I just bought a Samsung Smartcam. I have followed the wireless setup several times( a 100) but the device won't connect to my wifi. Troubleshooting suggest it may be a router issue.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried unplugging your router for about ten seconds? And what about other devices? Do they have connectivity?

My Roku and DVD connected without issue but a wifi weight scale won't connect either. I gave up on that. Is my security WEP or WPA?

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I had a landline installed and had to replace the router to accommodate it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

No. Thanks.

Windows 10, the smartcam doesn't connect to wifi and times out. Arris /TG1682g.

I do not want to securely connect
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
are you still there?

With remote support, you can see everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Business Bureau website:
http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/professional-services-general/justanswer-in-san-francisco-ca-82403/
Remote support is quicker and easier for you as I will do all the troubleshooting steps for you. Also, this issue can be complicated. Otherwise, I will provide written instructions.

Are you able to log in your Arris router through your Windows 10 computer?
How about with a small amount as shown for direct remote support?
Please let me know your option; we guarantee our service. Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

I will attempt to log in to my router
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What do you want me to do now. I have verified my password ***** SSID.

OK, be careful with changing anything on your router as it might affect the connection on your devices, such as computer, roku, dvd, etc. Once you have logged in your router, go to the Wireless / security option and check the security / encryption type / option it is showing there.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What will you be accessing? Just my router. I don't want to give you passwords.

That's correct. Just your router, and you don't need to give me any password. Thank you.

I just told you I don't want you in my computer.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The device only connects through my Android.

I would need to connect to your computer in order to log in your router through your computer, so I can check on the router's settings. I will only check on the router, nothing else. You can see everything I do on the computer's screen. Thank you.

Thank you.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It is already WPA2-psk(AES) recommended.

No, can you set it to WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES)..., then save the settings? Or can you tell me all the security mode options there?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I will set to wpa/wpa2-psk (tkip/aes

Yes, please do that, then save. Then wait a few minutes, then try to set up Samsung Smartcam again. Thank you.

I will try now.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The camera only gives option for WEP, None and WPA2-psk(AES).

Please make sure you did select WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) and save on the router first. Then disconnect power from camera for a minute, then re-connect, then try to set up the camera again. If the camera does not give any other option, then select WPA2-psk(AES) for the camera. Thanks.

reconnecting..

If it still does not work, disconnect the power cord from your Arris TG1682g router for a couple of minutes, then re-connect, then wait a couple of minutes. Then disconnect / reconnect power cord of camera again and try again.

Does it ask for password ***** setting up the camera?

Thank you.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It does ask for a password ***** I did verify the password. The new WPA2 did not work will set it back to original setting before I power down router.

No, do not set back to original. Please keep WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) on the router, then disconnect / reconnect router / camera and try again. Thank you.

No go..... What next?

Did you confirm the Wi-Fi / network password ***** passphrase in Gateway -> Connection -> Wi-Fi -> EDIT at the website http://10.0.0.1/?

Also, there should be two network names (SSID) showing at Gateway -> Connection -> Wi-Fi. Can you make sure both network names' encryption mode are set to WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES)...?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
on both items. I am changing back to original WPA...

Should not change back to original WPA... as all your devices should still be working.

Did you confirm passwords for both network names / items at Gateway -> Connection -> Wi-Fi?

Can you test if you can connect the weight scale with option WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) set on router?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
