So only The Android TV box is connected to the network in order to use it and enjoy the convenience it brings.
How to solve the problem that the Android TV box we purchased cannot display the Wi-Fi list?
First of all, we need to know what Wi-Fi is and how does it work.
What is WiFi？
WiFi stands for Wireless Fidelity and refers to a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance and is a wireless wireless local area network technology for devices based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, which aims to improve the interoperability between wireless networking products based on the IEEE 802.11 standard.
WiFi radio waves typically have a frequency of 2.4 gigahertz or 5.8 gigahertz. These two WiFi bands are then subdivided into multiple channels, each of which may be shared by many different networks at the same time.
Because WiFi relies on radio waves, WiFi networks can be disrupted by interference from other WiFi networks or various electronic devices, including microwaves, cordless phones, refrigerators, televisions, transistor radios, or Bluetooth devices.
2.4GHz center frequency range 2.412GHz-2.484GHz
There are 14 channels in total, 13 channels (1-13) available in China and 11 channels (1-11) available in the United States
Advantages: strong signal, low attenuation, strong wall penetration, long coverage distance
Disadvantages: narrow bandwidth, slow speed, large interference
5GHz center frequency range 4.915GHz-5.865GMz
A total of about 200 channels are divided, the channels available in various countries can be referred to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels
Advantages: Wider bandwidth, faster speed, less interference
Disadvantages: weak signal, large attenuation, poor wall penetration, short coverage distance
How do Android devices and iOS devices connect to Wi-Fi?
Step 1：Register and activate broadband service with your local telecom operator
Step 2：Connect the broadband network cable to the router’s network receiving port, so that the router becomes a network converter, and any electronic device that has the function of linking Wi-Fi can connect to the network. You can also link the router’s network outgoing port with an electronic device with a network receiving port through a network cable. Because the router’s network outgoing port can have 2 or more, you can link to several electronic devices at the same time through a network cable.
Step 3：Set the Wi-Fi name and link password according to the router manual
Step 4：Turn on WLAN (Android device) or Wi-Fi (iOS device) on the device connected to Wi-Fi，and find the Wi-Fi name, enter password and click Connect to the network.
