    Please help connecting to Wifi

    Hi, I am trying to connect to wi-if - either my home WiFi (which extends to my garage) or my phone hotspot. I read on the Tesla site “Touch Controls > Wi-Fi icon at the top of the Controls screen. Model 3 begins to scan and display detected Wi-Fi networks that are within range.” On controls...

    Car won't connect to wifi

    I use my phone as a Hotspot but lately the car won't connect to it. Also, it used to show a list of available wifi, but it doesn't do this anymore. My phone still connects with the car to Summon, etc. Is this a known problem?

    Disconnecting from Wi-Fi

    My model 3 long range was delivered last week. Since having the car I’ve noticed it’s due a software update, so I set about following the steps to upgrade. I initially connected to my home wifi router and tried to download the update, but noticed that the Wi-Fi signal was weak and kept dropping...

    Slow wifi connection, what’s everyone’s average connection speed?

    My Model Y is parked right next to the router with a gigabit up/down connection over the 5gz band. I average 10-20 mb/s up/down average. What kind of network speed is everyone else getting with their Tesla’s?

    dsl modem/router to Netgear extender to Model S

    After my MCU upgrade, I can't connect my car to my wifi. I get a message in car "Unable to obtain IP address. Please check DHCP server settings. I believe the problem is that the Netgear EX 7000 interferes with the DHCP functioning of the DSL Modem/Router. I have only Mac stuff and therefore...

    Any Tips for WiFi Issues? Can't Connect anymore

    I've had my 2019 X since October 2019, never had this problem and then in the last 45-60 days or so this started and I can't get it to stop. It will no longer connect to my wifi. To be clear, I changed nothing. I'm in IT, and I actually have a hotspot in my garage for my cars and other home...

    [MX][2017]Geen WiFi verbinding

    Hoi, Vandaag gemerkt dat onze MX100D uit 2017 geen verbinding meer wilt maken met onze WiFi netwerken en zelfs niet meer met de iPhone hotspot. De auto ziet wel een aantal WiFi netwerken uit de buurt, waaronder eentje van ons huis, maar mijn andere WiFi punten, waarvan eentje voor de auto...

    HW3 and Broken WiFi

    The Bellevue Service center finally sent back my Model X. They had it for over a week and while their results were less than satisfactory, they're saying that there is nothing they can do to improve it--even on their own network. In the past two years, after the initial setup, when I pulled my...

    HW3 and WiFi Networks

    Angel, my Model X, was selected to be upgraded with the new HW3 boards. When I got it home I was unable to establish a connection to my home network. I have a sophisticated network, I grant you, but I have brought literally dozens of devices into the house and been able to connect to all of them...

    Service Nightmare

    What a nightmare. I got the system upgrade last week and when I got home, the car would not connect to my WiFi without an error message. We've discussed this here and on Facebook at length and none of the suggestions fixed it. I made a mobile service request and today a week later, the tech...

    Wifi/LTE Antenna Strength - Data Points/Questions

    Curious if others are having the same issues I am and if it's hardware or software. When I connect my TM3 to my iPhone 11 Pro's Personal Hotspot I get MAX (3) WiFi Bars in Drivers Seat.

    Can't update SW?

    Hiya all My one-month old Model 3 LR suddenly decided to stop offering up AC on its first roadtrip. This was suboptimal given that it was 105°F out and it was a few hundred miles back to home in what is now a mobile greenhouse. TSLA Roadside assistance had me go through a few reboots...

    TeslaCam & WiFi problems

    I've just today taken delivery of a new Model 3 LR. I can't drive it yet, because of the way Tesla handles deliveries in Rhode Island, where there is as yet no Tesla store (I've got to wait to receive paperwork from Tesla, after which I can go to the DMV to get plates). Anyhow, I've been...

    I've had my PW2 since late July 2018 and at least the 1.15 release of the firmware.
