    I am trying to get over my recent post about the door damage. Trying not to think about it :). Oh well..

    So, have been parking the car in the garage for the past couple of weeks and realized today that it hasn't been connecting to my home wifi. I do remember setting it up as soon as I brought it home...

    Do you know what could be causing it? Have Verizon FIOS internet at home and the signal isn't great in the garage but my phone can connect to the wifi (single bar). I was hoping Tesla would at least say that the SSID is not in range or something rather than just keeping it spinning (image above)

    Thank you.

    Many people have found that they need to add repeaters or move wireless routers closer to their garages, as the Teslas' ability to receive WiFi is not the greatest.

    Thanks Andy. But for me to change any wifi information (or add a new SSID), the wifi center should be initialized, right? Otherwise, how would I even add a new wifi entry? for example, if I want to add something at work.

    Well, yes, you'd need the message in your photo cleared. You could probably do that by rebooting, and/or by turning off Wifi, and then turning it back on. You may have to temporarily delete the profile for your home connection, just to get things cleared.
