One of the biggest problems relating to Wifi connection issues is diagnosing the seed of the emergence. The Roomba not connecting to Wi-Fi could either be due to poor internet connection from your ISP end or it could due to some internal issue with the Roomba vacuum.

You need to free up some bandwidth on your Wi-Fi network to give more bandwidth to Roomba.
