Make sure your internet connection is stable by observing the LED lights on your router, indicating signal strength. Try rebooting your Wi-Fi router, and move it closer to your projector for best results. Verify your Wi-Fi signal strength by visiting Speedtest

If network problems persist, connect via your mobile hotspot instead. Consider this could become pricey, depending on your data plan.

Once completely reset, relaunch the app and see if the problem has been resolved.
