Amazon Echo is a set of portable smart speakers that gives a tough competition to Google Home devices. It offers an Amazon Alexa voice assistance feature for performing tasks and giving answers to queries. However, some of the Amazon Echo users are experiencing 7-3-0-0-1 Error code while trying to connect their Amazon Echo or Echo Dot device to the Wi-Fi router.

This particular issue is happening to a lot of users especially while using the device with Windows 10 and macOS platforms. It seems that somehow the Smart Network Switch has been enabled on your Android device and that causes such an issue to Amazon Echo devices. Meanwhile, having an inconsistent internet network or issues with the cache data can also trigger such problems.

Whereas if the Wi-Fi security protocols are set to WPA/WPA2 on your router that can also cause connectivity issues with the Amazon Echo devices. Multiple reports are coming out that Amazon Echo lineup devices can’t function properly on TKIP encrypted networks. Sometimes an outdated Bluetooth driver on your computer may also affect connectivity.
