info

Received a 'Connection Failed' message in the app while connecting?

The purifier Wi-Fi indicator can help identify what went wrong.

If you've not seen a Wi-Fi indicator:

  • The purifier Wi-Fi indicator must be flashing green in order for the product to be visible in the list of available networks. Select 'Try reconnecting' in the app and follow the on screen instructions.

 

If the Wi-Fi indicator on the machine is still flashing green, the connection is likely to have failed because your machine was unable to connect to your home network:

  • Make sure that your purifier is not too far from your router.
  • Check that you are trying to connect your purifier to a 2.4GHz network, your purifier cannot connect to a 5GHz network.
  • Make sure you have entered the correct home network password.
  • There may be a problem with your router, even if other connected devices are still working. Restarting your router may fix this. Most routers simply need to be unplugged and plugged back into their power source to restart them. Please refer to your routers documentation for specific instructions.
  • If you have hidden your home Wi-Fi within your router settings, unhide it. The purifier cannot connect to hidden networks.
  • If you are using mac address filtering on your home network, make sure you have added the purifier's mac address to the list. This information can be found to the Wi-Fi sticker.

 

If the Wi-Fi indicator on the machine is white, the machine has connected to your home network but has been unable to connect to the Dyson cloud:

  • Make sure that your home Wi-Fi is connected to the internet and select 'Try reconnecting'.
