I have just changed my I ternet provider to BT and have got a Smart Hub 2. I am trying to connect my Reolink Argus 2 cameras up but every time they try to connect with the router it says connection to router failed. Has anyone got any ideas why
Solved! Go to Solution.
have you turned of smart setup
Did you give your cameras static IP addresses with your previous provider, if so they may have been in a different subnet that the BT hub uses.
I doubt you have in that case.
You could try turning off the 5ghz wireless on the hub. Some devices sometimes get confused by the 2.4ghz and 5 GHz WiFi having the same SSID. You can turn it off in advanced wireless settings.
Is there a factory reset button on the camera, if so try a reset to clear out any previous config.
I have finally got them to work.
Might sound like a strange thing but I tried setting them up on another devise and the barcode on the back of the camera had to be entered manually rather than scanning it once I did it this way it worked don't know why or what the difference is from scanning the barcode or entering it manually but when I scanned it it wouldn't connect to router but when I entered it manually it worked.
Thank you to everyone who has offered advise
