If you’ve recently changed the password to your wi-fi network, you’ll need to re-enter it into your ecobee. To do so, please follow these steps:

Go to Menu > About > Wi-Fi.


Scroll down to select Connected to Wi-Fi Router. If it says no, please set up your wi-fi by going to Menu > Settings > Wi-Fi.




Select Network, and then your network name. Enter your password to connect.
