Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Thanks, that's clear and setup does sound similar. I think the hardest part of this is going to be to find a someone to do the installation of the cables for us. Unfortunately ill health means that we are unable to do this ourselves this year :cry: I'm OK with the setup stuff and mapping it all out,...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Thank you. We’ve had some recommendations that the WiFi isn’t the problem so we are now testing hard wiring them in 😬

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

OK, so I plug Switch into the router and then the BI PC into the switch along with the cameras. Where do I plug the power adaptors into, the Router (as they currently are) or the switch? Going to have to think carefully where to position the switch as there’s going to be a lot of cables going into i...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Thank you, again! It was plugged directly into the router and bit rate set to 2048kpbs, Frame rate 25 and stream control Variable Bit Rate. It looks like those are the highest settings I can select for this camera. If my memory is correct, some of the newer ones have the option to go higher. The swi...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

We are going to look into running ethernet cables via a TP Link Ethernet Switch. We wanted to test one of the cameras at the front of our home to see if it made a difference. We ran a very long ethernet cable to this camera, turned wifi off on the camera, yet still this morning we are getting some p...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

I use wifiinfoview on one of our PCs to see which wifis are in the area and what channels they are using. Our routers are kicking out on channel 1 and the neighbours that it's picking up are on channels 10 and 11.

Will check out the new router capabilities

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Here's an example of the messages I'm seeing on one of the cameras where we are currently seeing losing signal

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

I read your post with interest as we have similar issues. We’ve been running inexpensive wifi cameras from Amazon for about 4 years now and have been using Blue Iris to manage them for most of that time. They have had their issues, but on the whole have been fairly stable for the price of them. The ...

Re: New Router & Samsung SmartCam help

Thanks TimG So after a late night I think I've made some progress 🤞 I did notice an SSID on our network that I hadn't noticed before so after some investigation it was one of our new replacement IP Wifi Cameras that we installed yesterday. Never seen this before. I turned P2P platform off on the cam...

Re: New Router & Samsung SmartCam help

Don’t think so. I tried entering the IP address into the Chrome search bar and it didn’t come up with anything, just an error. I’ve been able to view it on the Samsung SmartCam App or by logging in to Samsung account on Windows browser. Samsung won’t let you use a Chrome or safari Browser to login w...
