Metamask renistaled but can't add the ledger

Hello everyone.

Before I reinstalled the MetaMask, my MM worked perfectly with the Ledger.
After reinstalling my MM, I cannot connect the ledger.

When I want to add the ledger, I cannot select my address. It is visible but not selectable. So I can’t set a check mark.
Here on the photo you can see that the check mark is already set. But the ledger is not connected. And I can’t remove the check mark.

When I make transactions, the request from the ledger does not come.
The transaction is processed but without the ledger.

I have now uninstalled and reinstalled MM for the second time. But it still does not work.
Thanks for your help

Hi @Leguani ,

Take a look at this article from Ledger and let us know if it helps!


Unfortunely this not helps.

Confirming you are on desktop/laptop?

What happens when you click “connect hardware wallet” here:

I got two Ledger Nano and agree that some times it can be pretty hard to get the first connection to work. I had to do it many times over and over before it worked for me. I had to try different browsers before MM found my hardware wallets. I got it to work in Firefox and Edge, but never in Chrome. Maybe you could try in another browser ?


Hi @Leguani

You can also check to see if your browser permissions are on. Will leave a screenshot here with the guiding steps:


Yes, I am on a laptop.
After I click on connect hardwallet, I come to this menu

After clicking on the ledger symbol this menu appears


there is my address with a check mark in the first place. That means the ledger is linked, but it is not. And I can’t remove the check mark.

I am on firefox. So far it has worked without any problems.
