I have v2 that has not been used and upgraded firmware since last year. I know it’s out of date. I tried to manually updated the firmware to 220.127.116.118 (July 21, 2021) and everything seemed to be okay. Then when adding a new device to the app (v2.23.23) and after scanning the QR code, the cam v2 kept saying " Cannot find specified network name". I’m 100% sure the SSID and password entered correctly. I also double checked and followed this troubleshooting but no luck
I also did try the factory reset but did not help.
Does anyone have the same issue? Or any suggestion to resolve this.
Most likely your WiFi is trying to get the camera to use 5 GHz (which the Wyze cameras are not physically able to use).
I inadvertently ran into that over the weekend. I had to redo the setup of one of my cameras. I have two band specific SSIDs used for IoT devices - …IoT-2G and …IoT-5G. I made sure my phone was connected to the 2.4 GHz SSID and did the setup. Camera could not find the specified network. Say what - I’m standing about 3 feet from the access point. Tried again, and realized that I was connected to the 5G network and had mis-read it when doing the setup. Tried again with the 2G and it worked just fine…
ok. so I THINK I might know what the issue is. but first let me ask, how many devices do you have connected to it generally?
this router is getting up there in age ( in technological rates, kind of like dog year math ) being ISP provided, many ISP’s limit the number of connections their router can handle. being the simplest solution this is what first popped into my mind.
you could prove or dispel this with your answer to the first question
the ISP connection limit is something we have run into many times over the years so its become one of those defaults for trouble shooting.
Assume you’ve used a 32Gb (or smaller) uSD card format in FAT32 for the demo.bin file.
You were able to select your network name (SSID) and put in your (WiFi) password.
The Camera’s receiver must be working. Perhaps it’s not transmitting to get an ACK from the router.
Out of ideas. Calling for next expert!
