Hey PS lovers! you must be here because you might be facing the issue of ps4 not connecting to the hotspot. Do not feel downhearted because most people are facing the same issue.
I have seen many people complaining about the connection of the hotspot to the PS4. They are unable to connect the PS4 with the hotspot even if everything is fine. We will go through all the possibilities which can cause the issue to happen and also some easy fixes.
Wrong password or wifi
You might be wondering despite turning the wifi hotspot of your device on, why isn’t the PS4 getting connected to it. The reason might be that you are using either the wrong connection or the wrong password.
Try searching for the wifi hotspot of the device you want to attach your PS4 with. Find the compatible device and try again to connect it. Hopefully, now you are able to connect your wifi without any problem.
Using public wifi
You went to a hotel or any public gathering and your friend calls you that it is urgent to get online as soon as possible. What would you do in that case? Connect any public wifi if available.
If you are using a public wifi and you are thinking that I have successfully connected the PS4 to the connection and why still it is not working. You need to know that public wifis do not only need to be connected through passwords, they require web login or registrations.
This might be the reason why you are unable to play your games when you are in an emergency. Ask someone for the login access who is already using it and reconnect it.
Try to connect manually
If you are unable to connect the PS4 with the hotspot, then connect them manually. For the manual connection, enter the “SSID” and the password by yourself into the PS4 which would connect to the hotspot if it is available.
Restart your phone
If the wifi still does not connect after many attempts, try to restart your phone. This solves the problem in most cases.
Restarting solves many of the issues and can be a good tool for connecting the hotspot if it was not connecting before. After restarting, reconnect your PS4 and hopefully, it will be connected.
