Connecting Kodi to Wi-Fi

In this short guide, we’re going to teach you how to connect Kodi on an Amazon Fire Stick to your Wi-Fi connection. If you aren’t familiar with using a Fire Stick, it’s possible that you aren’t aware of how to connect to Wi-Fi with Kodi. What we will tell you right now is that when using a Fire Stick, you won’t connect to Wi-Fi through Kodi. It needs to be done through the Settings Menu on the Fire Stick.

Before we Start

IPVanish VPN with Kodi

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:

  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.
