How to Configure Wireless Settings of the Wi-Fi Camera

 

When using the Wi-Fi camera for the first time, you need to plug the camera into the LAN port of the router and configure the wireless settings for it. Here we introduce two ways for configurations: using Reolink Client on PC or Reolink App on the smartphone.

Use Reolink Client to configure wireless settings:

Step 1. Plug the camera into the router’s LAN port by an Ethernet cable. Make sure the camera is powered on.

Step 2. Make sure your PC is on the same local network with the router, launch the Reolink client software and login to your camera.

Step 3. Click on “Device Settings”.

Step 4. Click on “WiFi Settings” under “Network“.

Step 5. Click on “Scan”, then double-click on the SSID you would like to connect and input its password, click on “Wi-Fi Test” after it shows “Wi-Fi Test Succeed”, click “OK” to save the settings.

Step 6. Please disconnect the Ethernet cable between the camera and the router. Wait for a moment, the camera will connect to the router via Wi-Fi.

Use Reolink App to configure wireless settings:

If you would like to use the smartphone, please follow the steps below:

Step 1. Plug the camera into the router’s LAN port by an Ethernet cable. Make sure the camera is powered on.

Step 2. Launch Reolink App and login to the camera, tap the “Device Settings” icon, and go to “Wi-Fi”.

Step 3. Please select the SSID you would like to connect and input the password in the “Password” field, tap on “Wi-Fi Test” to test the connectivity.

             

 

Step 4. If it shows the success message like this, then you can hit the “Save” icon on the top left-hand to save the settings.

            

        Yet, if it shows the error message like below, turn to Troubleshooting-Wi-Fi Test Failed for help.

Step 5. Disconnect the Ethernet cable between the camera and the router. Wait for a moment, the camera will connect to the router via Wi-Fi.
