Switch Hub unable to connect to router


The hub cannot connect to the router.

Phone OS: Andriod 6.0.1

Switch link firmware: v3.0-0.8

App version: v3.8.2


The initial message is: Connecting to the device - this seems to work.

Then, I entered the Wi-Fi password; now the message is: trying to connect to router.

Next message is: "The internet configured error"

The hub color stays red.

The wi-fi password is correct; I can even see the MAC address of the hub show up in the router DHCP table -- but, that does not succeed. My wi-fi is not 5g.

I have reset all many times; same error.

I had the same problem too with the Hub Plus, but the message stayed at " trying to connect to router ". The Hub color stayed blue the whole time.

Hi Suresh,


We had some conversation via email, and our team is still expecting your confirmation.


Hi CoNghiep,


Don't hesitate to drop an email to us at with info below.


Basic Info List:

Mobile Device Model: e.g. iPhone 6 plus

Mobile Device System: e.g. iOS 11.1.2

SwitchBot APP Version: e.g. 2.4.1

SwitchBot Firmware Version: e.g. V4.2

SwitchBot Hub Firmware Version: e.g. V3.0-0.8, or no Hub available

SwitchBot Account Email: e.g.

SwitchBot purchased from: e.g., amazon store name

Issue Description: (What was the error prompt? Problem frequency: every time, or from time to time? Did it work well, or it had problem since the beginning? When was the first time you notice the problem?)

Screenshot or Video Link:

1. App Home

2. App left-side menu bar

3. App Device List

(Any others if applicable)




P.S. Recently, we managed to identify some issues on SwitchBot Hub (Plus) Internet connecting, some causes are:

1. WEP and WPS are not supported by SwitchBot Hub (Plus) for security concern. Make sure your router is using WPA2 or WPA1.

2. We noticed that in some regions, the Hub (Plus) may have difficulty for IPv6 communication. Disable the IPv6 service on your router (if not used) will remedy the problem.

3. App from unauthorized App Market. Right now, we only release Apps on Apple App Store and Google Play. There might be unexpected problem if you are using App from any other App Market.


Hope we could address your problem ASAP.

My order for another Switch Bot Hub plus should arrive today. I will test it out according to what you said.

    I have a number of different kinds of smart devices assigned to particular rooms in my google home, including switchbots. when I give a specific command for a switchbot, it works fine, but if I give a room level command, such as, turn on all the living room lights, all of the devices in the living room respond, except for the switchbot (even though they are most definitely assigned to that room in Google home). This occurs in every room where I have a switchbot, and all batteries are fine on the switchbots, so this is a program level issue. please tell me how to fix this, or if you are already aware that this is an issue that you are working on currently.

    Hi,there. I'm doubted that even this writings are written on your post :) On the feedback messanger, you guys asked me to upload my firmware info on my app and devices. And I sent you and waited for 4 days(2days if counting business days). Today, I got the message I didnt reply anything. Wow.... A week ago, I firstly post that your device doesn't recognize the basic timer and the things I've been replied are what is your firmware version? and ignoring messages...

    La télécommande freebox semble être une telecommande radio et non IR. Impossible de l’ajouter au hub ??
