 Troubleshoot jiofi.local.html – link not opening

Although the dashboard utility page should open without issues, but in case you are facing issues, this troubleshooting guide is here. There can be plenty of reasons why the jiofi.local.html page is not opening and some of the reasons (with solutions) are mentioned below –

Bad network reception

This is a very common issue that most people face a number of times. Since JioFi makes use of the tower-network reception of the embedded Jio SIM card, signal drops are common. In case the device is not getting a good signal strength, you may face issues in accessing websites/content. Be sure to place your Jio-Fi device in an open location so that it gets proper signals.

Distance between router and device

Placing it deep inside your house can cause network reception issues. Also, in case you are using it for your laptops and smartphones/tablets, do not go too far away from the device. Distance between the device and JioFi router can cause connectivity issues.

Not connected to the router

You have to be 100% sure that your device is well-connected to the JioFi router to access jiofi.local.html. Since it’s the URL for the local IP address of the router, it needs to have a direct connection to the device. Be sure that the Wi-Fi on your device is turned on and that the connected network is hosted by Jio-Fi. Other devices will get a 404 error – i.e. page not found an error in case they are not connected to the router.

Local issue in the device

It is also highly probable that your device is facing some issues. This issue can be software or even browser-related. In order to get it rectified, you can try accessing jiofi local html on some other web browser. If the issue still isn’t resolved, you can try restarting your device and accessing the URL again.

Using https instead of http (http //jiofi.local.html)

A lot of users simply use https instead of http for the jio.local.html link and it doesn’t open. The problem that lies over here is that – since it makes use of the local machine to open, the https doesn’t work. The https protocol is meant for websites that have an SSL certificate and not for devices that can be hosted using local machines.

How to make voice calls, video calls using 2G, 3G & 4G smartphones using JioFi?

The best thing about JioFi is that it allows non-Jio users to avail themselves of all of the benefits. One doesn’t necessarily have to have Jio as his/her service provider or even a 4G LTE enabled device to make it work. JioFi only requires one thing, which is – a Wi-Fi enabled device. This device can be a laptop, desktop, tablet or a smartphone that has Wi-Fi access. Jio users get the benefit of making unlimited voice and video calls for absolutely free using their service-provider apps. Okay, so in order to do so –

  • Download Jio4GVoice on your Android device from Google Play Store.
  • Once it has been downloaded, open it and click on the option that says JioFi.
  • A verification OTP will be sent to your JioFi alternative number.
  • Enter the OTP and get it verified.
  • Once it is verified, you can video call, voice-call and text-message to any number using your non-Jio device.

In order to make calls – you first need to open Jio4GVoice app (now known was JioCall). It has a totally reworked interface (instant messenger interface). Those of your contacts who are using this app will be showcased in the app. Simply press on a contact and you can connect with the person easily. You can either send instant messages, video calling, or audio calling easily. It even has support for GIFs, sketch and stickers as well to keep the chatting experience interesting.

Users will have to copy and paste the latest firmware file in the SD card and insert it into the Jio-Fi router. Using the steps mentioned earlier, users can update their routers easily. This process is just like other router users who use it for mainstream broadband connections.

The maximum speed totally depends on the bandwidth of the connection that you’re getting. Ideally, the download speed promised is 150 Mbps whereas the upload speed is 100 Mbps. This is the top speed that you can get with this device. However, in case of a good network reception, you can get around 50 Mbps to download and upload speeds, but for that, you need to configure the router via the jiofi.local.html page.
WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup and the button is basically a security key. As long as the WPS is enabled, trusted-users will be able to connect to your Jio-Fi device. WPS lets users login using the Wi-Fi password. In case the WPS option is not enabled, the hosted network will be open to public.
