Tim Hortons Wi-Fi Not Working: Easy Guide To Fix

Last Updated on August 5, 2023 by Ron D. Morgan

Years ago, Tim Hortons became one of the coffee chains to offer fire Wi-Fi service to customers. The wireless internet access is available in all their locations across the country.

To connect to their Wi-Fi network, you need to click on the network icon on your device and connect to the Tim Hortons network.

If you are having issues connecting to the Tim Hortons Wi-Fi in your location, I understand how frustrated you feel now.

Most times, it could be that the Wi-Fi signal in your location is weak. If you are trying to connect from outside, enter the coffee store and try connecting again. Also disconnecting and reconnecting to the network can fix the issue. 

Continue reading to find out other reasons why you can’t connect your device to the Tim Hortons Wi-Fi network. The latter part of the post provides steps to help you fix the issue in no time.

Why Is The Tim Hortons Wi-Fi Not Working On Your Device?

Below is a breakdown of some of the possible reasons why your device can’t connect to the Tim Hortons wireless network:

a. Poor Network Signal In the Location

The Tim Hortons Wi-Fi signal is not strong in all their locations. There are locations with stronger Wi-Fi signals than other locations. It could be that you are in a location with a poor Wi-Fi signal.

Also, know that the farther you go from the Tim Hortons location, the weaker the signal becomes.

b. VPN Activated In Device

I know there are several reasons why you have your VPN activated on your device. But if you are trying to connect to a public Wi-Fi like Tim Hortons Wi-Fi, your VPN may be an issue. This is because the VPN will likely disrupt the network connection.

c. Issues With Your Device

The issue may be from your device instead of the wireless network. For instance, it may be that your DNS setting is wrong.

Most smart devices update DNS settings when you connect to a new network. But there are instances when the settings don’t update. What happens is that it will disrupt network connectivity.

d. Browser Cache Full

The issue may be from the browser you are using to access the internet and not the wireless network. It could be that the browser cache is full. You need to clear your browser’s cache to fix the issue.

Ways To Fix Tim Hortons Wi-Fi Not Working

These are some easy tips to try to fix the connection issue.

a. Step Inside

As mentioned earlier, the farther you are from the coffee shop, the weaker the Wi-Fi signal becomes. If you are still outside, step into the coffee shop and try connecting to the network again. If it still doesn’t work, you can proceed to try any of the tips below.

b. Disconnect and Connect To Network
