Amazon firestick is the best thing that one can get to transform their traditional TVs into a smart TV with all the bells and whistles attached such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Not only that, but you will also be enjoying access to the premium Amazon Fire OS and all the thousands of applications that are available in the amazon store.
This is pretty great, but if you are facing some problem like the Fire OS saying adbLink Unauthorized error, that can get frustrating to fix. A few things that you can do in order to get the problem solved are:
Firestick adbLink Unauthorized
1) Shift to 2.4 GHz
Most of the times this problem is faced on the Wi-Fi networks that are using the 5 GHz frequency as that is not compatible with the Firestick and it can cause you to have some troubles. So, optimally, you will need to access your router settings and make sure that it is running on the 5 GHz frequency.
This way, you will be able to make sure that there are no such problems like having the problems with the Wi-Fi authentication. After you set it to 2.4 GHz that will optimally be solving the problem for you, and that will help you out solving the problem perfectly.
Another thing that you can try out in such scenarios is to restart the Firestick. It is pretty easy to make it work, and you don’t have to do much in order to make it work optimally. You just have to disconnect the Firestick from the HDMI port and let it rest for a minute or two.
After that, you can plug in the Firestick back and then restart the whole TV as well. This will be sorting out the problem most of the times for you, and you don’t have to face such problems afterwards.
If a restart is not working for you, you will have to manually reset the Firestick to default settings. It is pretty easy and you need to have the account credentials that were used to activate the Firestick. You just have to go the settings menu and reset your Firestick to default.
After that, you can activate it again by entering your Amazon account credentials and connect it to your primary Wi-Fi connection. This will help you out perfectly and after that there are no such problems that you will have to face with your Firestick.
