Just received 2 wyze V2 cams from Amazon earlier this week. Was excited to see how easy they were to set up. Joy was short lived when i found out the cameras present -90 or -27 errors on and off every 10-20 minutes. The camera will run for a bit, then i’ll try to log in again 10 minutes later, and i get errors. Rinse/repeat.
Before I return these wanted to try for any ideas. I’ll walk through my configuration:
2 cameras. One on latest firmware, one on stock 184.108.40.206 (was wondering if the new firmware was causing problems, so i left one stock)
-90 errors and -27 errors happen on both local network and remote.
When the errors happen the blue light is either blinking, or solid. Doesn’t seem to be a correlation
The light will go from solid blue to blinking blue, and back to solid frequently.
The intermittent connectivity happens with and without SD card installed
I’ve reflashed one of the 2 cams using the SD card to the latest firmware - no help
I’ve assigned static IPs (MAC address allocation) to both cameras - no help
My router channel is set (not auto)
My 2.4Ghz is set to run on 20Mhz - No help
I’ve removed and readded the cameras multiple times. No help
I’ve factory reset the cameras - No help
I’ve lowered the resolution to SD. No help
The cameras are about 20’ from an Asus AC-68U running Merlin firmware
I have a 150Mbps/15Mbps connection. Tested to those speeds. I have about 15 clients on the 2.4Ghz band on the router. (many are passive and take no bandwidth almost).
I’ve gone through everything Wyze support has suggested - no help
Wyze support had me run “RouteThisHelps” app and send them the info. The bottom line conclusion was " the Comcast “performance plus” which has Upto 150 Mbps is only good for Up to 8 devices at a time and as per checking your routethis result, the devices that are connected to your network right now is more than 15 and it is the possible reason for your intermittent connection between the camera to your router."
I asked him how the number of devices on a network using no bandwidth would affect connectivity. No real answer. Said to unplug devices and try again.
Never mind the fact that my Foscam and my random chinese camera have had no issues at all.
I think i captured it all. Any ideas or help appreciated. I’d love to get the working as they’re pleasant looking and the app is nice (compared to these random chinese cams).
