I changed wifi mode from “b/g/n” mixed mode to “g” only. The more than one year long connection issue finally fixed for all 3 cams. Not sure if this only related to my Totolink-A6004NS router.
update: I am still using 2.4 and 5GHz on same router. The mode change is only for 2.4GHz.
Here’s the full story:
I have been using 3 cams (2 Cam Pan and 1 Cam) for more than 1 year. There’re occasional disconnect from time to time. For example working now, offline when checked few seconds later, then online again after few minutes. Their connectivity seems unstable compared with other brands of cams in same area. And it’s still quite frequent even with latest Aug firmware.
I wonder if there’re some router settings i overlooked. However the only official guideline about WYZE product is choosing a less crowded channel. I even thought it may be I were using them in Asia.
As the connection problem become more and more serious, I am almost considering buying new cams but still want to have a last try to fine tune my wifi on Totolink-A6004NS router.
After tried wifi whitelist, channel, and then “g” mode, Bingo!
(If there were “g” only mode I would definitely try it also.)
Every cams connected and streaming in just 1-2 seconds now and no more frequent error code or off-line black screen. It’s the expected performance for long time! I am so glad that it’s just like getting 3 brand new cams.
Hope it’s helpful for someone with same problem!
