BLINK XT - LIVE VIEW

Hello,

 

I recently have upgraded my router and WIFI system by purchasing the Orbi WIFI system to replace my Linksys router that wasn't giving enough coverage.

 

However, since changing over to my new Orbi system - i am unable to get my Amazon, Blink wireless CCTV cameras to push a live feed to me.

I've seen some previous posts of the BLINK doorbell giving issues, so i can only presume Blink has the same problems.

 

Ideally,  i would love a fix or a workaround. Any ideas? Thanks!

What FW is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the IP modem the Orbi is connected too?
I would contact the Mfr of these cameras to seek additional help and information as well. Maybe some compatibility issues.


What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials.

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?
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).

My Setup (Cable 1Gbps/50Mbps)>CM1200 v2.02.03(LAG Disabled)>RBK853 v3.2.17.12
RBK50 v2.7.2.104(WW) Circle Enabled
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CAX80/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111
