Yesterday i turn on my traeger and saw that i had a updated version of the app,, its now called 2.0.2

And the whole business of getting it to connect to wifi starts over, this is the 3 time i had to start all over to get it to connect.
And every time i succed, only to realize that traeger has updated the grill or app, and i have to redo the whole bloody thing.
I'm so freaking pissed of right now..
Spend most of the day trying to get it to connect to the wifi it was on monday... now it's weak signal can't connect.....
How the hell can it be a weak signal,, when it was connect to the same network 2 days ago...

It doesn't make any sence.!!!!! :(:(:(

Your talking about the firmware update on the grill...
I'm talking about the app on the phone.

I'm already having the new firmware for the grill and running 500F, and was connect to the wifi with the new firmware.

But then the traeger app for my android phone updated, and now i'm back to square 1, trying to connect to the wifi.

I did that, and deleted the app twice..
I'm still getting a "weak signal..." When I try to connect the grill to my WiFi. Was working fine before they updated the app.

I ended up doing a factory reset. using this https://www.reddit.com/r/Traeger/comments/f4aq33
The firmware went back to V2.00.01, (i was on 2.01.00) but the grill still goes to 500F.?

Didn't do anything to my wifi connection issues, it will pick up any wifi in the area, but not the one its right next to.
Getting more and more frustrated, thinking about returning the unit and buying another brand.
But since its used now, its probably a no-go.

Hello, and this solves the problem of the app using the Android operating system. Will this solution come from Traeger? I myself can no longer connect to WiFi with the app update. Thanks.

It didn't work for me.
I also lost WiFi connection with the new app.

I was having issues with connecting before the app update. The new update seems to be a lot better. No issues since the upgrade.

Trying to make sense of the whole situation.
What firmware are you on?

I was on fimware 2.01.00 , then i resat the grill and it went back to firmware 2.00.1
None helped.
I haven't been able to connect to the wifi after the app updated to version 2.0.2
I'm on android.
