My single Wansview camera having worked fine with my previous router , will not connect to the network now I have a New BT Smart hub 2 . According to Wansview customer support the issue is the BT hub and they say BT are working on the problem . Wansview temp. solution is to change the DNS to 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 which are public servers .I have done this but no change . I am not a tecki and out of my depth . In their words ....
'we found the cause is the BT provider's DNS server has problem and resolve our server to an unknown IP address which make it cannot visit our server.
The problem will be solved automatically when BT DNS server is back. (it seems that they need longer time to fix it)
My question is , is anyone else having problems?
can anyone for BT confirm this? are you actually doing anything about it ?
have you turned of smart setup
You may have to temporarily disable the 5GHz Wi-Fi from the home hub.
I assume you mean our off smart set up ? will investigate this is new to me
just follow the link I posted
Hi thanks for reply ,you may be onto something the Wansview site states .
Can't connect the camera to WIFI successfully?A: Please make sure your phone is connected to 2.4Ghz WIFI(5Ghz WIFI is not supported) and the camera must be set within 3 feet of the router during setup.
My phone is connected to Wi-fi to my router , but if my router has both 2.5 and 5 accesible can't the camera just use link to the right 2.5 one ? do I have to disable the 5 ? . If I do disable the 5 what effect is that going to have on : my TP link extender , Tv's , Hive etc.
your camera should automatically connect to the 2.4ghz network as it cannot 'see' the 5ghz network but some devices do have problems with the combined networks of the hub so you turn off the 5ghz network then connect your camera to 2.4ghz and once connected then enable the 5ghz again and camera should now remain connected
