SOLVED! - Droid Turbo Won’t Connect To Wi-Fi

It’s not uncommon for bugs to disrupt the functions of Droid Turbo so if your Droid Turbo won’t connect to Wi-Fi, bugs could be responsible.

Droid Turbo Not Connecting To Wi-Fi: Reasons

Usually, it takes little work to connect Droid Turbo to wireless networks but in the case that your Droid Turbo won’t connect to Wi-Fi, keep in mind these suspects:

  • Bugs.
  • Password.
  • Distance.
  • Corruption. 

A Few Fixes 

Restart 

  • Step 1: Press and hold the Power button then tap Power Off. 
  • Step 2: Allow your phone to shut down all the way. 
  • Step 3: Press and hold the Power button then let go the moment the device vibrates.

Note: Depending on the situation, it’s a good idea to restart the Wi-Fi router as well. A lot of models nowadays have a built-in power button that you could use to turn them off/on. Still, if have a hard time locating the power button of your router, feel free to unplug it, wait for a minute and plug it back in. Once the router is up and running, proceed to connect your Droid Turbo to the wireless network and witness the result. 

Turn Wi-Fi Off And On 

  • Step 1: On the home screen, swipe down from top to bottom. 
  • Step 2: Locate the Wi-Fi icon then hit it once to turn Wi-Fi off.
  • Step 3: Hit the Wi-Fi icon again to turn Wi-Fi on.

Enable And Disable Airplane Mode 

  • Step 1: On the home screen, swipe down from top to bottom. 
  • Step 2: Locate the Airplane Mode icon then hit it once to enable Airplane Mode.
  • Step 3: Hit the Airplane Mode icon again to disable Airplane Mode.

Check Out The Passwords 

If your Droid Turbo only struggles to connect to one wireless network, there is a good chance that you have entered the wrong password. For instance, you could have missed some numbers/characters, messed up the uppercase and so on. To be thorough, you should take a look at the password to make sure that you have entered it correctly. For ease of convenience, hit the eye icon to reveal the password. 

Give Distance Some Thought 

In case you don’t know, to connect your Droid Turbo to a wireless network, you must stay within the range of the network source (router). If the distance between you and the router is too great, it’s only natural that your Droid Turbo would be unable to connect to Wi-Fi. On the bright side, if distance is the root of the problem, all you have to do is to get closer to the router.
