ORBI and Amcrest/Foscam

I recently had verizon switch my older coax for ethernet so I could switch to ORBI.    The ORBI system worked great and I get excellent coverage.ut f

 

The only strange occurrence is with AMCREST/FOSCAM.  I have about 4 of them.   I have used them all for multiple years and know how to port forward and use them with Blue iris.  SO I  did a factory default on all 4.  But for some reason I am not able to log into 3 of three of them and none even seem happy to connect to wifi.  I tried using the verizon as a secondary router and connect to it and still have an issue.

 

I know there has been some discussion on this about 2.4GHZ connectivity but find this pretty strange   I can see one camera

The FI9803 outdoor cam is an issue'

The Foscam C1 will connect but will not allow me to log in wirelessly

And IP3M-941B will let me log in and I can see it remotely but not with blue iris

I hae an identical IP3M-941B at another location and have no issues with viewing it ( same settings) and I double checked the password

 

 

In short, can any one either help or recommend both an IP Cam for indoor and outdoor use that works well with orbi?  many thanks

Re: ORBI and Amcrest/Foscam

If you put the older wifi back online and they still have problems conneting it it, I presume there maybe problems with the cameras.

 

Try disabling the following and see:
MIMO, Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming, IPv6 and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only. Save settings and reboot the router and satellite(s). Advanced Wireless Settings both 2.4GHz and 5GHz changed CTS/RTS Threshold to 2307.

Try changing the CTR/RTS threshold values for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz (2341 and 2345 respectively), changed preamble modes to long preamble, and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only.

Re: ORBI and Amcrest/Foscam

Thank you.   The Foscam's are all working but I stil have problems with the Amcrest for some reason.   I set up port forwarding on the router. I can easily see the port is open on canyouseeme.org.   But when I try to view them on blue iris.. nada.   I know how to use blue iris and have not experienced this before.   I ditched the verizon router.  Other than that one quirk,  the Orbi system works perfectly.  I will ditch the old amcres cameras and pick up a few Foscams.  I am not using many cameras.

 

thanks
