Wyze Base Station refuses to connect to wifi

After having the base setup, I’ve been trying to switch the connection to Wifi (2.4 GHz) as I did many times in the past. No matter what I try, the base blue LED keeps flashing, eventually timing out. A few FW ago it was working just fine, now seemingly this feature is broken just like other FW updates for other devices.

What firmware is on the base station? and confirming it works when connected via Ethernet cable?

Here is the trouble shooting page for this from the Wyze Support website. Tried all these steps?

Thank you for your support.
What firmware is on the base station? 4.16.3.17
Confirming it works when connected via Ethernet cable? Yes, absolutely connected via Ethernet cable.

The result is, * Connect via Wi-Fi.

  1. Unplug the Base Station from your router.
  2. The status light will flash blue, then turn solid once complete. You’re all set!

The blue LED keeps flashing forever, nonstop, after a few minutes eventually it stops, then it starts flashing again nonstop.

Switching over to wifi worked perfectly with prior fw - 2-3 updates ago. I truly believe it’s a fw issue, not hw.
