How to Fix Unable to Connect Kodi Problem

There are many reasons why unable to connect Kodi problem occurs. Here I have discussed solutions to solve the unable to connect Kodi problem. Try the solutions mentioned below:-

  • Check your Internet connection
  • Recheck the URL
  • Examine the source working properly
  • Update your Kodi add-ons
  • Reinstall Kodi software

#1. Check Internet Connection

When using Kodi with Firestick Lite, 4K, FireTVCube, or any platform, you must connect it through WiFi. If you have an issue with the network, the software automatically shows the error message “couldn’t connect to a network server.” At that time, recheck your internet to overcome the problem. Otherwise, move to the next solution.

#2. Check URL

If your network connection is working correctly, try another option, i.e., recheck the URL entered manually. Because most of the problem occurs due to incorrect URL, typing wrong HTTP protocol, using hyphens and extra space between URLs, etc.

To check the written URL, follow the steps given below:

  •  In Kodi, go to the Settings and click on the File Manager tab
  • Right-click on the repository name and edit the URL
  • Now, match the URL with your previously typed URL that is correct or not

#3. Examine the Source Working Properly

Although you have entered the URL correctly, it may be compatible with the add-on or not. Because every add-on has a unique URL during the installation process, your Kodi is not working might be the source issue. Sometimes, due to some reason, the repository source becomes unavailable.

To get rid of the problem, go to the web browser and type the URL in the address bar. Then, check whether the add-on source is available. If the source is available, it will display the files; otherwise, a 404 error will display. Also, you may get an error “Page is not working”.

#4. Update Kodi Add-ons

Another possible reason for the “Unable to connect Kodi” problem is that you do not have updated add-ons on Kodi. Generally, Firestick, Roku, or any device automatically notifies to install the updates. But, if Kodi shows a connection error, you should check whether addons are updated or not.

Follow the below steps to check pending add-ons updates.

  • Go to the Kodi home page
  • Click on the Add-ons tab
  • After that, select My add-ons option
  • Select the addon for which you want to check latest updates

#5. Reinstall Kodi Software

If still the Kodi unable to connect problem persists, uninstall and install the Kodi on Firestick. Download the latest Kodi version from Kodi’s official website to install the Kodi.
