Re: PS4 Won't detect my WiFi

Sep 26, 2016

My PS4 used to detect my wifi. My PS4 has seen three different routers with different wifi feeds. With that being said, they all worked until recently where for no reason the wifi signal "is too weak". I can see it on the list of signals. That's not the case though as all my other items using wifi are doing great. The PS4 will run hard wired from the same router just fine. Thoughts?! Help!

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WITH THE ANSWER. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY MY MOBILE HOTSPOT WOULDN'T BE DISCOVERED. IT'S BECAUSE IT WAS ON 5GHZ. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

@redslead did you ever figure out a solution im having the exact same problem where my wifi wont recognize any wifi routers in the area ( my router is literally 2 feet away from my system ) and also my controllers wont power up my ps4 anymore by pressing the power button on the controller.

Hey, I found a fix, but it's complicated all you have to do is have your PS4 near a laptop or a PC and have one of those connected to the 5 gigahertz internet Network (if compatible) then simply connect an Ethernet cable to the ps4 and choose LAN/Ethernet connection instead of WiFi in network settings! Hope that helps 😃

Had the same issue so what I did was changing the Channel Bandwith to 20Mhz instead of the default on my router which is 20/40Mhz.

 

Now it works =)

No 5GHZ? I'm a massive playstation fan but this is disappointing, my s7 edge can even detect 5GHZ.
