Where can I find the part my dot won’t connect and I have been going crazy trying to find the motherboard

I have searched so much on the internet for Echo Dot motherboard, but I don’t find any source where you can buy its motherboard. If your device is under guarantee then you should apply for replacement. Otherwise you need to buy a new device again and reconnect your device with your Alexa App. To download and setup your Alexa account, visit http://alexa-echo-help.com/

In the Alexa app, you can also request many of the same things you might request of Alexa through an Amazon Echo device. You can ask for any location-based information, such as the weather or any local restaurants. If you do not know about Alexa App setup or echo dot setup then visit https://www.downloadappsetup.com

This is true and very useful. I can ask Alexa the same questions through the app on my smartphone even when I am away from my Echo devices. Obviously I cannot control my home devices this way unless I am physically at home.
