We understand where you're coming from, ducati94. We'll notify our Email Support Team about this.
Hi, deanonet. Let's sort this out. What's the current firmware that your WEMO App and WEMO switches are running on? If you're having challenge in updating the firmware, powercycle your WEMO Switch and your Wi-fi router. You may also force close the WEMO App.

I have app version 1.15 running on Android 5.0 with both units running WeMo_WW_2.00.10062.PVT-OWRT-SNS.
As stated in my first message, I have power cycled and reset these units so many time I am sick of touching them. The issue wih updating is that the units will not stay online (almost immidiately after resetting the amber light starts flashing again) so phone cannot see units to do firmware update. Also force close app all the time, most of these things I have already reseached and tried to fix that many times but problem is getting worse.

Understood. Since you have already done basic troubleshooting, we'll have our 2nd level support team check your devices. Just email us your contact details at WemoCares@belkin.com so that we can escalate your case.

I'm having the same issue as others and I'm getting sick of it. Any time I A) restart my router or B) restart / update my Wemo Link; I cannot reconnect it to my Wi-Fi, and have to factory reset the Link then add all the bulbs again. It's a joke.
On 11 January I received a notification that there was some new firmware. I chose to update and once again my Wemo Link was unresponsive (flashing / disconnected). No number of Wemo or router restarts will get it to reconnect, so I’m back to square one and must set everything up again; reconnecting the Link, adding and renaming all my bulbs again...
We have numerous other devices in our house that reconnect automatically after a router restart - phones, tablets, solar data logger, computers, TVs… but my Wemo Link never reconnects. It seems like incompetence to me, given the amount of people in this situation. I see responses from support like ‘try restarting your router’, but restarting my router IS WHAT CAUSES THE ISSUE!
Why can't it just remember the settings and reconnect?

Hello, ahilios. Your Wemo Switch should not forget the Wi-Fi connection if the power goes out. Have you tried to check if the router's SSID is not hidden when the power turns back on? For further isolation, try to observe and test if you're also experiencing this challenge with your other wireless devices. We believe this may have something to do with the router's settings, and not the Wemo device itself.
With regard to the update, try to uninstall/re-install the app to make sure that you have the latest. Once done, you may follow the steps on this link.
