RLC-823A & RLC-523WA Tracking Beta 4.0 Firmware: Added Auto-tracking Horizontal Range & Schedule
I have 4 Reolink cameras one of which (410W) had failed. Transformer OK but camera dead. Decided to order a new RLC-410W from the Reolink store as replacement (Order #2017640)But irrespective of how many times I scan the QR code by either my phone or tablet, the result is always the same - connection failed. For a further test, I connected the camera by Ethernet cable. The camera output can now be viewed on all devices. On the PC, under WiFi settings, I can enter my WiFi password and press Test. The test results produce a Success message. The camera is now listed on my routers list of WiFi devices but with a Null IP addressWhen I unplug the Ethernet cable, the output can no longer be viewed on any device. Efforts to connect to WiFi continue to fail.Can you please explain how I can connect this camera to WiFi or should I return the product for a refundTom
@tomselbyuk_331910860959874 Could you please try to reset your camera and reconfigure the camera again? You can also try to check your router if the camera is connected.You can reset the camera according to this article, https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003516613-How-to-Reset-Bullet-or-Dome-Cameras.
@reolink-fiona Thank you for your suggestion which I have now tried a couple of times. However having scanned the QR code on my tablet, after message "Connecting your device..." after a delay I get the Connection Failed message with option to retry or cancel. I have also repeated this a few times on my smartphone - same result
@reolink-fiona Further to my post, i have now succeeded in connecting to WiFi. I first connected to my network by Ethernet cable. The device then appeared on my tablet as Uninitialised. I then gave a password and subsequently it invited me to add the WiFi password. I then pressed Save, and disconnected the Ethernet cable and the camera connected by WiFi. This seems a far better way to set up this type of camera. Perhaps you should add it too the set-up leaflet
@tomselbyuk_331910860959874Thank you for your update and feedback. I haven't noticed this point before. For the wifi camera with the ethernet port, the camera needs to configure the wifi with the ethernet port. After configuration, you can take off the ethernet cable.
