I recently purchased a set of zmodo wireless cameras, but i have been encountering some issues with getting them setup.
If i attempt to set them up via zlink, rather with meshare or the zmodo app it will always time out. The cameras will however, go blue LED and pair to my network. I can note the DHCP assigned IPs and MACs on my router, and i can d/c certain cameras and notice that they will go up/down. I can ping them from a computer, but i cannot get them to setup in the zmodo app, nor can i get video from them in a 3rd party app (android).
Once they are installed, attempting to install via smart kit will see the DVR but will error out with “network over time” as soon as i attempt to name it, even though i can ping it from any of my computers and it is in the same room with my router. The same goes for adding cameras as wireless devices,i can see them but the same issue occurs as soon as you attempt to name them.
I have attempted this on both a dual band and 2.4ghz only router, with the same results across both meshare and the zmodo app.
The setup is correct as far as i can tell for zmodo setup:
-no space in ssid, ssid not hidden.
-no special characters in pw or ssid.
-no tkip, aes in use.
-2.4ghz (g only set even on the n capable router).
Assistance and input would be appreciated.
