Limited WiFi range?

I’ve tried my “pan” in two homes (1,400 & 1,900 sqft) and have basically line of sight connect ability only from both routers. I have no issues with signal strength on iPads & laptops.

It works fine until a wall gets in the way. Any ideas?

thanks in advance,


You could try changing WiFi channel on the router. If you have the technology (a WiFi analyzer app on your smartphone, or a scanning feature in the router), do a spectrum scan and pick the least busy channel.

If that doesn’t help, get a WiFi repeater, and locate it half-way between the cam and the router.


Found that an external usb Wifi adapter will increase the range of a first gen Wyze cam.
Just plug it into the USB slot on the back of the camera.
