To fix your Owlet WiFi connection, follow these steps:

1. Click on the gear icon for the Owlet sock in the app: Open the Owlet app on your smartphone or tablet and navigate to the sock device. Look for a gear or settings icon, usually located in the top right corner of the screen. Click on it to access the settings menu for the sock.

2. Select “Change Wi-Fi”: Within the sock settings menu, you should see an option called “Change Wi-Fi.” This is where you can update the Wi-Fi connection for your Owlet sock. Click on this option to proceed.

3. Follow the instructions in the app: The app will guide you through the process of reconnecting to a Wi-Fi network. It may ask you to input your new network’s name (SSID) and password. Make sure to enter the correct information to establish a successful connection.

4. Base station remembers 5 most recent Wi-Fi networks: It’s important to note that the Owlet base station can remember up to 5 of the most recent Wi-Fi networks it has been connected to.
