Got a new camera (will be 6th I have, so I know how this should work) right before Covid hit. I have two networks at the house. An older 802.11 AC network for just camera’s & smart builbs and a newer 802.11AX network for my PCs, phones, tablets etc.
Setting this up, I connect my phone to the 802.11 AC network on 2.4 GHZ band. I then go through the setup process of adding the new camera. It scans the barcode just fine and tries to finish setting it up. But it eventually keeps coming back and says it failed to connect. I’ve done this many times (resetting the camera each time) and I’ve reset the router many times as well yet still have the same issue.
To eliminate the AC router, I change my phone to the AX network on the 2.4GHz band and try the setup process again. Again the same issue with the same troubleshooting process.
Do I write this up as a bad camera after all of this? Today I tried all this again just in case but still no good.
