All WiFi connectivity becomes more consistent… I have hundreds of clients (both home & office) with various configurations which I have documented (make, model, settings, etc.).
With my current configuration at the house (see 2 paragraphs below), I don’t have to modify the bandwidth settings. That’s mostly for ISP supplied equipment.
Morever, the make & model of the equipment provided/rented by ISP (internet service provider) may not be the best equipment out there (e.g., Xfinity’s (Comcast) modem router combo unit). I recommend having separate modem & router units if possible. If you are required to use their combo unit, get a separate WiFi router, configure the ISP modem for “Bridge mode” or “ IP Passthru”, & connect the ISP or WAN port of your router to one of the LAN ports on the ISP modem router combo unit… Also, turn off the WiFi on the modem router combo unit. I’ve found the higher end Netgear router & WiFi equipment to very reliable.
SPECIAL NOTE ON COMCAST XFINITY MODEM ROUTER UNITS: These units broadcast an “xfinitywifi” network EVEN IF you disable WiFi or set the modem to Bridge mode. This WiFi network can cause interference with other WiFi communications & take up some of your bandwidth (i.e., slow it down). The only way to turn it off is to login to your Comcast Xfinity account, go to Manage Internet, then turn off the Public Hotspot. It is there for other Comcast customers WiFi connectivity when away from the house.
I currently run a Hitron Gigabit modem on Suddenlink internet service. My router is a Netgear AC1900 with different names for the 2.4 & 5GHz SSIDs. I have an Apple AirPort Extreme as an access point (AP) wired back to the Netgear router. My router & AirPort Extreme both have different WiFi names as well which makes it easy when setting up the cameras.
I will be testing some cameras at one of my clients who have the commercial grade Araknis WiFi access points and other clients with the Eero WiFi mesh router & satellites. Eero’s WiFi mesh 2nd generation is impressive. I’ve been able to get WiFi working in big old houses where it was not possible to wire in WiFi access points. It costs almost $400 for a router & 2 satellites but it works & more satellites can be added to extend the network. The phone app also allows you to control which WiFi devices can access the network (good for controlling kid devices). I get no compensation for my recommendations. I’m just relating my experiences…
Lastly, electrical issues can cause problems with any electronics. Older electrical wiring, surges & sags, spikes, etc., can cause electronics to die a premature death or cause WiFi isssues due to inconsistent current to the WiFi radio.
I will be glad to help diagnose/troubleshoot others WiFi connectivity issues with their Wyze cams, time permitting. We have 18 connected with no issues. Occasionally might have to power cycle one of the cameras but that may power related. I have 12 more in the box to test.
Thanks for an EXCELLENT product!
