Fetch Buffering

Help! My Fetch keeps buffering, what can I do?

Fetch buffering is a sign of WiFi or internet connectivity issues. In order to take a closer look at what’s going on, you should run the Fetch Internet Diagnostics scan.

To run the scan, simply follow the directions below:

Step 1: Press “Menu” button, then navigate to “Manage” then “Settings”.

Step 2: Press the “Paw” Button

Step 3: Navigate down to “Diagnostics”, then press the “Paw” button.

Step 4: Scroll down to “Internet”

This will run a series of tests that will check your WiFi or Ethernet Connection, your IP Address, your Internet Connectivity, and the Service Connection. Fetch only needs a speed of 3Mbps in order to operate. It is possible for it to be affected by issues such as WiFi Interference. If you discover that your WiFi is having difficulties, try moving the Fetch box closer to the router, or you can look into WiFi Extenders to reach difficult spots such as a far bedroom. For more information on troubleshooting WiFi related issues, see our help page here.
