be controlled. I then changed the network settings.

by

Omg, reading the description on the procedure confused me, but you're simplified description, really helped me. Thanks so much. I went with out my fire stick for a week.

Complete Torture! This method really worked. Awesome

Had the same problem on my Samsung TV that was connected to the Firestick, apparently the TV remote to the Samsung TV works too as a remote for it. Just a heads up!

Posting in this thread.

I had this problem.No remote. Did forgot WiFi connection and struck at Home with no network connection.

Solved this by connecting a wired usb keyboard to firetv stick.

For me wired mouse, bluetooth mouse didn't work. I didn't try bluetooth keyboard.

Other options like Adb shell commands were useless because I must accept the USB debugging popup on screen which I can't without remote.

You can reset another firestick remote to work with it (Google the sequence) then set it up as so…

or use your android phone to make a hotspot and mimic the old WiFi name and password to your android’s hotspot name…

then take a second phone, join the same network (your android hotspot) and download fireTV app then use it for a remote

I used a USB keyboard and it was able to control the input so I could connect the tv back to wifi. Once connected to wifi I can use the FireTV remote app from there on.
