I noticed that as well.

We just moved into a new home and I moved my network keeping all settings. The grill hooked up to Traeger, but the app would not see the grill. Notifications came down, but no grill control.

I left it plugged in and on for the evening, and wouldn't you know it must have needed a firmware update. As it healed itself and all is good. We smoked Saturday night and the last Thursday with no issues and full control.

Downloading it now.

What's New in v1.4.2
* Minor enhancements and bug fixes.

Sounds like Traeger is slowly working out all of the bugs.

No changes with the new app update. iphone will connect to the grill, but the grill won't find the home network. This is garbage, should have never bought one of these things.

Is this for iPhone or Android? The latest version available in Google Play Store is still 1.4.1.

Bought one in early Jan. Have never been able to connect Traeger to my router. I am with you. Devices connecting to your router has become routine. Smart switches, Rokus, Doorbells and on and on. They advertise wifi like crazy and charge an extra $300 for it. They need to hire someone who knows what they are doing.

Your router is probably 5GHZ. The Traeger only works on the older 2.4GHZ frequency.

Iphone is Version 1.4.2

My iPhone just updated to 1.4.3 this morning. And my Pro 780 updated firmware yet again Sunday night. They are making changes. So if you can get that initial connection made, let it do it's updates, it will get smoother and smoother with each. Ours is running fine.

Welcome to the forum - What version of firmware is your grill running?

I just checked my iphone and the Traeger app is 1.4.3 (2) I assembled my 650 and connected to my wifi and seasoned it about three weeks ago. Went to use it the next day and the app showed smoker off line! Checked version and it was 2.0.0 :( Tired several times over several days and cant get it to connect to my wifi

My Pro 575 will not connect now and the WI-Fire is unusable since the update, called Traeger and they cannot figure it out. :(

When my 650 was connected to the wifi it did upgrade firmware to 20.00.00 but showed offline in the app
I did the factory reset after reading about it on these forms. Firmware is now 01.01.06 Still wont connect.
I turned on the hotspot on laptop and specified 2.4g hz. Connected iphone to hotspot and tried adding 650 to app and its fails. Don't know why it wants to join the traeger wifi network. I click join and then my iphone connects the the trager

Can you get the Traeger to connect to your home WiFi? If so, leave it connected, and see if it will upgrade the firmware. I had your same issue, wouldn’t connect to the app, because it wanted to connect to the Traeger. I left the grill for a bit and came back and saw the Traeger had updated. First try to reconnect and it connected perfectly to the App.

Make sure to forget the Traeger network on your phone after each attempt. And your WiFi network on the Traeger.
