One of my Echos (in the bedroom) has stopped working with my wifi.  I created a hotspot from my iPhone and it connected to that fine so it must be something with my network.  I have not changed any settings and my other Echo in the lounge is sweet as.  Any tips?

Does it make any difference if you physically move it closer to your wifi a/p?

I have had that twice, and had to reboot my router/dhcp server in the unifi gateway. Seems it was not dishing out an IP address to it despite other things getting IPs fine. Light just went red when I said alexa and it would say that it looks like my wifi network was not connected to the internet. Not the normal message of it being unable to connect to wifi.
