If your force plates aren't connecting try these quick solutions (in this order):

Solution 3

  1. Turn off your WiFi on the device.
  2. Turn the WiFi back on.
  3. Repeat the steps in 'Solution 1'

Solution 4

You might be in an overly crowded signal area (i.e. your force plates are searching for multiple signals around you, including the device you're trying to connect to). This might happen in an area such as a large arena.

  1. Place your device on the ground right next to the force plates and repeat the steps in 'Solution 1'
  2. You may also have to find a private WiFi source in a crowded area with public WiFi. Talk to the media people nearby, they usually have access to a private WiFi network. You can also establish a local hotspot from your personal cellular device.

Solution 5

  2. You may also want to try turning off/on your WiFi router.
