Arlo Bridge Model ABB1000 Will not connect to WiFi

I have tried at least 10 times to sync the light bridge, with no success. I am able to get to the point where I begin the connection to Wifi and it fails every time. I have the bridge within 3 feet of the wireless router. I have factory reset the device multiple times, it never works. Do I have other options or is it defective?

Any clues as to what happens when it fails?

 

Any messages you can read?

Hi @ToddBruin,

 

Try to read this article to see how you can troubleshoot your Arlo Bridge that is unable to connect to your WiFi: I can't set up the Arlo Bridge that came with my Arlo Light Security system; what do I do?

I have confirmed all of these.  I have the bridge 3 feet from the router, no walls in between.  Everything is on the same network, etc.  I still get the same unable to connect to Wifi message.

What router are you trying to connect to?

 

Does it have separate SSIDs for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz?

 

I ask because with other wifi devices people find that having "Smart Connect" enabled can confuse the wifi clients.

 

I must admit that I have seen no mention of this for the Arlo bridge, but any information can help to diagnose what is going on.

I am using the Cox provided Panoramic Gigablast router with the Arlo hard wired directly into it.  I have the 2.4 and 5 gHZ separated such that I do not even broadcast my 5gHZ SSID .
