6. If it still doesn't work, usually the problem is related to the router settings. If conditions permit, prepare an additional cellphone with a 2.4Ghz network connection and turn on the Personal Hotspot.
How to turn on Personal Hotspot? This option varies by cellphone. Taking the iPhone as an example, we can select Settings > Mobile Communication or Mobile Data or Settings > Internet Sharing > Click the button next to Allow others to connect to turn on the Personal Hotspot.


7. If using an iPhone 12 and above that provides a hotspot, make sure that "Maximize Compatibility" is enabled.
If conditions permit, temporarily turn off the Wi-Fi router to avoid interference and misoperation.

8. Repeat step 5.

9. If it still doesn't work, please contact us by clicking "Profile Page" - "Feedback" in the SwitchBot App, and provide the following information:
