Does your router’s firmware allow you to look at the log file to see how often it is getting DHCP requests from the cameras? I am just trying to determine if the disconnects are at layer 2 (wifi) or layer 3 (internet).
If you live next to many other wifi routers, I would recommend using 20MHz channel width in the 2.4GHz band, and try to convince your neighbors to as well.
Maybe someone has a crappy microwave oven that is interfering and causing disconnects.
Or there may be someone that is intentionally using a wifi jammer that sends deauthentication frames to “competing” MAC addresses.
This isn’t a universal problem, I can connect to all 4 cameras from my Nexus 5x Android 8.0.1, using Wyze App 1.3.125 and v1 fw 184.108.40.206 and v2 fw220.127.116.11. A v1 and v2 local, and a v1 and v2 remote.
But neither is in a highly congested 2.4GHz network, and Cable internet both sites.
If you have an SD card in your cameras, you may want to capture logs from App and cameras.
I do not think the camera is falling of the network at all. As i can access it much more reliably if I use BlueStacks on my computer to access it over same LAN. Streamed them for about 4hrs no issue. Or via another wifi network outside of mine. The login hang still happens on my phone, but far less often outside of my network.
I have an extremely crowed 2.4g environment. Already set to 20mhz. And this environment never had any effect on the old dlink cams i had before. The only things I have on 2.4 band. All my other devices are 5gh AC.
Odd way to “capture” log files…put the sd card in and out right away. I would assume that transferrers the current generating log file from the cams internal memory to the sd card. Cause otherwise, that is useless to just generate a log file for those few seconds.
I am not very keen to mess with the sd card as its a pain in the ass design, having it in the bottom, so u have to unmount the cam…then take the time to re-position the it just right again. there is no reason they cant just have a “download cam log file” option built right into the app. My dlinks had that.
