Oh!  if it were only that simple.
Ever since I updated to IOS11.3 I have had problems with Siri.  I wake him up 
and ask my question. 
There is a complete silence and then, he will say:  "I am having trouble making 
a wi-fi connection. 
Try again in a moment or two!" which I do;  sometimes, it has the desired 
effect, sometimes not!
Is there a setting which I should adjust?
As an alternative to Siri, I used to be able to bring up "Google assist" and 
"OK Google" but, I 
cannot do that any longer.  I assume that they are still available and is, 
simply, that I have 
forgotten how I did it!

>From getting the latest news to checking the weather, discover more ways
that Siri on HomePod can help you get answers to everyday questions.
Plan ahead
Siri on HomePod can help you check the weather, find places to go, and check
traffic so you can get to where you're going on time.

Check the weather
Want to know if you should wear a coat or bring an umbrella? Just ask Siri.
Say "Hey Siri," then say something like:
. "What's the temperature outside?"
. "Do I need an umbrella today?"
. "How's the weather tomorrow?"

Find places
Want to try a new restaurant? Or want to know what time the grocery store
closes? Just ask Siri. Say "Hey Siri," then you can ask things like:
. "Where's a great place to eat Mexican food?"

. "Where's the closest gas station?"


Check traffic
Whether you're on your way to work or just want to know how long it takes to
get somewhere, Siri can help. Say "Hey Siri," then say something like:
. "What's the traffic like getting to work?"

Want to switch to a different news source? Say something like, "Hey Siri,
switch to NPR instead."

More ways to use Siri on HomePod
Siri on HomePod is great at answering questions about the things you want to
know and do in your home. Here's what you can do.

Cook with Siri
Need a little help in the kitchen? Siri can help you measure ingredients,
set a timer, and even help you count calories. Say "Hey Siri," then you can
say things like:
. "How many cups are in a quart?"
. "Set a timer for 45 minutes."
. "Pause the timer."
. "How much time is left on the timer?"

another city? Siri can help. Say "Hey Siri," then say something like:
. "What time is it in Berlin?"
. "When is daylight saving time?"
. "Wake me up tomorrow at 6:00 a.m."
. "Change my 6:00 a.m alarm to 6:30 a.m."
When the alarm goes off, you can say "Hey Siri, snooze" or "Hey Siri, stop."


Ask Siri to translate
You can ask Siri in English how to say something in Mandarin, Spanish,
French, German, or Italian. Say "Hey Siri," then you can ask things like:
. "How do you say 'nice to meet you' in Mandarin?"
. "How do you say 'thank you' in Italian?"
