Wi-Fi Not Working on the Google Pixel 2/2 XL – What to Do

Wi-Fi connectivity is essential to all smartphones. Basically, it’s what allows them to be “smart”. Therefore, if a problem occurs here, many of the features you’re accustomed to will be unusable. Because we are well aware of how frustrating this can be, we’ll provide you with several potential solutions you can try at home. Hopefully, one of them will work and you won’t have to seek outside help.

Potential Solutions

If Wi-Fi isn’t working on your Pixel 2/2 XL, you can try the following:

Select “Network & internet”, then “Wi-Fi”. Tap and hold your home network. When the next menu pops up, press “Forget network”. After that, select “Add network” from the same menu and try to reconnect.

If you are sure about it, just go to the same menu as you did when you reset the network settings. However, choose “Factory data reset” instead. Follow the onscreen prompts and press “Erase everything” at the end.


After attempting everything on this list, there’s basically nothing more you can do on your own. If the Wi-Fi is still not working, it’s likely your Pixel 2/2 XL has some sort of a hardware malfunction. Therefore, you will need to have an expert take a look.
