Hi @Frbarnes1975

 

Have you tried on the Arlo mobile app & web portal?

Are you trying to connect to a Base Station/SmartHub or directly to your router?

I had the same issue and after trying many things including calling CS, I found that my wifi password was wrong. I entered the correct one and it worked! Just bought these today and setup takes a while especially because instructions aren't too detail. Hope it helps.

Any luck on this? I'm going to send it back tomorrow if not. I tried everything. Only thing I can think of is SSID is wrong somehow.. Maybe not include dash etc. I've tried app, mobile web, reset, complete charge. It scans fine on 2g.. But still nothing. Blinks blue then red after timing out

Seddy21086,

 

At what point are you experiencing the issue? Could you provide a screenshot of the error you're seeing?
